Fun in the Laundry Room!

I decided that I needed a shelf to go above my washer and dryer, so I would have more space to fold my laundry...(and to catch all that extra stuff that seems to get lost behind them)
So I asked my friend Keys to check out the situation......I bought a large sheet of maple at Home Depot, and had Keys cut it to size and install it over the washer and dryer. Oh and he painted it too! I like to come up with the projects and Keys works on them for me!
I found these cute knobs on-line a year or so ago.....since I spend half my day in the laundry room I might as well have something fun to look at.
I picked up this pewter dish on the thrift tour......the other containers I bought on my Goodwill don't have to spend a lot of money to look nice....but you already knew that.

Speaking of the GDub...look what else I cam across.....Oh yes, that is an Elfa drawer system from The Container Store...only I didn't pay the $99.00 retail price.....
I paid $6.99 at Goodwill....I love a good bargain!
I had Keys notch the wood out so that wouldn't stick out against the wall...
I looooove it!
It looked like this for about 5 seconds while I took the photos....then it was back to laundry piles and junk everywhere....I'll save you the visual.

Mrs. Meyers dryer sheets smell so good, just buy them to sit out and they will make everything smell delicious!
I "helped" put in the tile floors a few years ago. Another friend "Big Bill" showed me how to do it. But really he didn't want me to mess it up so he did most of it himself. Hey, whatever works!


  1. this room is inspiring! maybe a house tour is in order? ;)

    quick question about your floors...are those standard black and white tiles? is the grout white? i've been in love with a black and white floor since i was a little girl. yeah. i'm nerdy like that!

  2. Lovely room! Make me *almost* want to come over and do the laundry for you :)

  3. Can I be friends with Keys too? Your laundry room looks gorgeous and the door pulls are such a nice touch.

  4. Phenomenal job on this room! I love the door pulls! This gives me the buzz to get organized!


  5. Those are such cute door pulls! Wherever did you find them?

  6. Looks great! If only my laudry room had so much space!!!!
