Laundry Room Update

Hello all! I can't believe this is my second post of the day - I have never done that before.  I have been collecting a few things to update my laundry room.  It was functional, but not very pretty.  Here's a before:

Wow, this looks even worse in the picture.  But, truly nothing really cheerful, and a little bit messy.

Better already! I hung a couple of flower pictures and placed all the clothes hangers at the end over the dryer.

I then added a basket with this cute sign wired to the front - "Clean Single Looking for a Mate".  Makes me smile just looking at it.  Hopefully this will make the lost sock want to be back with its mate! lol I also added a small glass jar for all the loose change I collect - if they leave it in their pockets it's mine!!

On this side of the shelf I added another laundry sign and placed all my extra detergents, softener,etc, in the basket.  I always have so much detergent - every time it is on sale I buy it whether needed or not!

On the other end of the shelf is a glass jar full of clothes pins, the Fleur de lis and another basket to hide extra supplies.

While cleaning out the baskets on the shelf I found this two striped rugs, thought they would work for in front of the washer/dryer. I am going to sew them together tonight.

The last thing I did was change the cover of the ironing board.  This was the Misters from before we where married. It had burns on it and all kinds of Navy iron ons. He was not happy I changed it - said there was a lot of memories on that cover. Maybe I should go get it out the trash? Thanks for stopping by to see the updated laundry room. I really love to read all your comments.

Your laundry room looks very nice. Isn't it funny how we want to fix up a room where all we ever do is work in it? I think I spend way too much time in my laundry room. Making it look nice makes the time pass a little more quickly.

It is interesting I read your post about your laundry room. It has motivated me to get mine cleaned, like I just cleaned my kitchen! Tomorrow! (I gotta do it while I am on summer break!) I imagine you will enjoy all the nice new items while you work. :)

Your room looks great. I think we should definitely fix up a place we spend so much time to be fun! I have a jar like yours full of laundry money. Someday I need to cash it in. :)

I envy you a laundry room. Mine is a corner of the garage and there isn't a lot I can do to "cute" it up.
