Laundry Room DIY {Progress update 1}

I am so happy to be sharing a fun update with you today on our laundry room. 
 
I just got back from a 5 day vacation with 4 other amazing and fun women to sunny Los Angeles California where we literally had the time of our lives.  I will share that fun with you very soon.
 
While I was away my amazing husband was working hard on a surprise for me when I returned.
 
I last left you with this post and this picture:
 
 
 
Like most people these days, I am in love with planked walls.  We have a couple in our home, and I wanted to change it up a bit in our laundry room. 
 
I scored some more free wood from the mill near my work once again and told my hubby about my wild idea.  At first he was against it, and then next moment he's in the laundry room putting it all up.
 
 

 
It looked pretty neat in it's natural color, however It was not the look I was going for. 
 
 Once the planks were installed we used our Graco paint sprayer to apply the primer on the wall and the cabinets.
 
 
 
 
 
 
It sat like this for about a week, and then mama left town!
 
This is what I came home to:
 
 
 
 
I am beyond thrilled with how this turned out, and was a very happy wife returning home to see this!  
 
He used the synthetic oil paint again to give it that hard shell finish for a longer lifetime and durability.  I have already started decorating and planning for the other side of the room, and can't wait to share the final reveal with you.
 
We are also in the process of getting the sink plumbed and installed.  I am still searching for the perfect faucet.
 
Thank you all for stopping by to see the progress that has been made on this fun laundry room!
 
Please be sure to follow me on Pinterest and Facebook, and head over here to see where I like to party each week!
 
I hope you have a fantastic DIY day!
