FRIENDS!!! It’s is finally time for my LAUNDRY ROOM REVEAL!
This space has been so fun to create because we started from scratch. Last fall, we added this room to the back of our house, and I designed it to fit our needs. Here are the main areas that I wanted my laundry/mud room to include:
1. A coat rack.
2. A concrete sink (to wash off those muddy shoes.)
3. Washer and Dryer area with cabinets to hold supplies.
4. Folding station with baskets for each child’s laundry.
So are you ready for the full tour?! Let’s start when you walk in the back door.
To the left, you will see a coat rack that Cy made with some wood and hangers that we got at Hobby Lobby. This will be a great place to hang our coats and umbrellas. I also found the metal basket on the wall at Hobby Lobby, and the clock at Target.
Several years ago, I found those vintage folding chairs at an antique store. They have been hanging out in the boys’ shoe closet until now, but I thought they would be perfect for this area in our laundry room. I might change them out later for a bench, but for now, they are exactly what we need.
To the right of the folding chairs is my favorite part of the entire laundry room! My vintage concrete sink!
Y’all, I know it may be silly, but I love, LOVE my concrete sink! We found it on Craigslist and drove all the way to North Carolina in one day to get it, and it was worth every penny! It is perfect for washing dirty shoes and water plants. The faucet from Lowe’s is perfect for this sink!
Another feature I love in the laundry room is the beautiful farmhouse pendant light that hangs right in the middle of the space. (**Product links at bottom of post.)
It goes perfectly with the barn lights that I spray painted black for over the washer and dryer.
We finally finished DIY’ing our picture frames for each of my kiddos photos this week, and I think they look great under the barn lights.
And I am so glad that I painted the grids on the windows to coordinate with the other touches of black in the room.
The gray tile on the floor does a great job of hiding dirt and pulling the space together!
To the left of the washer and dryer is an area where I decorated with some laundry detergent and clothes pins. I found the “Nellie” container at Marshall’s and I had to get it! My grandmother’s name was Nellie, so I had to get it.
I also keep a bottle of Purification oil by my washer for those times that I accidentally forget to take the wash out in time and I need to get the “stink” out. :)
The DIY cabinets we built for both sides of the washer and dryer are great for holding supplies like detergent, bleach, rags, cleaning supplies, etc. The black hardware on the doors is also from Lowe’s.
I LOVE the extra light that the barn lights give me when doing the laundry, especially at night. It makes the room feel so bright and cheery!
And I love that my lights shine on the faces of my precious kiddos. Seeing their sweet faces makes doing laundry not so much of a chore!
To the right of the washer and dryer, I put a small trashcan (that I found at Marshall’s) for the lint from the dryer. I also put the fluted white bowl there for all the extra coins that I find in the wash. I consider it my tip jar! :)
I also added a little candle and basket of towels, cause….why not? :)
I found this replica of a vintage drying rack online, and hung it on the wall. Below it is a little stool from Hobby Lobby with a gorgeous green ivy plant from Lowe’s.
The little bucket and towels are both from Marshall’s.
To the right of the bucket is the doorway that leads into our “soon-to-be-butler’s-pantry” that leads into our kitchen. But since that space is not finished, we are just going to jump past that doorway right on over to my folding station.
I knew that I wanted a space to fold all of my kiddos clothes so I asked Cy to build me this folding area. The cabinet holds six baskets, one for each of the kids, and one for me and Cy. After I fold all of the clothes, I put them in the correct basket, and then the kids have to take their baskets to their rooms and put their own clothes away. It is a great system that works perfectly for us! The little baskets hanging on the wall are for keys and wallets.
I found this cute little white bowl at a store called At Home. Doesn’t it look great with yellow mums in it? I am sooooo ready to start decorating with even more mums around the house!
That’s it! My full laundry room reveal! Thank you for coming over!
If you have any questions at all, just leave a comment, and I will answer them. :)
This laundry room project was sponsored by Lowe’s. All ideas and opinions are 100% mine, but the products from the studs in the walls, to the wood planks on the wall, to the tile on the floor, to the lights on the walls and more, came from Lowe’s!
