Laundry Room

So last time I showed you how to make these yarn foam board letters:

So now I am sharing where I hung my letters up at....

My LAUNDRY ROOM!!! I used to hate laundry, because it would take 4 hours, yes 4 HOURS to do ONE load of laundry from start to finish. When we bought our house we were graciously given a dryer and we paid $100 for a washer off of Craigslist. The set was not matching, but it did the job for the most part. So after 4 years of wasting time doing laundry we decided to buy a pair of front loaders!! We shopped around for quite some time to decide on the brand and style we wanted. We decided on these:

Daewoo with Built-in Smart Detergent System

We I wanted the silver, Brian didn't really care what color we got. So we ordered them in silver and then found out the silver was backordered with no date on when we would get them...I was bummed! I had two options: 1.) I could wait or 2.) change the color to either white or wine colored. After MUCH deliberation, I decided to get the wine colored.

We placed our order again and delivery was scheduled within 2 weeks, so I prepped and painted our laundry room. I also did some pinning of laundry rooms:

After pinning my inspiration pictures I went to work...with the help of my husband. We made a trip to Menards and bought a sheet of 3/4" plywood, #4-2"x2"x8' and a 4ft countertop. After a sunday afternoon we had this built:

I primed and painted it with paint I had laying around. We carried it into the house and squeezed it into its little nook, glued the counter top down, and hung the shelf:

Our washer and dryer got delivered and installed. Over time I have hung some wall decor:

I LOVE this space. It is super tiny, but totally functional. My husband thought that the counter would be a flat spot for stuff to gather on top of, but I have proven him and myself wrong! I keep this room nice and tidy. It is so easy to fold and sort each load of laundry. As nice as this room may look in the above pictures, this room is also the home to:

eeeek! I know, but beyond those huge eye sores this room is pretty ;) I am always leaving the door open to the laundry room now, so I can enjoy its beauty:

Well there is our laundry room! I may still change a few things up, but for now I am enjoying it as is! Do you love your laundry room?
