Laundry Room Makeover

Beautiful Laundry Room Makeover on { }

We’ve been in our house for almost 2 years and we finally put some time aside to work on the Laundry Room. We’ve actually been working on it very slowly over the last few months and finally got most of it together this past weekened, and I have been SO excited to share it with you! I still have lots to show you from our home here in Texas, and I’m determined to have it all together this year so stay tuned for even more makeovers from the Merkley Home. πŸ˜‰

Today’s Laundry Room Makeover was a long time coming. I was so grateful to have a designated spot in the house for the laundry but realized it was a big waste of space unless we had some cabinets and storage. Here is what it looked like before:


We added the wood-like tile (didn’t snap a pic of it before this) and knew that cabinets would make a world of difference, especially since I have TOO MUCH stuff and need more places to store it all. πŸ˜‰ I also wanted to make it more “me” and this is what we did…

More than anything we just cleaned it all up, made it look pretty and found places to store all of the “junk” that you can usually find in laundry room.

Here are some more pictures with all the details..

We added the shelving and got those from IKEA. The topiaries and flowers are from HomeGoods.

The Wire Baskets and 11×14 frames are Better Homes and Gardens Products from Walmart. I love the baskets because they store all the things I use but keep them out of sight (like the dryer sheets, sprays, etc.)

I found these cute vintage jars in random places over the last few years. They already came with the buttons inside of them too, and I LOVE them!

To the left of the shelves is this Keep the Change Sign I made several years back. I store all the loose change I find in pockets and have collected quite the stash over the past few years. For the tutorial go HERE.

Under the window is this Better Homes and Gardens Caged Hamper that I adore. It’s so cute and has wheels, and I’m so excited to use it because it’s functional and pretty!

The yellow trash can is from IKEA, and I also love that it is functional and pretty too. πŸ˜‰

Next to the hamper is this yellow chippy board with hooks that I purchased from a swap meet several years back. It’s the perfect place to hang my new apron I picked up from HomeGoods. πŸ˜€

Busy Family Glass Calendar { }

On the left side of the entrance is my wall that will hopefully help me stay organized. πŸ˜‰ I have my Glass Vinyl Calendar that I made several years ago (for the tutorial go HERE) and a wire basket hanger I picked up from Hobby Lobby. I wasn’t in love with the colors of it so I painetd it black and added white vinyl numbers to it. I’m hoping to have a spot for all of the children’s papers and things to help stay more and track… and organized. Heaven knows I need all the help with these 5 kiddos! πŸ˜‰

On the counter of the shelves I added some cute decor pieces. Here they are…

My soap jar is also the one I use for my FLOUR and SUGAR in my kitchen. They are from Walmart, and I’m obsessed with them! I’m pretty sure you can find them in-store only. πŸ˜‰

The Teal Lamp Base is also from Walmart, and I love that it ties in the Laundry Sign I have up on the wall.

I picked up the old Mason jar at an antique shop here in Texas. The White pail was purchased years ago, but I decided to add vinyl that says “Lost Socks” to have them all in one place. It’s definitely full most days. πŸ˜‰

laundry-room-makeover-21On the top shelves I use the ones on the right to store some of my blog items and tools. I used the Wire Baskets again because they are awesome (and cute!) On the left are my cleaning supplies.

On the bottom shelves, I store some of my photo props for all the recipes I take. This is about half of them… and yes, I know I have a TON! I don’t feel so bad because I know some of my friends have wayyyy more. πŸ˜‰

Here are some more pics of some of the smaller items in the room…

  1. holy crap! I LOVE this! We are in the final stages of building a house and are using wood look tile and I’m doing yellow in my house too! I love your laundry room. Can’t wait to make mine (hopefully) as cute!

    1. Building a house sounds like SOO much fun! Can’t wait to do that one day! And you better believe there will be LOTS of yellow. πŸ˜‰

    1. Yes, it’s Mindful Grey by Sherwin Williams… almost our whole house is painted this color and we LOVE it! No hints of green or purple. We’ve had several friends use this paint after seeing it in our home and they love it too. πŸ˜‰

  2. Fabulous job! I love all the creative and personal touches you added.
    The keep the change jar is adorable!!!

  3. Oh my – it’s SO CUTE & exactly like I would imagine your space would be. πŸ™‚ LOVE IT! We are already coming up close on our year in this place & I sooo need to tackle the laundry room too.

  4. Do you like your washer and dryer? I have that same one and I will NEVER buy them again. I hate the washer. So many times I do a load and they come out with soap on them – usually the dark clothes. So irritating. But I love he dryer. Super cute laundry room. LOVE it.

      1. Totally. And I don’t use too much either. I think it’s just the extremely low water. I’m all about not wasting water, but not sure how well this washer does the job. My sister has the same problem. She finally got rid of hers. I was I te rested in someone else’s opinion.

        1. So weird! I LOVE my washer, and have never had the soap on there before. I love that it uses little water and I especially love that if I forget that I washed something I can still stick it in the dryer the next day without having that water-y, musty smell and having to re-wash it. πŸ˜‰

  5. I LOVE your laundry room!!! The white cabinets are fabulous and I love how bright and “you” the room is. Great job! πŸ™‚


  6. Ditto on the printables–I LOVE THEM! Where did you get them? And where did you get your rug? I’ve been looking for one just like that! Love the makeover!

  7. Wondering about those laundry prints too, and where you found them! Love this room and how bright and cheery it is!

  8. Lovely room. My favourite is the lovely splash of yellow, especially the cutesy apron! Now can you please come over and figure out my laundry space πŸ™
    Ok, I’m kidding about the last part, but yes, I love your space!

  9. Love everything about it!! Looks fresh, cheerful, and bright!! Can you please share with us the place you got the flooring, color, brand name, etc, and also, the paint color and brand. Thanks!

  10. Wonderful laundry room. The way you have it set up anyone could follow you example for very little cost… Awesome!! πŸ™‚

  11. This is gorgeous, I wish there was room in my house for a laundry room, instead my washer and drier are in the kitchen. This really is beautiful, I love all the little touches — Romany

    1. Thank you for the kind words, Romany! My Laundry room is right off my kitchen too and I’m so glad for the door that separates it a bit. Thanks again for stopping by! ;D

  12. I Love your laundry room!! We are making me a NEW laundry room, kitchen and 1/2 bath room!! Got some great ideas from you! Can’t wait to see the rest of the house! πŸ™‚

  13. I am doing something very un-Christian right now, because I am coveting your gorgeous laundry room! Love it and you did a great job!

  14. So, so pretty. I don’t really have a laundry “room” more like a corner of the basement, but I’m feeling inspired to make it more pretty and functional. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Oh it’s so lovely! I’m still loving on the grey trend and I especially love it with the yellow since it warms up the grey.

  16. I love the laundry make over I have been trying to figure out what to do to make it look new and inviting and thanks to you, I’m have a start. Thanks

  17. Hi, Your entire space looks beautiful. Where did you get your shelves and cabinets? I am currently looking for some for my laundry room and would love to know. Thanks!

  18. Lots of good ideas! I’m trying to organize mine as I type this. Going to use some of your ideas! Thanks for sharing!

  19. Hello! In your laundry room post, did you print the yellow signs in the white picture frames? If so, could you share the link? These would be perfect for our laundry room make-over.

    Thank you!

  20. Well, this looks quite nice! I used a Houston make ready service to update one of our rental properties recently and our laundry room in that house looks quite similar. Really wish I had the design eye and skills to do it myself, however! Would probably save me a lot of money in the long run.
