A couple {ok maybe a few} weeks ago, I showed you this BEFORE picture of my Laundry Room.

I told you how this space was really small, dark, and drab and how I planned to make some improvements to lighten it up, create a little more space, and give it some color and style. I posted my inspiration pictures HERE. You can also see more of my inspiration pictures for this space and all of the spaces in my home by visiting me on Pinterest.

Here is an up close of what our cabinets looked like BEFORE

Did you happen to notice the big door in the way?? That was one of the main problems in this space. Both the Hubbs and I couldn’t imagine bringing in a car seat through the garage, through this tiny space and trying not to hit the washer, dryer, and door.  It was too much!

After some creative design planning, searching magazines and online for some inspiration, and then putting everything together, this is what we came up with.  Did I mention that this entire makeover only costs us $100? Well, yes, that’s right! Only $100 and we have a COMPLETELY NEW SPACE!



Have I ever mentioned that my Hubby was in the United States Marine Corps? Well, he was and this was our wedding day/reception. He wore his dress blues and looked oh so handsome J
Here is the ironing board holder we made. You have probably seen these showing up all over blog land after Shelly from {The House of Smith’s} designed one about a year or so ago. We absolutely love ours and thank her for the inspiration! Our ironing board used to sit in another room and we had to drag it out every time we wanted to use it. Now, it is where it should be, looks pretty, and doesn’t take up any floor space.

Ok, let’s take another look at this space BEFORE and AFTER

So, what do you think?


We are thrilled with the results and couldn’t be happier that this space looks COMPLETELY different, like another house even, and we did everything for only $100!!!

    Hi Jennifer,

    I’m hopping on over from Coastal Charm, and I’m so glad I did! Love your laundry room makeover – this is something similar to what my hubby had in mind for our laundry room makeover, so this is great to see what the “finished look”, looks like! :) We just moved into a fixer and have the TINIEST of budgets when it comes to redoing our home to make it functional (and more aesthetic to the eye), so I love how your blog has different projects listed (and low cost too) – I am your newest follower! :) Looking forward to your posts!

    That looks so great! I really love the horizontal boards on the walls — did you add those yourself or were they already there? I might need to bump up my laundry room redo on my very long list of to do’s.

  7. says

    I saw this on Remodelholic and had to stop over and tell you how awesome your laundry room looks! Taking the door off the center cabinet and painting them white was a great idea. I love the detail on the walls too! Great job.

  8. says

    HUGE difference! Love your color choice, the grouping and baskets on the shelves, and especially the ironing board rack. I think I may skip on over to her blog and snag the directions for myself. PS, gotta love those dress blues! My hubby is currently active duty and I swear I count the days til the Birthday Ball so I can see him in those babies!

    Sorry if you’ve answered any of these questions already, but did you replace your light fixture? I too have a windowless laundry room, and hate our dingy little light. Looking for a fixture/style that will add more, brighter light! Also, what paint brand/color did you use? It’s lovely!

    Love it! Love it! Very inspirational. Love the signs too! Is there a tutorial for those? What color paint did you use to paint the laundry room. I love the contrast between the white and pastel color.

    Amazing room! I have been looking for this color blue. I just went and picked up a sample of Crystal Blue and it turned out pretty dark. Did you lighten it up at all, and by how much? Thanks!!!!

    • says

      Thanks, Sierra!
      The color is Crystal Blue by Valspar, but we had it color matched in BEHR Ultra paint from Home Depot. It’s been awhile since we purchased this color….it may have changed? Hope this helps.

    How did you transform the center cabinet into just shelves? Was it originally attached to the left cabinet as a “double cabinet?” I have this exact problem in my laundry room!
