Laundry Room Budget Makeover!

 I wanted to share my mini-makeover in my laundry room.....done on a budget! I've been adding to it over the past few months and it still isn't finished, but I'm enjoying adding to it as I can. We still have to finish our new broom closet that used to house a furnace, put bead board on the walls, and I really want a new washer and dryer, but I don't know when that will happen!

So, I'll show you what I have done...:) First up is an overall picture....I'm loving the color scheme!
The bins up on the top shelf were the first thing I added. They are left over from one of my classroom color schemes and I no longer needed them at school. I added clothespins that I covered in pretty paper and cards labeled with what is in each bin. Cost = FREE! Next up is the curtain hanging behind the washer and dryer to hide hoses. It is actually a tablecloth that I found at a yard sale for a whopping $1! It is like new and Waverly brand.....I love the colors and it matches the bins perfectly! I just draped it over a tension shower rod so I can use it for a tablecloth in the future if I want to. Cost = $7! (tension rod & tablecloth)


The dryer holds a lazy Susan that I bought at the Goodwill, a basket that I have had forever that holds dirty dish towels until I wash them, and a little bowl that holds loose change and other items left in pockets. It came from TJ Maxx. Also on the lazy Susan is a large clothespin decoration that I bought at Michaels. I spray painted it to match. Total Cost = $6

Here is the clothespin mirror you can read more about here. I got it at the Goodwill and the clothespins were in my craft stash and left over from first grade where I used them to pull names. Total Cost = $2


This next item was the most expensive part of the room....my new rug. I found it at the Dollar General the other day. The colors are great and match so well! Total Cost = $8 


This little picture caught my eye at the thrift store a few weeks ago. I just loved it! You can see the original color here. Total Cost = $2


This is a close-up of the Waverly tablecloth. It is so pretty.....:)


Grand Total = $25! Not too bad for a cute laundry room! I hope you enjoyed the mini tour. I'll update when I do something else in there...:) 

Just a couple of pictures from my evening walk to leave you with....




and as always.....
