You may remember my laundry room makeover from last year, which turned out great, but there were a few things that were still bothering me. For example…
It was driving me nuts that I only had 3 baskets on top, when clearly I had room for four. What was I thinking? Why did I only buy 3???
Another thing that was driving me nut-zo was how dark everything looked with all the baskets. I love the baskets on the top but I started thinking the ones on the bottom were a little too much. I also didn’t like having my bleach and my tool organizer sitting out, I think it looks messy.
The last thing that was driving me a little crazy, was the bare window. I just needed something, it was too plain.
So when Wayfair contacted me and asked me if I wanted to be a part of their DIY challenge I quickly said “YES!”. I was given three items to select from, and I chose the simple, white pendant light, for my DIY project. I thought the pendant light would look great in my laundry room, and I knew it would give me the extra motivation I needed to finish my project.
When I received the pendant light I loved how clean and simple it was.
Not wanting to change it too much, I purchased some “diamond” studded ribbon at JoAnn’s, to give it a little extra sparkle. Using a hot glue gun I glued the ribbon all around the base of the light.
When I was done with the light I had my husband remove the ugly light that was originally in the laundry room. I was SO GLAD to see it go, it was U-G-L-Y!!!
I made a few other tweaks in the laundry room and here’s what it looks like now:
I love the labels on the baskets above the cupboards, and I think the room looks so much brighter now that the shelf above the washer/dryer has been cleaned off!
Oh, and don’t forget about the window! A friend of mine helped me make these faux Roman shades for the window and I love them!
I also bought a new rug, from overstock.com, for the floor. This one is much warmer and I think it fits the room better than the plain white one I used to have.
Of course the star of the laundry room in my new Wayfair light! I think the silver detail around the edge and the ceiling medallion give it just the right touch.
Now my laundry room is organized AND cute! I’m always amazed at the difference a little “tweaking” can make!
