DIY Laundry Room Makeover

So this is not really a DIY laundry room makeover, but a DIY laundry closet makeover.  You know I love to tackle a new organization project!

DIY Laundry Room Makeover by The Sweet Spot Blog #diy #organization #homedecor

I started by painting the closet walls a putty brown, to give it more depth.  Then I added a stainless-steel top over the washer and dryer to make folding clothes a breeze.  Next I installed three Elfa ventilated shelves to organize all of my laundry and cleaning supplies.  I even added a 3 1/2 foot hanging bar for drying undergarments.  Finally, I hung wall organizers on each side of the closet for short- (on the left) and tall- (on the right) cleaning implements.  For extra credit, I added a battery organizer!

DIY Laundry Room Makeover by The Sweet Spot Blog #diy #organization #homedecorThis DIY laundry room makeover was surprisingly inexpensive.  The stainless-steel folding table is a simple desk-top from Ikea.  The Elfa ventilated shelves were the most expensive from The Container Store, but the side, wall  and battery organizers were cheap finds at Lowes.  Now I do a little ‘happy dance’ each time I open the doors!

    I keep all my laundry things on shelves too. It is a nice way to keep everything out of the way. Your laundry closet looks great!

    For using the ikea table top as a folding table did you have to mount it to anything? I have a table that I’d gladly disassemble to use the top in my laundry room. Wonder how you anchored it, if at all. I know our washer tends to get a bit wild sometimes with larger loads and bucks around. I know this is an old post, but hoping to get a reply! Thanks!

      Hi Emily! I did not mount my table top–just placed it on top of the washer and dryer–but you can mount yours with simple ‘L’ brackets from Home Depot. I would use at least 7 brackets (2 on the left end, 2 on the right end, and 3 on the back side), but you might need to add more depending on how heavy your table top is. Mount it about 2 inches above your washer and dryer to allow your washer to move freely. You probably just need to attach the brackets to the wall, then place your table top on the brackets without screwing them in. This will make it easier to access behind the washer/dryer. I would love it if you would email us a photo of your finished product!

    My wife and i were so excited when Michael could carry out his preliminary research while using the precious recommendations he was given while using the web page. It’s not at all simplistic to just continually be giving away key points which often a number of people have been making money from. And we take into account we have got you to appreciate for that. The type of illustrations you have made, the straightforward web site menu, the friendships you help promote – it’s everything incredible, and it’s really leading our son in addition to our family reason why this concept is enjoyable, and that is extraordinarily serious. Thank you for everything!

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
