DIY Laundry Room Makeover

When we moved in, our laundry room was pretty boring and bare. It needed an upgrade in a big way and give my laundry a Laundry Room Makeover.

For this Laundry Makeover I didn’t want to spend a ton of money but I wanted to change it up. So, this is what I decided to do for my Laundry Room Makeover.
My Laundry Room/ Pantry is pretty small so I wanted to use all the space I had! First thing first we got rid of the old washer and dryer then decided to do something different with the paint color, so we painted stripes and I am so glad we did!
First, the Hubby went to Home Depot and got some wood to build a platform and a shelf!  He did an awesome job, I won’t lie I doubted his wood working skills but he did a great job and he even added trim!

Then we taped off the wall for the stripes! The paint color is a custom color my mom found for me and I love it, it’s like a greenish-blue color!


Here is the trim the Hubby added to the platform, it gave it a much need finished look to it!

Here is the AFTER:

I love having space on the top shelf to store all my cleaning supplies and also paper towels and toilet paper. That stuff is always in my way.

This is the perfect spot to hang my aprons since this room is right off of my kitchen. I love it!


 Once again, my before and after!

What do you think about the makeover? So much better right?

Much Love sign-2

    Love the look! But how do you know the machines wont wiggle off?

    I have a bad back and those blah metal cabinets that the feet of the machines hook into, but they look REALLY blah…. now, if I could have something as cute as yours, but be sure they wouldnt fall out, I’d be thrilled!

      A lady in home depot told me to put a rubber mat under the machine to prevent from moving.

    That is such an awesome idea! A great alternative to forego buying the metal stands..those are expensive. I love what you’ve done. This is going in my fav folder for inspiration. The paint color is perfect!

    How does that new ‘flooring’ do with those machines? I have the LG HE machines and the manufacturer told me that it’s best to have them on a cement floor. Do yours wobble badly? Ever afraid of them vibrating off that cute little shelf? I’m just curious because I SO want to do this…I’m just chicken!

    Love the raised platform. In the one photo there is a center brace but I don’t see one in the finished picture. Was it removed?

    Very good question on the sturdiness of the shelf when washer is spinning?
    And I am wondering what the bracket looking this is against the wall in the pick of the baskets under the W/D set??
    Looks like what it would be if I took the drawers out of the pedestals that I have under my W/D.
    Also , Where are the answers to these questions ppl ask?
    O, and by the way, I LOVE the idea of the baskets under the W/D. I have a very small house and absolutely no room for a laundry basket. This totally solves that problem plus SORTING before washing.
    KUDOS hubby for getting it done. Does your wife loan u out? LOL

      I think that “bracket” is a step stool turned sideways.

    What types and sizes of wood did you use? Can you take some pictures of just the wood portion that holds the machines? Thanks!
