Working On The Laundry Room

A few weeks ago my dryer decided to go on the fritz , So after replacing several parts it still wouldn’t heat. Unfortunately it was connected to the washer , as in stacked unit .
Here you can see it from the back , it use to sit beside that wall cabinet and there was a small sink in a cabinet below that .
I decided  not to get another stacked washer and dryer cause I didn’t like the idea of having to replace them both if only one was broke . So my son-in-law and I tore out that sink to make room for a normal washer and dryer .
Here is the space after cleaning and giving it a new coat of paint .
And this is what it looks like now !
I also took out the cabinet I had on the wall to the right and brought in the little green vintage cabinet that I redid a few months ago . I can hide much more stuff in this cabinet and it looks a lot cuter . Plus it brings in that vintage look that I love .
On the opposite wall I used to have an open book case for storage , it always held junk like paint cans and such , it was always ugly . Now I have a bench with suitcases stacked on it . That feed sack hides the electrical panel .
That door you see is my central vac. closet , and there is some storage in there . The back door is to the left of this bench .
On the right side of the washer and dryer is the door into my messy closet , it has another door that opens into my master bath that is on the backside of this laundry. It makes it convenient for putting away clean clothes .
But then there are two more doors in this laundry , one is into the furnace closet .It’s the one with the Ironing board on it .
To the right of the mop and broom wall is the door into the kitchen . That’s right ,5 doors in one tiny room! That makes wall space really sparse .
I use to keep that kitchen door closed all the time , because the laundry always looked awful . but now I am liking it ,and it fits better with the rest of the house . I still have a few things I want to do in there , like get rid of that boarder around the top . I already have it down on the washer and dryer wall but still have to do the rest.  But at least now I’m not ashamed to let people see my laundry room .

If some of you are wondering how the Weight Watchers is going , Since  the end of Feb . I have lost almost 12 pounds . I am still working at it , I would like to loose about 25 pounds . I am learning to eat more healthy foods and watch my portions . I guess that's what it is all about .

  1. What a cute laundry room. Mine is a closet. It used to be sliding doors into the family room. Crazy. We had a wall put there instead and a door around the side. Not sure that we planned for when we had to replace the washer and dryer. Surely we would have, wouldn't we. Well that time is coming, so we will see. I am jealous that you have new ones. Way to go on the weight loss.

  2. Great job both with the laundry room & weight loss. Happy Mother's Day, Jan

  3. Love your laundry cute! Wish mine looked is in an unfinished area of our basement.
    Congrats on the weight loss.

  4. Your laundryroom looks fantastic! My laundry is in the garage and it is a huge embarassing mess! I think I might even enjoy doing laundry in your space :) Have a wonderful Mother's day!

  5. Your laundry room is wonderful! You've got that vintage vibe going on with your green painted cabinet and the cute curtain over the washer. I wish I could move my laundry out of the dark basement! Well done Sharon!

  6. Oh I love your laundry. You have created such a pretty space and full of wonderful storage too. Fabulous I host a party called Inspire Me Tuesday and it goes live every Monday evening. I would love for you to link up any of your projects. Hugs, Marty
