Laundry Room Makeover

How many of you hate going into your laundry room and it’s not just because of the dirty clothes? Have you considered how a laundry room makeover just may create a space you don’t hate being in? Check out how simple decor changes gave this laundry room just the lift it needed.

Laundry Room Makeover / Affordable, Simple decor changes for big impact

 

Hey there friends! I’m thrilled you’re here. I’m joining a group of talented ladies this week for a new series, called Seasonal Simplicity home tours. We are planning 4 tours this year, one for each season. How fun is that? Thanks to April, from House by Hoff, and Krista, from The Happy Housie, for hosting and inviting me to join. If you are coming over from Sincerely, Sara D. welcome to my home!

Today is the first installment of our “Seasonal Simplicity” home tour series. The goal of the tour is to focus on simple ideas to incorporate seasonal touches to our homes, and to share them with you!

For me, I’m not one to change up too much decor for each season. I tend to do more practical decorating instead that will carry throughout the year. For spring, I think cleaning. I decided for this spring tour a laundry room makeover was in order. Since the goal of this tour is simplicity I made sure the makeover would be doable for anyone!

Our home was built with one of those laundry rooms that is incorporated into the entry from the garage. The worst idea ever unless you make is big enough to be considered a mud room. Mine is not. I needed to keep in mind that this room must be functional for what we use it for, laundry, shoes, drop zone, etc., but I also need it to look more like an entryway.

As much as I love to paint, I hadn’t painted this room in almost 10 years! Yikes.

Here is what I was dealing with, the before. Very cluttered, dark and boring.

In order to keep this very affordable I only purchased a few items. The rug is from HomeGoods, and the clock and lamp are from Walmart. The total spent for those 3 items was $75.oo. Everything else I already owned.

The gallon of paint was left over from my bedroom. The color is mindful gray by Sherwin Williams. Paint alone can totally change a room. See my bathroom refresh for another great example!

I used my DIY Farmhouse style wreath that I made a few months ago.

As with true spring cleaning fashion and my crazy love for decluttering, I cleared off the shelves and brought baskets from the attic. Now it looks so much neater.

I had extra wood in the garage to create the key holder and the table top for the shoe storage. I’ll share tutorials for those in the next few days. Be sure to sign up for my emails below so you don’t miss anything.

**Update: Our DIY key hanger has been a life saver. OK, maybe that seems dramatic BUT now we always know where our keys are and there is plenty of room for them all.

In the past I tried a bench in here but it ended up being a landing zone for more stuff. I decided the bench seat/ foot stool would work better. This is a vintage piece I found and added new fabric too. We needed a place to put on shoes and my hope is this will work better. So far, so good. Quick cell phone photo of my daughter as she was heading out for track practice.
