The Laundry Room

  In 2014 I posted my laundry area (actual it's a closet) reveal.
Although I liked it I soon became tired of the color and the fact that I was constantly putting things back in the baskets they belonged in.

For some reason the men in my house can place their tools back in the proper place . . .

BUT, putting the laundry detergent or whatever they used back in the labeled basket was an impossible task. Eventually I got tired of either reminding them where whatever they used went or putting it back myself.  As the months went by it soon became clear that this just wasn't going to work and I needed to go back to the drawing board.

Some inspiration:

I had decided that I wanted to use wallpaper and it was about this time that I won an $100 gift card from Wayfair (I'm receiving NO compensation from Wayfair for mentioning them in this post.).  After comparing different patterns and colors; I decided on this:

Aurora Regal Damask 3D Embossed Wallpaper

Just a few of the things I needed/wanted in there:
-a rod for hanging clothes
-a cabinet for storing everything from extra laundry detergent to light bulbs.
-a few shelves for decorative items
-a canister to hold laundry detergent for easy reach
-something to store paper towels and cleaning towels in
-place to hang ironing board,  broom, mop and the towel used to wipe our fur babies feet when it is rainy/muddy outside.

I knew I wanted to keep the laundry sign I made for the first redo.

This is such a hard area to photograph. . .but I just love the way it has turned out 😊
