Another day, another project happening over at the Guido household. As I’m sure you are aware of my love for vertical shiplap from last week’s front entryway DIY that my husband did. Welp, I had him busy again last week putting more up. We spend a good amount of time in the laundry room, so it should be organized and well-styled right? I partnered up with Pottery Barn to do a little makeover. See the before and after at the end.

I fell in love with their Trenton laundry organization system. This functional collection is made up of aged wood and iron to give you that rustic yet modern look. They have everything from shelves in various sizes, drying racks and my favorite the folding table desk. I usually have to carry the pile of clothes to my bedroom and fold on my bed. You can usually find a trail of clothes to find me; anyone else have that problem?!? But with this folding table and drying rack, no trails anymore!
Besides functionality for this room, I wanted it to be styled like any other room in our home. Just cause its a laundry room doesn’t mean you can’t make it look pretty. This was a great chance for me to style some shelves. I used the Trenton shelves above the countertop, and above the desk and drying rack. Adding fresh florals and greenery truly brightens up a room. I filled the mason stoneware pitcher with some greenery from my neighbor’s tree. I try to do this in most of my rooms in our home.
Alongside some rattan containers and fresh greenery details, I added some art to the room. Minted has a great collection of prints for any home. Jacquelyn and I love using them any chance we get. On the shelf, I added the forest art pint with a brass frame. Then on the wall, is the misty lake art print.
I prefer to put my laundry soap and supplies in a cabinet or in containers. These mason stoneware containers I added to hold my dryer sheets and laundry pods. The smallest one I use to collect coins that always seem to be left in my husband’s pants. Haha! Not to be out beat by lego pieces and small earrings from my kids.
If you are looking for some stylish and functional pieces for your laundry room or any room for that matter, you should check out these pieces from Pottery Barn. Style meets function!
A big shout out to my amazing husband who busted his little behind to give me what I asked for, even the last minute requests. Here is a before and after. He added that vertical shiplap, framed out the window and created a countertop.
