Joining the Procrastinator's Party

Woo hoo! I'm joining in with the Inspired Room Procrastinator's Party and proclaiming that I will redo my laundry room. Below you can see some before pictures. Truth is that I didn't remember to take the pictures until I had already cleaned out the room.


There is usually a laundry basket sitting on the dryer, clothes folded on the counter, other junk, and the ironing board is usually set up in the 5" of floor space.

I iron my clothes. Do you? This is a habit I've decided to try and curb. If I can break myself of ironing all the time then I won't have to have that 5" of floor space taken up.

This is the plan: paint, hang chandelier, replace knobs, remake picture memory board, some sort of rack for hanging clothes, and a rack to hang ironing board on. Also need to add some cute things in there that just make the room more fun.

How much have I procrastinated about this room? I think I talked about this a year ago! It's so embarassing. So here we go! Go visit The Inspired Room and join in too. :) Come back here on October 20th to see the final product.

Stacey, I can't wait to see what you do with your laundry room. I know it's going to be great!

You've inspired me to write a post about my laundry room makeover I did a while back.

I'll be back on the 20th to see yours (if not before)!

April said...

I am such a procrastinator, especially when it comes to major projects. You have a great laundry room, Stacey, and I see all sorts of possibilities. I can hardly wait to see what you do with it!

Laura said...

OK Miss Stacey-
This is very inspiring-
I think I will think about (procrastinate) a little longer on what I need to do!

This is a good post and it will be an incentive! I am all moved in to my condo and now I already need to declutter! Do we have a declutter day? heehee!

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Stacey, thanks for stopping by and yes, I do know that my blog is loading slowly. I am trying to figure out what is going on with it & haven't yet. Thanks for letting me know, I was afraid everyone else was experiencing it too!

southerninspiration said...

Ooooh, I am envious of that counter you have....my laundry room is a mess....with a washer, dryer, freezer, dog bed AND a dog crate....I need to double its size!!!!LOL!
Looking forward to seeing your re-do!

Hi Stacey,
I can't wait to see how your laundry room turns out! I have a laundry room that has looked the same for the last 10 years and I am looking for some inspiration. Good luck on the project!! See you on the 20th.

Shelia said...

HI Stacey! Oh, can't wait to see what you do with your laundry room! You've got some great ideas.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Just a little something from Judy said...

I am excited about sharing in another one of your redecorating projects. I know that you think if you commit to this project in the blogging world...then we will all hold you to it. You are right my friend! Carry on.

Darlene said...

I can't wait to see your re-do on your laundry room. I bet it will be fabulous!

The Crazy Suburban Mom said...

You're making me ALMOST want to take a picture of mine.. almost!

Lisa said...

How exciting Stacey! I can't wait to see the final results!

Melissa Miller said...

Stacey what great ideas you have for the laundry room! I'm so envious of you having an actual room for laundry. All we have is a pass through area with the W/D. It's definitely on my wish list for our next house. I can't wait to see what you do!

Do I iron clothes? LOL! Not...:)

Twyla and Lindsey said...

No, I don't iron. When I need to iron something, I usually can't find my iron:( I think your laundry room looks great already. I know you'll make it pretty. Twyla

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Stacey, I have really cut down on my ironing in the last several years. I really look forward to seeing the finished product. Good for you!

Looking so forward to seeing the finished product! I've seen so many adorable laundry rooms in blogerville!....

Blessings,

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

You iron? Not me! Well, only when I have to. I avoid it like the plague! :-)

Your laundry room has a great foundation to work with so I cannot wait to see how you pretty it up!

Have fun!

I can't wait to see this laundry room redo. I wish I had one to redo. My washer/dryer sits in an ugly unfinished basement. -Jackie

Gretchen said...

Stacey,

I still iron too. I find it really relaxing. Am I crazy or what? I iron in my guest room where I sew and can watch TV, while I'm doing it. I only have a laundry closet but Mr. Bird Nest redid it last winter with beadboard, shelves, etc. At least it's pretty when I go there.

Susie from Bienvenue said...

I think I need a laundy room just like yours!

Brenda said...

Nope, don't iron my clothes. Of course I would not consider myself a "sharp" dresser! I'm more a shorts and tee shirts gal! Comfort reigns!

Amy said...

I can't wait to see the final outcome. I too need to decorate my laundry room. I don;t have a window in it so I really don't like it!

Jayne said...

You can do it! We'll all be back to visit on October 20!

Hi there ... I live in the state of Oregon and have been here four years. Six states prior to Oregon, believe it or not! Oregon where I live, in the high desert, is beautiful beyond words.

Tracy said...

Oh Stacey, I can't wait to see it!!! What fun!

Together We Save said...

Sounds like lots of work but fun. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Angie said...

I can't wait to see what all you do in your laundry room! Looks like great space compared to mine. Oh, and I am with you on loving wallpaper. I look at it all the time on the American Blinds and Wallpaper site. I have thought about putting some in my foyer and laundry room. Kinda scary though to commit to it!

Carol said...

I'm looking forward to seeing your laundry room redo, I know it will be awesome!

Shannon @ Silver Trappings said...

Oooh, can't wait to see it. My laundry room needs some major help, too!!

Cynthia @An Accomplished Woman said...

Oh Stacey, I can't wait to see the progress. It sounds like it will be very fabulous. Way to fancy for laundry!!!

Amber said...

I think it looks great already! I'll definitely need to come back and see what else you do!

Stacey, LOVE the idea of a crystal chandy in the laundry room! Look forward to seeing how it all transforms! Good Luck!

I hope your project is going well! Look forward to seeing the results!

And kudos on the ironing! I sadly have resorted to Downy spray-on wrinkle releaser. :-)

Lovely blog!
