On Tuesday, I hopefully inspired you with some pictures of luxurious laundry rooms. Today, I am going to give you some fabulous DIY and organization projects that you can easily get done over the weekend and still have plenty of time to relax.
The first project is a washer and dryer pedestal like the one pictured below. This is a fantastic way to get those pesky laundry baskets out from under our feet and all over the house as well as to keep it easy and organized to start a load or two, not to mention raising the machines to make it easier on the back!

You can get the shopping list and detailed instructions to make this wonderful pedestal here.
This “Drying Rack” (a painted ladder) gives you so much space and saves you from throwing your clothes over the top of the door to dry!

So simple right? Just paint an old wooden ladder, attach chains to it and the ceiling and voila….a perfect place to dry your delicate attire!
Or you can add a simple closet rod from wall to cabinet like this one.
A effortless shelf mounted above your machines will create the space you need for all of your detergents and miscellaneous items at an arms reach…and what a beautiful wall color against the white cabinetry!

These perfect little baskets with mini chalkboards on them (which can be made with small pieces of wood and chalkboard paint) are great for those items that you need on hand for whenever they are needed.

For those of us that keep all of our cleaning supplies in the laundry room, here is a great way to keep them organized and easy to find.

These “towel rods” and hooks can be found at Ikea…simple!
I hope that these simple little projects will motivate you to get up and get organized and make some more space for yourself. I know what I am going to be doing this weekend and I cannot wait!
Make it a great day,
