Spring Solutions

June 04, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I've been spring cleaning and one area that I needed to declutter and redo is my laundry room. Unfortunately, most people enter my home through my laundry room instead of the front door.  It's just easier, I guess. I have a habit of hanging the hangers on my laundry sorter and didn't like the way that looked so I went in search of a hanger organizer.  Yes, I'm one of those people that would buy such a thing.  I didn't find one that I liked, so I decided to make one of my own.  I used a box cut on the diagonal and made it into a triangle.  Then I taped it together in a chevron pattern with denim and white duct tape.  I hot glued  turquoise felt on the inside.  Functional and adds some color!

Next, I decided to tackle my open shelves, which always seem to collect clutter.  First, I did some much needed tossing.  Then, I decided to make some labels for the baskets to match the hanger organizer.  I walked through Michael's looking for inspiration and found these cute mini-clothespins in the scrapbooking section. I got some wood mini plaques and painted them denim blue.  Then, I decided to made a clothesline out of twine.  I snipped a toothpick to keep the clothesline separated from the plaque (so I could actually use the clothespins).  And finally I made little labels out of white card stock.  I thought about cutting them into clothes shapes, but decided to go with a similar shape to the plaque.  They make me smile every time I enter the room!
