laundry closet remodel

Slowly but surely, we’ve been making progress on this little laundry closet of ours.  What started out as a basic, boring closet is almost complete, and I can’t wait for it to be finished!  To those of you who don’t remember, this is what we started with:
In in this previous post, I talked about the steps we took to get it to this point:

So, for the past year or so, our laundry closet has looked like the image above.  No storage, no hanging space, nothing.  Not exactly ideal.

The plan was to hang these Ikea cabinets in the laundry closet once I painted them, and then install a bar underneath for hanging clothes, but I realized the cabinets were too large for anything to hang under them.  So, I started looking for other shelving alternatives.

I finally found three shelves I liked, but the middle one was too wide to fit in the closet.  I didn’t think this would be a big issue as I could just trim it down, I just had to actually do it.  As a result, the shelves sat in the hallway, and continued to sit in the hallway, until one night, I just got sick of it.  Noel and I went to work and installed two of the three shelves, and made a makeshift hanging space for the time being.

Don’t you just love how our hanging bar is haphazardly stretched across the top of the shelves? Eventually, it will be installed under the middle shelf.
Below is the middle shelf that we need to trim down.  It’s probably a third as tall as the other two shelves, which will allow us ample space for hanging clothes to dry beneath it.

And a little sneak peak at some of the gorgeous accessories that will bring life to the lovely little space.  Now all we need are some labels and we will be in action.

As for other exciting news in this house: we installed the pendant lights in the kitchen this past weekend!  Pictures and a tutorial will be heading your way on Friday…so stay tuned!

  1. It looks great! I love that color on the walls, very peaceful.

    Our laundry closet it such a nightmare that it’s not even on my radar yet. Ugh. We’re talking an unfinished nook in the basement with a bunch of pipes and a too-small cabinet from the 70s.

    Those jars looks fancy. Are they made of glass or plastic?

    This looks so good! I wish we could do something like this with our laundry closet to make it more practical, but we’re in a rental. Someday!!!
