Laundry Room Makeover

So. It’s that time. There is one more room in
the LMB household that is done, for now.
This room was dark little closet that we rarely
went into, I mean let’s face it, It’s the laundry room.
You walk in, throw the clothes in, turn it on, & walk
out. I wanted a lovely little laundry room that
I could leave the door open & want to show it off
instead of hide it. This room is right off of our kitchen,
so it gets seen a lot!

 Before this room was more like a dark closet with no

It’s crazy what a different wall color & some accessories can
do to a lovely little space…


& after…..


 & after….


& after…


For extra organization we installed a shelf above the washer and dryer.
It was very simple. We simply installed two shelf brackets & cut
a board to the length we wanted & painted it black.

So there you have it! Our laundry room so far.
I’m really happy with it & I do not mind doing laundry in
here at all! I also keep the door open now ;)

  27. I’m loving your little shelf just over the machines and the way you decorated it, with that cute scale, which I love! New storage area is my motto, I just did mine as I was losing great space in the back wall of the machines too. Loving your redo, it’s great! I just dropped by from the Before and After Party!

  28. Love your blog! I became your newest follower! :) Erin

  31. Wow this looks awesome! I love how you were able to make it a cuter room without having to do a lot to it. This was the most clicked on link on my link party! I’m featuring this tomorrow!

  32. Liz Marie,

    What a cute little laundry room! I am planning a post for this week coming up on small laundry rooms, and I want to include yours! I need a laundry room makeover and am looking for inspiration!

  33. Kathy Smith says:

    Where did you put the dog/cat crate?

  34. Tell me about that turtle- where did you get it? Love your beautiful blog!

  35. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
