While it’s not the glamourous extreme of the laundry rooms in my inspiration post it is far superior to our old laundry room in our condo I used for the 5-1/2 years prior.

I love the white …I love the light. I love that it’s off the kitchen and leads to a small guest bathroom with hilarious fern wallpaper and out to the backyard. I hung two Tiffany blue small canvases that I painted for our old master bedroom {dog bowls below} and pillow cases {also from our old master} for the curtains to hide the ugly power cords and any mess that might accumulate on that handy little shelf. I found the white tension-rod at Bed Bath & Beyond by Umbra for $14.99 as well as the Umbra Rosetta drapery clips for $7.99 {bought 2 packs} which easily clip on to the fabric holding it in place. The tall cupboard hides our water heater, and above it I hung an inexpensive wall mounted coat rack to hang our eco grocery bags on. Shown is my beSmartbeGreen logo bag but you can find other cute eco canvas bags here. I’ve also hung random hooks on the sides to hold mesh lingerie wash bag and the striped fruit and veggie plastic bag dispenser, which I found at the market for $3.99 {DIY your own with Dioramarama}.

One thing I would love to add is a top to place over both the washer and dryer that extends to the wall {like in this inspiration photo} …not only to give me a level surface but to protect the tops of my machines and also extend to the wall & give me a few extra inches of counter space. But for now, I love it.
