Modern Farmhouse Laundry Room Reveal!
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. :)

I have serious laundry room envy Traci!
This looks like a room I wouldn’t mind spending time it.
Btw, I dint get an email about you post – just fyi
Thank you, Sharon!
Oh, my goodness!! It is beautiful…all your thought and work you put into this laundry is so so worth it!!
Thank you, Sandy!
I LOVE your laundry room!!! It is so well thought out, and I just love all the decor items you put in, especially the pictures of your children!
Thank you, Dianne!
I love, love, love your new laundry room!!! Everything about the room makes you want to hang out there and do some laundry! The room is very functional, but also so pretty. Absolutely love the pictures of your kiddos! Awesome job and I know it will make it easier for you and a pretty place to be.
Thank you, Pam! :). It’s about the only room in my house that looks good right now. ha! So I don’t mind spending time in there at all. :)
Lucky you! I love every inch of it. Job well done. Do you rent Cy out? LOL
Thank you, and I might. :)
Wow, y’all did a great job! It’s beautiful. I love it! It has everything you need to be efficient.
Thank you, Lisa. Yes, I finally have a space that works for me and actually makes laundry somewhat enjoyable. :)
Beautiful….i was so excited to see it all done, you and Cy do such a good job with your home!
Thank you, Rachel! We are SO excited to be DONE! Now, I need to finish my office. :)
Cy and you did a great job again! Most of all I love your sink, lamps, windows and washing / dryer area!
Do you mind if you would take a short video of your laundry room?! I think it would make the laundry room tour more complete!
Absolutely, Tanja! That was the plan, but the weather didn’t cooperate. :(. Hurricane Harvey was here, and it was dark outside. I was able to change the settings on my camera enough to make my photos bright and cheery, but I couldn’t do it on the video, so we are going to take a video as soon as the sun appears again. haha! I’ll be sure to share it. Thanks!!
Your laundry room turned out amazing!! I love the photos under the lights and your tip jar is a great idea! I really enjoyed watching this transformation!
Thank you, Susan! Sometimes my boys try to steal from my tip jar, so I might to get one with a lock! haha!
I can see only one thing wrong with your laundry room…..It’s not at my house! Great job! Beautiful yet functional!
haha! Thank you, Brenda! :)
I love your laundry room! I’m curious; how did you decide which washer/dryer to purchase? I know you were debating on front load versus top load. I’m redoing my laundry room and have to pick a new set. Thanks!
Hi Cheryl! We went with a Maytag top loader from Lowe’s, and we love it!!! After getting a lot of negative feedback on my blog about the front loaders, I decided to go with the top loaders. The guy at Lowe’s also said that the front loaders get returned more often and need more service, so I went with the top loader. Hope that helps!
I made the same decision – a Maytag top loader – when I replaced my old washer and dryer several years ago. My new machine does not have an agitator which I learned (after I had purchased it) some people disliked because they said their wash came out all bunched up and twisted together. Hmmm. I already had the new machine so I did research online and came across a woman who had solved the issue by NOT just throwing the wash into the tub (remember, no agitator) but instead, placing it around the edges of the tub. I’ve continued to follow her advice and have never had the twisted-up issue. My drum is large as well and I’ve washed comforters for several friends in it.
I was telling a friend about my new washer and she came over to see it. My machine has a clear glass/acrylic lid. You would have laughed at seeing two grown women staring down into a washing machine (as if it was the most fascinating thing in the world) as it went through its cycles. Long story short, she and her husband bought one a week later. Lol.
Yes, it does. Thanks so much!
It is a beautiful fantastic laundry room! I’m curious about your washer and dryer. Brand? type? I have a front loader and when we build am seriously thinking of replacing it with a top load for better abilities to soak. The room is truly beautiful!
HI Rachel! We got our Maytag washer and dryer at Lowe’s, and we love it! It is an extra large capacity because we have so much laundry to do. It has really cut down on the time I spend doing laundry because I am able to wash and dry so much at once!
Wow wow wow!! It looks great and makes laundry not seem like a job. By the way, how’s the kitty? Are her legs ok?
Thank you, Bridget! Journie is doing great! Her leg is just fine! :). She was just so weak that her legs were wobbly and we thought it was broken, but it’s not! yay!!
What a lovely and charming space to do laundry! Love it!!😍
Thank you, Dawn!
You did such an excellent job in your new laundry room. Painting the windows was so smart! My one question is, where does your dirty laundry reside? Do you have a hamper of some kind? Piles on the floor LOL? Dianne
Hi Dianne! Good question. :) Right now, the dirty laundry is in bins in the room right beside our laundry room (which was actually our old laundry room). It will eventually be called our “butler’s pantry” because one side of that space will be a custom built cabinet holding our extra kitchen dishes and on the other side of the room, closest to the laundry room, Cy is building me a cabinet that will hold and hide our laundry hampers. Of course, I will share all of that on the blog. :) xoxo
So beautiful! I love all of it! Thanks for sharing
Thank you, Laura!
Your laundry room turned out awesome!
Thank you, Cindy!
Beautiful room, Traci!!
Thank you, Sue!
I’m so in love with this laundry room!!!!!
As always, all your projects are incredible!!!
Did you custom made the frame that holds the sink or did come with it?
Hi Maira! Thank you so much! Yes, the frame came with the sink. It was a rusty green color, but we sanded it and painted it black. Thanks!
I’m finding it hard to find my favorite thing in this fantastic laundry room. It’s between the sink and the folding cabinet. Everything is so organized and I’m jealous. Love it.
Thank you, Sue! I am super pleased with how it all turned out. :)
I love how it all came together! That sink is beautiful, and the black windows really tip everything over the top. Just lovely.
Thank you so much, Ashlea!
I just love it. Simple but everything you would want. I love those windows.
Thank you, Carol!
It is just perfect and I absolutely love the b/w photos of the kiddos. I’m sure it makes doing laundry a much more pleasant task! Happy long weekend!
Yes, it does, Lea! :). Happy Labor Day weekend to you too! xoxo
Beautiful Traci! Love everything about it.. my favorite thing is the pictures of your kiddos 😊
Thank you, Lisa!
Wow very nice work done here !!! What about the concrete sink? Where did you find that?
Thank you! I got the vintage concrete sink on Craigslist. :)
Your laundry room turned out great! I love the size of the room and how multi-functionality it is. Those vintage folding chairs add so much charm and tie in so nicely with your wood countertops. Enjoy your new space!
I love your room! I’m planning to remodel my laundry room in October so you have given a lot of great ideas! Did you make the sign over your folding table? I would love to have one like it? Thanks, Debbie
I love the sign over the folding table also. Can you purchase it anywhere?
Thank you! I got it at Hobby Lobby! :)
Traci, this is stunning! I LOVE that sink! I had one in my old house and wish I took it with me…but it was kinda heavy ;)
Beautiful! Just curious… have you used those Pella 450 windows in the past. If so, just wondering what you think of them.
I have not used them in the past, but so far, I LOVE them!
You are really good At this Traci!!! So well thought out, put together, and decorated!
I hope you know how lucky you are to have Cy. He can build anything!
Love your new laundry room! Everything was well thought out even down to the decor. I know y’all will enjoy it for many years. Where did you get the little rug under the chairs?
We have concrete sinks in the house (1950s) I grew up in; my mom used to bathe me in them when it was to hideously hot to be upstairs! and i see black framed windows are becoming a thing now aren’t they? Lovely room
I’m drooling! I love everything you did! Thanks for sharing!
Traci! This is so incredible – I absolutely love everything about it! What a dream space – and you have finished it so perfectly!!
Thank you, Krista!
So jealous this isn’t mine! I wouldn’t mind doing the laundry! lol Did you make the sign over the folding table or buy it? I LOVE it!
Thank you! I bought that at Hobby Lobby! :)
Its so beautiful!! What is the black color on the door? Its the perfect black!
There is not too much more that I can say, other than, p.e.r.f.e.c.t. in every way! You and your husband are just amazing, I have been following you since you and Cy made the Ballards look-a-like cafe shelving, I have been hooked every since!
I also keep you and your family in my prayers!
By the way, how are the kitties getting along these days?
You are so sweet, Denise! You’ve been following us for a long time! LOVE IT! :)
Thank you so much for your prayers.
Our outdoor cat, Sassy, is still not too fond of our new kitten, Journey. We’ve decided to just keep them apart by making Journey an indoor cat. :)
Someone please punch me, I think I must be dreaming! What a beautiful space! Please tell me where you got the baskets for your folding station?
Thanks! I got the baskets at Michael’s craft store.
Looks beautiful! Where’d you get the baskets in your folding area? Thanks
Thank you. The baskets are from Michael’s.
This is so beautiful and functional! Thanks for the inspiration. Can you share what color stain you used on the wood top as well as any additional coat you used to seal it. Thanks!
I’d like to know the stain and info on the folding station top too
It’s MinWax Dark Walnut.
Oh, my gosh, Tracy! I absolutely LOVE your laundry room! I had been waiting for that moment! You are SO talented! 🤗
Thank you so much, Nidia! :)
The laundry room looks amazing! Where did you find the large baskets for the folding station?
Those are from Michaels! Thank you! :)
I have never seen a concrete laundry sink look so good! I had one and got rid of it a few years ago, sold it for 20 bucks. I had it sitting on cinder blocks outside and it drove me crazy. It looks great on the black metal base and with all the shiplap walls. Nice room!
Thank you, Chloe!
I’m sure many people would like to get rid of their concrete sinks! ha!
Like everyone else, love the sink!….Quick question…how does it drain? Did it come with holes in the bottom?
Hi Diane! Yes, it already had drains in the bottom of each side of the sink, and my husband ran new lines into our own plumbing. :)
Traci~ I love everything about your laundry room. From the kids’ pictures, to the lights, to the plank wall, to the folding station with baskets. Oh my goodness!! The whole room is beautiful!!!! Great job! ~Linda
Hi Traci, Love Love Love it! Where did you find those baskets?
I found those at Michael’s.
What size are those baskets?? You have inspired my laundry room for my new house! :)
These are the ones I got at our local Michael’s store: https://www.michaels.com/large-dark-wash-water-hyacinth-rectangle-basket-with-dowel-handle/10349550.html#pmpt=qualifying&sz=24&start=133
I love the baskets where you put the folded clothes! Where did you get them?
I got those at Michaels a couple of years ago.
Your Room is beautiful! Where did you get the cabinets that sits by the washer and dryer, and what are the dimensions? Please give more info in the cabinets!!
My husband actually custom built those cabinets. The link to that tutorial should be in this blog post. (I think.) :)
Hi!! I was just wondering if you knew how far above the laundry sink you mounted the faucet? I have single basin concrete sink and am trying to figure out what makes sense for the faucet? It looks like yours is maybe only a couple inches above? Do you like that height? Thanks!!!
Hi Kayla! We moved from that house last July, so I am not sure of the exact height of the faucet. I’m sorry I’m not of more help.
