Laundry Room Update

[Note: This update happened several months ago. I am just now getting around to posting about it.]

While we're talking home improvements, allow me to introduce you to my golden laundry room. 

(And sorry for this terrible 'BEFORE' picture; I had already removed the white storage rack that went across the wall; i.e. holes and sheet rock damage galore.)

Although the storage shelf was decent, we decided that cabinets would be a better option for the back wall; I had TONS of stuff piled high on that shelf - everything from coolers to laundry products to craft bins to power tools (yes, yall know I gotta have my power tools handy.) It looked like a storage unit.  Bleh. So once the budget allowed, Chad so generously let me call in the cabinet man. We have an awesome cabinet guy here in Birmingham that can build anything. Literally, anything. He's known for his built-ins and can pretty much make your home look like something out of Pottery Barn for wayyyy less than you'd pay your average guy. If you are local and would like his information, let me know!


So here it is with the cabinet framework up; he brought the doors the next day. (He is not a painter so he does not do the painting; we painted them ourselves, which involved caulking, patching nail holes, priming, sanding and painting; well, to be honest, they are only primed. I left them that way because hey, who cares? Nobody sees this room but me and the primer looks great.)


And since I had the paint left over from the master bathroom, I decided to use it on this room too. I think the cool tones really look great in laundry rooms. Fresh and clean. (Paint color is Behr's Zen.)
And here's the after:


I love this room now (well, as much as you can love a laundry room.)
I bought the big glass canister for my detergent at Target and the glass bottle for the white vinegar (which I use in place of fabric softener) at Christmas Tree Shops.
I made the labels on PicMonkey... and ummm I'm just remembering that I was going to email them to a bunch of you... AGH! I'm sorry. They are on my downstairs computer and so I never thought about it again. If you want these labels, please leave me your e-mail address here and I will also go back to my Instagram account and see who all wanted them. Sorry about that. If you'd like a copy of these labels, just shoot me an email at haleymorgan82@yahoo.com.


Tin pails from Target; the chalkboard one too. These hold clothespins, safety pins, and a bar of soap, which I use to rub on stains before washing (sometimes!)


And because I did need a place to hang clothes to dry, we opted for this smaller $12 shelf at Target. There are a few housekeeping items (mail, crayons, stickers, etc) on top that I can pull down for the kids and to pay bills and such. Keeps it off my kitchen counter! This rack is plenty big for everything that needs to hang; usually I try to put it up after it dries so it doesn't pile up on the rack.


And getting the cabinets gave me ample space for things that were cluttering my kitchen cabinets, pantry, and coat closet - vases, outdoor items like bird seed and hummingbird nectar, random kitchen tools that I don't use on a regular basis (like a cookie press and such), laundry items that I wanted to keep out of sight, cookbooks, and all those coolers and power tools. :)



I was even able to use the top for all of my entertaining stuff like pitchers, drink tubs, and cupcake stands.


Thanks for putting up with all the home improvement posts lately. I will get back to the kiddos and their everyday shenanigans very soon! Can't believe it is almost MAY. Hang in there, my teacher friends! Summer is almost here!

Here's another BEFORE and AFTER... this time with a little help from PicMonkey...





 [And please know that this room is NEVER, I repeat, NEVER this clean. I moved about 872 articles of dirty clothing from the FLOOR before I snapped the pic. Thankyouverymuch and good night.]
