After many months and several starts and stops, my laundry room is finally ready to share with you.  Come on in – ya know, because who doesn’t like to hang out in a laundry room – right? LOL

Before we go any further, let me show you what we started out with.  This is what the room looked like the day that we looked at the house.  Sure the room was a hot mess, but it was huge for a laundry room.  I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.

Here’s how it looked like the last time that I shared it with you.  We stayed stuck at this stage for a while.  We had a little trouble getting the cabinets and countertop for the sink just right and with so many other projects to distract us, it just sat this way.  At this point we had removed wallpaper, replaced the flooring, moved plumbing around and had mounted some of the cabinets that came out of the original kitchen.  We placed the former owner’s fridge in here too.  It is a very nice one and sure does come in handy, especially around the holidays.

 And here she is today!  Come on in and look around.  So much brighter and more organized that the old layout.  I didn’t use my wide angle lens for the after shots, so we’ll have to look around in snippets.

Remodeled Laundry Room Tour - Lots of diy ideas!

 

The laundry room has quite a few diy projects.  One of them is a rustic’ish shelf I made to conceal the roughly 12″ gap behind the machines that was created by the location of the dryer vent in the wall.  Another project is the solution that I came up with to conceal the faucet connections in the wall.  Those things are always such an eyesore.  See that white box at the end of the washer?  That’s it – read about what I did HERE.

The small basket on the shelf is perfect for holding my dryer sheets and keeps me from having to stand on my toes to reach across the dryer and up into the cabinet to get them. All of my detergents and other cleaning supplies are located in these cabinets, but for some reason it isn’t as much of a struggle for me to get to those items.

The laundry room sink is located opposite from the washer and dryer.  In case you’re wondering, the gray round thing to the left of the cabinets is a retractable clothesline.  I run it across the room and attach it to a sturdy hook in the wall whenever I need to use it. Works great for drying a lot of clothes at one time.

This is where I give my dogs a bath so their shampoos and brushes are in the fabric bin located beside the sink.  A glass canister tucked into the bin keeps all of their squeaky toys within easy reach for me.  My dogs are kind of like kids in that they get tired of playing with the same toys all of the time, so I frequently switch them out.

You might be wondering what that thing is hanging on the wall to the right of the sink.  It’s the oversize bulletin board that I originally made for my old kitchen to hide the ugly exposed side of my refrigerator.  Click HERE to see how I made it.  It served me well in our former home, but I spiffed it up a little and really love it in my laundry room.

All I did was to remove the bulletin board from the frame and staple twine, running from side to side, on the back and then reinsert the bulletin board back into the frame.  Cute clothespins were added to hold special cards and cute pictures.

 And lastly, my ironing board hangs on the wall directly opposite from the sink.  I made an easy-peasy holder for it and replaced the old cover with a pretty black and white one.  There are so many cute covers out there, why not update your old one!

The holder is just a piece of stained wood that has had two hooks added to the front.  It you make one of these for yourself, make sure the opening on the hooks that you use will accommodate the legs of your ironing board.
