My pathetic little Shop the House Sunday!

 

I had intended to reveal my Trash Pickin Door Chalkboard Makeover this weekend.  The weekend started out with NO PLANS (woo hoo) and ended up filled with a hockey game, baseball practice, and kids sleepover!  *sigh
So, I did a little "sumpin" this morning, just so I wouldn't look like a COMPLETE slacker!  

The before...

 

The shelf in my tiny "hit your butt on the wall when you're unloading the dryer" laundry room.  No wonder I never want to do laundry!
The after...
  

I know, I know...it's nothing special, but it makes things more tolerable just to have all the supplies in baskets.  Now, when I get really snazzy, I'll paint this room, have cute little labels for all the baskets and have the laundry detergent in some sort of container, but it works for me today.  
Here's some inspiration laundry rooms in my idea files...

Fun and girlie! You know you're the only one in there anyway, so might as well make it YOUR space!

Love this idea for getting the piles of clothes OFF the floor.

All I can say is WOW!  I would live in here.

...or here!

These are the shelves I want to build for my laundry room, all the way to the ceiling.

If I had a laundry room that looked like one of those--there would never be any dirty laundry. But all I have is the back wall of the garage, wedged between the freezer and the water-heater. Sigh! In my next life maybe...

URGGGGGGH!
Great laundry room by the way. I'll be linking up to your TP Thursday party too.

Baskets are a winner! They just spruce up any space, don't they? Love the laundry room inspiration pics. I do dream of having one of those too *sigh*. Maybe one day! Happy Monday to you, ~Kristin

You can never go wrong with baskets!!!
My dream laundry room would have a folding station with a separate bin for each of us {6 of us}. My life would be so much better!
Have a great day!

Ahhh I ADORE baskets! Lovely!

Kathleen said...

LOVING the baskets! And I know - I had totally planned to link to your STHS but it just didn't happen. The allergy Gods have decided to rain their wrath down upon me and I haven't been up to doing much at all. Hopefully this coming week I'll feel better. :)

Oh my! That BHG photograph looks like a Stepford Wives Laundry Room. Too pretty to be real. However..it sure would be a dream to have one identical to it. Love the basket idea.

Blessings, Joy and Monday Sunshine, Terri

Well, this post has certainly inspired me to do something with my laundry room. It would be much more fun to do laundry in a fun place. Thanks for the great inspiration! =)

We have shelves in our laundry room and I keep many things in baskets too. We decided this weekend that we want to take out the shelves and put in cabinets. I'm tired of the dust that gets on things from the dryer lint, etc. One more project for the list!

Love the Decor! said...

You and I must have the same laundry room :)
Love some of those pics but can't happen in my house
there just isn't room. Oh well At least I have a laundry room right?! :)

What lovely laundry rooms. I keep telling myself that I am going to make my laundry room beautiful, but I never seem to get around to it.
Your post has inspired me to try again.

Dreamy laundry rooms!! Oh, what has my life become when I start saying things like "dreamy laundry rooms!". Wow. :D

Wendy said...

I love the shelves all the way to the ceiling! It is a never ending battle in our laundry room between messy and clean! Love your inspiration pics!

What a fitting post for me! I am starting on my laundry room tomorrow. I am going to paint, add a shelf and some pretties. I will post when I am done.

Hey there! I'm working with a group that's just launched a new website (http://www.ourmommyhood.com) that catalogues all the cool blot hops around. I added yours to our list, and just wanted to let you know. Please tell me if you'd rather we took it down... or, if you'd like us to promote any other events (giveaways, fundraisers) that you have coming up on your blog!
