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!
