The water supply pipes would not be that big of a deal. Your biggest problem would be the drain. From your existing laundry room, the drain pipe (trap arm) may go left or right in the wall. You need to find where it connects to a vertical pipe.
You may get lucky and find the drain/vent right behind your location. If so, you need to cut out the 'tee' and install a double 'tee' so both the sink and laundry dump and vent into the same pipe.This is pretty easy if it's ABS (plastic)
Depending on the supply piping, copper would be the easiest to tap, galvanized the hardest. You would also have some sheetrock work
It's a bit bigger job but still in the realm of a DIY. As a die-hard DIY, I'd give it a 6 out of 10 on the complexity meter (since you have carpentry, finishing, plumbing, DWV).
Check out the Home Depot's 'Home Improvement 123' manual for a few ideas of what is involved.
