Do you have a small laundry room? Really small? I do but that doesn’t prevent me from adding personality in a teeny tiny laundry room. My friend, Stephanie Abbott whose blog is Abbott’s At Home has a laundry room to die for. But you have to work with what you have.
I have been planning on sharing this with you for several months. The motivation came when Wikibuy reached out to me for a collaboration. You see besides wanting to make a counter top like Stephanie’s, I have been wanting a new light. That is one of the lights I have yet to replace.
Going through the Wikibuy site I looked at Lamps USA and found the perfect lighting fixture to fit the style of the laundry room.
Before I had the blog, the wire shelf was removed and cabinets installed. After that I had beadboard put in. And added laundry room accessories. Some I made and others were bought at thrift stores and retail stores.
One thing that is very handy is the bulletin board with hooks. It is all in the details, I even got Effiel Tower Tacks. I never misplace my keys. The pouches are helpful to organize important cards and papers. I bought these but you can see how to make them here.
There is a handcrafted chalkboard with an inspirational saying, “Love Builds a Happy Home, Laugh Every Day”. It is a great reminder as I come and go. Chalkboards are so easy to make. I created one from a mirror, one from a broken mirror and one on a cabinet door. Another touch is a burlap picture I did. It makes me think of my first real job at a laundromat because it says “Wash Dry Fold 20¢ lb.” I also made a hook from a silver fork.
On a thrifting shopping trip, I discovered an old laundry sack. The perfect piece to frame and hang in the space between the long cabinets. And doesn’t every good laundry room need an old vintage washboard? Don’t forget the Laundry sign that is over the doorway. A welcome sign is over the other door.
Adding personality in a teeny tiny laundry room makes a chore a little more interesting. Don’t you agree?
