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!
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!
This 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!
