My First Pinterest Challenge: A Laundry Closet Makeover

I’ll let you in on a secret of mine.

I’m addicted to Pinterest.  At first I couldn’t understand the hype of Pinterest but oh boy, now I do.  I’ve made a few quick and easy recipes from Pinterest and got lots of new ideas for my home. First challenge — A new laundry closet!

To me, laundry is something that is never done.  You think you wash your last load and then you glance at the hamper and boom, there it is — more laundry. Like many homes, my washer and dryer was down in the basement. I hated to do laundry because it was damp, smelly and too darn cold to do laundry or anything else for that matter.

I was ecstatic to know that my husband planned to move the washer and dryer upstairs when the kitchen was expanded several years ago.

Fast forward years later, my kitchen still needs work. My talented husband built a laundry closet right in our kitchen and for several years it has been a catch-all closet.  So you can imagine the mess in there.

Lately I’ve been on Pinterest (who hasn’t?) looking for ideas on how to organize my messy closet and I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this laundry closet. It looked exactly like mine only a thousand times better and cleaner!

I won’t do a before until I have the after done and ready for show because you guessed it, it’s THAT bad.

So off I go to find some cute bins and boxes to organized my chaotic laundry closet.

Here’s the closet with the doors closed. Next will be the before and after shots! Wish me luck! I’m gonna need it!
