Laundry Room Reveal



My challenge was to do this little room under $50.  

My "design dilemmas" were: 

1.} High traffic area
2.} Needed room for laundry baskets
3.} Needed organization 
4.} Needed some color

Here's the very real "before" shot...



And here's the "after"!!!







I recovered a pink polka dot bin and made it into that canvas one on the right.  It holds all our mismatched socks.  The scarf is covering an outlet. :-)  And the handmade linen bag is made out of old Banana Republic pants and is hiding my Shout stain remover that I use oh-so-often.


My solution to the hampers. Wal Mart finds...not my favorite, but they fixed our doors-bumping-into-hampers-issue!


Love these hooks I screwed in...they also came from wally world for under $4.



Laundry sign tutorial found here.


Some texture. :-)


I'm a wannabe-gardener so I wanted the laundry room to have a mud room feel with gardening supplies.  I could've bought some more rusticy ones I liked better, but I just pulled some stuff from the garage to save money.  There's all sorts of treasures lurking in your garage, so go root through!!! 


Antique finds from a yard sale for only a few dollars.



My detergent has found a home! I made those labels using chalkboard paint on card stock and then just roughed it up a little with some white chalk from Hobby Lobby.  Easy peasy!

Breakdown of costs:

Hardware = 6.78
Paint and Brushes = $11
Laundry Baskets = $11
Detergent Canister = $3.60
Antiques = $6

Total = $31.18!!!


I have lots of recipes back-logging in my post files so get ready to get your cooking and baking game on next week!


Does this photo get your mouth watering???

Looks great Marybeth. I like doing laundry so much more after redoing ours. Also, I started a blog this week thanks to the encouragement of a friend. Kinda fun, isn't it?!

Magnifique! I bet this puts a huge smile on your face whenever you walk in there now. What a great way to encourage a spirit of joy in every day household duties.

Susanna, You have no idea! I have really been struggling lately with the children "destroying" everything I am able to get done in the early morning hours and naptime hours when they're asleep. It lifts my spirit to have pretty things to look at when I'm doing the mundane. :-)
