With just a little bit of paint and DIY creativity I was able to transform my laundry room in one afternoon. Check out the changes I made and grab a free laundry room printable.

I love the way my laundry room makeover turned out! This was a really easy, low budget, quick turn around project that took me about half a day to complete. I purchased a few key pieces to bring in the organization I needed and also a little accent color to the room. Speaking of color- the walls went from boring white to a bright yellow. (Forsythia Blossom by Olympic) If you follow me on Instagram, you noticed that I also “accidentally” painted my kitchen this color as well. I love that just adding paint to the walls made it seem so much brighter and more spacious.
I used leftover fabric from our dining room chairs makeover to make these new sew curtains. I found the vinyl “Wash Dry Fold Repeat” stickers on clearance for $9.59 (reg $31.99). I really lucked out on that find! We already had the shelf in another room but I moved it in here and cut it down slightly to fit in the space. This might be my favorite feature of the room. I love that it hides the huge, empty space between the wall and the washer/dryer. It almost looks custom built-in, like it should have been there all along.
Speaking of washer and dryer, they are on the short list to replace ASAP. Our dryer has started taking forever to dry and usually requires 2-3 cycles before things are finished. Our washer is at least 10-12 years old. I’ve been shopping a few LG Front-Loading sets from Best Buy.
I’ve been trying to decide between another top load machine or a front loader. Front loaders will typically use less water and also consume less electricity, the washer also spins faster to help keep clothes drier to reduce overall drying time. Not only are front load washing machines convenient, but the cleaning performance is better than top load. I like this LG 12-Cycle Front-Loading Washer (SKU: 5149407) in white so far, but I also really like the graphite steel color options Best Buy has as well.
I will take a trip to the store before I decide on anything though to get a feel for them in person and ask questions. Best Buy Blue Shirts are experts in the benefits surrounding LG Front Load laundry. That way I can also see what sales are currently going on; like the “Purchase an LG Front Load Washer and SideKick save an additional $150” current offer. SideKick would be an awesome feature because it provides additional capacity to wash 2 loads at once.
I found that wire basket on clearance for $9.99 (reg $24.99). The glass jars were in my kitchen at our old house, but have found a new home in the laundry room. They are actually a really pretty shade of dark turquoise (not green like in the picture). It’s not very noticeable in the before and after pictures, but I wrapped the wooden rod with jute cord.
I bought these white frames regularly $19.99ea, on sale 40% off. I used a piece of gray chevron scrapbook paper and cut it to size in one frame. I placed the “Lost Sock” scrapbook stickers on the outside of the frame; I think it looks more noticeable this way. I found the giant yellow clothes pin at the dollar store and used hot glue to adhere it to the frame. I also created the laundry room printable:
I am so happy with the way this space turned out! I can’t say that I don’t mind doing laundry now… but I do enjoy the room more when I’m in there. 🙂
What is on your washer / dryer must have list? Do you currently have a front load washing machine?
