Laundry Room Organizer
My laundry room was getting very cluttered with brooms and mops.
I decided to make something behind the door they could hang on.
I am a big fan of things up and off the floor. It makes me feel like the room is cleaner somehow.
This is what it did look like…
Pretty messy, huh??
So, I sent my husband to Lowes to buy a peg board. I roughly measured behind the door to get an idea of how big I needed. He had them cut to my measurements so he didn’t have to do it when he got home.
I already bought 2 yards of fabric from Hobby Lobby, which was a little more than I needed. You would only need to buy for however big your project is. My board is 70″ x 35″.
This is it really. ( Ignore the stain, apparently I had something on my countertop where I laid my fabric. Since I knew it was going to get covered up I didn’t bother with washing it).
I did want it to look a little prettier so, I had some of these trimming boards I bought at Michaels for another idea, but didn’t use.
I painted them white and then sprayed painted glitter on top. Everyone needs a little glitter in their life! They are around $2.50 each and I needed 6. I didn’t attach them yet though.
So, if you want to go a cheaper route, I would buy some furring strips at Lowes and cut, nail, and piece together to make a frame.
Next step was to hang my board. You need to make sure you have enough space between the wall and your board for the peg hooks. Again, if you made a frame you could have mounted to the back and had enough room, but since I had to be difficult and use what I had, I found some shims and glued 2 together to make it even, then glued a few around the backside.
Had my hubby hang it. I glued the trim pieces on after it was hung, you can do it either way.
Then, I added little wood flowers in the corners to cover up my boards that I did not cut at an angle because that would have been more work. I got these little flowers where I had got the trim at Michaels. The bag was around $1.50 for 4. I painted them a blue and called it done.
Lastly, for the hooks, I just used regular peg board hooks. So, wherever I wanted to put them I just snipped the spot over the hole with a scissors and inserted the hook.
And, now my laundry room “appears” cleaner to me…
What do you think? Will you make one?
