Hi Loves,

I am having difficulties trying to come up with a post today so my husband suggested that I write about my life as a stay at home mom who's hubby works an intense 4 days on and then likes to be  lazy his  4 days off ...... but that will just  turn into a big nagging fest over here at CASA M so I am going to pass on that suggestion...... thanks for the help though baby!

I am in love with laundry rooms right now.... I don't know why but ever since this episode of Sarah 101

Sarah 101 episode 12 Fresh Laundry
I have been dreaming about the perfect laundry room... Storage, counter tops, ironing area, pretty light fixtures. Seriously my list goes on and on.

Sadly my laundry room is only 6x5 So I have to be CRAFTY with my space...

Here are some of my thoughts for the space

 This one is the closet to our laundry room layout and dimensions... I would love to have cabinetry above the washer and dryer.

I like that everything can be hidden behind the cupboard doors.... 
and then a few pretty things on the shelf.  
I love the BLING in  the light fixture because if anywhere needs some sparkle it is definitely the laundry room.

I am really digging the tile in this room, yet again some sparkle and the hanging bar is exactly what we need. ... I am working on taking care of my clothes FINALLY.. does that mean I am officially responsible??


CHECK OUT this fantabulous hanging rack.... GENIUS

That's the layout I am thinking about.. cabinetry above the machines with a shelf underneath and then some type of hanging rack. I think that covers all the necessities

OKAY so here is a photo of what our laundry room looked like last year


And here is the layout now..
  much better 
 I can even fold the clothes on top of the machines right now which is nice.

Don't pay any attention to the very stylish painters tape. I placed tape everywhere I wanted the hubs to place a shelf or a cabinet. I thought with the tape up the process would move along a little faster.....
ya not so much.

I am still undecided on what light fixture to place in here. I am thinking something vintage or redesigned. Also I would like it to hang it from the ceiling instead of a wall mount fixture.

For the pretty I am thinking -   a window treatment 
( this one I actually made but now I am thinking of going with  a different fabric) 

What do you think?

And lastly I need to decide on a fabulous tile or wallpaper- Something to liven the space up 
 It is so muddy looking right now, a look I really do not want to have in my laundry room. 
I still need to source all my options out but once I do I will be coming to all of you for help on the final decision.

Here is 1 more inspirational laundry room pic!!!

What do you think does the laundry room need a little sparkle??

Happy Monday Loves!



  1. I just saw a great tutorial for fancying up a laundry room ceiling over at epbot! [I'm addicted to her blog].

    1. Just checked out her blog - those tiles are a great idea for bringing in texture and a little whimsy. Thanks so much for the info

  2. What color is that blue laundry room with the chandelier? I tried looking at swatches and couldn't find Any to match it!
