The Linen Closet Before
The Laundry Nook Before
I told you they were big problem areas! (And my husband is abhorred that I posted before pics...but it's reality!) The linen closet is tiny and therefore it easily gets out of hand. And the laundry nook (sounds so much better than laundry closet, don't you think?) is quite small as well. Someday I will have a huge linen closet and a laundry room! Someday. Til then, a little organization can go a long way!
The Linen Closet After
This project was completely free! The blue bins were left over from my son's nursery and the white baskets were there before. On the top shelf we have a first aid kit and extras for the bathroom like soap, bubble bath, lotion, etc. The next shelf is a bin full of washcloths and a bin full of hand towels. The next 2 shelves are towels. And in the bottom we have an extra comforter, extra bath mat, and a bin of sheets.
The Laundry Nook After
Baskets: All of the baskets came from Home Goods for a total of $38. They hold paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning products, laundry essentials, etc. The one on top of the dryer is full of things I use constantly: laundry detergent, dryer sheets, spray Oxi-clean (can't live without it with a messy son), linen spray (makes fresh sheets smell so good), Meyer's all purpose wipes (awesome for quick bathroom clean ups), Swiffer dusting spray (love this stuff), etc.
Lamp: The lamp was repurposed from elsewhere in the house. It got a new shade from Target for $9.99.
Ironing Board Cover: We needed a new one, and it's funny how replacing something like that gives you such a fresh feeling! Found it at Home Goods for $9.99.
Ironing Caddy: I knew I wanted to get the ironing board onto the wall and came across this wall caddy at Target for $9.99. I love that it houses the iron and starch as well!
I'd like to add a cute laundry sign above the baskets, so I'll have my eye out. Let me know if you know of any!
Are you an organizer? What area of your home could use an overhaul? My kitchen "junk" drawers are next!
