Remember that crazy construction-cone-orange laundry room?

A couple of months ago I posted asking for tips on how to tackle re-painting my laundry room that was a ridiculous construction cone orange - even the wires were painted! I finally finished today. I did have a Benjamin Moore color consultant come out to help choose the color ("Filtered Sunlight") because the lighting was difficult to work with. She did a great job!

Here's the original thread: Tips for painting older laundry room (lots of wires and pipes...)

Very nice - yeah I would call that decorating ala safety cone.

Dealt with something similar on our house except it was pepto bismal pink. Not bubble gum not pretty little girls room pink...but in yo face bright as a halogen pepto bismal pink.

It's amazing what a good paint color choice can do to a room.
