Hoot Designs – Laundry Room Makeover

I’m so excited to be guest posting here on Shanty 2 Chic!! My name is Chrissy and I blog over at Hoot Designs.  I have followed Ashley and Whitney for a while now and I just love all their projects. They are super clever and doable which is most appealing!!  When Whitney and Ashley emailed and asked if I’d like to guest post I was wondering what in the world will I post, then it hit me, my new laundry room. I have been in the laundry room “redo” stages and this was the motivator I needed to finish and post here on Shanty 2 Chic.

So here it is the new and improved laundry room.  Now, I must say, the room is so tiny and when I open the door it actually just misses the washer so it’s not deep and it’s about 94 inches wide.  Just enough for a little space on either side of the washer and dryer.

I had some wood cut at Lowe’s and I stained it to sit across the washer and dryer as a solid surface.  There are those yucky white shelves behind the yellow chevron curtain. I didn’t want to take them down so I covered them up.

One of the reasons I wanted to have a cute room was because as you look up my stairs this room is at the top, and as you walk up the stairs you look right in the laundry room.  So, a cute washer and dryer were a must and a much needed cute room too.

Here is the before, yuck right? It was in the partial stages of getting ready to paint
Here is an instrgram photo of my pinning and sewing the curtain.
So bright and cheerful

I love home made laundry detergent – here is the recipe. It’s in the clothes pin jar!! The small jar to the left has lost in the laundry items, and things that have taken a “spin.”

The printables I purchased and some were free.

This is a fun pendant I bought at Lowe’s to hang rather then the builders light!

The orange crates were purchased at Michael’s with 40% off coupons and spray pained, they hold cleaning supplies.

You can see the shelf here

Thank so much Ashley and Whitney for having me over at your place so to speak. If you want to take a peek at my blog, Hoot Designs,  here are my links

      Thanks so much – I do love the room now. And I see it as I walk up the stairs so it’s great to have something cute to look at. I even keep it clean :o) ~Chrissy {Hoot Designs}
