Considering the amount of time I spend in my laundry room, I can’t believe I waited 6 years for this makeover. We could not be happier with the way it turned out and apparently our followers liked it too. Our laundry room update has been one of the most popular posts since we started on Instagram!

My swing arm clothes hanger sold out yesterday after I shared it on stories (our Amazon finds are saved in highlights), so I linked a similar one for you all. I’m glad I took your advice and found something that would work for my space. #yourethebest #lovethiscommunity #laundryroom #beforeandafter #mudroom #wallpaper #diy http://liketk.it/2JAWJ #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome #LTKfamily #LTKunder50 @liketoknow.it.home Follow me on the LIKEtoKNOW.it shopping app to get the product details for this look and others
Rob and I had not touched this space since we moved in, as is evident in the pics below. Posting my before videos in Instagram stories on @thespoiledhome was downright scary for me. I know all of my organized followers were cringing. I’m sorry.
Our laundry room was not even functional at this point. The only thing that had been updated and did not need to go was the flooring.
Just remember…this is a #NoJudgementZone.
We went with premade cabinets from Home Depot because of time. Rob added trim to the top and bottom to give them a more “custom” look. I chose Peppercorn by Sherwin Williams for the cabinet color. I’m so glad I decided to go with that color. I love it!

Next time I show you my laundry room, it will be done! I can’t wait for it all to come together. I also can’t believe I waited this long to makeover this space. Swipe to see the before picture of this wall….one more thing! I mentioned the other day that I was NOT going to put a bar up to hang clothes on because I know myself and clothes would stay on the bar until someone wore them ?. So many of you messaged me and said it’s a must. What do you all think? Team bar or no bar? I would love to hear your reasons! http://liketk.it/2IZU1 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome #LTKunder50 #LTKfamily @liketoknow.it.home @liketoknow.it.family Shop my daily looks by following me on the LIKEtoKNOW.it shopping app
The After & My Source List!
We had initially planned on having the cabinets sprayed but decided to go with Bethany from The Reclaimed Cottage again. She did such an amazing job. I really can’t recommend her enough.
The dark cabinets pair perfectly with my new wallpaper. It’s called Gaudet Brushstrokes and you can find it here.
Initially, I did not know what to do about a hanging bar for my clothes. I found the perfect solution on amazon here. The utility sink can only be bought in-store at Lowes, so I don’t have a link for that. Our old one had given up the ghost years ago, so we were in desperate need of a replacement. The bottom is not really wood. I initially had a concern about that but that turned out to be a non-issue.
I purchased my cabinet knobs and drawer pulls from Target. They really pulled the room together and go great with my new light fixture. We chose light-colored quartz for the new countertops for contrast. It was a remnant, so it helped us to cut costs on the project.
To finish off the laundry room and add texture I chose a natural color woven laundry basket and rug. I used the same color palette as the kitchen to create a cohesive look. Now that I have updated my laundry room, I often leave the doors open. It almost makes me enjoy doing laundry. Almost.
What size is your laundry room? How did you store laundry baskets?

Hi Stephanie! I’m not sure about the exact size of my laundry room, but it’s not very big. I store dirty clothes in a basket in a lower cabinet. A full size hamper basket fits in the cabinet.
