Budget Friendly Laundry Room Refresh with Home Depot

This past month we were given the opportunity to partner with Home Depot to tackle a project we had on our to do list. The theme of the project was to do with storage and organization and what better room to get organized than our laundry room. So a laundry room refresh it was! Making over our laundry room has been on my wish list since we moved into our place. I’m pretty sure every time one of these projects comes our way Ev rolls his eyes because while I sign us up for them and dream them up, he’s doing 90% of the work. Even as we took the pictures of the finished project I was thinking to myself, why am I the one in them? He did it all, but alas I will be the one spending countless hours folding, ironing and sorting in our newly refreshed laundry room so I guess its fair!

The goal of the project was to try and keep it as close to budget as possible but of course as projects would go we went over, but not terribly over. It was all the little things that I didn’t really take into account for, cabinet mounting hardware, new paint roller, things like that that put us over. Isn’t that how it always is? At the end of the day we kept the project under $400, which I think is awesome once you see the before and the afters of our project!

So without further ado, here is our before picture of the laundry room:

Laundry Room Refresh

Coming from a townhouse with literally a laundry closet before that held a stacking set and nothing more, having an actual room was a dream come true. But what our room lacked was storage. We had plenty of space but nothing more than one wire shelf. And while my laundry room is dark and windowless I had preferred our layout to the option with the window as that meant even less storage opportunities. 

The plan for our laundry room refresh was simple. A new coat of paint, covering my least favourite colour ever, boring beige as I call it. A counter top above the appliances for folding space and to hold my jars of detergent. Lastly cabinets and shelves above for extra storage space and to keep things out of sight, out of mind. It just looks so much neater when you can’t see whats hidden within in, in my opinion. 

To keep things super budget friendly we opted to build our own counter top and stain it. Kind of giving it that rustic farm house feel and tying it in to other aspects of the house. We also purchased super basic kitchen cabinets for storage. For the paint we went with a creamy white, using the same colour we had painted Ryersons room and it’s amazing how much brighter it is now. 

The changes are simple and small but it makes the room look so much different now and 100 times nicer in my opinion. Now that this project is complete its time to dream up the next! 😛

Ps because my laundry room is windowless and dark these photos are tad bit on the grainy side and remind me of film, you know how we took pictures back in the day, ha! And I kinda like them 🙂
