Last weekend I spent a good chunk of my time revamping our laundry room. Ok, it’s not really a room, it’s more like a large, walk-in closet, but regardless, it serves its purpose well. Here is a before shot of the space...pretty dull and boring.
I figured since we tend to spend a lot of my time in this room on the weekends (that’s when we do laundry), we might as well make it a space we enjoy being in – makes the chore a little less daunting.
One of my favorite things about the room is that it has a window, and I wanted to use that window to make it bright and cheery. To help with that, I chose yellow as the accent color.
I found a small, yellow rug for the floor to help break up the space a bit.
I then added a cute yellow sunflower pot to bring in more yellow cheer.
Next, I used wicker baskets to give the space a more organized feel by hiding a lot of our laundry/cleaning accessories.
And as if that wasn't enough, I scored this awesome glass container at Hobby Lobby to hold our laundry detergent.
Lastly, I used these chalkboard labels and started labeling everything, which led to the end result of this happy little laundry room. Isn’t she pretty?
Here’s the price breakdown:
Yellow rug (Kohls): $15 (on sale)
Wicker Baskets (Hobby Lobby): $35 (on sale)
Glass Container (Hobby Lobby) $7 (on sale)
Flower pot (DIY): $10
Total: $67 - not bad, right?!
