Laundry Room Mini Makeover- What a Difference Accessories Make

If there is one room in my house that I could make larger, it would be my laundry room. It is the first room everyone sees when they come home since there is a door to the garage. We painted it last Spring after living with the builder white for 9 years.
One thing that it does have is a laundry sink which comes in very handy when doing projects. The paint is probably the only color that I liked when it went on the wall. No custom mix on this one. My husband was relieved! 

I found the key rack at an online website that sold gifts for executives. Go figure!

My husband made the coat rack several years ago ... And you've already seen the mirror in another post.

The laundry room still needed a little decoration, so I used some things I already had and put them on top of the cabinets.
I bought the 3 baskets originally for my daughter's bedroom makeover, but there was too much of this pattern, so I was going to take them back to Homegoods, where I bought them. I didn't return them for several weeks because they were so cute & I wanted to use them somewhere. Ahhhhh, the Laundry Room!
I keep rags neatly folded in one and I use one for stray socks. Not sure what the third basket will hold, but I'm sure I will think of something to put in it!

Here is a close up of those 3 cute baskets!

Stay tuned for part 2 of the Laundry Room mini-redo ... Some time in April we are going to tile the floor.

  3. Your laundry room and mine look like they are about the same size. I love your wall color and accessories. I am afraid mine is junky and I need to repaint it again. I put the yellow in my dining room in there and it is awful. Too dark since there are no windows. Oh well, we learn from our mistakes and I will paint it yet again.

  4. That is one good lookin' laundry room!! Great job :) I really like your wall color and all the cute accessories!

  5. Blogging Friend, I think the baskets are perfect in your laundry room. I use many baskets in my laundry area too. Your laundry room is getting cozier all the time. Joan

  8. It's amazing what a difference accessories make. I love black, white & green together and I love this room of yours. Nice work!

  9. Pam, the baskets are such a great idea! I was going to hang curtains to fill that area, and cover some ugly pipe-age! I like this so much better. My laundry room is stark! This will be a great beginning.
