My laundry room makeover was recently featured in the July/August edition of This Old House Magazine.
The article shares how I transformed our laundry room for a little over $200 with several (easy) DIY projects.

We are lucky to have such a large laundry room (although it does end up being a junk/catch-all room). A few inexpensive DIY projects has made the space a little more useable and homey:
