Once a kindergarten teacher, now your go-to guide for all things DIY. My passion for teaching didn't stop when I left the classroom - I merely switched from ABCs to DIYs. I've learned a lot from transforming my own home from scratch, and now I'm here to pass on that knowledge to you.

Hello, my friends! We’re kicking off the week with a laundry room update. A few months ago we chatted about our plans of updating this space one project at a time. We previously took down the wire shelving, added a wooden shelf above the washer and dryer, and now that same wall received a HUGE update by adding cabinetry and subway tile. We’re more than thrilled to be sharing it with you today!
When we first started planning our laundry room, we knew we wanted an accent wall to really bring design to the space. Not only to make the chore of laundry more enjoyable, but because the laundry room is visible from some of the main areas of our home. Therefore, we wanted to blend our laundry room with the rest of our home and not a separate area that we would want to avoid. Don’t be afraid to pay your laundry room a little attention!
We started updating this space by adding a pair of cabinets that I found thrifting one afternoon. Here’s what I came home with:
Right away we painted them the same color as our kitchen cabinets, Outerspace by Sherwin-Williams, for an instant makeover. Now we have extra storage and cabinets that look brand new!
With the cabinets in place, it was time to install our subway tile. Our goal was to create a feature wall that would stay within our budget, wasn’t time consuming to install (hello toddler), and didn’t require major tools and leave a big mess behind. Most importantly though, we still wanted the look of real tile.
Which is exactly why we went with3-D adhesive tiles by Tic Tac Tiles. We loved how theMono White Subway Tiles turned out in our kitchen, so we decided to use the same ones in our laundry room. And you guys, these are a game changer when it comes to adding tile to a wall. They only took an afternoon (2 hours) to install because you literally peel and stick the tiles to the wall. But, here’s the thing. They look SO real! Even close up it’s hard to tell these are peel and stick tiles. Here’s a great way to see the difference Tic Tac Tiles made in our space:
Our style is changing (going away from farmhouse) and it’s becoming more modern, mixing in bold statements, and still adding in the neutrals. I’d have to say between the combination of our thrifted cabinets and tiles applied to the wall, that’s exactly where we’re going with this space. We also added a fiddle leaf fig, a few accessories to the shelf and checked one more thing off our laundry room to-do list for this super successful weekend project!
And we saved the best for last. You can see our process from beginning to end of installing Tic Tac Tiles in our laundry room! We’re giving you the step-by-step in hopes that our video will help you transform a space in your home using these tiles.
