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
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!

Nice job, it looks so pretty.
Where was the handy man when you did the tear down?? Great job!
How did you attach the bar to the shelf and what did you attach it to on the other side?
Is the hanging rod just for decor? I need to have a rod to hold all the clothes that come out of the dryer and go on a hanger.
