DIY Home Ideas Pottery Barn inspired laundry drying rack

Julie at Sawdust Girl has been blessed with a man who loves to do some laundry – and is quite good at it too! So it wasn’t too odd that Julie built him a drying rack as a gift. Julie actually had bit the bullet and ordered a $100 rack from Pottery Barn, but after […Read More]

Built-In Laundry Cabinet

When Tricia from The Little Cottage on the Pond moved into her new house, the small, empty laundry room was hardly an inviting space. A set of cabinets from Pottery Barn sparked her desire to create a room where she could actually be excited about doing laundry. (Hard to imagine, huh?) Tricia’s husband scaled down the plans for Pottery Barn’s cabinet and recreated their vintage style with inexpensive plywood. Don’t let the charming exterior deceive you… this cabinet is all business on the inside, providing tons of storage for cleaning supplies, mops, brooms, and even a vacuum!

Rolling Wire Hamper

Bridgett from Osie Moats is not a fan of plastic laundry baskets since they usually end up broken after being used as stools by her boys. Ever since adding shelving to her bathroom, Bridgett knew she wanted a cottage-inspired laundry basket to fill the space below. However, she wasn’t about the drop a wad of cash on something that would be housing dirty, stinky clothes from three boys. Instead Bridgett gathered several items she already had to create a rustic laundry basket that fits her space to perfection – in both size and design!

Here’s a blast from the past from one of my fave repurposing gurus around, Gail of My Repurposed Life. Gail turned an old crib rail into a laundry drying rack like Ballard’s ever- popular wall-mounted racks. Of course it wouldn’t escape Gail’s notice that those crib rungs are perfectly suited for their new life!

Laundry Detergent Canister

After spying a styling laundry detergent canister from Ballard, Char from Crap I’ve Made headed to the Army Navy Surplus store for a canister of her own. Sure, it wasn’t nearly as cute as the catalog version, but that’s nothing a can of spray paint couldn’t fix! With some vinyl lettering, the transformation was complete… […Read More]

Wood Drying Rack

I know Laura from Inspiration for Moms is not the only one who has longed for one of Ballard’s beautiful and functional drying racks. With her laundry room newly redesigned, Laura took the plunge into building one that actually fit her budget. Being the considerate gal she is, Laura shares her plans so fellow lovers […Read More]

Pull-Down Laundry Drying Rack

Kate from Centsational Girl created her own laundry room drying rack for hanging delicate clothing and other personal items that will remain nameless (wink, wink). This really is a must-have item for a laundry room. Not only is it more stylish than a freestanding drying rack, but it also takes up way less space. I […Read More]

Laundry Definition Wall Sign

Last fall, I shared this definition sign I created for my new upstairs laundry room over at my other blog Infarrantly Creative. I had everything on hand except for the screws, so this project cost me a whopping dollar to make. That’s just slightly less expensive than the $129.00 price tag of my inspiration. (I’m […Read More]
