Now that my laundry room is done, I have had a lot of fun finding some fun pieces and putting all the finishing touches together for the room. I knew I needed a folding table for that room and we toyed around with a lot of different possibilities. We thought about putting lower cabinets in and making a table on top of them, or making a table out of wood and glass. So we were out shopping at Fred Meyer one day, and came across a stool height table/counter for less money than we could make one. It had the glass top that I wanted to make the room feel large, and room underneath for laundry baskets.
It really works perfectly in there and I love the pop of black that ties into the black on the floor. I found these fun laundry baskets at Walmart of all places. They are perfect for storing all our clothes in.
I also had this ironing board cabinet already in the laundry room downstairs. It was oak, and with a little gray paint and a crystal knob of course, I gave it new life.
I put a cabinet next to my dryer. We needed a top and decided that instead of buying a counter top, we would make one out of wood. We took wood pieces, glued them together and painted them gray. I love the way it turned out. I bought containers and cut out some labels with my vinyl cutter. Just in case I need to know what I have in them. 🙂
Speaking of vinyl, I saw this quote on pinterest and it totally made me laugh. I knew I had to cut it out and put it in my laundry room. So so true at our house!
I love my new room…it makes me smile every time I go in it. If you know me, you know that I usually don’t have a smile on my face while doing laundry. If you have to do that chore, it might as well be in a space you like right!
