Laundry Room

Renovating a Historic Home in Mississippi

Once a tiny bedroom, the laundry room houses a touch of Tere's own history—her grandmother's washboards. The baskets are from Kmart and World Market. Love the baskets.

A Fresh Start: Making a New Space Feel Like Home

Laundry room

Country style laundry room - wicker, wood, natural bristle brushes, cream enamelware, jugs and tins. I like colors for the kitchen.


I can still smell our laundry hanging in the sunshine, bleached white, with blueing added for extra whiteness. I hear the squeak of the clothesline reel, the fluttering of the clothes in the breeze. Laundry was an all-day event. Ironing was on Tuesday.

Pour le linge

There's nothing like a sturdy old wooden Ironing Board. My nieces don't have a clue as to what an IRON is! I iron everything even my king size sheets! They are much nicer to sleep in!

No need to hide these cleaning supplies for laundry area. See the "Hang It Up" in our Martha's Laundry Room Redo: Tips to Organize a Small Space gallery

Hanging the washing with style.

I want a generous sized yard just so I can hang a beautiful vintage clothesline like this and dry all my laundry on it during the summer months.

Laundry room

we already 2 rows of white shelves above the washer/dryer.we just need another wider shelf to go on top and cabinets. would be cool to get sliding doors for washer dryer instead of cabinets.

Stain-Removal Kit — Corral everything you need to treat stains in one bin or tray. Pour cleaners and solvents into clear bottles and make sure you label them clearly, and keep a stain-removal guide nearby.
