So on Ellen the other day, she gave a family my couch! Well, not the one I own, but one just like it!!
If you're wondering about it, it's the Linden Street Friday sofa from JCPenney. Yep, who would think to look for their couch at JCPenney? Well, me. It's listed on JCPenney's website for almost $2000 right now, which is crazy..... I definitely didn't spend that much when I bought mine.
Here's what the house looked like yesterday when I was washing the slipcovers:
And myself cutting out all those pieces of foam board.....
And on to what this post is really about. The laundry room/pantry.
It had bland beginnings.
Then I painted it Apple Green.
Now, for the actual update.
I used Jen from I Heart Organizing's idea of covering wire shelves with foam board. I have always been so annoyed by these wire shelves. Things were always tipping over or falling through and it was so frustrating. Like Jen, I covered the foam board with contact paper.
It's so much easier to store things on the shelves now!! No more tipping over.
And here's a shot of the other side of the laundry room.
I added a 'counter' to the top of my laundry machines by just painting a piece of plywood. Afterward I sprayed it with a clear gloss spray so that it would be smoother. I put down some of that grippy shelf liner so that the counter would stay in place. It's been awesome, but I still want to do something that will cover up the stuff in the back.
View from the garage. This is the door I come in when I get home.
Close up of the contact paper. Sometimes it can be unwieldy!
You can see my lint holder and cleaning rag bucket. :)
