101 in 1001: Overhaul the Laundry Room

Ok, so you’ve seen that we began overhauling the laundry room by tearing everything out and painting it pink. I knew Morgan always wanted a pink room, so we chose a room that is behind closed doors most of the time so my eyes don’t bleed out. Plus, it makes her happy and adds a pop to the place. But after painting, I had to do the actual overhaul.

We went to Lowe’s and grabbed some shelving just like the shelving we got for the pantry overhaul and had it custom cut to our size. There was one dinky shelf before, so we decided to go with two shelves, with one at a reasonable height that we could actual access easily, and one at a higher height for storage of less used items.

You’ll notice we used fancy looking brackets for this project instead of the railings we used in the pantry because we wanted it to look a little nicer and also make sure we had the proper support all the way across the long shelf.

Morgan also wanted me to add a small shelf to accessorize with decorations to bring the room to life. So we bought and cut a board and painted it white. Then I installed it with simple L-brackets at the same height as the top of the washer and dryer.Overhaul the Laundry Room - Charleston Crafted

Now for a couple more pieces. I added hooks on the door to hang clothes that need to air dry.

The final piece of this was to add a wall-mounted ironing board. People at my office are always telling me that I have wrinkles in my clothes that I don’t notice or care about. Neither Morgan or I has ever really learned about or practiced much ironing, but we decided to start. We only had a small travel iron and tiny board that were worthless. So we bought an over-the-door ironing board and a real iron from Target. We had an iron rack and since this ironing board was designed to hang over the door, all I had to do was install the rack and hang it.

And that was it. The transformation was complete!

It feels good to have another room checked off the list that we can enjoy and use properly now. And we crossed numbers 23 and 26 off our 101 in 1001 list in the process!

How do you have your laundry room arranged?

Do you just fold down and he ironing board where it is and use it there? Or do you have to move it to a door? I’m looking for a fold down board but don’t have a door in my laundry that will work. If this is working for you I might give it a try.

Hi Sam! We actually ended up drilling thru the metal of the ironing board into the wall right where you see it here and used it right in that place. You'll want to make sure that the board/the foot of the board if it has one is able to rest on the top of your washer dryer so you are able to push down on it and iron "hard". hope that makes sense! Good luck!!

[…] This is definitely a bold makeover. The hot pink walls aren’t for the faint of heart, but they provide a great background for the white, open cabinet and machines. It is surprising to see the ironing stand doesn’t match, though. charlestoncrafted. […]
