Laundry Room Makeover

I am not the biggest fan of doing laundry - as I'm sure the same goes for just about everyone.
So a makeover was in order to make doing laundry a little less "blah."

UGLY ironing board BEFORE

Split of the AFTER

A small shelf was added over the washer
As you can see above it holds many items that I use daily

I screwed hooks into the wall to hang dedicates
The canvases are from the $1 bins at Michael's, I hung them (like a picture) above the hooks
I hope to add silhouettes of a clothes pin and hanger to each at some point

Baskets hold laundry related items

The ugly ironing board is no more!
I took off the old cover but kept the foam padding
Instead of making a slipcover - I just upholstered the fabric right onto the ironing board with a staple gun

I took an old frame and used the scrap fabric from the ironing board as the background
Then I used my Silhouette machine to cut the cute saying from black vinyl
"Drop your drawers here"

And there you have it! An updated laundry room with little effort and little investment
I believe the only thing I purchased was the fabric (Hobby Lobby), the rest were items I already had!!
