Then everything just seemed to fall into place…from finding these sparkly chrome frames, and prints at 25 cents (total…not each!), to finding the perfect accessories and that gorgeous Kichler light fixture.
I use pop-up laundry baskets for dirty clothes, and smaller ones to carry my clean clothes. They are brought out on laundry day and we all bring our hamper/baskets from our various rooms and sort them into these pop-up baskets
I store my clean folded rags under the utility sink in this beautiful white basket I embellished with gold spray paint. Chrome may be the main finish in here, but my new favorite thing is to bring in hints of gold or copper in to each space!
A drop of Fray Check will keep buttons in place much longer. Just apply and let dry and no more buttons in the dryer.
I have just discovered your blog and may I say, I LOVE it..I am not sure where I have been living but I am so happy to have found you and I am so excited to read all your past posts…I LOVE your DIY posts and I think your blog is just beautiful!
Aw thank you! You have made my day…I truly appreciate the kind words. Oh and welcome! 🙂
Where did you get your laundry room rugs? Love them! And the whole room!
Thank you! I got it from Home Goods…they have a lovely set of rugs for great prices! 😉
Would love to know where your mom found the folding hook for drying those items unable to go into the dryer. Thanks for sharing.
Lucky me, she found it up at a thrift store! However I did also find it here on amazon for you (affiliate link): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005W9V5VM?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B005W9V5VM&tag=hommadbycar-20
Thanks for reading!
Oh my goodness, the paintbrush hooks! You are brilliant!
Emily, Our house now a home
This turned out great, I love the paint color. There are a lot of little elements that make the space work so well. Maximizing all of it! I am working on my laundry room too, and cannot wait to get done!
Came by via Tip Junkie. I canNOT believe that is 9×6! It looks bigger & what great organization. We’ll be moving in a couple of months & building in a few years so this is being saved for the great ideas.
Wow what a transformation! Love your wall color. May I ask what color it is?
Thank you! Unfortunately I do not know what the color is. I usually find my paint in the discount or “oops” section of the hardware store. This was a custom mix that some customer didn’t want and the store marked half price. One man’s trash… 😉
I know you said you do not know the name of the color, but is it more of a navy or a gray? In looks like each color in different pictures. We are building a house and our laundry room will be the same size as this one. I like the idea of a darker color on the wall and wondered if you are happy with the color, for as you say, helping your clothes to look bright and not dingy. Our laundry room will come with one long room length wire shelf so I am hoping to pick up some inexpensive cabinets from a local selling site or from The Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I really love the tall cabinet idea too.
It is more of a deep navy. Although, yes it looks very different depending on how the light is filling the room! Sounds like you have an amazing plan! Best of luck o your laundry room!! Sorry I don’t have the color for you. 😉
I love the paint color also! That’s what drew me into reading the post. Beautiful laundry room makeover!
What did you do with the kitty litter?
Sent it away with the previous owners. 😀 I don’t have a cat, that particular before picture was taken while the previous owners lived here. 😉
Do you make your own laundry stain remover?If so, will you share your secrets? I’ve never found anything as good as putting a few drops of liquid laundry detergent on the stain and just letting it sit until I have enough laundry to run the washing machine(which is usually the next day-
I have 5 kids( 3 at home, 2 at college), and do laundry just about every day.
I’m afraid I don’t. I call this era of my life (in stain remover) “trial and error”. 🙂
Your laundry room turned out fantastic, functional and lovely! Two key components!
What a beautiful makeover! I need to get one of those little hanging doodads. 🙂
Amazing job. You are so resourceful and an inspiration. I cant wait to see what you do next.
