 It’s been a while since I shared my laundry room makeover with you guys and I realized I never gave you the details on how I did my washer  & dryer facelift! This was the easiest part of the whole makeover and made such a fun impact!

Washer Dryer Makeover East Coast Creative

Here’s a reminder of where I started off (yeah it’s still embarrassing to share this picture, but it’s real life people!)

Messy Laundry Room

I explored a lot of options for how to dress up my washer and dryer, everything from paint, to vinyl, to paint pens, and I finally landed on electrical tape.  I got the idea from the fabulous sisters from A Beautiful Mess.  I ran to Home Depot and picked up hunter green electrical tape and got to work on my pattern.

I went with double stripes for the dryer and little squares for the washer.  I toyed with the idea of little crosses, but I was being a bit OCD about the exact shape, so instead I kept it simple with rectangles and squares.  I didn’t pre-mark anything, I just kind of went for it.  The electrical tape is really easy to work with and is simple to reposition if you need to.

The electrical tape is even renter friendly! It pulls off smoothly and if you have any residue at all GooGone gets rid of it easily.  I also like that if I ever decide to change up the colors in the room, it would be a quick swap out!

Now, I know this project is 100% not necessary for daily life.  If you have a plain washer & dryer your life will be just as fulfilled as mine, but even though it’s pretty much 100% unnecessary, it’s still pretty fun and kind of awesome!  Sometimes I need to do these kind of projects that are purely just to satisfy my creative side.  Do you ever feel like you just HAVE to do something creative or you’ll explode?  My husband SO doesn’t get it when I try and explain that feeling to him, but it’s legit.  If you have the creativity bug, this is a perfect, quick-fix!

    Haha I love the “before” foto. You are a real girl after all!

    Great inspiration…I esp. love the stripes. And the storage too, it goes without saying.

    How sturdy are the crate shelves? For example: can they hold laundry detergent or anything with some weight without pulling down? Thanks!
