A sneak peek at our laundry room redo (plus craft supply organization tips)
Hello friends! We are officially neck-deep in our current flip house project (photos and “before” video coming soon), so I haven’t had much time to work on our own home. But we are this.close to finishing our laundry room renovation, so I thought I’d share the progress with you because, honestly, I don’t know when we’ll get around to completing the final details. 😉
Just to recap … we removed a wall leading into our garage storage closet and used that space to expand our laundry room. Here’s what the space looks like before expansion (on a really good day):
Here’s what it normally looked like:
And here’s what it now looks like today:
I still have to install crown molding around the plank ceiling, add hardware to the cabinets, and add a filler piece to the center of the lower cabinets. But other than that, we’re pretty much done. I was lucky to have these pros helping me out with the project: 😉
I chose hickory cabinetry to help tie the space in with our hickory floors in the living and dining rooms.
The wall color is Accessible Beige by Sherwin Williams (I had it mixed at Lowe’s in Valspar Signature – Eggshell finish).
The flooring is engineered hardwood plank from Wayfair. The accessories are from Hobby Lobby. The countertop is off the shelf at Lowe’s.
What I really love about the added space in our laundry room is that I now have an area I can dedicate to sewing and crafting! I’ve already begun organizing my supplies.
I was recently introduced to a cool new crafting product called Sugru® Mouldable Glue. A sample was sent to me to try out and review.
It’s a soft-to-touch, flexible, grippy substance you can use to bond ceramics, metal, glass, wood, etc. I used it to help organize my sewing supply drawer in the new laundry space.
I attached the containers to the bottom of the drawer liner to keep stuff from slipping around. It worked like a charm!
Oh, and that pin cushion you see in the bottom left corner of the drawer? I DIYed that in about 5 minutes.
I purchased a block of styrofoam for about 97 cents at Walmart (craft section), trimmed out a piece of scrap fabric, and adhered the fabric to the block with spray adhesive. Done!
I’m excited to finish this laundry room space and load the rest of the drawers up with all my sewing and crafting goodies.
What do you think of the laundry room redo so far? It cost us a total of about $1,500 to complete.
