Laundry Room Reveal

This was my sad and ugly laundry room, it's depressing isn't it?? Until this happened.... TA DA!!

I went shopping around my home, and used left over paint from my daughter's bathroom. I did have to buy the shelf abover the washer and dryer at Lowe's for $20, but that all the spending I had to do ( for now).

This is the left side, the black basket rest on a $2 tall deep drawer organizer I purchased at a garage sale a while back. It stores my bleach, light bulbs, dryer balls, and other junk.

The little cute wooden blocks were a goodwill find, I was originally going to paint them white with blk letters, but then this happened. Oh the urn, bird, sm white saucer, and the pic frame chalkboard are also goodwill finds (pic frame was an ugly shiny silver b4).

There's my favorite number 2! My cute chef has been with me for 5 years, I love him!



This small cork board was $1 at GW.

This is the door my husband exits every morning, so he has no excuse to miss his "Honey do List"! It will be filled by Friday, hehe.

I will eventually add trim around the chalkboard and replace the ugly door knob. I will also add a black carpet I already have until I find a cute black and white diamond pattern one. I do need suggestions on what to add above the chef pictures, it looks unfinished. Any ideas???

I still hate laundry days, but this will make it more inviting for me. Thank you so much for stopping by, hope you enjoyed it.

I will be linking up to

I have COMPLETE AND TOTAL laundry-room envy! I have been wanting to paint the interior of mine, even though it's only a closet and you can't walk into it. This will be my inspiration!

Now that is one room I wouldn't mind doing laundry in. In fact I would probably pull up a chair and read a magazine while the laundry washed and dried. Very inviting.

The Persimmon Perch said...

Oh...please come over and do mine. Yours looks great! The shelf is a great idea.

Michelle said...
