{ Adding a little pretty to a laundry closet! }

I added a few minor touches to my laundry closet to "pretty it up" a bit. I don't have a laundry room but I do have a laundry closet, and I've been wanting to do a few things for a while now. Finally, I found the time.
I added the word "wash" to the doors - printed right off my computer, cut out with an exacto, and sealed on. Just for fun. I was somewhat inspired by Linda at Restyled Home, her laundry room says "wet" over it (and her laundry area is also far superior to mine still!)
I also replaced the horrid gold ball pulls with pretty ceramic white roses on the doors.

My detergent and Oxiclean go in pretty glass jars. I'm not big on the cardboard boxes they come in. I used the labels from Vintage Glam Wedding and this font to label them in a pretty fashion.

When I clean and organize a closet, I like to get it to a state in which I wouldn't be embarrassed for a guest to stumble upon it. So it's nice to keep areas like this tidy.

Martha's stain removal chart is at hand and ready to help when help is needed.

Finally, a $5 iron holder from Walmart helps keep things in order.


  1. I just love a laundry room makeover. I can't get enough of them. Looks really great!

  2. I have been blog stalking you, and have added you to my inspiring sidebar. I hope you don't mind, but you have fabulous ideas. I too am a lover of old, and i like to mix them in with new. You are so creative, I love it.

  3. Thanks Hanna! Where is your blog? I'd love to see it!
