Our house does not have a laundry room, per se, but we do have a small laundry closet in the kitchen that is just big enough to hold a stacked washer and dryer. Since moving in, I have tried to be creative in my use of the space. My brother helped me install wire shelves inside the left wall of the closet. Last weekend I made a few more changes I want to share!
The laundry area had heavy wooden bifold doors concealing it. We removed them and hung a springrod and a white Ikea Vivan curtain instead. (Yes, Mom, I hemmed it myself!) I tied it back with a sage green ribbon, but we can always pull it shut if need be.
I added a little black and white rug ($1 at Dollar Tree!) to help separate the space from the rest of the room (though the black and white still coordinates with the kitchen).
I added vinyl (peel-off) letters to my dryer ($1 at Dollar Tree) that say “Live well, Laugh often, Love much.”
By removing the bifold doors, I now can slide my drying rack into the closet when it’s folded up and I am not using it to dry cloth diapers.
Here’s the overall new look! With diapers:
Ta-da! A laundry “room” makeover for $8.50!
