Laundry Room Redo

When we moved into our new home, our laundry room was very basic: wire racks and no real cabinets or shelves. I decided that the laundry room was the perfect place to build my DIY confidence because it was just a laundry room. My husband had faith that I could pull it off.

I learned that big intimidating projects are much easier when you break them down into stages. I knew I wanted storage for laundry baskets and a place for my vacuum cleaner. Those measurements were the start of my plan. Sketching everything out and having a clear plan before you start will save you some heartache, but you have to be flexible when something doesn't quite go as planned (something wont go as planned). In my case, I had to find a solution to work around our existing baseboards because I didn't have a tool to easily remove a section without ruining the whole piece.

People have been so impressed with my laundry room that it has given me the confidence boost I need to tackle other projects in our home. Next time, I hope to add a couple tools to my collection. :)
