    • Before: Bland Laundry Room

      This laundry room had a decent amount of space and great natural light but lacked personality and order. The boring room was in desperate need of a helping hand. A shot of color and plan for organizing laundry supplies will give this room a new look and purpose.

    • Bright Ideas

      With a fresh coat of bright green paint, fun fabrics, and a plan to declutter, this laundry room was transformed into a cheerful space. For a lighthearted approach to the chores done in this room, oversize laundry icons decorate the room. This creative design took the laundry room from bland to grand using a few thrifty solutions.

    • Design-Your-Own Fabrics

      This homeowner wanted to cheer up her laundry room with whimsical laundry-theme fabrics. She created two patterns, one for window treatments and a second for a cabinet skirt, at spoonflower.com. Do-it-yourself artwork adds flair to walls, while colorful boxes hold laundry essentials and add to the room's color scheme.

    • Out to Dry

      Below the window, a wall-mount drying rack is a great solution for a small space. Colorful clothespins hold garments in place and add to the room's color scheme.

    • Grab & Go Cleaning Supplies

      Use a basket as a portable cleaning carryall. Line the basket with colorful crafts foam, fill it with all your cleaning needs, and use the handle to tote it from room to room.

    • Instructional Wall Art

      The homeowner fell in love with these pen-and-ink ladies she discovered in a 1961 Better Homes and Gardens Sewing Book, so she turned the vintage illustrations into artwork. Perk up a plain wall with easy-to-make artwork. You can make this simple artwork by downloading these vintage illustrations and displaying them in your own brightly painted frames.

    • Easy DIY Art Project

      Give the laundry room personality with great accents, including three-dimensional artwork. Cut an image from a vintage book or advertisement and glue it to the front of a shadow box. Line the inside of the box with pretty fabric or paper that coordinates with your room.

    • Walls That Wow

      For big bang without big bucks, create a bold accent wall using repositionable adhesive-back paper cut in a fun pattern. Here, a modern take on clothespins adds a whimsical touch to the laundry room. The treatment works best when the adhesives are applied over flat, fully cured paint.

    • Blank Canvas

      Match-and-stash silhouettes ensure no one will misplace important items. Trace the shapes onto the back of repositionable adhesive-back paper. Cut out the shapes and apply them to the wall. Paint over the adhesive-back paper and remove the pieces before the paint is fully dry. Spray-paint a wall-mounted planter to coordinate with the space and use it for at-hand clothespin storage. Make over your ironing board to match the decor by spray-painting the legs and covering the top with fabric. Hot-glue the fabric in place.

      Box Set

      Store laundry supplies in attractive containers, such as these basic boxes that are covered with patterned paper and protected with a layer of clear adhesive-back paper. Make your own labels by spray-painting small inexpensive photo frames. Fill the frames with a description of what's stored in each box, then hot-glue the frames in place.

      Read All About It

      The key to organization is finding a place for everything and keeping everything in its place. Corral small items in decorative dishware. Keep everything organized by adding colorful labels. Painted clothespins attach to the dishware to display the labels.

      Creative Containers

      Keep small items tidy in attractive containers, such as these compotes and boxes designed for the kitchen. Use scrapbooking supplies to make your own labels. Cover the front of the labels with clear contact paper to waterproof them. Finish by securing the labels to the containers with spray adhesive.

      Sort It Out

      Make the most of a tiny linen closet by using it as an organized sorting station. Remove the closet door, fill any holes with wood putty, and paint the molding to match the space. Turn the once-awkward space into a savvy storage solution by placing a sturdy bucket on each shelf. Fun labels, attached to each basket with colorful clothespins, add color and order to the room.
