Laundry Room Before & After

blenderama67May 26, 2009

After coming out of a home remodel, my laundry area in the garage became a dumping ground and was seriously neglected. Not anymore!

I was inspired by this laundry room picture I found online at Country Living. I wish mine could look this inviting.

Brace yourself for the before picture. Of course, showing this photo is entirely embarrassing, but look how far I have come in getting in cleaned out and organized! I took the picture right in the middle of clearing it out. What a mess! No wonder I hated doing the laundry. Sheesh!

Are you sitting down?



The dryer will be pushed back against the wall.

I'm still trying to figure out what my accent color will be. I think I am going to add some faux shutters in a a blue shade.

I'm also considering a curtain over where the pipes show up behind the washer. Then again, I sort of like seeing the pipes.

And I am also playing with accessories right now.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Wow...great transformation! Doing laundry must be a treat now (if that's possible). I think seeing the pipes is fine. You can always paint them white to fade into the background. Great job!

Oh- I am jealous! Your laundry room is a mansion- mine is about 1/8th that size. sigh
