Well, sort of, I have a few more things I want to add to this space decor related but with snow days, sick kids and the fact that my loser cruiser mini van couldn’t get out of our snowy driveway I have given up on those final pieces until Spring. When we moved into this house a year ago the previous owners had left their 15 year old teeny tiny stackable washer and dryer set in the mudroom.
The mudroom is not a huge room to begin with and even with the smallest stackable washer and dryer known to man in there it was feeling extra tight.
(Side note, I painted the mud room floor this past summer and used one of those cabinets on the wall and turned it into a storage bench for the mudroom as well). I am assuming to get more space in the mudroom the previous owners also had installed a washer and dryer hookup in the room next to the mudroom and at one point had their washer and dryer in there. This room was intended to be an office and has pretty french doors leading to it.
We ended up donating the extra small washer and dryer set. I really had no other budget friendly options and hated the idea of taking up more space in the mud room.
I finally just said screw it and did the easiest and most cost efficient option I could think of and it turned out pretty well…imagine that. Now when you walk through my front door you see this as our home office and not that hot mess up there.
But honestly, I am not even sure if I can fit a larger rug in here with the washer and dryer hanging out over there. I plan on adding the drawers to these shelves down the road for some extra storage.
I just kind of grouped things together as I liked on the shelves but allowing some empty spaces so it didn’t look too cluttered. On a whim I jumped on Etsy and ordered this ocean picture and had it printed out at Staples.
The easiest and quickest option was to make “drapes” to hang over the washer and dryer.
I found some old drop cloth curtains I had made at our old house and cut them to fit. The wall shelf (also from IKEA-can you guess how many trips to IKEA I made?) Leaning a frame on the shelf to hide the vent was one of those ah-ha moments.
I “made” those prints this past summer and they haven’t found their permanent home yet. I am sure I will change things around multiple times and maybe, just maybe, one day I can move these bad boys but for now they are part of my office.
