If you have a "galley" style laundry room that's just a pass through to your garage, it can still be stylish and functional! We turned our tiny, dysfunctional laundry room (which is really just a pass-through to our garage) into a beautiful and functional space!
Time: 1 Months Cost: $800 Difficulty: Medium

BEFORE: both appliances on pedestals. We removed those and opted to put them directly on the floor.
BEFORE: Our laundry room was a cluttered pass-through to the garage
First we had to remove the appliances, then we cleaned the the dryer vent using a leaf blower (it works!) and finished installing the Pergo Outlast+ in the color Molasses Maple.
We finished the Pergo Outlast+ Flooring in Molasses Maple. The appliances were brought in last.
Create this over-the-door valet to hang dry clothes without drying. We can teach you how in jsut a few simple steps.
Build custom cabinets like these. The "scratch and dent" section of Ikea is where we sourced these cabinet doors for $4 each We built our own cavity, added trim. Then painted with Heirloom Traditions Paint in Heritage Collection "Iron Gate"
Create this thick-looking folding platform to sit on top of your appliances. This was made with 3/4" plywood with a trim piece on the front to make it look like thick butcher block. $35 oak plywood countertop stained with Early American from Varathane. We can help!
Glass knobs from Hobby Lobby.
White towels from Target. Tobacco Basket from Hobby Lobby. Under cabinet lighting also from Ikea.
