Laundry Room Makeover


Other than a few accessories and a rug (which I can't seem to find...YET :)

The laundry room is DONE!!!  I honestly can't believe I am dealing with the same square footage as I did before.  I feel like I have added tons of space to the room without even taking out a wall.

Here are a few before pictures...





Here is what it looks like TODAY!





Here is my 7 foot custom magnetic board!! LOVE! :)


Sorry about the pictures, they’re not great I know. 
It's such a small space with no natural light, so it was a bit of a challenge. 

I had a long list of MUSTS for the space, and I do believe I accomplished everything on my list. 

Here are just a few things on my list

~A place to hold dirty clothes waiting to be washed
~ A designated spot for kids socks. 
I figure having a drawer in the laundry area would be a perfect spot to find socks...it's on your way out the door:)

~Room for my mop, broom, vacuum, iron and the BIG one...The ironing board!
~ I wanted a place I could store seasonal dishes
~ I needed a place to store random things like the shoe shine basket, and extra rags, sewing kit etc
~ A hanging rod for wet clothes
~I also needed a reference place that I could put all my kids papers and reminders of upcoming activities
and the yearly calendar. 
~ A place that I could store my laundry soap, fabric softener, bleach etc... that was conveniently close to the washer.

I NOW have MORE than enough storage, whereas before, I really didn't have any. I even have a sock drawer for my boys . . . we were always chasing around for socks to get them on the bus on time. I can't even start to tell you how great this new feature is :)

And Here is my FAVORITE part of the entire room...

I now have a" REAL" space for all my brooms, mops and ironing board! 

HAPPY DAY!!!!!

Wow I love it! I just asked my hubs lst night if our washer and dryer is stackable since we've always had it side by side. Would love to have a laundry room as fab as yours when the house is done this summer!!

Love the new magnet board! Also, so nice to have so many drawers! We are painting our laundry room and rehanging the ceiling since we had to tear the other one out to fix a leak, but that is all. Wanna trade? :)
