If you remember, a few months ago I was working on my “laundry closet.” I wanted to get it done before Beckett came, knowing I was going to have to use it to store some of his clothes as well since he doesn’t have a closet. Well, I didn’t get too far. If you read this post you saw I got the washer and dryer stand looking a bit better…….
and thats how it stayed for about another 4 months until one day when I was about 36 weeks pregnant i kicked it in high gear! I had this as my inspiration photo….
and went to town.
Our laundry is in our bedroom and hides behind a set of double doors.
So here is the original before….
We added the Ikea pendant first.
Then I started going to town with the old barn wood we pulled out of the man cave. My first thought was to frame out my cheap full length mirror I had hanging on the back side of the door.
I just screwed screws right into the door and as close to the mirror as I could get.
Free for nothing and adds a lot of texture. Then I used the same barn wood to make an ironing board holder.
I got the hooks from menards for around $3 a piece.
Again I just drilled the hooks into the wood and screwed the board into the door.
The cover came from West Elm and was a splurge at $19 :) But seriously, how can you resist when it flows so well…
I wasnt quite done with the barn wood yet. I decided to use some like board and batten in the closet.
the ceilings slant in here so it helped divide the ceiling line. A girl could have had a lot of fun and planked it or subway tiled it, but 1.) This was free, and 2.) I was 36 weeks preggers, Oh, and 3.) Its just a closet:)
With the slanted ceilings I had to get creative with the clothes storage, so I added a hanging rack. We had the bar in the shed, I always have rope, and luckily I had a few hooks hanging around.
it’s just perfect for his little clothes:)
add in the accessories…
and this project is complete!
Oh, I almost forgot that I also bought the wire track system from ikea for $15 to hang curtains. I dont ever close them but they hide the plumbing and garbage can I hide behind there:)
not to mention they add another layer of texture. Ryan LOVES them. wink wink
