10 Reader Space: "Loads" of Laundry Wow

What I love about today's reader space as it shows just how easy it is to take a space from so so to so wow!

Hope you & your family have a blessed holiday season.  I have been following your blog since the summer.  I am not certain how I stumbled upon it, but I check it out in quite frequently & love it!  You & your blog has inspired me to redo our laundry closet.  It is a small area, but my husband & I tried to make it as functional as possible.  Here are a few pictures...

Ready to see what some simple updates can do to a space?



Anyone who knows me, knows why I adore this transformation: 
  • A fresh coat of paint works wonders in any space needing a quick update!
  • Adding one more shelf packed oodles of extra storage punch!
  • Baskets and white vases {wahoo!}, add concealed storage, giving the space a more eye pleasing and less overwhelming feeling!
Congrats on your new space Ashley!  I love all that you have done to make it more functional for you!  If it's ever possible to get excited about doing laundry, this is the route to go!

Sometimes it's the simplest changes and updates that really bring into perspective the fundamentals of updating a space to be more pleasing!

Inspired by Ashley's submission, today I wanted to open our weekly party up to small changes making a wow of a difference.

P.S.  Have an awesome organizing story to share?  I am looking for projects that have made a positive impact to your life.  Please send your story and photos to and I would heart to feature them right here, on the blog!!  Photos should be high resolution and un-editted.  Please include a description of the project, including any costs, inspiration, and how it has changed your routine for the better is so helpful!  Oh, and no worries my friends, we will NEVER judge "before" pictures because that just wouldn't be nice!  Only love goes on at this blog!


  1. Wow, the paint is like the cherry on top of the project! Can't wait to paint my laundry room!

  2. Loving the red! Such a bold fabulous color for a laundry room! =)

    Thanks for the link-up doll! I linked back to your page on my posts <3

  3. Wow, that looks awesome! My laundry room really needs some work. It's unfinished, and I think a fun paint color would really make it feel nicer.

  4. You inspired me to do my laundry room as well (I linked it up) I'm onto all the other closets in the house. This weekend it's the linen closet!

  5. I love it! Our laundry room needs some help. I'd really love to paint. Too bad my husband is scared of painting--*anyone* painting, not just him, haha.

  6. Thank you so much for hosting this party Jen! Did you have a button that you wanted us to use on our posts to link back to you? Angie xo

  7. Wow...I just love that red just makes such a dramatic statement and with the white appliances it still pops in lieu of making things dark. Great job Ashley :)
    Fondly, Roberta

  8. Love all your inspiration! It makes me want to take more pride in my own space! :)
