Organization Love: The Laundry Room
Spring is in the air! It's the perfect time of year to premier our creative organizing series called "Organization Love". Today we are going to do some dirty work, right down in the laundry room. The goal is to get it inspired and organized in this very frequented room in everybody's house. I rounded up some inspirational ideas on how you can get started!
I was very inspired by this charming little laundry room by Dottie Angel. I just adore her fresh painted upcycled wash sink. Those handmade upcycled nylon table cloth curtains are the perfect quick fix to hide that unseemly clutter that easily builds up in that laundry area.
Can't find all your socks? Well, this cutie from the Etsy shop Inspired Trading Co. has got you covered! This is just about the cutest lost and found, I have every seen.
It's true, everything cleans up well when using cute kitchy containers. I adore this cloakroom styling by Torie Jayne below!
Don't forget to check those pockets for loose change before you toss in your next load of laundry! Here is a great DIY. tutorial from Burton Avenue Blog on how to make this charming change catcher with scrap wood, vinyl lettering, a metal pipe clamp and a small mason jar.
Personally, I am a girl with a lot of fabric scraps. Naturally, I couldn't help falling in love with these patch worked baskets by Contanca Cabral. They are perfect for storing that dirty laundry!
I am always amazed when I open up a clean organized closet! It's usually not mine, but here is some inspiration on how to get there by Dabble in Chic.
My final note is inspired by this last picture of the extremely organized closet. I recently received something worth shouting over the rooftops about. It was an awesome compact powerhouse of a vacuum called the Shark "Rocket". I am in love with it! This handy dandy little bugger has zipped around my bohemian pad and has gotten the dirty job done. This dirty job does involve a constant flow of spilled pellets from my only heat source (the pellet stove) and endless dust from our dry Colorado climate (along with the wood pellets I use for the stove). I am very pleased with this little vacuum. I didn't think it would suck up those fallen wood pellets, but it sure did! It also easily hangs on the wall for compact storage in a small space like mine. You can pick one up on QVC with all the fancy attachments, like I have. I am a big fan! This QVC version is only $164.80, instead of the normal retail price of $240 elsewhere with all those extra goodies.
I hope you are inspired to do some creative organizing in the laundry room!
