Part 3: The big reveal!
(Part One: BEFORE, Part Two: DURING)
My laundry room / entry way (we always use the back door, the front door is for "strangers" ha ha, I am in bliss over this totally DIY makeover on an extreme budget.
The wardrobe was in fine condition, cost $80 at St Vincents, and really only needed the paint and stencil to spiff it up. The cupboard which I used for the kitty litter furniture was $25, plus $15 for the paint. (Behr's Premium primer and paint in one. I can't remember the color, but some gorgeous light blue-green.) After just one coat I decided I did not want to do a second coat, the paint quality was fantastic, so I just roughed it up a bit with hammer pounding, screwdriver chunks and chinks, and sandpaper here and there.
|I had to cut the opening taller as one of our cats is a very tall boy. So the opening now measures 16" high by almost 8" wide. Perfect size!|
|How totally cute is this? I am in love! There's a window just above so we keep that cracked a wee bit, and you would NEVER guess we have four cats and an active litter box in our entry way. We do empty it morning and night, fyi.|
|Had to make myself a fun little sign to entice me to enjoy doing laundry more often.|
|The stencil came out really nicely.....and i scuffed it all up to look like it had been there for many years.|
That's it, hope you enjoyed my DIY project. It's all Art, folks....painting, hammering, singing, writing, sipping coffee with good friends. Art is Living!
Blessings and Paint On!
