Laundry Room Makeover - Before and After Pictures

Laundry Room Makeover

If you've been following along, you'll know that I've been updating my laundry room. It's time to share all the before and after pictures. The room got a fresh coat of paint and some new shelves to provide lots more sorting options. Of course, I added pretty things too. The overall effect has changed my perspective on laundry. Having the room done to fit my likes and tastes has made doing laundry less of a chore. I sometimes now even fold the clothes right out of the dryer. I know, amazing, right?

This is the corner of the room that has had the most dramatic change. Before I had a laundry cart in the corner, which I have now shortened to fit the space. Now I have two shelves above it providing more space for laundry baskets. Be sure to read my tutorial on building shelves.

I moved the ironing board and replaced it with cross stitched pictures. The ironing board got a new cover and now hangs on the door.

I also built a drying rack that folds flat against the wall when not in use. A new rug on the floor was the final touch. I feel my laundry room is complete.
