Budget Laundry Room Makeover
My laundry room is cute but I had some storage and functionality needs that I thought could be improved so I set out to make over my laundry room on a budget!
First I had to rip out the existing built-ins in my laundry room because I wanted cabinetry instead of open storage
I had some drywall repair to do before I could install new cabinets
The easiest way to transform a room is paint! I gave myself a blank slate by painting the laundry room white
Give yourself a hand
Since I was installing these cabinets by myself I added a 2 x 4 to act as a ledge or second hand to set the cabinets on while I screwed it into my studs
Instead of building cabinets I thought these unfinished ones from Lowe’s were super affordable and convenient
I screwed the back of the cabinets directly into my wall studs
For a more professional and finished look caulk where the cabinets meet the wall
Since these cabinets are unfinished you will likely want to paint or stain
I used these peel and stick subway tiles from TicTac tiles to create a really cool, easy, and affordable accent wall
Are used a 2 x 4 and 1 x 4 on L brackets to create this shelf to hide my utility outlets
Finally I built this little tower shelf out of scrap wood to go between my washer and dryer. I wanted to use every bit of space!
