Laundry Room Redesign + $500 Home Depot GIveaway


Today I am sharing my dirty laundry... 


well technically my dirty Laundry Closet.  Recognize those doors?!  Yes, our Laundry Closet is in our Dining Room.  While not ideal, we have tried to work with it.  This area of our home has been a hot mess since move in day.  I appreciate the fact the previous homeowners did a little renovation here in order for us to house a washer/dryer stacker unit (otherwise we would be in the muddy crawl space...yeah) but there was not a lot of attention to detail paid back here.  Wire shelves were hung on 1x4's that were Liquid Nails'd to the wall.  Drywall was not finished correctly in the corners & the oddest narrow alcove was left... more on that later.

Yes, there were shelves.  But they were those cheapo wire shelves that everything seems to fall through.  Plus all of the shelves were so deep it was nearly impossible to keep organized.  We have tried... this was at the end of our attempt.  Epic fail!

Like most of you, our laundry room serves a double purpose.  It also holds a good majority of our tools.  Which has been the worst part!  We have a lot of tools out in our shed, but I try to keep a good amount directly available... just in case I feel the need to hammer something immediately.  It happens often.  But the problem with tool bags is they are virtually impossible to keep organized. 

When Maytag, Tide & the Home Depot asked me to pair up & share tips to help others Redesign their space for the #BrilliantHEClean Campaign, we needed to take a hard look into our situation as well.

I am pleased to say that after a lot of planning, some serious work on the hubs' part  & a handful of luck we were able to create a space that fills all of our needs.


After fixing some of the issues within the closet, we were able to find this stacking shelving unit from Martha Stewart Living Collection at the Home Depot.  This two piece unit ( top | bottom ) fit perfectly within our narrow space & allows for deeper storage on the bottom & smaller on the top.  

Wanting a little visual interest on zero budget I used a roll of Wrapping Paper along the back.  Love the dragonflies... but if I don't in a few months it will be so easy to switch out.


Organizing your cleaning items, which lets face it aren't always so cute, in decorative containers makes the chore of laundry a little more bearable.  Glass containers are great because you can see immediately what's in them, but chalkboard labels work really well for solid containers.


I like using a more open weave basket for cleaning supplies.  This allows you (or others... someone else might clean someday) the ability to clearly see what the items are, while still containing them.


I have also recently switched to a very narrow hanger.  I have been able to fit double the clothes in half the space.  Great when the one thing you are lacking is space...



But... "Where are your Tools?!?"  I'm so glad you asked.  Remember that odd alcove we were left with...


what...


That narrow alcove was just big enough (& I mean just!) to add a pegboard pocket door to store all of our must have at a drop of a hat tools.  And a few more...


There are so many accessories for organizing these pegboards... you can literally hang anything.


Even with a little creativity, I was able to store my wrapping paper collection so they don't get ruined before I use them.  You know what I am talking about.  I ran a long piece of twine through the tube, tied a knot & simply hung it on one of the hooks.  Easy.

While not your typical laundry area, this is a space that now functions for us.  So don't be afraid to allow a space to pull double duty for you.  The addition of a peg board would also be great for sports storage, pet accessories or a multitude of other options.  Yours doesn't have to be on a sliding track, but just attached to a blank wall, behind a door, or even inside a cabinet.


Thanks to the #BrilliantHEClean campaign you can win a $5000 Laundry Room Redesign of your own, as well as a brand spanking new Maytag Powerwash Washer & Dryer set.  Did I mention you win an eDesign by Jenny Komenda of the Little Green Notebook for your Laundry Room!  Crazy good.  Sign ya up right?!  Well all you have to do is follow this link to enter.  



And if all of that couldn't get any better, you all can enter to win a $500 Gift Card to the Home Depot plus a sample of Tide to help start your own Laundry Room Redesign!

  5. My laundry room is actually part of my living room and a through way imto the garage. I would love to revamp it with paint and a new floor, since everyone sees it no matter how hard I try to keep that door shut.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Oh what a great transformation, I love your wallpaper. I could so use a 500 dollar gift card!

    ReplyDelete
  7. What a great use of space! I love the sliding peg board. Our laundry room could definitely use a lift. It is located in with the furnace and hot water heater. Needs a new paint job and rearrange the shelving. Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. You do not cease to amaze me! Love it!

  9. You do not cease to amaze me! Love it :)

  10. I would love to paint our laundry room a bright white since it does not get any natural light! Great job on the updates!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh man...mama needs a new dryer!

    ReplyDelete
  12. We live parallel lives :)

    That pegboard wall is so smart!

    ReplyDelete
  13. totally need more storage solutions in our laundry room!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh my goodness. Seriously genius. I've thought about moving our laundry up from the basement, but had no idea where we'd put it... this gives me hope that I can tuck it almost anywhere!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm always impressed by your design & ingenuity!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love everything you do! So clever. Would love to know where you got the black polka dot fabric in the basket?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love your sneaky peg board! I need to get in on that peg board action!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I just want to beautify it. I spend so much time there, it should at least be pretty, right?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am so wowed by that pegboard pocket door storage! Great job! My laundry room needs a serious makeover. i have a great space, an actual room on my second floor, but builder grade wire shelves and absolutely no style.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I would totally revamp my laundry area "situation" (its in the basement). Maybe create a "room" within the basement to house the washer/dryer, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would start with a new washer/dryer.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow, that pegboard pocket door is awesome! I would love to redesign my laundry room. The closet it's in is large, but much of the space is taken up by our water heater and main water shutoff. I'd love to find something to help organize. It has a wire shelf above the washer/dryer, but oddly the shelf is hung incredibly high. I say oddly, because I can only reach the shelf on my tiptoes, but all the bathroom mirrors in the entire are hung so low I cannot even see myself in them without bending my knees. What sort of odd couple lived in this house before we did? I'm imagining a giant and a midget.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would change out the light fixture and closet doors and paint the back of my shelves a fun color with $500 from Home Depot.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, what a transformation! It looks fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  25. fabulous redesign! love the pocket door!

    ReplyDelete
  26. The peg board is fantastic.

    Our laundry room is just the corner of our unfinished basement. Storage & workspace is definitely an issue and it would be so nice to get some sort of cabinet with a counter to be able to fold laundry on. Additionally, I could definitely use some proper lighting...

    ReplyDelete
  27. our laundry room needs some better use of vertical space!

    ReplyDelete
  28. My laundry room is literally a closet too. $500 could go a long way!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Pegboard door is genius! Our laundry is also the entry from the garage, making it so hard to keep clutter free and looking halfway decent. Have been racking my brain for years trying to come up with better (and cuter!) storage solutions!

  30. I LOVE the peg board idea and that lovely dragonfly paper!

    My laundry room needs so much help. The cabinets above the washer and dryer are so high that I have to use a foot stool to get to them and even then, I have to lean and reach as far as my little arms will go to get things out of there. Such a pain! I need to either lower them or remove them completely and rework the space. And the walls.. the walls need colour. Sooooooooooo much colour!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I first need to create a space. I have my washer and dryer in the garage and I would like to create it's own space and add some shelving to help organize all of my laundry supplies. Next, I would create a countertop to help with folding the clothes and create storage underneath this countertop.

    ReplyDelete
  32. My laundry room is in our unfinished basement. I would love to add walls, paint, flooring, and much more!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Bright new paint of wall paper for sure. I'd also add some storage! Home Depot is my favorite store...Love this giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'd love a place to hang things that need to air dry! Right now they just end up on my shower rod.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Genius!!! I love the peg board idea with all your go-to tools! I usually have some lying on my dryer! My laundry room is such a mess and I have done a few thigs to try and organize (baskets & labels) but it needs so much more work!!!

    Blessings,

  36. This is really great! I am mentally trying to tackle the problem of where to move our laundry room in the house to expand our kitchen - you showed what you can do with even a small closet space to be functional, and (the most fun part!) PRETTY! :)The peg board sliding door is the BEST take-away! Creative!!

    We are currently building a home, and I can't wait to make my laundry room fabulous too! I really want to put cabinets above the washer ad dryer to keepit clean looking :) I am planning on painting the room a coral/pink, putting a drum light with color in there and a fun rug! Let's hope my plans actually come through!

    ReplyDelete
  38. The sliding pegboard is genius! It's what I would add now that I've seen yours!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh wow... this is frickin' awesome, lady! I've loved all your makeovers but this one really takes the cake. I'm frantically looking around my house for a place to install a sliding pegboard tool organizer, especially since mine are all dumped in a spider-infested drawer right now. :/ You're amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh my gosh!! That pegboard?? Brilliant use of space!! Love the shelf and wrapping paper too!

    ReplyDelete
  41. WOW! Beautiful work. Very unique and creative space!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've been trying to figure out what to do with our small laundry space and would love to win this! Your post is so inspiring! What a great giveaway! Martha M.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Incredibly amazing and totally inspires me to do something with my laundry room. Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  44. We haven't closed on our house now, but I HATE the current location of the laundry room {in the center of the kitchen!}, so I'd want to move the location :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I have a small section like this on the side of my washer and dryer. I need a shelf there so bad!! It almost looks like you had to build it in the closet!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Of course it's stylish and oh so cleverly functional cause you have a knack for that! The sliding peg board storage idea is mind blowing. We began a laundry room "reno" 18 months ago, sigh, hubby's part is finished and its just been waiting for me ... maybe I can get going on that with your inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wow! It's amazing what you can do with such a small space!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Amazing transformation! I LOVE the pegboard!

    If I were to win, I'd use all that to give my laundry room a facelift, no joke. It is a dark scary dungeon right now. Cement floors, badly painted cinderblock walls from previous owners...no ceilings (just the wires and ducts and joists from the floor above) and tons of spiders. Ew!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I would create some kind of folding station. And get bins to help organize the cabinets!

    ReplyDelete
  50. ok, that peg board was pure brilliance - which is why you're a designer, clearly. great thinking!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Awesome job using wrapping paper as wallpaper!

    ReplyDelete
  52. p.s. how did you attach the wallpaper??

    ReplyDelete
  53. I would maximize my space, as you have done here. I love love love wallpaper- so it would have to include something beautiful to stare at while I aimlessly fold clothes humming to myself. How much more enjoyable would a beautiful pattern make that experience!

    ReplyDelete
  54. This is brilliant, girl! Great use of space. Esp love the dragonfly wallpaper and sliding pegboard. You will get so much use out of that!! ox

    ReplyDelete
  55. very inspired by your "wallpaper" and would now love to incorporate wallpaper in our laundry room! a new washer and dryer wouldn't hurt either - our home was a foreclosure when we bought it 5 years ago, the previous homeowners took EVERYTHING and left the washer and dryer: yep, that's how great they are...

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love it! My laundry room is disgusting, it's in my basement, and could use some work!

    ReplyDelete
  57. That is such a creative use of your space, Kristin! The pegboard pocket door?? What will you think of next!?! I have been daydreaming about moving our washer & dryer upstairs, where our bedrooms are, and utilizing the space they were in for a pantry. How I'd love love love a little help to make that happen! :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. wow! everything looks pretty cool and fun, but when you slide the board over...you definitely brought it to another level! way to go!

    ReplyDelete
  59. This is fantastic! I love the dual purpose space. I just moved into a new house with a very sad laundry space with zero shelves or cabinets... time for a make over of my own!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Add a countertop first, then some organization and paint - it's been a little neglected since we moved in!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Love it! I'm now frantically trying to find a place where I can add a sliding peg board!

    ReplyDelete
  62. i LOVE that peg board! i'd either want to steal that idea, or add a sink. a laundry sink has always seemed super useful.

    ReplyDelete
  63. How cool! I would love to win a laundry room makeover.

    ReplyDelete
  64. We're currently renting, but I'd love to rip off the doors of our laundry room and give it a bright coat of paint with new shelving!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oh my gosh, I love this!! You guys did such an amazing job with that space! I love the pocket door, I would love to try something like that with my laundry area!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Wow!! It looks awesome! I love everything about it.

    ReplyDelete
  67. It looks beautiful! I have a stack washer/dryer as well and this is wonderful inspiration to clean this space up!

    ReplyDelete
  68. It looks great! I have a stack washer/dryer as well. This is wonderful inspiration for me to spruce up my space!

    ReplyDelete
  69. this is amazing! i LOVE the sliding peg board and also feel better about myself that others keep their tools in the laundry room too!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Perfect place to store frequently used tools!!! Would love to rip out the useless "closet" and do built in cubbies!

    ReplyDelete
  71. this is amazing! i love the peg board!

  82. Oh my goodness...my laundry situation is pretty bad..in an old basement, no light, old washtub AND cobwebs! Would love the pretty pegboard idea somewhere!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'd love to add something functional like that pegboard!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Our laundry room is actually the original kitchen of our 1955 home. The previous owners tore out all the old cabinetry leaving gaping holes in the walls. Even drywall would be an improvement. :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. What a lovley transformation ... my laundry room is so under utilized, I must update it

    ReplyDelete
  86. This looks amazing! Great job ;) we have those wire shelves too... Uhg.

  88. Seriously GENIUS! I cannot get enough of that! I keep coming back just to swoon again! I love this great use of space! And lets be honest, I would be leaving it open a whole lot just to enjoy the new space! I love how a new space feels so fresh! bravo!

    ReplyDelete
  89. There are so many ingenious ideas on blogs like yours as well as Pinterest. I'd love to spruce up my space.... as the washer repair man is coming tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Love how you used every last inch of space! I kind of want a pegboard pocket door, now! Great job...per usual! ;0)

    ReplyDelete
  91. I LOVE the pegboard idea! Our laundry room also houses the attic access door, and is wierdly angled, so the only functional wall houses the washer and dryer. Also, our laundry is on the 2nd floor, so we are required by code to have a washer pan - it bites my toes every time! BUT, it is an actual room, and I have two cabinets in there as well, so it's a step up from our last 2 homes.

    My wish list includes paint for the walls and floor, maybe something fun on the access door (which is 3x3 and in the middle of the wall). I'd love to paint and move the cabinets higher, allowing for an open shelf or two below (we have really high ceilings). A painted pegboard with clips for all of our mateless socks would be awesome, and could also corral the sewing bits I'm always into (like patches, fusible web, and the like) and hate having to paw through my sewing basket to find.

    It really wouldn't take much to make me happy. I'd be a couple hundred bucks would make it over, with $ to spare!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Wow! This is an amazing redesign. It looks so good! I would paint my laundry room and add a hanging rack or bar so I could hang up clothes straight out of the dryer. I would also look at putting in different shelving because right now it is just the metal-coated kind. Wood shelving would be nice!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I would love to add a counter for folding above the washer and dryer!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Looks really cute and the dragonfly paper makes it all look great. I need one of those shelving units.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Well, first I would probably put up some drywall so we could hang cabinets!

  98. Looks awesome!! I would love to redesign our laundry room by adding closed storage for all the things the kiddies don't need access to, a counter top for folding laundry over the washer and dryer, open shelving, and a rack for drying clothes right out of the laundry. I would definitely paint the walls, add some beautiful laundry related artwork and spruce up the vinyl flooring. All in my head...someday it will be out! =))

    ReplyDelete
  99. I love love love the pegboard idea too! We have so little closet space in our house that anything that helps with storage is a miracle. :) You did such a great job Kristen! (As usual :))

    ReplyDelete
  100. How clever and crafty are you!!! This looks absolutely fabulous. Bravo, well done!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I too have nasty wire shelving I'm dying to get rid of. Looks fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I love your blog! You make things look so much more bright & happy. I think that kind of atmosphere is essential for places like the laundry room. If I had a choice for redesign, I would definitely go for the lighting in my laundry "room"/closet-- the fluorescent bulbs just make it cold and laundromat-ish! Changing out the lighting can make the space so much more welcoming! And adding some happy patterns in there on the walls can't hurt!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Wood shelves a counter and tile floors!!

    ReplyDelete
  104. First of all, fantastic job on that space! Amazing!
    Also, we would use the gift card to painting the room and adding shelves and more storage. We haven't touched that room yet and it's the only one in the house that hasn't been decorated!

  118. Oh my gosh, this could not come at a better time! My laundry room is in my garage - the floor is faux brick roll vinyl, the walls are just the open studs and the ceiling is unpainted plywood. I spend TONS of time in the laundry room (I have 3 boys) and I would love a clean, fresh (white!) laundry room! :-)

  119. My laundry room is in the unfinished part of our basement - some storage and paint would go a long way!

  121. I love our laundry room in our new home but would eventually love to replace the wire shelves with cabinet. Great job on your laundry room reno!

    ReplyDelete
  122. Wow, that is great. I have a stacking washer/dryer and while it's organized, it never occurred to me to make that spot look pretty. I'd definitely set up a pegboard!

    ReplyDelete
  123. We are in the process of doing an addition that includes a BIG laundry/Dog room!

    ReplyDelete
  124. Beautiful and so clever with the peg board! Im still living in the land of wire sheving and mismatched washer/dryer..the positive..my laundry is on the second floor so at least it's convenient!

    ReplyDelete
  125. We also have a laundry closet that is not working well for us. I was just saying to hubby tonight that I need to come up with a storage solution for that space, but an overhaul is not really in the budget right now. I would love to have the opportunity to win!

  134. Amazing what some organization and cute wallpaper can do. And a pegboard, of course, is there nothing they can't do?? Would love to add some paint to my laundry area!

    ReplyDelete
  135. I am loving this, great job! Spicing up the laundry room is so the new black, right?!!

    ReplyDelete
  136. I've been wanting to redo our laundry room, too. I'd love to put in cabinets to hide all our supplies behind and something that would give me hanging space. Your peg board idea is fantastic. I need to keep that in mind -- I'm sure there's SOME WHERE I can find to adapt your idea!

    ReplyDelete
  137. Gorgeous!! I would love to organize my cabinets of junk in my laundry room

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  143. We would buy a stackable dryer

    ReplyDelete
  144. Such a great use of space! Love the dragonflies and I don't even know where to begin with that pegboard tool storage. Genius I tell ya! Thanks so much for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  145. More shelves. I always seem to need more shelf & Counter space

    ReplyDelete
  146. I'm planning our laundry room redo as well and I plan on saving a bundle by painting our concrete subfloors, replacing our upper cabs with open shelves, bringing in new lighting and carving out space for a mudroom as well since its the most used entry of our home right off the garage.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Beautiful job! Our laundry room is first on my list when e kids go back to school in a few weeks. It is the walk through area from our garage and also houses our extra refrigerator, shoes and cat litter box. I would love to stack our washer dryer and add some awesome shelving as well as conceal the cat box! A lot to do, but will be so worth it!

    ReplyDelete

  158. That's a downright inspirational project! I loved the wrapping paper back, but especially loved the way you hid your tools. I need to figure out how to do that... mine are in a big pile on a very narrow workbench. Thanks for sharing!

  160. Very clever use of space. Love the sliding peg board. I would love to add a counter top over my new front loaders. Seeing your peg board makes me want to add it to the back wall. It won't slide out of site but it would be extra storage and who could argue with that?? Thanks for the chance to win.

  162. Ugh! Where to start?!? Probably with actually drywalling the walls so they are slightly less scary... and paint, much paint.

  179. our new home has the old 80's style dark wood cupboards above the washer and dryer that would need to be transformed into cute white open shelving for cleaning supplies. the laundry room is the tiny kind that serves as a walkthrough to the garage and the opposite wall behind where the doors open to is a whole wall of those same beautiful cupboards that currently serve as my pantry until further changes on this house. those need to at least partially come down to transform the space into more of an entry/mud room type function.

  180. Your laundry room looks amazing. I want to paint my laundry room cabinet first.

    ReplyDelete
  181. I have a hall closet laundry room too! Some shelving on the side would be amazing!

  184. A creative use of space. This shows you can do a lot with a small space, and make it attractive as well.

  185. My laundry room is a closet - similar to yours, but longer. It was super dirty when we moved in, and the hubs did not think it was important to clean it up before we shoved our washer and dryer in. When (not if!) we redo this room, we will clean (scrub) the floors and baseboards, paint the walls a pretty blue, and remove the builder-grade metal shelves. Then we can replace them with a couple of cabinets and wood shelves. I'd love to elevate the washer and dryer on a platform, too!

    ReplyDelete
  186. You are so clever! I would love to spruce up our laundry room with some new paint, storage, and maybe even something pretty for the floor :)

    ReplyDelete
  187. I want to paint my walls, add a rolling cart between the washer and dryer wit pretty jars for storage. Then a bright rug, a spruced up garbage can and a new shelf over the washer and dryer...here's hoping it's me!

  190. we're in the process of renovating our whole house right now and i'm afraid once the big things are done, we'll just end up throwing a makeshift laundry room together. but there's nothing like enjoying a space like that, to make doing laundry and those menial tasks that much more fun! i'd love to add nice pops of color and great storage!
