Next, look to your left to see my pride and joy-the laundry dresser (you all need one of these-it will change your life)
Now, look above the washer and dryer to notice the cute and functional stuff on my shelves.I rolled up the rags and old towels/rags and stuck them in a basket with a bow to dress them up. There is also an antique iron and an old window (this is just hanging out here until I can borrow a ladder and some courage to hang it above my front door). There are also several cute storage boxes of assorted sizes all over the room that I made (see how here). I found this red burlap and thought it would be great to make storage boxes out of. I was wrong-it stretched and ripped and although the end result is fine, I don't recommend it. There's also a rod that I can use to hang up stuff (although I'm lazy and put EVERYTHING in the dryer).
This shelf has an antique washboard and iron, more storage and "my Stache" jar for loose change. I hung my trio of Laundry Symbol Art above.
Finally look down and please admire the floors. They look like ceramic tile (even in person and even if you get down on your hands and needs to inspect them), but they are peel-&stick vinyl tiles that you can grout to look like real tiles. I know what you're thinking-peel and stick=super tacky. That's what I thought, but they are AMAZING. When we moved in, we budgeted $1500 to replace nasty linoleum. All by myself, I did 2 bathrooms and the laundry room for a little over $100 and it looks just like tile. No tile saws required-I used a box-cutter. Check out the site here for more info.
Thanks for stopping by, if you're interested in some free clothes-please check out this weeks give-a-way and linky party.

Love the laundry room. I wish I had one as cute as that! (Or even one at all; mine are just in the basement in a creepy room). Self-adhesive tile is awesome. I redid our kitchen and bathroom floor using it a few years ago and wrote a little tutorial here: http://www.nokoikonomia.com/2009/08/how-to-install-and-grout-self-adhesive.htmlReplyDelete
Wow - this is super cute!! I love the laundry basket idea! Your shelves are cute and functional!ReplyDelete

Great looking laundry room! Would love for you to stop by The Blackberry Vine and share at the Tuesday To Do Party!ReplyDelete
I might would actually enjoy doing laundry in this laundry room! I love the laundry dresser...off to check out the link now! Oh yeah...that peel and stick floor looks great - I'm gonna check that out for my laundry/bathroom!ReplyDelete
That laundry dresser is just too cool. Love how it goes vertical instead of horizontal. Horizontal is important in my home. I wouldn't mind walking in this laundry room, but I wouldn't have to, caused the hubs does all the laundry in this house. Sorry don't hate me cause my hubs likes to do laundry. It really is a cute room. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday's Best Party!ReplyDelete
Awesome.. you have created the perfect space.. now if only the laudry would wash, dry, fold and put itself away! lol.. Really though it looks amazing! Thanks so much for sharing wiht the Pink Hippo party!ReplyDelete
Where did you get the laundry basket shelf or did you make it?ReplyDelete
I did make it: http://trophyw.blogspot.com/2012/01/laundry-bring-it-on.html and it has made laundry so much easier.Delete
I plan to show this to my husband and guilt him into making a basket dresser for me. I have four kids ages 6 and under, it makes for a lot of laundry. I am so jealous of you!ReplyDelete
I hope he does! I still love mine.Delete
Amazing ideas. I was looking for my laundry remodeling. Thanks for giving me beautiful ideas.ReplyDelete
