Laundry Room Makeover


This is my FIRST post ever, so bear with me...
My laundry room was so ugly! Every time I went to do laundry, I hated to see all the "stuff" on the shelves out in the open..Toilet paper, paper towels, hangers..etc..etc
These are the BEFORE pics


I found cabinets on Craigs List ($120 for ALL THESE!!)

My husband got started hanging the cabinets, and these are the AFTER pics :)

I insisted on the shelf behind the washer / dryer because things were ALWAYS falling behind there.


I got the knobs on clearance at Home Depot and the baskets on Clearance at Home Goods (they are actually for pets..the liner has paws on it, so I covered it with a pin! Even the dirty clothes baskets look PRETTY!

OH, and after we used three of the cabinets, I sold the rest for $150!! So, I actually MADE MONEY on this project! LOL

  1. Lori, this is an amazing makeover! Plus, you actually made money doing it...that never happens. :) Awesome transformation! Love those new laundry baskets, too. I know this room makes you smile each time you look in...just beautiful!

    1. Susan,
      Thanks for your kind comments. You are truly an inspiration to me.

  2. Hi Lori, What a nice job you did! I'm always on the lookout for laundry room ideas, and I LOVE your shelf behind the appliances. Think I'll borrow that for my room! Martha from Michigan

    1. Martha,
      The shelf was a MUST have! We were constantly knocking things behind the washer!
