When we were shown this laundry room transformation we couldn’t believe it was mostly done by Bre Bertonlini, of Bre Purposed and her husband. A DIY project for the ages, this space went from being dingy to magazine-worthy in just six weeks. As part of the One Room Challenge™ – a bi-annual blogger room renovation event — Bre used her design skills and do it yourself ingenuity to create this beautiful laundry room. Can we say that it looks better than most of our living rooms?

Every week, Bre documented the progress of this project: from the very beginning, sharing her love of the DeVol kitchen, which she used as inspiration, to the painting of the room (with the new Easy Twist Paint Stick by HomeRight) and putting in the finishing touches to bring life into the space.

Our favorite moment, and perhaps the most impressive DIY project yet, was the floating bench and backboard. You can see the step by step details on how she created it, where she took inspiration from a custom-made panel for a bar to come up with her own version that she created on her own.
