When we bought the house, the laundry room was right off the kitchen. We really wanted to open up and expand the kitchen so a relocate was in order. The best tip I can give you if you are remodeling is look to see where you can give up space. For us it was in a huge bedroom in the back of the house. This old ranch house had been through one remodel in the 7o’s and this room was the original master bedroom prior to that project. It was HUGE.
With a little tweaking we were able to carve out a nice size laundry space and still have a large bedroom for my youngest son.
There was still a need for easy access to all the paint and things I use regularly. I found these vintage soda crates and put them to work.
It is so nice to be organized in at least one room of my house! The baskets were a find from Lowe’s.
These big storage tubs are actually planters I got at a garage sale. I had planned on painting them, but I filled them up too fast! I love having things in the open, so I don’t forget the goodies I collect. It helps me know what I have on hand for projects. Behind it is a gigantic bulletin board full of all the mommy love my kids give.
You know the space for drawings and poems.
Random scraps and treasures.
Oh – and my diploma. Doesn’t everyone keep theirs in the laundry room?
The details are what make my heart pitter patter…
You can see the rest of my house here. Hope you enjoyed my little space.
