a laundry room takeover. again.

You know it's pretty bad when rooms that we have already made over we are making over again. But sometimes once life settles down or you start into a new routine in a new season a problem with organization may arise. If organization is your thing which it clearly is mine.

Here is our original laundry room before and after.

And here is what our laundry room looked like before Handy Matty got his hands on it. This project basically all started because when Matt would come home from work he would throw his jacket on my washing machine and I didn't understand why he couldn't hang it up on the coat rack or in the coat closet or some other such thing (I am a pleasure to reside with). So he came up with a plan and he executed it with lightening speed. All because of a jacket.

The in between stages...

And then the finished product which we all just love, kids included.

And hopefully we are done. Although I would kind of like a giant letter "O" up on the wall above the shelf.... details.



  1. i swear that man can build anything. i would really like a matt around my apt. this is probably why i don't own ha. but this looks great! that's the moral of the story. another random side note - i was thinking about coat racks the other day. how vintage they are and no one uses them. and then i thought! laur does! i dig it.


  2. looks amazing!! :) we have a similar built-in in our laundry room and love it! great job

  3. Love it!! I mean the man can just build anything. Chris is over here building rockets with legos with Ace. We have a designated mud room in our house with about 25 hooks and still no one can manage to get a jacket or snow pants hung on them.

  4. I don't blame you one bit about the jacket. Love the new unit! You totally need a giant O above it, :)

  5. Looks awesome! And very organized which you know I love :)

  6. yessss that is a dream!!!
