Laundry Room Makeover: The Before…

Sometimes you need to see how messy a space has become in order to really
be able to appreciate how much you love your before and after.

I have pondered this just-before-you-leave-the-house-and-walk-thru-the
garage-drop-zone so many times…
I usually just shut the light off, close the door and go make something pretty.
 But now this is the next project on the list, and while I have a few loose
ends on the front porch, I am excited to begin working on my laundry
room makeover as soon as possible.

So, I am going to be sharing with you over the next few weeks some
easy DIY projects for my new laundry space, as well as the progress.
And I hope I can get it done quickly, because the reveal is the best part!

Here is what I have come up with so far for colors, fabrics, bins,
and inspiration, what do you think?

A little pretty, a little rustic, throw in some clean, modern industrial.
And I cannot wait to roll up my sleeves and start!
Do you have a space that you are working on right now, or need
a little inspiration to get going? I found a ton of ideas on one of my
favorite online addictions tools:
It is fun, and I am hooked on creating idea boards for different areas in
my home.  It’s like going shopping and creating a dream room, then figuring
out how I can pull it all together.
