Glam Laundry Room Makeover - for Under $300

Our laundry room was in a sad state. Not only did it seriously lack style, it had zero functionality. It's a tiny room - (6 ft. x 8ft.) - stuck between the kitchen and garage. The two doors took up all of the wall space, and made the flow of the tiny room even more difficult. Also, things were always falling behind the washer and dryer, and I'd have to perform all sorts of contortions to try to rescue stray clothing! There was no where to air dry clothing, which is a real problem if you own as many sweaters as I do!
Because this room is visible from our newly renovated kitchen, it was definitely time for a change!
The unfortunate before...
We started with this plan:
And after 6 weeks, our finished laundry room looks like this:
We gave the room a facelift, with a fresh coat of paint on the walls, navy cabinetry, antique brass hardware and a brushed nickel Fasade backsplash.

We also added some functionality: slide out drying racks, a faux-marble counter for folding clothes, a great laundry organization system and improved storage. Customized laundry bags make sorting and transferring laundry a quick and painless process.
