Our Laundry Room Reveal

Finally we are revealing our laundry room makeover!  We (the DIY rookies) could have never guessed that we could make something so ugly into something so pretty!  Just look at our new laundry room! 
I truly enjoy doing laundry now, heck everyone in our household wants to do their own laundry now! Woohoo!   With doing this tiny room makeover, we feel like now the other remodeling we will be doing in our home will be easier than we first expected.
This is what our laundry room looked like when we first moved in. Yuck!  It doesn't even look like the same room any longer.  Good thing huh?
Since I'm the one who does most of the laundry in our home, I added my favorite color in here. Red!  Just a little, not too much.  This rug is so yummy I could seriously take a nap on it.  You can see how we did the floor HERE.
My guy built the cabinets himself.  The counter top is the only store bought piece to the whole set up.  You can see more details HERE.
We searched high and low for baskets that we use for storage and finally found them at Lowe's.  I found these old laundry tags on Etsy HERE and added them to the baskets with red ribbon and just for fun the tags have each of our ages in the month we completed the room.
I also found this old glass candy jar on Etsy HERE.  It holds the wonderful homemade laundry soap that we make ourselves and use instead of the spendy store bought kind.  You can find the recipe HERE.
This little old wash board was my great grandmother's.  My Mamaw gave it to me a long time ago.  The cute little "wash" banner in front of it was made by me to add cuteness to the laundry room.  Join us again next week when I share how I made it
We love antiques and we sometimes buy things not knowing what we will do with them, a few came in handy while decorating our laundry room!  Do you love your laundry room? I sure do!

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!

  3. I'll bet you want to do laundry all day long - well almost!

    Great job - and use of space!

    My laundry room is half this size - just enough room for the stacked washer and dryer - and no room for all the cuteness that you have!

  34. OMG! This is exactly what I want to do in my own laundry room. We have overhead cabinets and no counter space. I also have no place in the entire house to store brooms and mops. None. This is great! I pinned it to show my husband!
