Laundry Room Makeover and a Giveaway!

Laundry Room Makeover and a Giveaway! @EclecticEveryday

Today I wanted to share with you one of my latest projects, my laundry room. I’ve always wanted a cute little sunshine filled yellow laundry room, and was so happy when we first moves in our home, because the laundry room was in fact yellow! But all that joy faded in a few weeks because it wasn’t quite the right shade of yellow. I can’t explain it, and you can’t really tell from the picture below, but it was more of a nursery yellow than a bright sunny yellow. It was just unnerving me, so I had to re-paint.

After I gave everything a fresh coat of brighter, happier yellow paint, we made a few more changes. I added some granite where there was a Formica counter before in the corner. The tile was also changed when we did the tile in the kitchen. And I also added a much needed laundry sorter. I got this one at Target and love it!

I know alot of people get rid of their in-wall ironing boards, but I love mine. I guess I’m old-fashioned that way. To modernize it a bit , I added this pretty stripped ironing board cover. I think it kind of makes it resemble a surfboard, don’t you think?

And over in the corner, we added a deep freeze. This laundry room must have been designed for a deep freeze, because it fits just so perfect. I love being able to freeze make-ahead meals, food that I buy in bulk and other items too big to fit in my refrigerator’s freezer.

For the wall art, I just shopped around my house and brought in the two silver framed photos and silver mirror to match the cabinet hardware. I also picked up these two cute wall hangings for the room. I think they both came from Marshall’s.

My husband got a kick out of this one, but he still doesn’t do laundry.

Laundry Room Makeover and a Giveaway! @EclecticEveryday

I’m in here everyday, doing at least one load of laundry. My family is pretty dirty. My husband does lots of things around the house, including working on the cars, so he gets really dirty. And between my giant stinky Labrador Coco and my active little boy, it’s a smelly, dog-hair filled mess.

To get out all those stains and smells, I depend on Arm and Hammer laundry detergent. It whitens socks, towels and sheets just as well as bleach without breaking down fibers. And this stuff is concentrated, so a little goes a long way.

It also works in both HE, which I have, and regular washing machines. It smells great too!

Source List:

  • Yellow Paint: Benjamin Moore Weston Flax
  • White Trim: Sherwin Williams Alabaster
  • Laundry Sorter: Target
  • Freezer: Lowe’s
  • Washer and Dryer are Samsung, but I recommend Whirlpool. The repairman told us he can’t get parts anymore and they are only a few years old.

    Baking soda is my miracle cure for the painful canker sores I sometimes get on the sides of my tongue. The pain used to be so bad that I could hardly talk or swallow for days when I’d get a canker sore. Then, thankfully, I read somewhere that scrubbing the sores with baking soda can help ease the pain and make them heal more quickly. It worked even better than I expected, and now, if I even feel the beginning of one coming on, I scrub it with baking soda right away and it keeps it from even developing.

    I use Arm & Hammer baking soda for what seems like a million different things around the house, but this one tip is something I can honestly say has been life-changing for me.

    My best baking soda tip is to use a spoonful in some warm water and put your hair brushes and combs in it to help get all the icky hair products off of them!

    I love my white Harley-Davidson, but can’t take the chance of ruining the graphics, so when I got a stain on it, or any white clothing, I squirt a little downy, liberally apply baking soda, get it into the stain good, let it sit for a few hours, then wash.
