Shall we play this fun game of let's pretend? Pretend I got a LOT accomplished this past week. Let's close our eyes, and picture the linoleum gone and tile being started, maybe the walls have been painted and possibly a new pretty countertop was installed. Now if you open your eyes, you will see that nothing has changed, other than a higher stack of laundry to do.
I will admit I didn't get much (aka nothing) done this week. Not for the lack of trying though. I went to Home Depot and Lowes, shopping for tile and came home with squat. Looked for a new light fixture and came home with squat. I went looking for ideas for my wall treatments, and came home with squat, zero, zilch, nada.
For first time visitors, you can see what my laundry room currently looks like here in Week 1.
Here's my original plan.
Next change is the tile. I was originally thinking I would be doing a black and white cement tile. While I really love the look of this tile, I've decided to go another direction. I know these are a show stopper and they sure are pretty but I've decided I am going for something a little more simpler in design.
I have decided to go with either white penny tile with black grout.

I am pretty confident in which one I'm going with but what would you choose?
As for the countertop, I said I was 50/50 on which direction I was going but I've made my decision.
I was thinking I would just paint the white Formica countertop with blackboard paint like I did for my bar area.
After thinking about it a bit more, the room really will need some warmth so I've decided to go with the butcher block.
Come back next week, I'll be sure to show you some new changes to the room. Cross your fingers for me.
