Laundry Room Design With Craft Room All In One: Guest Remodel

20 August 2010

Jen at Frame Fanatic has made some great changes and organization with her new laundry room design that includes the crafts also.

After much deliberation, I can finally say that I am finished with my laundry/craft room transformation. Well...sort of. I know there will always be more that I may want to add later, but isn't that how it always is? An ongoing progression? So without further adieu, here it is!

[This is the "before" pic of the laundry room the day we signed on the house. Pretty yucky, huh?]

[Before we moved everything in, we decided to rip up the linoleum floor and replace it with some nice laminate. Here is the under lament.]

[And here is half of the laminate laid down. It's looking better so far!]

[Ahh...much better! This is the view as soon as you walk into the laundry/craft room. My framed art was talked about in a previous post here.]

[To the left is the utility sink my husband installed. I would like to add a wrap-around curtain to soften it up a bit. But like I said earlier...progression!]

[Next to the sink is the washer/dryer. We installed the shelf directly above it to hold detergent, fabric softener, etc. We replaced the bar hanging below the top shelf (since I never used it) with a clothes line. I am planning on using it to display lost socks, but for now a picture of my daughter and a laundry sign will just have to do. Notice the numbered jars?? I talked about them in a previous post here. Oh, and do you see that framed chalkboard waaaayyy in the back? I talked about that in a previous post here.]

[Across from the washer/dryer is my "craft area". This is a shelf my husband and I built to hold all of my craft supplies.]

[Below the shelf is a magnetic wall hanging that I can use to display my scrapbook pages, cards, etc. Those magnetic canisters are actually spice jars, but I decided to use them to hold miscellaneous craft embellishments. All of these magnetic products I bought at Ikea.]

[Hidden behind the door are my paper cutters and ALL of my scrapbook paper. I bought those 12x12 file cases from Hobby Lobby. They have been a real space savor!

[The lighting in this room has character of its own. As you saw in the previous photos, I have over-the-shelf lighting and under-the-shelf lighting. And in this photo is a light fixture I bought at Lowe's (with energy efficient light bulbs, of course!). Why so many lights you ask? Well, I believe that a small room with no windows should be well lit. It really opens up the room and makes it appear larger.]

Well, that concludes the majority of this transformation. I will probably be posting more pics as I slowly update the room. But before you go, check out my "leaning tower of ribbon"! :0)

Nice double use of a space.  What do you all think of her organization skills?

Wow...I actually wouldnt mind doing laundry if I had that room. lol Love the craft area too...I have those little tin containers but never thought of using them on a magnetic piece. (thanks for the space saving tip). Great job!

I am in love with this room!!!! I WISH WISH WISH that I had a laundry room... but, no such luck. But I would love to make-over the laundry corner of my garage someday. Something about a gorgeous laundry room makes doing yucky laundry not so bad. :) Great job!

Wow...totally jealous!! We share my craft area in our Master bedroom...would love my own space!!

That room is amazing...I never thought I would say this, but I need a bigger laundry room!

I LOVE IT!! I have been so discouraged with my tiny laundry room that desperately needs a makeover. This gives me hope and makes me so excited to get started. More pictures please!

omg I just came across this project of yours (laundry room/craft room). I just love it. I have a lundry room, bed room and a door to the outside, all in one, and I just don't know what to do with it. Our son moved back home and this is the only place to put him :( if you happen to have any ideas please let me know. You did such a great/wonderful job with your room.
