Installing Molding and Wainscoting to a Laundry Room

Su Casa: A Lemon Laundry Room

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member dezignerwannabe of the Su Casa group:

Since our puppy chewed all of the baseboards and door frames, we had no choice but to redo this room. It's a tiny, dark, narrow space to do laundry in and let's face it, who likes to do laundry? I wanted a fresh happy color so I chose yellow. Yellow is a difficult color to work with and we tried at least three hues before choosing this one.

The room had no cabinetry so we installed overhead cabinets and broom closet ourselves which we bought in the garage storage section at a major home improvement store. After my husband redid the door frames and base boards he thought it would be fun to try adding crown molding and wainscoting. He'd never done it before and we figured if it came out bad, it was the laundry room so no biggie. But it turned out looking pretty good and now I actually enjoy doing laundry! Plus, our two cats now have an awesome hang out.
