Jen at Frame Fanatic has made some great changes and organization with her new laundry room design that includes the crafts also.
After much deliberation, I can finally say that I am finished with my laundry/craft room transformation. Well…sort of. I know there will always be more that I may want to add later, but isn’t that how it always is? An ongoing progression? So without further adieu, here it is!
[This is the “before” pic of the laundry room the day we signed on the house. Pretty yucky, huh?]
[Before we moved everything in, we decided to rip up the linoleum floor and replace it with some nice laminate. Here is the under lament.]
[And here is half of the laminate laid down. It’s looking better so far!]
[Ahh…much better! This is the view as soon as you walk into the laundry/craft room. My framed art was talked about in a previous post here.]
[To the left is the utility sink my husband installed. I would like to add a wrap-around curtain to soften it up a bit. But like I said earlier…progression!]
[Next to the sink is the washer/dryer. We installed the shelf directly above it to hold detergent, fabric softener, etc. We replaced the bar hanging below the top shelf (since I never used it) with a clothes line. I am planning on using it to display lost socks, but for now a picture of my daughter and a laundry sign will just have to do. Notice the numbered jars?? I talked about them in a previous post here. Oh, and do you see that framed chalkboard waaaayyy in the back? I talked about that in a previous post here.]
[Across from the washer/dryer is my “craft area”. This is a shelf my husband and I built to hold all of my craft supplies.]
[Below the shelf is a magnetic wall hanging that I can use to display my scrapbook pages, cards, etc. Those magnetic canisters are actually spice jars, but I decided to use them to hold miscellaneous craft embellishments. All of these magnetic products I bought at Ikea.]
[Hidden behind the door are my paper cutters and ALL of my scrapbook paper. I bought those 12×12 file cases from Hobby Lobby. They have been a real space savor!
[The lighting in this room has character of its own. As you saw in the previous photos, I have over-the-shelf lighting and under-the-shelf lighting. And in this photo is a light fixture I bought at Lowe’s (with energy efficient light bulbs, of course!). Why so many lights you ask? Well, I believe that a small room with no windows should be well lit. It really opens up the room and makes it appear larger.]
Well, that concludes the majority of this transformation. I will probably be posting more pics as I slowly update the room. But before you go, check out my “leaning tower of ribbon”! :0)
Nice double use of a space. What do you all think of her organization skills?
