Laundry Room Updates and a $500 Home Depot Giveaway

Hi all! I have something fantastic to share today. I’m sure you already know that from the title of this post but whatever. :) I wanted to show you all a few laundry room updates I made recently, and then at the end of this post you can enter to win a $500 gift card to Home Depot! Wow, that will buy a lot of goodies.

First things first. Here is our laundry room now with a few changes I made to help it be more efficient.


Can you spot the changes? It’s minor, but big to me. If you don’t remember or haven’t seen our laundry room before, you’ll recall I put up 2 little shelves back when I redid this room…


While they looked pretty with the plates and such, they weren’t real functioning shelves. They were very flimsy and I didn’t have peace of mind putting detergent on them. So with that issue, me going back to the Expedit cabinet on the other side of the room was a pain and eventually everything just landed on top of the dryer. So it was never clean and tidy. Never. I know. Tough problems to have.

So since I partnered up with The Home Depot again for their #BrilliantHEClean campaign, I went there and bought a few new things. The main thing being a new shelf!


It was one of the Rubbermaid shelves that are very inexpensive, maybe $25 or so? I just love it and love having a shelf there that I can actually use. It’s just very handy to have everything right there.

We also picked up these silver brackets so it was a bit more decorative.


I bought a few of these Martha Stewart bins at The Home Depot for extra storage too. I keep my iron in one of them.


And of course I’m stocked with my Tide detergent and liquid fabric softener.


On the other side of the room I still have the expedit, but I ended up throwing random stuff on top of it so it also never stayed cleared off. So I bought these awesome Rubbermaid bins to store stuff in.


I love them because that clear side opens up. Such a genius idea. I want to buy 2 more for in here also. They would also be very handy for books and such and all of my magazines that I can’t seem to part with. They will be collector’s items one day.

Here are a few more shots of the laundry room. You can see all of the details about this room in my original laundry room makeover post.




The laundry room redesign with my new storage shelves and new storage bins have been so great and I feel I can operate much better in here now. And I say I because I’m the one who does laundry. I still love our laundry room and the bright colors. It’s a happy little place. :)

Tide, The Home Depot and Maytag have all partnered together for the #BrilliantHEClean campaign, and you can visit their site to enter to win a Maytag washer and dryer + a year’s worth of Tide detergent AND $5,000 to redo your laundry room! They’ve also partnered with Jenny Komenda, decorator and blogger at The Little Green Notebook where you can also win an e-design consult with her for the redesign of your new laundry room. See her tips here to make your laundry room even more awesome.

  1. I’d use the $500 to DIY a w/d pedestal, some cabinets with space to hang clothes, and a countertop! It’d also be nice to re-tile the floor and paint the little nook. Oh, and install a new light (right now we just have a fluorescent tube office/garage/workshop-type fixture…it’s hawttt =P). Lastly, I want to install an electrical outlet in there. Who builds a laundry/garage entry/pantry space without ONE. SINGLE. OUTLET?! Anyway…mildly ambitious??? :)

  2. Oh gosh…I’d use that $500 for some new flooring or start the makeover of the laundry room that will otherwise be delayed until enough money is saved.

  3. Becky Warner says:

    New flooring, countertop, shelving, and paint. Since my laundry area is so small, $500 would (should) take care of the entire makeover!

  4. OMG – my laundry room is in serious need of a makeover! Our painter sprayed my off-white cabinets with an oil-based gloss so they’ve slowly turned an amber color over time – yuck. So… I’d repaint my cabinets, add a wallpaper/stencil accent wall, paint the door that leads from the laundry room to the garage, and replace a boob light fixture!! Loooong list. Hope I win!

  5. Our laundry room is also our entry from the attached garage, and we really need to get some coat racks/shelving in there, and I would love some cupboards over the washer/dryer for storage so I don’t have to move all the detergent bottles everytime I want to use the sink!

  6. Oh man. Where to begin?? I’d buy some of the super cool Ryobi tools and then create an open pantry and cuee kiddo cubbies for my laundry room.

  7. i would add some color to my laundry room and shelving. its sooo boring!

  8. Deanna Winne says:

    Maybe a new top loader washer or at the least some great storage!

  9. Leslie Moore says:

    Right now, our laundry room is our garage! It is the pits. I would probably use the money to get a new dryer (at least it would pay for some of it)!

  10. Michellelhb says:

    I would love to change the paint, add some shelving and add a great stencil to my laundry room. Thanks for the chance:-)

  11. With $500, would love to add some cabinets to my laundry area. It’s a small space so organization is key and that would help out a lot!!!

  12. I would love to re-paint and get some good organizing systems!

  13. My laundry room needs a top to bottom makeover. I would paint, replace the peeling floor and add shelving.

  14. With $500 I could completely change my laundry room. I have the bones but need to pretty it up with a rug and add some storage containers/baskets for organization. Of course paint would be a must.

  15. I have big plans for our laundry room – installing shelves and cabinets over the W/D, including a hanging rod. I want to paint it a bold purple with a modern light overhead. I’d love a colored W/D. Your laundry room looks great!

  16. I have big plans for my laundry room and with $500 …? Oh my I could do wonders! Rug, shelves, light fixture. Awesome!

  17. Tara Dawes says:

    I would use it to repaint (it’s this horrid primary yellow currently) fix some spots in the wall where my dogs scratched and tried to eat drywall. Also, would love to repaint the white cabinets and put up some shelving.

  18. My laundry room is the one room of our house we’ve not updated at all. I would love to trade out my wire shelves for something prettier, but just as functional. I’d love to add a little paint, a cute rug and a new light. I have a tiny laundry room so $500 would do wonders!

  19. I would definitely makeover my laundry room! It is in need of major a update. I would paint it a bright color, add some shelves for storage that we desperately need and put up some cute wall art.

  20. I could do a whole makeover with $500! I would definitely paint the walls a nice serene color and add some functional shelving/storage containers. :-)

  21. I souls love to tacke my mud room/laundry room combo room. It is a room that has so much potential and is really underwhelming at the moment. No real shelving, paint colour selected by the previous owners, no real organization tool. So, first up I’d want to paint, add some shelving, add some DIY art and also a decent closet organizer for the double closet that currently only has a single rod and no shelve (how have I managed to live in this hous for 18 months and not tackled this room yet?)

  22. Awesome giveaway! I’d use the money to put a cupboard over my wash machine, floating shelves over my dryer, and a hanging bar under them. I’d also like one of those ironing boards that recesses into the wall! I’d have no problem using that gift card! Haha ;) Thanks for the chance!

  23. I would do some kind of wall treatment to our painted walls and some prints for color and interest–and new lighting…

  24. Cindy Flagg says:

    My laundry is small and tight. It really could use some clever storage solutions, paint and new lighting. I’m short and the previous owner wasn’t. :) It all needs to be brought down to my level.

  25. I have a laundry closet as opposed to a laundry room; I’d like to replace the doors/paint the inside a nice happy color with stripes/replace the warped shelves and add decorative storage/add something to hang wet clothes/and add a light fixture

  26. $500? I’d put in a new shelf right above the washer and dryer. I’d replace the funky utility sink with one that was easier to clean and had a cabinet below instead of the open dust collecting area it has now. I’d replace the boob, light, paint the cabinets and figure out a way to put in a drying rack. The drying rack will be quite the feat as it’s small and has three doorways and not much wall space! Still deciding if I’d repaint or not.

  27. My laundry room is disorganized and you enter it from my door in the garage, so it gets a lot of traffic. It is a large room so I would like to organize it into a mud room/laundry room. I would use the money for shelves, storage, paint, etc.

  28. shannon macklam says:

    My laundry room is tiny and needs paint! Something bright and fun!

  29. I would start by painting the laundry a pretty color instead of the white it is now and then add some fun artwork so I have something to look at while doing laundry!

  30. Lindsay James says:

    I desperately need a big shelf type thing attached to the wall above the washer and dryer so that I can fold clothes. Folding on top of the dryer means that things slide down the sides and it’s so irritating (1st world problem I know).

  31. Lets see. $500 at Home Depot. Wood flooring, paint please, stain, landscaping for sure, bathroom fixtures, door knobs, a couple of new wall outlets, and some cleaning stuff for that mess that we make. I guess that’s a little bit over $500. Oh well, you gotta start somewhere!

  32. Our laundry room is unfinished, so the possibilities are endless of what we could do! Flooring, walls, shelving…this would be fabulous!

  33. Melissa Tucker says:

    I don’t have a laundry room, but I do have a laundry area in the garage. It is in desperate need of some drywall and functional shelving. I think $500 should do it!

  34. Beautiful Make Over! I could use the kick in the rear to get mine finished! (500 wouldn’t hurt either)

  35. I would add extra shelving and paint.

  36. I would LoVE a gift card from Home Depot to spruce up my laundry room!! I want to take those cabinets out because they’re so tall and far back I can’t even reach anything! I would also love to install a countertop on top of my washer and dryer for folding and sorting. Please please please!!!

  37. I would love a whole system for sorting laundry after it’s done. Right now it just ends up in y bedroom until the kids get around to getting it. Not very practical. I also need to replace my washer which is on the fritz.

  38. Some cupboards in my laundry room would be amazing!!!

  39. Oh, my laundry room needs so much help!!! And, with 8 kids I feel like I live there! This would be so great!

  40. Lisa McIvor says:

    My laundry room is in desperate need of a makeover. It’s long and narrow, and right now I’m not utilizing the Soave I do have properly. I think I need to print this post and hang it at my work space as motivation to attack my own room!

  41. I pinned the giveaway here:

  42. Amber Heckler says:

    I would love love love to add a cool turquoise color to the walls and add a super fun chandelier. Then I would love to remove the cabinets and replace them with open shelving! So clean and open! :) Thanks for the giveaway! Love me some Home Depot!!!! (And we only use Tide)

  43. Katie Allison says:

    We just moved into a new-to-us house and it needs a lot of TLC. We are in dire need of a laundry room redo!

  44. Love the bright and warm look. I would love to spend more time in my laundry if it looked so good!

  45. Kristen Saucedo says:

    I’d love to use the $500 dollars to paint our laundry room and get a new energy efficient washer and dryer!!

  46. Definitely need new shelving, paint, and a cute chandelier to make me enjoy the HOUR I spend on there. :)

  47. I would LoVE a gift card from Home Depot to spruce up my laundry room!! I want to take those cabinets out because they’re so tall and far back I can’t even reach anything! I would also love to install a countertop on top of my washer and dryer for folding and sorting. Please please please!!!

  48. First, I just love the vibrant colors you used…. they would definitely make me want to do laundry!

    As for my laundry.. its tiny and by the back door crammed with the largest water heater Ive ever seen. My hubby and I would love to go tankless and mount it higher so we could make a folding station in that corner complete with drawers to hold the necesities and remove one of the giant cabinets over the w/d so that we can insrall a hangbar too. It would be far more functional that way. As is no one can go in or out while we are doing laundry!

  49. Just the inspiration I needed to give my laundry room so help! Yours looks great! Thanks for the chance to win…I love me some Home Depot!

  50. wow…I can think of lots of ways I could use the GC from home depot…paint, organization stuff, some much needed updated hardware on the cupboards…the list could keep going on…

  51. I just pinned your giveaway on my “laundry room” board on Pinterest!

  52. It is all in the details, great room! I would like to spend on tools. I have nothing and really can’t do anything on my DIY list without them.

  53. Laurie King says:

    For our laundry room, I would put in a folding/sorting table to help us better organize the girls clothes. I’d also put in a drying rack from the ceiling to keep the drying clothes out of my closet :)

  54. I pinned the image on my pinterest page :) good luck to everyone

  55. I’d use the $500 to help purchase a new range….really needing one and hoping to get one with a double oven!

  56. Tiffany B. says:

    My laundry room is in desperate need of help! I am totally in LOVE with the colors you have chosen for yours, and it makes me realize how much I want to give mine a fun colorful makeover too. I would paint, get rid of the icky linoleum floor I have now, and add a lot more shelving.

  57. Oh man I’d put that $500 to good use! DIY pedastal for w/d new tile & paint- just to name a few!

  58. Ashley Mills says:


  59. Maria Mendoza says:

    I would love to win and fix up some stuff at the house

  60. We just did a small remodel so I’d love to be able to accessorize it (saving up funds now!) with baskets, shelving, etc!

  61. Just moved and the laundry is in the garage. Trying to build a room first and then figure out what to do in it. Sure could use some inspiration and of course $500 would be so helpful in getting it DONE! Thanks for the chance to win… PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME… oh… did I just say that? :)

  62. We are moving into a new home and though the washer and dryer are almost new, the cabinets above them need some work. I would love to rip them out and have some open shelves like yours!!

  63. Unfortunately I don’t have a laundry room because I live in a condo, but your laundry room looks awesome! Great job. That is definitely one of the things I miss…the convenience of throwing a load of laundry in the wash while you do other things around the house. Instead I have to hunt for quarters, put my clothes in laundry bags and drag bags and detergent to the laundry mat. Since I don’t have a laundry room I think I would use that $500 towards a new dishwasher!!

  64. Ashley Mills says:

    Pinned onto contests

  65. I would add storage!!!

  66. I pinned it to my pinterest page! Thanks!!!

  67. Belinda C. says:

    I’d like to paint, beadboard and shelve. Or maybe put it toward a new washer and dryer….. =)

  68. Tiffany B. says:

    I just pinned this giveaway on Pinterest. :)

  69. Great Giveaway! I would definitely put cabinets in my laundry room to store/hide all our clutter! And maybe a fun new wall color as well:)

  70. We don’t really have a laundry room. The washer and dryer live in our breezeway. The layout of things is completely inefficient and can only get better. $500 would go a long way toward putting together something lovely. If it looks too nice, though, I’d probably have to get rid of the 20 year old washer with the broken knobs. ;)

  71. I’Ve started trying to beautify our laundry room in our 1940’s tutor style home. It needed alot of help, paint and baseboards on our small budget so far but the $500 would really help make it an enjoyable room :) love your blog!! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

  72. I’d use the $500 to MOVE my laundry “room” from the closet between my daughters’ bedrooms to the basement so I can do laundry during naptime or when they go to bed and maybe, hopefully, be able to get a whole load of laundry done in one day. I’d paint the walls, add some storage cabinets or shelving, replace the peeling linoleum flooring and if there was anything left over (which there would be because I’m a super thrifty lady!) I’d get a few decorations to pull the room together. Ahhhhh, that would be so wonderful!

  73. I do laundry in our basement….nothing wonderful in that space!! I would love to install some cupboards and drying racks. And I am off right now to buy a new washer…replaced the dryer a few months ago. Now the washer has bit the dust. And I have loads of dirty laundry from my teens waiting for me!

  74. Sharon Lynn says:

    I would love some color in my laundry room.
    Love the color in yours :-)
    God Bless You :-)

  75. I am moving into my first house next week and the laundry room is plain, white and has no character. I would love to paint it, add a fun light fixture, put in a bar to hang up clothes and look into wood open shelving!

  76. Alyssa Jurgensmeier says:

    I’d love to paint and get shelving and some things for organization for my laundry room.

  77. I love the cheerful colors you chose!would love the $ to update mine !

  78. I shared on Pinterest :)

  79. Your laundry room is gorgeous! It makes me really miss my laundry room at our old house. Right now we are renting a small house with just a laundry closet (and I hate it). We just moved to the area and are still trying to figure out where we want to “live.” I am looking forward to being able to decorate not only a laundry room, but an entire house!

  80. I would use the gift card to add more storage areas to some small spaces. Can never have to much storage.

  81. Alyssa Jurgensmeier says:

    I shared on Pinterest

  82. Pinned it on Pinterest!

  83. My laundry room is so plain! I would love to purchase some paint and maybe stencils and try to do something cool. I would also like to add in some shelving units and some cute little decorative items!

  84. Love it ! Great use of the space !

  85. Sara Russell says:

    I love the color of your laundry room! It definitely makes laundry a little more fun when your laundry room is cute and organized;-) I would love to win the gift card and paint my laundry room! I would also like to add some organzing bins!

  86. I’d love to buy new tile for my master bathroom! Or put $500 toward my kitchen cabinet fund!

  87. Abbey Burlingham says:

    My laundry room is just short of a dungeon. It’s cold and has concrete walls and a floor. It has potential but needs a while lot of TLC and some good water sealed paint. I would use the $500 to buy paint, shelving and build some sort of room divider. See, my laundry room is also my craft room but it would be nice to divide the spaces! Thank you for all of your great home tips, tricks and personal touched. Happy ‘diy’ing!


  88. Sonya Greenhalgh says:

    I would redo the shelving/storage in my laundry room. I need to be more efficient in there. I also need to get rid of the random junk just piled on an otherwise useless counter in my laundry room. I would LOVE the $500 to make that room really functional!

  89. $500 from Home Depot! YES, please! I would love some shelves in my laundry room. I love HD!

  90. I would love o paint our laundry room. White is just too plain! And I think a happier laundry room would make that chore a little easier! I’d also lve some shelves that’s could reach easier, we have wire ones that are so high I have to get a chair. Not convenient at all!

  91. Liz Cafaro says:

    Since I spend ALL my time there (or so it seems) I would love for it to be painted a pretty, soothing color! I also am in love with the chandelier in your post – right now I have a dome light that may or may not have a few dead bugs in it. Add some shelving, and even a counter above the washer and dryer for folding, and I might never come out. :)

  92. Lynell Williams says:

    I would love $500 to update my laundry room with additional cabinets for storage and accents to brighten the room up.

  93. I would put in new flooring!!

  94. Jen Pringle says:

    I would use the money toward a new screen door for the front of the house.

  95. The number one thing I would do is paint!!! Color is defined needed on the walls!!! After that, maybe new shelving and storage!!! :) Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  96. Christi Honeycutt says:

    I would use the $500 to create storage for my laundry room. It is in the garage and needs help. I could use it to make a place to fold laundry when it comes out of the dryer. That would be awesome!

  97. Would fix up my bathroom!

  98. Kim Kramer says:

    Recently got a new dryer had to and now my storage between washer dryer not big enough to fit in the organizer and too many things so would definitely try and find new way to organize

  100. I would use the gift card for counter tops or maybe flooring. Thanks for hosting this giveaway.

  103. With $500 I would solve my organization problem in my laundry room with shelves!!!! Lots of them!!!

  104. I would use the money for paint, shelving/storage solution items sms some fun new lighting.

  108. Angela Evans says:

    Hmm, I would love to get a new floor and lighting in my laundry room, not to mention a new w/d :) I will have to keep saving up for that! I recently had some cabinet put in so I have a little jump start on my makeover :) There are plenty of other areas around our house that I could use the HD gift card for.

  109. Thanks so much for the giveaway! Currently my laundry area is in our unfinished dungeon of a basement. This $500 would be a great start to the revamp I have in mind! Probably some cabinets and flooring would be our first step. :)

  110. I would put the $500 toward a top-loading HE washer. Yours is so pretty. I have washer envy.

  111. I am redoing my kitchen and laundry room and would use the $500 for so many things. I need paint, and shelves and some type of storage cubbies and a bench and……you get the idea. Plus I want to put a Welcome wall sticky above the entrance to the kitchen since this is where most people come in. It would be so nice to keep it neat and tidy. Big dreams. Thanks for the giveaway.

  112. Tracy Napper says:

    I’d put it some new flooring and perhaps repaint. Love your laundry room, especially the rug!

  113. We’ll be moving into a different house to begin 2014, so I will have a clean decorating slate with which to use $500 from Home Depot! The sky is the limit! :)

  114. Your room looks great! I would use the GC to purchase some paint, new light fixture, trim and a few more baskets.

  115. I shared this awesome giveaway on Pinterest. Thanks.

  116. Tami Dymock says:

    Love what you have done with your laundry room. I would use the 500 dollars toward
    organizing my laundry room. We have just purchased a home and the laundry room was not taken
    care of. Thanks for a chance. I have also shared on facebook this giveaway.

  117. Rebekah Westover says:

  118. Brook Barrow says:

    Our laundry room is so tiny. Needs new paint and shelves!! Love your ideas!!

  119. I would love to have the money to use towards painting my laundry rooom, adding bins (which I never thought of before until I saw this post) and adding a shelf above my washer/dryer…possibly crown molding and a new light fixture…my globe actually fell off and it’s just a light bulb right now!

  120. I would love this $500.00 to make our laundry room more inviting. More shelves, storage and color. :)

  121. I can think of a million things I would like to do but the first would be a new light fixture and storage bench type area as our laundry room is also a mud room/catch all!!!!

  122. Emily Hornsby says:

    I’d love to put cabinets above my washer & dryer!! & paint those blah walls!! I’m
    Thinking an ocean blue!!!

  123. Shared on Pinterest!!!!!

  124. Megan Warrem says:

    Our laundry room is in the basement and it’s hideous. I would use the $500 to add some paint, shelving and much needed storage!! With four kids, ranging from 2 months to 6 years old, I do A LOT of laundry and would love a more organized space to work in. Anything leftover would probably be saved towards a new washer/dryer. Thanks for the chance to win :)

  125. Since our laundry room is basically a piece of plywood with a washer and dryer on it in our unfinished garage/laundry room…the possibilities are endless! I have my “dream” laundry rooms pinned and will take inspiration from those when we are able to make dreams come true! Winning this would make it a reality!
    Thank you!!

  126. I would love to have more storage options and the amazing drawers that go under front load washer and dryers! Thank you for the awesome giveaway!! You’re laundry room is beautiful!

  127. I really need this! I want to repaint my laundry room, add storage containers, would love a new washer/dryer too.

  128. Your post is so timely because I want to add an additional shelf above our washer/dryer, too. Currently there are 2 already there, but they are so high up that I cannot place the detergent, etc. up there. You’ve inspired me to go to The Home Depot and just buy another shelf and some of those organizing bins! Of course, having $500 to spend there would be awesome!

  129. Sarah McGiven says:

    I would put it towards a new washer and dryer. Mine are on their way out the door and this would help out a ton!

  130. Right now our laundry room walls and ceiling is torn out. All the cable and internet wiring in the house has to be redone (new house!) and my is slowly but surely workng on that. I would use the $500 for new sheetrock to get our laundry room back to a room.

  132. Julie Eiland says:

    My Laundry Room could use new flooring & a paint job in a bright, cheery color! :)

  133. Shared on Facebook :)

  134. I would use it to feed my decorating habit!

  135. New light fixture and new storage shelves to replace the one that sways every time you touch it!! Then maybe a new paint color and some new bright color bins!!!

  137. I also shared this wonderful giveaway on the one and only Pinterest!

  142. My laundry is in the garage, I would use the gift card to add shelving and carpet or a rug to stand on, to make it feel more like a room!

  143. tracy mccormack says:

    New flooring! when moving my old fridge into the laundry room/ utility room, the horrendous vinyl flooring was ripped in a spot that’s a little hard to hide. It’d be great to change out that ugly floor and replace with something fresh and clean looking. Then I’d add a pretty rug like yours!

  144. I would revamp my shelves and build a litterbox cupboard/shoe cubbie/cat feeder combo unit. In my head it is fabulous and makes my life so much easier. :)

  146. I love the color and the shelves. I want my laundry room to be a cheery color and to have lots of storage.

  147. My laundry room is the unfinished part of my basement. I would love to add some shelves to that area so maybe I could clear off the dryer.

    This area is also where we store all our seasonal decorations, kid’s clothing that is too small, baby things, etc. We could definitely use some help to clean it up and organize!

  148. Michelle D says:

    I’d love to use that $500 towards a great chandelier like yours in the laundry room! What a great idea!

  149. I really need cabinets in my laundry room to hide the “stuff”….plus it needs to be painted and organized. Thanks!

  150. We are moving into a new to us house and would love to be able to put my mark on the laundry room!!!! I only use Tide HE!!! Right now we run a small motel and I don’t mind paying the extra money to have instead if generic because it keeps my linens white and clean!!!

  151. Melissa M. says:

    I definitely need additional storage in my laundry room, so that would be priority number one if I won the $500 gift card from Home Depot. I can never manage to keep the top of the dryer uncluttered. Anything additional would just be a bonus!

  152. Ramona George says:

    Just realized I put my email in the website spot on my last post!!!!!!
    I also shared on Facebook!!!!

  153. Wow I louvre the simple idea to make your room more efficient. I would use the $500 gift card to add some cabinets and a pretty chandelier to make it more bright in there. I would love to have a pretty rug too. Some decorative hooks to place things on would be a big help. Little things to make me happier doing laundry.

  154. Gosh, I have a closet size laundry room with two stackables sitting side by side and a shelf I can’t reach. It’s not a workable situation! I would love to have it better organized with actual shelving and racks to hang clothes! What a great laundry room you have!

  155. Debbie Chamlee says:

    I have been wanting to redo my laundry room for a while! I want to put black & white tiles on the floor, paint the walls green, add a shelf above the washer & dryer & then add some black decor on the walls. My pantry is also in the laundry room so I’m also thinking about painting the door!
    Love your laundry room & the storage baskets!

  156. Pinned your beautiful laundry room!

  157. Totally shared this on pinterest…

  158. Janet Martin says:

    I would use the money for a new dryer, mine is
    Dying a slow death, som

  159. I would repaint my laundry room and add new shelving. I love the bright colors you chose for yours. Great job.

  160. That is awesome! I would not even mind my laundry room being so small if it was as cute and functional as this! This is just about the size of mine and I have been wanting to add some new shelves and a cute paint color! Love it :)

  161. Amy in Austin, TX says:

    we just moved and my laundry room needs HELP! $500 from Home Depot would be fantastic! :)

  162. Kali Kundomal says:

    Love what you did with your laundry room! I’d love to get more organizing bins for mine!

  163. Maureen Garrison says:

    My laundry room is a closet. I’d love to paint the walls apple green, replace the noisy, inefficient fan, and add a cute chandelier. I might change out the wire shelving for some wood shelves, too. The trouble with a small, skinny closet is that most of your space is useless for storage unless you’re like twelve feet tall.

  164. carol rose says:

    I have so many things i could do in my laundry/closet/utility room !!! I would put that 500.00 towards a stacked washer/dryer for more room !!

  165. cathy rice says:

    jeepers $500 would be a great start on changing the plastic pink tiles out of the bathroom! Your laundry room just makes a girl happy!

  166. Oooh I’d love to paint, change out the builder “boob” light, and move the cabinets up to the ceiling so I can fit a hanging rod and open shelf underneath. Small things, but I think they’d have a big impact on the dark little cave. If I was feeling really inspired, I’d probably paint the cabinets and maybe even stencil a wall or something!

  167. Suzy Bryan says:

    Would so love to use the money to paint the laundry room a pretty blue gray. Also add open shelving for bins and baskets. We do lots of laundry with college grad back in the fold and a Pom girl with loads of practice tshirts & uniforms. Love to find a unique way to hang ironing board too!!

  168. I posted a link on Pinterest!

  169. Michelle A says:

    we live in military housing so I cannot do too much but some storage baskets, a rug, new laundry baskets, a solution for my mops and brooms…… I’m sure I could spend 500 no problem :)

  170. Well, if we have to be in the laundry room, we might as well enjoy it. I love your bold choice or orange. Way to go–it’s a winner!

  171. I have been wanting to re organize. I don’t have a ton of space but there are definitely a lot of different things I could do. Such as getting a few of those cute bins and putting in a few more cupboards or shelves. I may even have my hubby build me a stand for my washer and dryer! Love what you did with your space. Love the chandelier.

  172. Selena Rich says:

    I would buy lots of shelving/organizing items!!! I think I would do laundry more if the room was pretty! LOL

  173. I’d love to win 500$ from Home Depot!

  174. Selena Rich says:

    I shared on my Facebook page! :-)

  175. I’d use it to help spruce up curb appeal. I’m about to put my “as is” house on the market. I need a fast sale. If at least the yard looks nice, maybe some sweet family with lots of energy and ideas can see the potential in buying my house!

  176. I’d get shelves and a tankless water heater so that I could actually DO laundry inside my tiny, eyesore laundry room. :)

  177. Alicia in Lucas says:

    I would love to build a raised platform for my washer / dryer.

  178. Oh the possibilities are endless!! Love your ideas always a great inspiration!!

  179. I’d love to add shelving above my washer and dryer, freshen up the space with paint and add countertop space for folding clothes. My twins love to “help” and this would keep the clean folded clothes safely out of reach!

  180. I’d refinish the cabinets and replace my flooring.

  181. Meghanne L. says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! $500 is a lot of money. I would definitely do new shelving, new lights, and new paint!

  182. Tawnya Marney says:

    Perfect timing! I’d use that $500 to build shelves and a nice counter above my brand new Maytag Maxima set we got this week. It MUST be done, and soon, since the doors had to come off the laundry closet to fit my beautiful new machines and I can’t stand walking by open clutter!!

  183. Brittney Diaz says:

    I rent… so would buy a nice washer and dryer so we wouldn’t have to use the one here that’s from the 1960s :)

  184. I pinned it! Thanks for the chance!

  185. Denise Rosales says:

    I’m starting my laundry room project now. $500 would help! Love your ideas you give me lots of inspiration.

  186. I would love to add some shelving and storage to my laundry space with the winnings. Thanks for the chance!

  187. Meghanne L. says:
  188. I would get new shelves and a table to fold laundry.

  189. I would love some nice storage like you have. I keep putting off organizing and this would help me to do that! thanks so much for the chance.

  190. tweet–

  191. I would love $500 to makeover my laundry nook(yes, I said nook). It a tiny closet off our kitchen and so crammed and tiny! It could definitely use some sprucing up!! Make me a happy girl with a happy place to do laundry!! Please! ;)

  192. Share

  193. Anne Bousquet says:

    I would paint my laundry room in a bright color like yours! Plus I would add more storage. Lots of possibilities with $500!

  194. Like now I have bare cements walls in my laundry room. I would love to do shelves and drywall in my laundry room!

  195. What an awesome giveaway! We are building a brand new house and $500 at Home Depot would go a long way! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  196. Tawnya Marney says:

    PS – Pinned to my Pinterest board :

  197. Oh, goodness, our laundry room needs help! I guess some shelving would be nice, and I would love to have a sink in there as well!

  198. I tweeted it! @theprettybee

  199. Laurel Hensley says:

    I have a long narrow laundry room that is also the pass through from the garage. It needs help! I’d start with new shelving and countertop. I’d also like to replace the door framing that our old dog chewed up! Then I’d paint the door to the garage.

  200. Laundry is my nemesis! It is the one household chore I can not master! My laundry room has zero functionality, and I’d love to change that! It’s a small space, but I’m sure it could work somehow! I’d love to install a large shelf or table where I could fold laundry as it comes out! We hang so many of our clothes, so I’d love some hanging racks. And because it’s such a small space, a retractable ironing board would be amazing! Thanks for running such an awesome contest!! I’m so excited!!

  201. Love it! We just bought a new house so I can use the inspiration, and the gift card! :-)

  202. Melissa Foust says:

    We’re moving in March 2014 so I would use the money to put a big basin sink in my laundry/mud room! Maybe some paint too :)

  203. Jennifer Norrell says:

    Awesome giveaway!!! I would love to add two upper cabinets to my laundry closet with a clothes bar & a shelf. A coat of paint would be great too!

  204. It’s not laundry related, but I’d spend it on a shelving unit I’ve been chomping at the bit to make for my living room. Thanks for the giveaway!

  205. Melissa Foust says:

  207. Vicky McGovern says:

    I would use the $500.00 to paint the walls, replace flooring and paint the cabinets in my daughter’s laundry room.

  208. Hi~ I would love to win this gift card! We just got approval on our home and can move in around 30 days from today! I would love to add cabinets, shelving and a countertop to our laundry area! We need storage so bad in this space!

    XOXO Lindsay

  209. O Gosh Where Would I Start?!More Storage? New And Bigger Sink? Or Maybe New Curtains And Some Decor For The WallS! Do They Have A Machine To Fold Laundry Yet? :)

  210. Janae Griffiths says:

    I need light fixtures and we are hoping to start the process of finishing our laundry/storage room. The GC would be handy for all the small stuff we would need. I love the bright colors in your laundry room! It looks great! This is an awesome giveaway!!

  211. kimberly t says:

    I would love to add some cabinets and new flooring!

  212. I also pinned this on Pinterest!!

  213. I’m moving in a week! A $500 HD gift card would go a long way in the new place!

  214. Arrie Womack says:

    I would paint, get new light fixtures and a new washing machimne!

  215. I just have one flimsy little shelf in my laundry room, so I have been dying to put overhead cabinets in there. I also have the plumbing for a sink, but no sink yet, so I would love to add a nice deep sink in there as well!

  216. Ha- my ‘laundry room’ consists of a corner of our as-yet-unfinished basement. I would love to at least paint the walls and floor to keep the dust down, and perhaps change the bare bulb to an actual LIGHT FIXTURE! Sigh, someday…

  217. We are closing soon on a house but the laundry room is really nasty. So it definitely needs some cosmetic work. Floor, wall, shelves etc. this will make me happy not having to put off the laundry room!

  218. Sara Baker says:

    I would use $500 to buy new doors for our laundrey area, paint, knobs, stenciling…and maybe some new flooring!

  219. I need more shelves in my laundry room. It drives me bonkers the lack of storage in my house in general but the laundry room is the worst. I could easily have three more rows of shelving in there!

  220. I have no cabinets in my laundry room, so something for storage is definitely what I would change! that way everything wouldn’t have to sit on top of my dryer :)

  221. In my dreams, I would triple the space! I’d love to put a rolling door on it so I could actually close the door on occasion. It needs shelving and paint.

  222. Just shared your pin on my Pinterest board!

  223. Crystal Espinoza says:

    I once read, “God is ever-present. He promises He’ll never leave us…just like laundry!” :) With the gc I would definitely do some painting in my laundry room, add a counter above dryer, get new laundry baskets, chandelier would be nice too :) & stock up on laundry cleaning products!!! TY for this opportunity!

  224. I would love to add some nice shelving to my laundry room and get it orginized so I know where everything is.

  225. My laundry space has one builder grade cabinet on the wall and a wire shelf. It’s so useless! I’d love to do a better cabinet or shelving system, and find some way to get the piles of laundry off the floor. We need to walk through there to get to the garage!

  226. Ha! Where to start? Our laundry room is a catch-all from everything to birthing puppies to collecting all kinds of junk. I would definitely use the money for organizational stuff. And paint!

  227. I have to tell you that I love your light fixture! What a great way to jazz up the laundry room.

    Yesterday, while in Home Depot, I noticed those Rubbermaid bins – that open on the side – and almost picked them up. So, if I won, I’d definitely buy those, new shelves, new paint, a silver shower rod, and change out the door handles.

    Sigh. I love Home Depot.

  228. I would use it everywhere I could to update our new house! There is never enough money for all-o-that!

  229. I definitely need some new rugs and lots of baskets to organize things.

  230. We just bought a new house and I would LOVE a new front door with a window so I could actually see outside! Fingers crossed!!

  231. Just pinned it to my Pinterest!

  232. On, and I shared on Facebook AND pinterest! Crossing fingers!

  233. Crystal Espinoza says:

    Repinned :) TY again!!!

  234. So many things I’d like to do, but adding storage and painting the laundry room would be great!

  235. Danielle C. says:

    Oh…I would love this to add shelves in our laundry room. I can imagine the possibilities with this gift card. I love TIde too! Keeping my fingers crossed. What a great giveaway!

  236. hausfrauChelsea says:

    I pinned the contest image.

    Thanks for an awesome giveaway, HD and DC!

  237. Kara Burns says:

    I would love to reprint my laundry room. I also want to add cabinets to create more storage. I will add a drying bar. Also an in the wall ironing board.

  238. hausfrauChelsea says:

    I’d love to redo the lighting in my laundry room and install recessed lights, both in there and the adjoining kitchen. Currently I have a measly contractor grade light in the laundry and fluorescent light in the kitchen. They both need to be recessed!

  239. Kara Burns says:

    Shared this giveaway on Facebook!

  240. I would love to add a folding table/station to my laundry room. With a baby on the way, I’m sure I’ll be doing tons of laundry!


  241. LauriePags says:

    I would actually buy a new washer/dryer and cabinets above for better storage. My current shelves done work for me. Too shallow. And of course a folding station!

  242. Our laundry room is the first thing we see when we come into the house from the garage. There are always piles of stuff and shoes and it is dim and dull. I would paint it a bright color and invest in some storage solutions for our stuff!

  243. I would love to be able to put some functional shelves in our laundry room! Maybe throw some drywall up on the walls and actually make it inviting instead of just the utility room!

  244. I shared the giveaway on Pinterest!

  245. We’re moving into an apartment with a W/D in unit in just 10 days! It’ll be the first time in 5 years I won’t be trekking down to a creepy basement to do laundry. It’s only a closet, but I think the shelves above could use some cute bins, maybe a coat of paint, and of course – a new hamper! Hmm, or removeable wallpaper… now you have my wheels turning!

  246. I would love to add some shelving and create a small mudroom in my laundry room!

  247. Love this! We really need a new washer and dryer! Fingers crossed!

  248. Whitney Warburton says:

    I’m about to be married soon and the apartment we are moving into is older and has a very boring laundry room. With this $500 I would transform my laundry room and add color, shelves, and make if very organized with bins and labels.

  249. Pinned the giveaway!

  250. I would love to get some organization supplies to help with the laundry room clutter and storing my son’s old clothing.

  251. Also pinned this! Love!

  252. Whitney Warburton says:

    Shared this giveaway on Pinterest! :)

  253. I would love to add cabinets and a retractable clothesline to my laundry room.

  254. I would use it to buy some new paint so I could paint the walls in our home. It’s currently mostly tan and I’d like to add some color!

  255. Donna Williams says:

    Paint, ironing board storage, new lighting, cubbies. Would love to do all this in my laundry room.

  256. My laundry room is more of a laundry closet- It needs organizing, shelves, paint, and something to help with the fact that the doors do not fit on the from of the closet with our front load washer/dryers! Talk about a pain when you have to wait to do laundry until the baby is AWAKE???? This would be amazing.

  257. Also Pinned this awesome giveaway!

  258. With $500 I would make a laundry area, replacing the ripped flooring, new paint and putting storage as there is none at this point.

  259. I’d spend the money adding storage for sure! Right now everything is piled onto the dryer.

  260. I would use the $500 to organize my laundry/mushroom!
    I need a better cubby system:) and if course a little
    Bling and a chandelier never hurt either:)

  261. Also pinned this!

  262. Andrea Masterson says:

    My laundry “room” is just a corner of my (unfinished) basement. I would love to spruce things up and actually finish it so that is an actual “room” to do my laundry in.

  263. I would love $500 to re-do my laundry room!!! I have been wanting to do a make-over in there ever since we moved in 2 years ago, but I just haven’t had the money. It is very small, so $500 would go a long way! New paint, flooring, shelves, some cute decor, etc. Already know what I would choose!

  264. I would use the money to build a drying rack or better yet, replace my 15 year old dryer. It still works, but not that well anymore!

  265. I’d love to win to add woodwork and new paint to my laundry room, maybe even a cute chandy like yours too!

  266. Pinned it!

  267. I love the color of your room! I straight up need new appliances, so i’d go that route with this giftcard.

  268. Jerrica Davis says:

    We’re newlywed with lots of ambition! The way out house is set up most people use our side door that leads to the laundry room as the front door. We would love to update this room to make a better first impression of our house. We would take down the curtain we put up to hide the washer and dryer and replace it with accordion doors. We would add a new light fixture (currently one can light that has lost the outer cover, so it literally looks like a can in the ceiling), fun paint and replace the ugly stone patterned lenolium flooring. We have worked hard on the rest of the house but the laundry room has been neglected. I think it’s time it gets some love! Please pick us! Thank you so much for reading!

  269. I would love to repaint and add shelves to my laundry room! :)

  270. Cathy Boeche says:

    I would love $500 to spend at Home Depot. My washer and dryer are in my garage. I would love to fix up their little corner with some shelving, a cute rug, matching hampers, etc. to make it a more cozy place to work in. Thanks for the chance!

  271. I shared the contest on pinterest here!

  272. Brittany Nester says:

    As of right now, we do not have a laundry room :( we are buildings a room addition with the laundry included so the $500 would be an awesome way for us to get the laundry of our dreams! As we are currently on a tight budget. So as you can imagine $500 would be very beneficial :)

  273. Wow, so many things I could use that money for, but I think I would have to say garage organization/beautification.

  274. I would love to change out the light fixture and add some more storage for my brooms and mops and laundry board/iron.

  275. I have a few things for my laundry room makeover, but the final inspiration has not hit me yet. I would really like a pop of cheery color in the room. I have an antique ironing board and clothes dryer – the kind which opens up like a big fan? Sort of? And some antique clothespins and baby clothes. I’m still thinking.

    I do know what I want to do for my entryway project, though. Well, I have a couple of details to iron out, but I mostly have it. And I am ready to buy beadboard and 1x to beat the band. :)

    I think I would also buy a new grill. Someone stole ours when we moved a year and a half ago and it’s been two sad summers without grilling. I’m ready to have a grill again.

  276. Deb McKathan says:

    My laundry room is basically a closet with the washer, dryer and water heater in it. Teen nintsey….would love to redo it! Thanks for the opportunity.

  277. Brittany Nester says:

    I shared this giveaway on Instagram!!!

  278. I pinned your giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win!

  279. Boy would $500 come in handy for a new washer.

  280. I pinned this to Pinterest!

  281. Julie Stinchfield says:

    I am a frugal decorator so there is nothing I couldn’t do with $500!!! I would love to fix up my laundry area in the basement….it definitely needs help!

  282. Lucy Arnold says:

    My laundry room needs a complete transformation! I live in my childhood home which was built in 1960 and nothing has been changed in there since! Need to paint, add shelves, new lighting and organize!

  283. My laundry area is basically a oversized closet. I would love to better utilize the space and make it feel more roomy. I also want to paint it and get a new light fixture.

  284. Tricia Zmrhal says:

    So many things I could do with $500! I’d probably buy some power tools that I’ve had my eye on for awhile. We have a brand spanking new home that could use some personality touches with the help of those power tools and some trim!

  285. I need to put up a wall and some shelving since my laundry room is in the basement. The $500 would be a great help with that. Luv ur make over. It is more practical now. Liked the first one but it was more foo foo than practical !

  286. Better storage and paint!

  287. Shared ur giveaway on Facebook!

  288. I’d get new cabinet hardware and add a counter top area for folding!

  289. I would love to makeover our laundry area. It’s in the basement, so it’s not exactly the most inviting space! Maybe some shelving and some better organization. I’d also love to spend the $500.00 at Home Depot to redo our main bathroom!

  290. I shared this awesome giveaway via Pinterest:

  291. I’ve been DYING to make my laundry room more functional for years! Seeing all the inspiration on the blogs I follow as well as Pinterest! I need more storage, a fresh new color of paint and a little PIZAZZ since it is basically the room we enter the house through! I need this!!!!

  292. We bought our home in march and have since run out of funds!! Our laundry room could for sure use $500 to help it come along!! Currently it has no walls!!!! O.0 I would use the money for Sheetrock and supplies and a pretty new coat of paint!

  293. Just Tweeted!
    Now crossing every finger and toe!! Thank you for the opportunity!

  294. Your room looks amazing!!! This would be awesome to win! I would get a new Dryer that would actually Dry Clothes!!! HA!! I would love to repaint the area, and hang some better lights in the area. I have a Black and White Tv that works and use it when doing laundry to watch local tv. It’s awesome! I just wanna make the area brighter! It’s in the garage so Its just a little alcove that houses the washer and dryer. And we have tried fixing the dryer, but I think there is more to it! I have 2 shelves there that hold other things for the cleaning process, and other cleaning supplies. I want to make it more cheerful!

    Random Number Generator. BE MY FRIEND!!!

    THANK YOU!!!


  295. I would like to add a folder area and cabinets for storage.

  296. Meghan Bechtold says:

    The room looks great!! I would definitely benefit from the gift card to add more efficient storage in our small laundry space!

  300. I’m in the middle of a kitchen redo so I could definitely use $500 to spend at Home Depot!

  301. I would use the $500 to go towards a new washer and dryer!! My laundry room is the worst room in my home and it needs a good makeover, starting with new appliances!!

  302. I know I am very fortunate to have a huge laundry room but I have yet to do anything to it since we moved in our house over a year ago! The first thing would definitely be to paint. The oak cabinets are nice but I would love to see some great color in that room. I also hate the old florescent lights that scream ugly. Would love to find a cute chandelier like the one you have. I don’t mind the tile that is in my laundry room but my old ugly rug that is in there needs to be thrown out and bring a new one in. My laundry room needs lots of help and this giveaway would definitely help me out! Thanks for the opportunity!

  303. Alisha pearson says:

    Paint, shelves, storage, repeat lol. I have the dreaded washer and dryer in the unfinished dungeon basement, it’s cold, smelly and my kids are sure it’s haunted and there for are no help when it comes to laundry. I would also buy my very first ironing board and an iron that would actually be used for clothes. Ours is a gluey mess of craft projects and Girl Scout patch mess. Please help!!! ;) thanks!

  304. I would repaint, change the lighting, add a great rug and of those amazing deep containers!!!

  305. Shared on FB and pinned on Pinterest! Thanks again!

  306. Oh man, where do I Begin. I wouldn’t call my laundry room a laundry room I’d say it’s a torture box, haha. I have no shelves or cabinets just a lonely washer and dryer by themselves. Needless to say I would love $500 to spruce up that area and make washing a little more convenient and maybe even enjoyable!
    Thanks for this opportunity, I’ll keep my families fingers and toes crossed till we hear who the winner is.

  307. Dana Valle says:

    I would love to add cabinets and wainscoting to my laundry room. Thank you for the chance.

  308. georganna p. says:

    I would update our laundry room with nice shelves or cabinets above the washer and dryer. I’d add some type of organizational system for sorting, folding, and hanging laundry. And best of all, I’d pick a happy color and paint the walls!

    PS. I’ve reported on Pinterest!

  310. I’d use the giftcard to finish my bathroom first, but there would be enough left to make my basement laundry area a bit nicer. I’d love to have a place to put everyone’s baskets of clean clothes so they aren’t in the way until they get taken upstairs and put away.

  311. I could really use a little laundry room make-over.

  312. I posted this give away on facebook.

  313. Nina Schonherz says:

    I just moved into a home which I adore, but could use some TLC. I’ve made a list of “rooms to complete” in 2013, and my laundry room made the cut. I can already see the magic happening with a $500 Home Depot gift card. It’s not a very large space, and I feel confident Decorchick & Home Depot can help me out here;)

    I would also love a chance to post on my personal blog the before/after pics, story, etc…

    My laundry room needs a new light fixture some storage but most of all I ned a table or counter top to folder clothes on and something to hang the clothes on. I like to fold and hang the clothes in the laundry room and then take to the bedrooms but it is very difficult to achieve that with nothing to hang them on. I need help. Plus i would LOVE to have cute little chandelier in the laundry. And i need to paint. I also want to fake wainscoating or panelling of some sort. Whie on bottom and maybe a teal or turquoise on top. Wow…i could keep going about everything that it needs but I am not sure that i would have any money left over after buying the big items. I font know maybe HOME DEPOT will be having a sale that day. I need flooring as well. Oh, i almost forget…my dryer vent things keeps coming undone from the wall and it gets like a thousand degrees in the laundry room. So, to try to help some….i took off the doors and hung some curtains that i had with nails…haha. I am a broke college student with two kids and I make due with what I have. Anywho….i need a new dryer vent hose thingy. I know you are not actually reading this but I can wish that I have a shot at winning and could get that laundry room that I keep pinning ideas for. Does it really make you WANT to do laundry more. If that is the cae….then i really need a laundry room makeover!!! lol

  325. My laundry room flooded along with most of the other rooms last spring. I would use the 500 for new drywall, paint, paneling, and organizational shelves :-)

  326. tonia allen says:

    I put it on pinterest too. Good luck everyone!

  327. Paint and new cabinets for sure!

  328. I so need shelving in my laundry room. It is in the pass through to the garage with no space. I have some hooks up for jackets, but everything is on top of the washer or dryer.

  329. Love your new shelving. That is what I need in my laundry area, but I would like them to hold bins that sort my clothes by person. Thanks for the great tips and for the giveaway. :)

  330. Betty Baez says:

  334. Ashley Davis says:

    I’d love to move my laundry room from the unfinished side of our basement to our finished side. Much cleaner and nicer environment to do laundry!

  335. Oooh! My laundry room could use a nice countertop, organizing baskets, light fixture and a fresh coat of paint.

  340. I love the idea of adding a new shelf in the laundry room and those clear tubs are such a great an idea! I think we would use the money towards a new roof on our house before the winter hits. Not so fun, but it would be a huge help. Such a great giveaway!

  341. Molly Harris says:

    I pinned your giveaway on my Pinterest board! Thanks!

  342. Our laundry room needs an organizational overhaul! New shelves, a place to store shoes, etc! A giftcard would start by going to some new shelving and bins, and if there was anything left, maybe replacing the fluorescent light!

  343. I love the bright colors in the laundry room. Mine is so dull and unorganized. I want to paint and add a lot of organized storage – got to get rid of all those piles!

  350. Shawnee H says:

    My laundry room could use some color on the walls and more shelves!

  351. Sandra Lierle says:

    I was widowed about a year ago and have lots of projects in my house that need work done. Mostly started but no money to finish them. I could do lots of the things in my laundry room that you have done here if I had money. But I could really use the samples of tide also. I am raising or tryig to, an eight year old granddaughter with very little income so anything would help at this point. But by the grace of God we will be fine.
    I also want to say that I love your blog and plan on visiting often. Lots of great beautiful ideas!
    Wish I was more talented!

  352. We are in need of a coat of paint, a rug (for the cold floor), and some storage all in our laundry room!

    I’d use the gift card to get a head start on our kitchen cabinet redo! :)

  360. We just moved and bought our first house! It’s small and charming (another word for old?) and has A LOT of DIY projects. With a Home Depot gift card I could do a thousand things! Buy paint, bead board, lawn mower…and everything in between!! Pick me pick me!

  361. I’d use the gift card for a new washer and dryer! We need it with five people in this house! :)

  362. I just pinned it and here’s the link to my pin:

  373. Kindra R. says:

    First and foremost I’d like to figure out what is leaking in our laundry room, get that fixed, then buy a new washer and dryer (ours our 15+ years old). I’d also love to have some shelving about the the washer and dryer so I have a place for our detergent etc. Oh man, and if money allowed I’d also like a folding surface somewhere. Great giveaway. Thanks for the chance.

  374. Sarah Thompson says:

    I would love to add some cabinets, paint and add a nice light fixture!

  375. I love your laundry room! Is it okay to use the $500 on something other than my laundry room? I would use it towards a new refrigerator!

  376. I have a laundry closet, but it sure could use an update to help out with more storage. It was painted with mis-matched paint and ugly wallpaper border 10 years ago. Time to make it pretty. And, a chandelier would make it perfect for me in a house of guys.

  377. I would use the money to put new doors and shelving in our laundry area.

  378. Lady Delores LeBoeuf says:

    I NEED an upstairs laundry, instead of the basement. So if I could steal a spot in the garage & create one- I would be happy. I think $500 would just about cover that DIY project;)

  382. Oh where to start? My laundry room is in the basement of our 80 year old house, lit by a bare bulb and surrounded by unfinished walls. $500 would go along way in transforming this dungeon into a proper laundry space!

  383. Chelsea o says:

    I would paint my laundry room for sure! It’s combine with my pantry…really small….so iowuld maybe try to do something fun with that too

  384. I would love to add some cabinets to my laundry room. Currently it is a bare space with no storage other than the tops of the machines, so it can get really cluttered at times.

  385. My washing machine is 35 years old…. boo.


  386. Tam Wright says:

  398. Tari McDonald says:
  399. Leslie Keenan says:

  423. I want Martha Stewart organizers for my laundry room.

  424. We just remodeled our laundry room last year so it’s functional and huge. Yay! But we haven’t quite fiinished the decorating part. We have a salvaged mantle that we plan to hang above the washer & dryer, similar to your shelves. I don’t know what in particular I’d buy, but good grief! Is it possible to walk into Home Depot and NOT buy something? :-)

  425. Jenny Stanionis. says:

  434. maureen mcgraw says:

    I LOVE THRE COLOR. So cheery, bold and bright. I am also a TIDE devotee. Can’t see why anyone would use anything else. Now how to use $500- I just purchased my first washer and dryer-no more running to the Laundromat. I still need shelving. I also need desperately to replace my front storm door, so the $500 would go a long way toward funding those 2 major Home Depot projects. Already painted the area a bright cheery yellow.

  435. My laundry room is on my list of rooms to do. Has to be taped and mudded, painted, etc.and storage installed. Love the orange and aqua colours – so vibrant

  436. Allison Jacobson says:

    I am in the process of buying our first house and have SO many ideas from your blog of what I want to do once we move in! Thank you for that!! I would love to do most of what you did with yours! Especially the paint, shelves and organization! Your laundry room is gorgeous!

  440. I would like my laundry room to flow be more organized and pretty. This is an awesome giveaway!

  441. Mary Stewart says:

    I’d use the $500 to CREATE a laundry room! My washer and dryer are currently located in my garage. I’d love to put up some walls to separate it from the rest of the garage. Really, really, really, really hope I win!

  442. I would love to add some flooring to my laundry room, paint it of course and add much needed organization!!!!

  443. I would absolutely be thrilled to win this giveaway!! My laundry room could use more storage!! I’d love to be able to construct some sort of folding table so I can just wash, dry, and fold all in one place!! I also pinned this giveaway on Pinterest!! Love!!

  444. I have great ideas for my laundry room….starting with installing cabinets where there are currently just racks and perhaps new flooring. I spend a lot of time in that room so need it more organized with eye appeal!

  450. Emily Foster says:

    I have a big counter with cupboards underneath and I would like to take the shelves out and be able to slide laundry baskets full of dirty clothes under the counter so that I can get to it to use it instead of it being the catch-all spot in the house. I may be able to tame mount-wash-more if I actually liked my laundry room.

  451. My laundry room needs new cabinet doors, an updated overhead light and is desperate for a new coat of paint.

  452. Your laundry room looks absolutely amazing. We are expecting baby #2 in two months….$500 would be spent to help finish the guest bedroom in our basement to make room for our new little one. We are at Home Depot practically every day! We still have a long way to go…floor, trim, electrical, etc…. We certainly love Home Depot (and they love us right now)!

  453. I have painted my laundry room, but it is BLAH, I would love to put a locker system in there so I could be more organized. And a good shelving system. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win this fab makeover for a room that is often neglected.

  454. I have been saving for a washer/dryer all in one unit. This would get me that unit. I am all about the tiny house movement and this would fit in it perfectly.

  455. I would love to add some storage for my mops/brooms etc so they aren’t out and visible. I would also like to add a countertop across my existing washer/dryer. Maybe jazz up the room with a fresh coat of paint!

  460. Rebecca Monce says:

    Our laundry area is in the basement. I actually just finished transforming an old cabinet into a laundry station. I also plan in hanging an old ladder from the rafters for a place to put the things that get hung. If I won I’d use the gift card to buy a shelf for detergent (I want the top of the laundry station clear of stuff so I can fold there) and paint.

  461. I would use it for cabinets above the washer and dryer! Thanks!

  462. I would love to redo my laundry area!

  492. Michelle Brown says:

    I have front loaders, and if I won I’d use some of the $500 to build a nice counter top over them so I could have a better folding station, so loose socks and wash cloths, etc. won’t slide over the back of them.

  503. I desperately need shelving and a new coat of paint!

    I love it when people are not afraid of color. I personally can’t wait until we stop renting so that I can paint. You do an awesome job.

  510. Natalia Magdalin says:

  514. Whitney Paddock says:

    I’d love to paint my laundry room and add some simple storage to hold my laundry supplies, as well as reorganize the closet in my laundry room so it can serve more of a purpose than just a catch all for all of the odds and ends :)

  515. I would love the $500 Home Depot gift card to use in several rooms of my house! I would go crazy shopping with it!

  516. You must be reading my mind!!! Not even three seconds before I logged onto fb, i was researching cabinets vs. wall shelves for redoing our laundry room in the near future!!!! Yours looks great and I love how bright and colorful it is! I would repain ours, white with an accent of surfer blue on one wall. Add shelves or cabinets, and make it more effecient, since it’s a dump currently! Thanks for the giveaway and again yours looks amazing!

    • I’m stoked,It’s right on time! and nice colors ,@ Decorchick ..she thinks of everything ,best tips.

  517. I would use the gift card on new lighting and flooring! We started the makeover and its looking great but could use some finishing touches.

  518. We need to rebuild our laundry space to be able to fit a drier in next to the washer. $500 would be great to have!

  519. Amber Heckler says:

    Here is the link to my share on Pinterest:
    Thanks again for the awesome giveaway!!!

  520. Since my laundry room and guest bathroom are essentially one room with a door separating the two, I would paint both room, update the flooring througout and then put cabinets above the washer and dryer. There probably wouldn’t be much $$ leftover, but a new vanity for the bathroom would be great.

  521. My laundry room is a pass through and there isn’t much I can do to change that but I’d love to paint it a bright cheerful color. Right now it’s wood paneling and without a window it’s pretty dark. Paint would certainly help brighten it up.

  522. Shared on Pinterest!

  523. Enjoyed viewing the Laundry Room ,by Decorchick! I’d appreciate an organized room to wash and dry ,with proper lighting and organization ,hope & wish to win $500. for a make over ,indeed.

  524. Leah Nelson says:

    Thanks for the inspiration! We just moved into a new construction home and I am excited to personalize our laundry room. It looks to be about the same size as yours. We did front loaders without the pedestals and we plan to add a countertop for folding and some cabinets above. It would be fun to do a great pendant or mini chandelier and a fun paint color on the walls. I am thinking a a great turquoise with white cabinets and a butcher block counter top! Love the giveaway, hope we win because we could use!

  525. Jenny Brown says:

    I’d love to get a new washer and dryer, although I know $500 wouldn’t even begin to cover that! I’d like to paint, redo the shelving, get new décor, and reorganize the whole thing!

  526. Linda Owens says:

    Laundry room where I live is an antique…I really love the pale corals and Tiffany Blues…:)

  527. We have a very small spare bedroom that just ends up collecting junk, and we are wanting to turn part of that room into a laundry room. It’s currently I the basement, but not one of those nice finished basements you see on tv. It’s a little more like the type you see in scary movies. Anywho…I’d like to add a wall to make a small laundry upstairs, paint, add shelving, and a laundry sink. We are DIYers, so I’m sure $500 pretty much cover it.

  528. Too much I would love to have at Home Depot. To start with I can use a new light and rug for my laundry room.
    Thanks for the great giveaway. Love your storage area.

  529. I would get our bathroom done (FINALLY) & if any left over (hey, I can dream) I would paint/repaint rooms in our home. I would love to win this!

  530. I shared this on Pinterest

  531. I love your laundry room look! I would put it toward a new washing machine and light fixture. My washing machine sounds as if a fighter jet was preparing for take off during the spin cycle.

  532. I would use the money to finish our screened in porch that we have “mostly” done but are waiting to save more money before finishing the space!

  533. I would totally love to install a sliding pocket door into my laundry rroom. The builders didn’t leave much room for high efficiency appliances and I can hardly open the door all way.

  534. I have cabinets in my laundry room, but I’m liking the open shelf look. I’ll bet $500 could go along way to accomplish a whole new look!

  535. I would use the $500 to get a high capacity washer and dryer.

  536. Olivia Rubin says:

    Gosh $500 since I rent and am provided appliances I would give this to my sister and her husband. They are expecting a baby girl Oct 1st and the dishwasher doesn’t work, the microwave stops when the weather gots too hot, and the oven is from the 80s. But I will keep the Tide Detergent for me.

  537. The laundry room is now downstairs in the basement and I would like to move it to the third floor where the bedrooms are. $500 would help start framing and drywall for the room space!

  538. Olivia Rubin says:
  539. Debbie Wilson says:

    I love the chandelier and your carpet!! If I won the money I would redo my cabinets above the w/d and add more shelving so I can use cute baskets!

  540. I would love to put it towards a new HD washer and dryer.

  541. My laundry room could Definately use new flooring!

  542. Jennifer C says:

    I would love to paint the cupboards and walls in my laundry room and hanh something so I can hang our shirts that don’t dry!!

  543. My laundry room is a sad little cave in the unfinished part of my basement. I’d love to clean it up with some paint and better flooring, install a new light fixture, and maybe even install a dropped ceiling. And of course, more shelves! We can never have enough!

    Fun fact: I have those same brackets from Home Depot. I bought them for a project that got scrapped, but they are so cute that I’m trying to find another use for them.

  544. I would totally upgrade the paint, rip out the shelving and install some beautiful cabinets to “hide” my cleaning supplies!

  545. Michelle Smith says:

    We started redoing our laundry room, but ended up stopping. I’d love to use this money for a new ceiling, some storage and new lighting.

  546. Michelle Smith says:
  547. Sue DeChant says:

    Wow could I use $500 for my laundry room! It needs some mechanical updating, and if there’s anything left, some paint and organizing too.

  548. Stefanie Gladden says:

    I would love to redo my whole laundry room, I’d love new washer & dryer. i’d like to put in some storage shelves for organizing instead of having everything all cramped up in one space! i’d love to repaint the walls too

  549. Stefanie Gladden says:
  550. I like your colors. The laundry area is our next project. I need shelving, paint, and would love to get some of that epoxy paint for the concrete floor. Also need a utility sink, and some storage/organizing mounts for irons and ironing boards, and some ceiling tiles. :)

  551. Shirley Casciola says:

    With $500 from Home Depot I would paint my laundry room and also buy a pretty rug and a new light fixture.

  552. Patti Sampson says:

    I am currently living in an apartment….no storage and VERY small laundry. I would use the $500 for organizational tools for the laundry room (bins, baskets, shelves, etc). Thank you !

  553. mary fields says:

    I don’t actually have ahome now, but my sister desperately needs to redo her laundry room. It’s junky and boring! Maybe some paint, a few shelves, baskets and cool art!

  554. mary fields says:

    Pinned and shared on FB. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  555. Praying to win!! Ever since my kids were born – one with a disability and I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, I have not been motivated to decorate. I need that extra push and help, and maybe this would be it. I can’t imagine anything more rewarding than a house that I love. I so need the help to get there!! Praying!

  556. My laundry room has beautiful silver Samsung set, but what is so depressing/sad looking are the walls…paneling…yuck! So,if I won, I would finally get the room painted, new rug, shelving above the washer/dryer, some cute art work, and new lighting! I would LOVE to win. My Samsung set deserves to shine like it should…in a beautiful room. Thanks for the chance!

  557. I would so love to win! We had a pipe burst while we were away. Everything has been repaired, but now we need paint, shelves, flooring and just anything besides plain sheetrock and bare subfloor :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  558. Courtney Taylor says:

    What an awesome giveaway! Thank you! I would use the gift card for my moms laundry room. It honestly doesn’t need much, just some storage solutions, but her kitchen? That’s where the real money would be spent!

  559. Courtney Taylor says:

    I pinned this giveaway at Courtney Taylor {snickerdoodlesandtaylortots } on Pinterest! :)

  560. Jeneane Cosby says:

    The first thing we would do with the $500 dollars is finish painting the room for our first baby. We would also get the hardware and items to finish the DIY nursery furniture we have started. Anything that is left would go toward finishing the several other projects we have started around the house.

  561. What an awesome giveaway!! My laundry “closet” needs a total overhaul. The dryer, which came with the house looks like its from the 70’s. And the way the bi-fold doors to the closet are configured, you cannot get the dryer door all the way open. Fortunately I have two small children who think its fun to get in there and get all the laundry out of the back of the dryer because I cannot reach all the way to the back with the door only half way open. I did cover the shelves with some cute contact paper that dressed them up. But I love the idea of doing a stencil or wall paper on the walls, or a bright fun color you wouldn’t use in a larger space.

  562. Patricia Cook says:

    I would love to put tile in my laundry room, or paint a couple more rooms in my house :) Thank you!

  563. Dawn Cherry says:

    I would love to add a new light fixture and shelving to my laundry room. I’d also love to redo the floors

  564. I would love to add some nice shelves and cabinetry in my laundry room. Thanks for the chance to win.

  565. Dawn Cherry says:

    I shared on Facebook :)

  566. Sara Johnson says:

    I could use some better organization in my laundry room, and our garage needs some serious work. $500 at Home Depot would do wonders at our house!

  567. Sara Johnson says:

    Pinned it!

  568. We are planning to transform our laundry room into a laundry/mud room – removing a storage closet, purchasing new stackable washer & dryer, building a bench, etc. So, a gift card to HD would be amazing!!

  569. Lidy Caldera says:

    I would LOVE to win the $500.00 gift card to The Home Depot! I’ve been wanting to paint my wash room for so long. I have a few colors in mind so each wall would be a different color. It’s outside so I can be a little crazy. :)

    Your wash room looks great! I love the color you chose.

  570. Thanks for the give-away! I would love to put it towards re-doing the dryer vent pipe. The builder did a sad job when he installed it. The dryer tube slides off the wall vent thing – you can tell I know my terminology, eh? :) I’m often hanging over the back of the dryer putting it back on. This would help me not be trapped behind the dryer! :)

  571. amy pugmire says:

    I would love to add some shelves and some hanging racks. I really just want to get it organized. It is so cluttered. I would also love to brighten it up with some paint. I would love to put it towards a dryer :)

  572. Also, pinning to Pinterest!

  573. amy pugmire says:
  574. ELIZA ELLIOT says:

    I’d love to buy a shelving unit and some wood for a table I could fold clothes on..Definitely need to organize more – oh and I want those side opening bins too!!

  575. I’d get new cabinets so I can actually use all that space above the washer and dryer for storage.

  576. ELIZA ELLIOT says:
  577. I would love to add some cabinets

  578. Corie ernst says:

    I’d love to paint my existing cabinets. The color currently looks like the yellow that years of cigarette smoke leaves behind. Paint and a nice throw rug would really cheer up my space :)

  579. Paola Norman says:

    I would add a large counter over my washer and dryer to fold clothes and to house laundry detergent. I would hide the washer hose and add a new light fixture.

  580. my laundry room needs a fresh coat of paint, and some storage. that’s what i’d spend it on :)

  581. My laundry room is tiny and also includes our hot water heater. I would love to get a new water heater. And I need to paint the room. I could use the money to put towards a new washer and dryer. I guess I need it all.

  582. Anonymous says:

    I would use for closet shelves for my master bedroom!!!

  583. I need a new dryer, and shelves to make my laundry room function more efficiently!!!

  584. I would paint it and add a shelve and some pretty storage boxes to hide laundry items, I might renew my dryer :)

  585. Nevelyn Schooler says:

    I have a large laundry room. I would like to have a built in table with cabinets underneath. I could use as a folding table and then as a craft table. The portion in front of a large window, I would like for the table to be lower where I could keep my sewing machine out.

  586. carol roberts says:

    well id buy a new dryer im sure and then id like to spend the gift card on storage items and a sorting table that folds up that would be nice

  587. carol roberts says:
  588. I would love a new washer and dryer that are more energy efficient. I do at least a load a day and with a larger capacity set I could spend more time doing things with my family.

  589. Goodness. Love you new Laundry Room. I would probably replace as much as I could from the floor up. Awesome giveaway. Thanks

  590. pruttybird says:

    My laundry room needs a complete overhaul. It’s definitely become the dumping ground for all things nobody knows what to do with. Thanks or the chance to pin :)

  591. Heather D says:

    I am feeling totally inspired after looking at your laundry room. My laundry room is functional at best. It sits on the main floor just off the kitchen and needs a makeover. I never really thought of adding color (currently it is beige) and decorating it a little. Thinking about running out to Home Depot to grab some color swatches today!

  592. pruttybird says:

    I pinned the giveaway :)

  593. Elizabeth G. says:

    I would use the $500 to paint it and add storage.

  594. Elizabeth G. says:
  595. George Ann Over says:

    My laundry room is in the midst of a redo and the workman stopped showing up leaving the room unfinished.. The HomeDepot gift card would certainly help. I need paint, cabinet doors, a wash tub: the list goes on. Thanks for the opportunity to get it done.

  596. Just pinned your Giveaway to my board. My laundry room is in need of so much help…..I don’t know where to begin but it would make a lovely start!

  597. Daphne Murray says:

    I would use it to put new flooring down and I really need new storage.

  598. It would be so awesome to put some shelving in my laundry room. The ‘what else can we put on the dryer’ game is getting real old. :)

  599. I would use the card for new flooring and a wash tub.

  600. Valerie Scherrer says:

    I would get a top loading washer and a nail gun.

  601. Heather Dundore says:

    I’d love more functionality and beauty! Impossible? I used to think so, but now after seeing your re-do, I think not!

  602. mary eguia says:

    Need to win.I do not have a aundry room.W/D are in the garage.In Florida is sooooo hot to do laundry in the garage.

  603. Candice May says:

    I would love to redo my laundry room. I would put up shelves and paint because these white walls aren’t cutting it. I’d also like to lift my washer and dryer off the floor a little, they sit too low

  604. Candice May says:

    Pinned on Pinterest!

  605. Our washing machine just broke yesterday, so I could really use a Home Depot gift card to buy a new one! :)
    Other than that, I’d love to add a drying rack and a place to hang clothes in our laundry room.

  606. Lisa Antaya says:

    I’d buy some paint to jazz up my laundry area, then get some shelving with the hanging rack below. I’d get some great organizational bins like Decorchick’s, and stock up on Tide!

  607. Would love to win this! There is so much I could with the gift card. We are remodeling my grandparents old house built in the 40’s, so while it has great bones, there is a lot to be done cosmetically. Would love to add some rugs to our laundry room and dining / living room. Our hardwood floors are great, but can be a little cold for little ones’ feet in the Winter. Thanks for such an amazing giveaway! : o)

  608. Oh this is awesome! I would totally use this to get some hampers for in the laundry room and a better shelf with more organization possibilities and maybe some baskets to put on those shelves.

  609. My Mom in her elder years is coming to live near me. Would love to have it to help her settle into her new home.:)
    Thanks for the chance!

  610. I love my laundry room, it just became mine after being my grandmothers for the last 30 years. It’s a great space with a huge window & a desk. However, it’s stuck in 1982! I would take up the linoleum floor, peel off the flower wallpaper, remove the flourescent shop light & scrape the popcorn ceilings! With a new floor & some paint, I could add window treatments to make it a brand new luxurious space! I find inspiration on this blog constantly, thank you for sharing!

  611. My laundry room is so scary! It is in the drab basement and dark and lonely! I would love to make it a room I would feel comfortable spending time in.

  612. New cabinets and shelving in my laundry room! Maybe even an area rug to brighten up the space! Hope I win! Thank you!

  613. I would love to add shelves, add new window treatments, paint, and storage for everything you need so it is out of sight but close when you need it. Your laundry room is gorgeous.

  614. I plan on painting my cabinets and maybe taking the doors off and using baskets to hold things. Oh yeah – i want some of those rubbermaid bins.

  615. JESSICA C says:

    We always have a never ending list of projects in our home… that $500 could really hit the spot!!

  616. I have a laundry closet with no space to put a laundry basket. I planning on putting up a counter over the machines, some cabinets above them, paint and replace the accordion doors.

  617. Kristin M. says:

    Paint, shelving and a small chandelier! As much time as I spend in there, why shouldn’t it be fabulous! Your room is so bright and cheery – love it!

  618. I would love to add shelving (like you did) and those bins would be amazing to have. And I would love to paint and make it look pretty-then maybe I wouldn’t mind doing the laundry so much! ;)

  619. I posted it on pinterest.

  620. I would love to put up some shelving and completely overhaul the whole space… sigh :)

    thanks for the opportunity, this is a great giveaway

  621. and i shared it on pinterest :)

  622. Wow!! Where to start!! With two teenagers they just throw everything! I Would start with fresh paint, shelves and hampers! Could I even put a chair in there to hide??? Nice folding area and lots of storage!!!
    Thanks so much for all your wonderful ideas!!

  623. We have a list of projects to do and updating the laundry room is one of them!

  624. Heather L. Davidson says:

    Heading to my baby shower right now and I dont think I will receive the dishwasher we so desperately need. Would love to stock up on tidefree for babies and be able to sanitize her bottles too while the laundries going.
    Fingers crossed and I told Little Miss to cross her toes too!

  625. Heather L. Davidson says:

    posted givewaway on facebook publicly as Lola Davidson

  626. Amanda Hoffman says:

    i would paint the walls and add new shelves

  627. Rebecca V. says:

    What would I do with $500 for my laundry room? Well, let me just tell you how much I hate my laundry room. It is more like a walkway out to the back door. This hallway has a little bump out large enough to fit a small washer and small dryer. I have one shelf over it. What I would do, is load that wall with shelves and totes so that I can actually use my laundry room/hallway instead of having to move my stash of crap from the washer to the dryer to the washer, etc. Then maybe I could actually open the door, since it wouldn’t be blocked by all the laundry supplies on the floor behind it. Ahhhh, I can just imagine, and it gives me peace. :) So basically, I would be purchasing $500 worth of peace. Yes, that would be nice. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  628. I would love to win a $500 gift card to Home Depot to start my bathroom make over. I would put it towards some pretty new sinks and cabinets to put in there.

  629. I would love to use the $500 gift card to redo my laundry room! First I would take a cue from Decorchick and find a nice cool color to brighten it. Then add some shelves and if I could talk the hubby into it, possibly redo the floors. It would be wonderful!

  630. Shared this great contest on facebook!

  631. I would love a $500 gift card! I am dreaming of white cabinets above the washer and dryer along with a drying rack. I’d love some storage opposite the machines as well. Oh and a counter top above the washer and dryer for folding and to prevent things from rolling behind the machines!

  632. I shared this awesome blog and giveaway on Facebook!

  633. I use my laundry room to do lots of other activities besides washing and ironing–pay bills, filing, calligraphy, computer and printing duties, and watch tv. I would love to add some items to organize the small room.

  634. Tiffany Galvez says:

    When we remodeled our old 1940s house before moving in, the only thing room that didn’t get touched was the laundry. It needs some serious help! I loved to be able to add a light fixture, some paint, some flooring, a rod to hang dry items, and some shelving. Also, my new deep freeze is going to make its home there I believe, so before it comes, I’d love a chance to give the room some TLC.

  635. Amanda Buccieri says:

    We’d love to put closet systems in & update our laundry room’s shelving systems!

  636. Amanda Buccieri says:
  637. My laundry room is tiny…there’s so much I need to do! Would love more storage and yet, more space. Thanks for the chance…

  638. winning would be a God-send! Closing on a house next week & while vacant the basement flooded so we are starting from scratch (which is very nice… not to have to conform to what IS there & implement all the great ideas I’ve collected on this brand new canvas!)

  639. Kyle Hosmer says:

    Shared on FB!

  640. Since the laundry room is shared with the furnace and water heater, it would be nice to get stackable w/d and then somehow add a laundry tub!

  641. Kyle Hosmer says:

    I would love to have cabinets and a bar to hang clothes on, as well a nice folding area.

  642. My laundry room needs some color and maybe some shelves. A dryer to match my washer but that can wait.

  643. Our laundry is in the garage but that doesn’t mean it has to be ugly. I have this dream of painting, breadboard, shelving and a nice rug to make the laundry area both functional and pretty

  644. Cindy Schwerdt says:

    I have been wanting to makeover my laundry room for years. I would love, love, love to have white cabinets for storage. Oh, also, a new light fixture would be awesome. My laundry room makeover just never seems to get done since the money always goes somewhere else.

  645. I would use the money towards a new washer!!!!

  646. Rea Hughes says:

    I love the uplifting colors in your laundry room.

  647. Sue Clark says:

    Your laundry room looks wonderful! A $500 gift card to Home Depot would be a great beginning to a room makeover!

  648. I would use the 500 to remove hideous blue wallpaper, paint, and tile the laundry room. It would be a nice start for an expansion into combined mud room/laundry room as our front loading machines can’t even be opened all the way in the currently confined space. With new baby will stock up on Tide Free and Clear also, if available. A wonderful prize. Good luck to all! Love the ideas posted here!

  649. Repinned on Pinterest.

  650. Jacqueline Griffin says:

    I would use the $500 to go towards my laundry room makeover. I am going to purchase a new front load washer and dryer with pedestals and have new cabinets built around it. This pin is my inspiration. Thank you so much for the chance!

  651. Jacqueline Griffin says:
  652. Oh goodness! With $500 I’d get in some trouble! We have a new home and a laundry list of projects to tackle, pun not intended! I love the extra storage and organization in there! AND I love what you’ve done with the room!!

  653. Paint and floors. The walls are a funky yellow color and the floor tiles are old and worn.

  654. Susan Christy says:

    My house could use some paint on the walls – white is too boring! Curtains, rugs and ceiling fans are needed too

  655. Bead board or wall planks. DIY pedestal, shelves, would love to win!!!

  656. Crystal Clayson says:

    I would love to have a good storage/shelving unit in my laundry “closet”

  657. I would use love to add crown molding, a nice wall of base cabinets or cubbies with counter top and a good quality utility sink, and expend into an adjoining closet space to gain a space for mud room cubbies and a bench.

  658. In my dream world I would hire someone to do all those piles of laundry. For the gift card, remodel my scary kitchen.

  659. I would LOVE to paint the cabinets white and add pretty turquoise knobs and a sparkly chandelier. As a mom with two boys and a pretty manly and opinionated man, I don’t often get to decorate anything girly…

  660. What I would do with $500. It would help jump start our much needed 70’s bath room. Throw out the blue toilet and matching sink…. Love Home Depot!

  661. Michelle Evans says:

    I’d re-do my whole laundry room, paint it, new shelves, rugs, the whole works! It would be wonderful!

  662. I would use the $500.00 to replace the flooring in my laundry room and also to paint a brighter color! Nothing has been changed in the laundry room in the 11 years we’ve been in this house; it time!

  663. My washer and dryer are dinosaurs that are nestled in a corner in our very unappealing basement. I would use the gift card to actually build myself a laundry space. Anything done down there would be an improvement.

  664. Our laundry room is in massive need of some cabinets. It’s a good size room, but only the washer and dryer call it home (not counting the piles of dirty, and CLEAN, clothes my 3 teen girls leave in there). A drying rack. Some shelves that are in reach. A counter to fold on. These are all on my to do list.

  665. I pinned the giveaway on my room inspiration board.

  666. I would love to us it to help me get better options for sorting and storage!!

  667. Shared via Twitter

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  668. I’d do plenty! We gutted our laundry/mud area this past week and $500 at Home Depot would go a long way towards construction and finishing materials– husband and I actually went on an HD date this afternoon to browse lighting, hardware, and shelf brackets. We saw those same shelf brackets and they had other neat ones too in the storage and lumber sections!

  669. I would use the $$ to paint the room and the cabinets, or ideally buy a new washer and dryer!

  670. Leslie Wise says:

    I desperately need a new dryer! That is what I would use it for!

  671. Can we use the $500 to get someone else to do our laundry?! J/k…. I would love most to keep the room more organized.

  672. I’d like to add some shelving and a new light fixture as well as a new rug.

  673. My laundry is in the dingy, cement walled basement… it’s just UGLY and doesn’t even look like a place where laundry would come out clean!

  674. I’d love to brighten up the space with a new coat of paint and add some shelving :)

  675. I would add a hinged shelf over my utility sink so I could have some counter space.

  676. I would love to organize my laundry room, some shelves, a hanging rack, maybe new paint

  682. Ann Ruggles says:

    I would use that Home Depot GC for paint, organizational items, trim and I’m sure I could think of a few other things!

  683. Ann Ruggles says:

    I pinned this also.

  684. I’d like to stack my washer and dryer, then build a cabinet along the side for storage – kind of like a pantry. I also change the light fixture – I love the one in your laundry room.

  685. Karen Tate says:

    My laundry is along part of a wall in the garage. I would paint the wall behind my machines to give it some definition, add shelving above the machines, add additional lighting so its not so dim in that area, and add a hideaway hanging rod. If there were any leftover monies, I would use those for organization items for my pantry.

  686. I pinned on Pinterest. …..if I won I would add shelves, get a new rug, and update the lighting

  687. Meghan Finley says:

  693. Sharie Giza says:

    What a Great giveaway! I would love to put drywall up in my laundry room. I love colored walls. I would put my washer and dryer up on pedestals. I would like it to be a room you dont mind being in, instead of a creep place nobody wants to go.

  694. Sharie Giza says:

    I pinned it!

  695. My laundry room needs help. I would like to have a counter top over the washer/dryer and closed shelving. Crossing my fingers.

  696. April Kerlew says:

    I have a horrible mish-mosh of makeshift storage and counter space. For $500 I could get some genuine matching gear! And maybe my teenagers would actually start helping…

  698. I would buy some paint for the concrete floor in my laundry toon and some shelves.

  702. Carla Blevins says:

    I pinned the giveaway!

  703. We are buying a main street building and are planning on fixing up the upstairs and living in it. Right now the laundry room is not a room I would ever want to spend any time in. Cracked and peeling linoleum, a broken window and don’t even get me started on the walls! I would love to put some wood flooring down, replace the window, give the walls a fresh coat of paint (I’m thinking mint, maybe) and add a fun little light fixture (a chandelier in the laundry room maybe?!!). Sure hope I win!!!

  704. I bought my washer and dryer at a garage sale…I would love to but a new water saving washer at least!

  705. I would buy some paint to touch up the outdated cabinets along with some storage bins!

  710. Organization—aahhhhhh!!

  711. Carolyn G. says:

    Just moved into a new place, and there are lots of things that need attention here. $500 would come in very handy to get started on the bathroom makeover or some of the fixes needed in the kitchen.

  712. I’d like to spend the gift card on some things for my kitchen.

  713. I would love to be entered into this great contest! If I were to win, my poor, pathetic little laundry room would get new storage in the way of cabinets, a fold down laundry folding table and some baskets/bins add to the storage cabinets and shelves and a new light fixture (the one in there is from 1989!) Oh! And a new coat of paint! OH I hope I win! Hugs, Leena

  714. My laundry room is pretty functional right now, so I would use the gift card to update my kitchen.

  715. I would use it for paint, new shelving, and cabinets! Thanks for the giveaway!

  716. I don’t have and official laundry room, I need everything! Really even a new washer! I have one speed slow! I need a floor, wall, outlets! I would love to just take that room and make it a official laundry room!

    Thank you LeAnn

  717. I have open wire shelving in my laundry room and I would love to replace it with cabinets.

  718. I would love more shelving and a sink in my laundry room.

  719. Emily your laundry room is so beautiful I would love doing laundry if I had a room like that! Unfortunately my laundry is in the unfinished part of the basement, it’s dingy and boring down there so I don’t spend much time down there lol! If I won this card I would use it towards my kitchen renovation to get a faucet and sink!

  720. I have been dying to redo my laundry room I’ve been waiting for the kids to go back to school. I would spend the money on shelving like you got and a new sink. As well as some new paint and a way to contain my sorting hampers.

  721. I would love to use the $500 towards a really fabulous grill for my husband since his birthday is coming up at the end of this month.

  722. I pin on pintrest!

  723. I would use it towards remodeling the laundry room in the new house I’m about to purchase!

  724. stacy grogan says:

    I would love to redo my laundry room, it’s in dire need, and Home Depot is the perfect place to start! Thank you!!!

  725. stacy grogan says:

    Also shared to Pinterest, what a great giveaway! Thanks Emily and Home Depot for helping so many amazing women bring their talents to the rest of us!

  726. I’d totally spend this on new light fixtures, including in the laundry room!

  727. OMG. shelves, shelves & more shelves. & some of those cute bins to put on all those shelves.

  728. I need this!!! My laundry room is so boring! Plus I have pink counter tops that clearly need an update. I would change the paint color, remove the doors from the cabinets, change out the light fixture(which looks like it belongs in a shop) and also add a a shelf above the washer/dryer. So much to be done, and the $500 would be wonderful motivation to get going on it!

  729. I just pinned this giveaway too. thanks

  730. Jennifer S says:

    My laundry room needs a good painting and better storage.

  731. Lisa Kubin says:

    Thanks for the chance to win!
    Lisa K.

  732. I would paint my laundry room and add an extra counter and if I still had money I would put in a sink!

  733. Totally just shared! Thank you!

  734. I want to instal stackables and add a bench/storage area. This $500 would be put to GOOD, quick use! :-)

  735. I desperately need shelving and some storage solutions in my laundry room. I love what you did with yours b

  736. Jessica T says:

    I’d add better lighting and a cute rug and some pedestals. Our laundry room is very dull and drab!

  737. Our laundry room is in our dungeon of a basement, complete with old red and black chipping linoleum floors. No walls, just concrete foundation! Its in serious need of being made “a room”!

  738. I would use it towards a new washer and dryer!! We NEED it!

  739. I have big plans for my laundry room! Relocating plumbing, adding a sink, cabinets, new flooring and new appliances will be the largest investments. I have my heart set on a nifty remade laundry/utility room with counter space for folding and an area for feeding my dogs! $500 would certainly help!

  740. I would use $500 to buy a new washer and new storage solutions for my laundry room!

  741. I would definitely be able to use that on my laundry room! I need to move my washer to the laundry room because as of now it is separated from the dryer and inthe kitchen :( it’d be super nice to have them in the same room! It could also use some fresh paint and shelving. Your wash room is looking fabulous btw ;)

  742. Oh my goodness, what I could do with $500 at HD! (and luckily, Tide is the only detergent we use.) We’ll be moving to a new state soon and every move seems to come with several hundred dollars spent at Home Depot to get supplies for the move as well as supplies afterward to get the new house up to speed. This would be heaven sent.

  743. Oh, fun question! My laundry closet’s doors have come off their tracks, so I’d repair those first. Then replace the shelves above the washer/dryer–they’re some sort of cheapo cork, and they’re heavily stained…possibly even moldy?! Ew. Thanks for your inspiring photos!

  744. I would like new cabinets or shelves in my laundry room.

  745. Our washer and dryer is the the dungeon.. (Our unfinished basement) I would love to give it an overhaul! What a change that would be!!! :)

  746. Whitney Hansen says:

    I’m buying a house so there are so many ways to spend that $500! New cabinets, painting, shelves, storage bins, basket storage, etc…

  747. AH This would be amazing to win! Our washer is on the fritz and money is tight so the $500 would be a huuuuuge help! But also I’d really like to paint our laundry room and add some shelves. My fingers are crossed!

  748. I pinned this giveaway!!!

  749. We have only lived in our house a few months and the laundry room is not one I have tackled yet. I would love to remove the pedestals and build a folding table over the washer and dryer!

  750. I’d redo my floor and paint colors, for SURE. The previous owners put up a HIDEOUS border around the top of the walls, and they only got about halfway done…so it’s hideous AND unfinished. Ugh.

  751. Definitely would use it to create more storage going up the walls! Great giveaway. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  752. Here’s the Pinterest pin url. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  753. Ashley S. says:

    I would use the $500 to paint my laundry room, add a pretty light, a new rug, and definitely some new storage containers!

  754. I’d do an overhaul of my laundry room. All i have in there is a gross wire shelf and my washer and dryer, but of course its the last room on the list for a design overhaul. I’ve been dying to paint, put in cabinets, a drying wrack, maybe stencil a wall. Oh the beautiful things I could do with $500!

  755. My laundry room is one of the rooms in our house that needs a complete overhaul. We bought a very dated 1980’s house, and the laundry room still has that awful orange/yellow laminate. I would like to tile the floor, paint the walls, put in a sink (the current one is yellow-ish fiberglass- yuck!), add moulding and shelves, a windowcovering, and a hard surface on top of the washer/dryer (front loaders) for folding clothes. Oh, and a few pictures on the wall wouldn’t hurt. :)

  756. J F Broyles says:

    I would use part of the $$ to hire a professional.organizer to redo my laundry room & use the rest of the $$ to buy baskets, shelves, or whatever the organizer said to do.

  757. My laundry room needs a complete overhaul. We added storage shelves when we first moved in. We also need new washers and dryer. I want to add a drying rack as well.

  758. abby caraway says:

    This is an amazing giveaway. If all things in life were as easy as you have made this to enter. So many appliances in our home could use updating and we practically live at Home Depot. We just put in new floors, toilets, shower and painted outside. Next up is the kitchen appliances. Our laundry room is cramped, but it works. Have been going thru tide doing washes after renovations.

  759. abby caraway says:
  760. With $500 I’d actually have room to decorate the laundry room- we just moved so all we have is our old washer and dryer. I’d get some baskets for organization, some wall decor, definitely choose a new paint color, and get a tilt out wall dryin rack for clothes.

  761. Wow.. since I have a laundry closet instead of a room, I would love to add some good shelves and really to utilize the space a little better than it’s currently being used.

  762. I would love to add some storage and organization as well as some nice cheery paint! Love your
    Laundry room.

  763. I wish I could just post a picture. it would say itall. my laundry Room is horrid. I truly need profession help.

  764. Holly Rice says:

    It is so funny and convenient that this contest is going on because my husband and I have been talking about putting up shelves in our laundry room and making it more organized. I would also like to paint and stencil the wall so there is something interesting to look at since I am in there all of the time!

  765. Laura Ablanedo says:

    i would definitely add flooring, some shelves, and some paint to the laundry room, and maybe do flooring on my room??! it need it. good luck everyone!!!

  766. Kim Sinclair says:

    New cabinets and shelving to hold laundry baskets. Paint, light fixtures, drapes…the list goes on and on.

  767. Leah Curtis says:

    I want to move our laundry room up from the basement into our upstairs hallway. It will be a big project but we are saving our pennies to make it happen!

  768. FLOORING!
    Our new to us home needs new flooring,
    The previous owner had tiles running from laundry room to kitchen and they are all cracking!

  769. Michelle Bledsoe says:

    I would like to paint the laundry room and add some new shelving to organize the room better and a new light fixture. I also pinned this this giveaway on Pinterest.

  770. I would put in a countertop and cabinets.

  771. Oh what I wouldn’t do to my laundry room! New floors, new walls, reorganize my supplies and clean up the clutter!

  772. I have a dew DIY projects going on right now (kitchen, bathroom and basement). I could definitely use the $500 Home Depot card.

  773. Love this!! I would like to take out a washsink/cabinet unit that doestn’t work well & make the space great storage.

  774. I might be really lame but we love in the frozen tundra and are dying for a new snow blower…$500 would really help with that! I may also get paint to update our laundry room or a few light fixtures to update our builder basic originals.

  775. Paint and shelving would make a WORLD of difference in my dungeon of a laundry room!

  776. Oh wow! What a tremendous blessing this would be to have the means to makeover my laundry room! First, it would need some colorful paint to brighten it up. Next, something would have to be done with the cement floor. Then, the lighting….how I love your chandelier! Finally, it would be time for storage, organization, & some decor! What a dream! Thank you for the opportunity!

  777. Posted on Pinterest! :) Thank you so much for you fabulous ideas!

  778. If I had $500 to spend on laundry room I would buy a cabinet, a shelf, and some paint. We don’t have a linen closet so a cabinet or a shelf would be very helpful.

  779. Andi Stome says:

    If I had $500 gift card I would buy a nice washer and dryer that actually work and fit in my laundry room. It would be nice to be able to get in the dryer without having to shut the door and cram in beside it.

  780. Tanya Crimmins says:

    I would add cabinets and hanging racks to my laundry closet. I don’t have much space or a real laundry room, so I can use all the storage I can get.

  781. We have a small laundry room so I would add cabinets to oragnize. It would be fantastic!! :)

  782. The original kitchen cabinets where transplanted to the laundry room, I would love to paint them and add some kind of design element to them.

  783. Wow! I would finish putting drywall up first! Then flooring and lighting and shelves!!! oh my! Love it!

  784. Pinned it on pintrest!

  785. I LOVE the orange you used – my fav color – and your beadboard, too!! I would probably get a cabinet with doors to put above the washer and dryer to hide cleaning supplies; I would definitely get a broom organizer for behind the door; I would definitely paint the walls, and frame our kiddo’s colorful artwork so we could enjoy it; and a new lighting fixture would top it off.

  786. If I won the $500 gift card, I would fix the hole in my laundry room ceiling :)

  787. Just pinned it!!

  788. I pinned it!!

  789. I would use the money for countertops, flooring or a patio set.

  790. Laura Jacobson says:

    Oh our laundry room is in the basement and very dark. I would love to paint the cement walls….and put a nice bright large rug over the cement floor! Then I would love to get some bright baskets and maybe a nice fun picture to hang up! Maybe a bright light to hang from the ceiling to get more light! I would love to spruce it up and make it bright and cheery!

  791. Brecah Helm says:

    I would use the GC for new paint and new flooring. Plus I would love to make a MIA sock station.

  792. I have the world’s ugliest flooring in my laundry room, so I would certainly change that! My cabinet is wonky and not so useful, so I would swap that out as well!

  793. My husband & I just bought our first home…the laundry area is in a shed on the patio. I would use the gift card towards building a new laundry room inside the house! We live in Arizona…this would be a “cool” gift!

  794. Michaela Hoenigman says:

    Storage! I would create more storage!

  795. Michaela Hoenigman says:

    I pinned it from your link!

  796. I would paint it purple so that I would actually enjoy doing laundry! I would add a rack for hanging clothes to dry and possibly turn the room into a half bath too! Of course the supplies would come from home depot!

  797. I pinned the giveaway!

  798. Considering I only have a washer and dryer there’s a lot I can do. If love shelves!

  799. Pinned the giveaway

  800. I’d love to win and change out the flooring and lighting in my laundry room.

  801. If I won $500 to Home Depot for our laundry area, (we have a hallway closet), I’d go crazy!!!! First I’d paint the walls a nice calm color. I’d take out the lonely too small and akward height shelf, and add in some high up cabinets and a shelf below. I’d add baskets – to be pretty but functional, and if I could pull it off, a prettier light fixture. *sigh* dreams, dreams!!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  802. I also pinned this, you can see it here:

  803. Our laundry room is in the basement and needs some major sprucing up.

  804. If I won the home depot gift card, I would use it to organize my crazy laundry room!

  805. Brandi Furgason says:

    I love your laundry room! I’m hoping to do a redo similar. I truly love the bright colors you have! If I were to win the home depot gift card I would rip down my water logged cabinets (from my poor attempt at plumbing) and put up a shelf similar to what you have with the hanging bar. New paint, shelving, rugs, and a utility sink to match.

  806. Brandi Furgason says:

    I also just repinned this!!

  807. Thanks for a great contest! I would start with the floor (no more cement please) and then on to the walls and get them sheetrocked!! Then the lighting would be next, along with some shelves and maybe a folding area too. Where to begin!

  808. Lots of storage and drying racks!

  809. Jessica Watts says:

    My husband and I bought our old 1960s made house knowing we would need to replace the unleveled, sagging kitchen floor. Time has passed and money spent on higher priorities. $500 would be such a blessing to receive. We would be most gracious for the help.
    I pinned your site on Pinterest :)

  810. I would totally redo all my shelving, it is also not strong enough to really put anything on, so I would do that first & if there was anything left I would put it towards some kind os baskets for the shelves.

  811. Fran Marie says:

    Fix the floor, walls and replace tiles Hurricane Sandy ruined!

  812. Benny Sequeira says:

    My kitchen needs revamping…..this giveaway would help !

  813. N Sequeira says:

    My entryway will go through a facewash with this giveaway….

  814. Jennifer Aldridge says:

    I’d love to add a hanging clothes bar above my dryer so clothes could be hung up immediately out of the dryer. And more storage is always a plus!

  815. Jennifer Aldridge says:

    I shared the giveaway on pinterest here :

  816. I’d love to make my parents’ laundry room a little more exciting and fun. (Or, as best you can do with a 124 year old house!) :)

  819. I pinned this on pinterest ~ msde1019

  820. Patti Wilson says:

    What wouldn’t I do to my laundry room! It’s the next room on my list to be renovated. It connects to a large mud room and I’d love to knock the wall down between the 2 rooms and make it one large, bright, inviting space. I dream about exactly what the room can look like… :)

  821. Andrea B. says:

    I have a large laundry room, but it definitely needs more function. Oh what to do, what to do?

  822. My laundry is a project waiting to be finished. I would buy some shelving. Love the clear containers! And probably some paint. What color though? Home Depot is a favorite place for this family!

  823. Laura Heron says:

  824. A.A.S. you wish says:

    This is soooooooooooo much I would do with $500 at Home Depot!!!! We moved into a new house about a year ago………it takes ALOT O MONEY to make it look like your own instead of the last owners!!! ( oh how they LOVED the color blue!)

  825. Would love to win this awesome prize! We’re currently renting & it would be great to have our own washer & dryer! Some paint to dress up some of the rooms would be great, too!

  826. Shared on Pinterest just now too!

  827. This is awesome, what a great prize! I just moved into a century home that is full of wood, wood, and more wood. I would paint my laundry room a bright fun colour, put down a new floor, get one of those great basin sinks with spray nozzle/hose, and install a lot of shelving to keep everything organized. Anything extra would be used to add modern touches to my cozy new home!

  828. Christine T. says:

    I would love to add storage in my laundry room, it right off the garage and very small so we walk through it all the time. Your laundry room is great, love the color!

  829. chaya fuss says:

    What a beautiful room! If I’d win I’d put more storage in my bathroom and get a sink and hose for outside and go a little crazy in your store- it’s one of my faves

  830. Jessica B says:

    I’m a new fan and I absolutely love all the great ideas you have!!! I bought a new construction home almost 3 years ago and my laundry room is a room that I just dread going into not because of the laundry to be done but because it’s a boring blank slate and I have no idea what to do with it. The other rooms in the house come first and because I have two small children, it’s at the bottom of the list of things to do. I am so inspired by the color, the shelves and the gorgeous chandelier and waincoting of your redo. Thank you!!!!! Look out boring old white laundry room, hellooooo new inspiration!!! :)

  831. I would get paint, flooring, counter tops and shelving to organize organize and organize.

  832. We are moving into a new house this weekend!! Shelving would be awesome in my laundry room!!! I’m sure I could find lots of other things I “need!”

  833. I would spend the money in the kitchen – our garbage disposal died a few days ago and our dishwasher has been barely working for the past year.

  834. I’d love to update my bathroom with a new toilet, shower head and fresh paint!

  835. I would add shelves, a coat of paint & some much needed hooks to hang dry clothes!

  836. Jenn McClearn says:

    I would use the $500 to get supplies to fix up my master bathroom it needs a lot of work! Love the Home Depot for home improvement projects, thanks for the giveaway!

  837. Kellie Byrd says:

    I would love the $500 to spruce up my laundry room with new paint, lighting & shelving!

  838. My laundry is in the garage and gets overrun by soccer bags, recycle cans, tools, etc… need some kind of organization system near the laundry area.

  839. Wow!!! I would love to win this!! I need to move my washer and dryer up from the basement and put it on the first floor – this would help so much!!! Great post and I love the changes you have done to your laundry room. Functionality always wins!!

  840. April was in CT now CA says:

    I’d love to have some storage bins and a nice rug for my laundry room!

  841. Jada Fingleton says:

    Oh my! Oh my! My mind is just running with the possibilities of what $500 could do. We, almost a year ago, moved into a fixer-upper so my poor laundry needs everything. But, I would start with a fun aqua color on the walls, white paint on the cabinets, an awesome graphic rug on the floor & definitely some more storage- because you can truly never have enough! :)

  842. Elizabeth C. says:

    Since Aug. 16th ‘happens to be my birthday’!!! I would love to be picked for this prize!
    $500. would buy a purty rug, some paint, new shelving, cute light fixture, and storage bins
    for my laundry room.
    That would just be fabulous! Thanks for the great ideas. :D

  843. Elizabeth C. says:

    And pinned….. just in case I don’t get picked. I will put it on my Project Honey-Do Wish List! :D

  844. id love to organize it! its our storage room as well and it needs some help!

  845. soha molina says:

    I don;t have a laundry room so I would use the money to start building one.

  846. I’d use it to make my laundry room into a real room and not just part of the unfinished basement with concrete floors and fiberglass insulation for walls.

  847. I’d like to paint, install new lighting, and put up lots of shelving.

  848. I would LOVE to have a cute Chandelier like you have and get some happy colored paint up on the walls.. I vet that would make it not feel like such a sad place to be in while doing your laundry. I have lots of baskets that are just sitting in the basement I bet it would be cute to chalk paint them, put a tag on them as to the contents and then have the shelves look cute too..

  849. If my husband and I get this house we are trying to buy we definitely could use $500 from home depot. The laundry room will need a shelf added and possibly cabinets and a utility sink, and the whole house needs paint. I hate white walls! Plus, outside the carpet, all the other floors are laminate.

  850. I would love to organize my laundry room and buy crates to put various items in.

  851. My laundry room is bland white… to add some color and get a new washer, also organize some n make it more functional. Since its between the garage and family room, everything gets dumped there. A home depot gift card would provide a great facelift……Botox for the laundry room ;-))

  852. Abby Rubin says:

    I still go the laundry mat because our old dryer broke. Though I could hang up the clothes, it is just easier to bring it to there. sometimes I wash at home and pack all the wet clothes up, other times it is just easier to spend an extra $5 and wash in one place.

    Would love to get a new washer/dryer that is energy effiecent.

  853. My laundry room is in my basement. I’d like to get more of it finished.

  854. our laundry is on the back patio, so we’d love to spruce up the area around it!

  855. I would love to add some wall cabinets in our laundry room.

  856. Heather B. says:

    I would spend $500 tearing down the existing metal shelves and replacing them with cute cabinets and open shelving. I also need a cute rug and light fixture and I want to paint some strips!

  857. Karinsue Caraway says:

    I would love to help my daughter out. There washing machine and dryer are on its last leg and they are expecting my granddaughter October 1st. This would help out beyond belief. Thanks for the tips on room updates and the giveaway

  858. My laundry “room” is a closet in the powder room, with bi-fold louvered doors. It’s not very attractive — the doors have to be closed when guests are here! Also, my laundry baskets are piled on the dryer and I have to reach around them to turn on the dryer.

    We have plans to add a tile floor (right now it’s plywood), some cabinets, painting the shelves, and moving a shelf so it can hold the laundry baskets. Also we’ll paint the walls and paint the walls of the powder room so the laundry closet can look more like a part of the room.

    We are hoping to get my parents’ front loading washer and dryer. If we do, those won’t fit with the doors closed so then we would need to take off the doors and probably cover it with a curtain, but my goal is to make it look really nice and polished, not like we just threw a curtain up there.

    We still have some designing to do, and very little idea of colors!! $500 would really help getting this to happen. :)

  859. I would spend the $500 on some much needed paint for a few rooms in the house.

  860. I shared this post on Pinterest.

  861. I would add lighting & cabinets to my laundry room. It is also in need of a new sink & a counter top! The possibilities!!

  862. Katie Ault says:

    I would use the money towards shelves to organize our laundry room and new lighting.

  863. Krystal D says:

    Our so called laundry room in our new house is in the garage. I would love to use the $500 gift card to build shelving and drying racks to give it more of a space other than just next to where I park my car. And I LOVE Tide. Tide pods are my favorite as I love the way my clothing smells after they come out all nice and clean.

  864. Kristen S says:

    This is amazing!! So many useful tips and ideas. I really use a makeover like this on my laundry room. Might actually make laundry less painful.

  866. Fresh wall paint, paint the cabinets, new mirror and light above the vanity (laundry/bath combo room).

  867. Kellie Wilson says:

    I would paint my cabinets Tiffany blue!

  868. We are hoping to buy a new house in the very near future, so I would use the money toward making our new house ours! New paint, new storage and maybe even some flooring! This would be amazing!

  869. Well first I would have to arm wrestle my hubs to keep the gift card. But I would love to paint my laundry room (and a good chunk of the rest of our home) and put a counter above the washer and dryer. :)

  870. I would start with a much needed new dryer. THen I would paint it a fun color to liven up our small space and add some shelves and the hangy things to hold the mop and broom! And you are right $500 aint no chump change!!

  871. With $500 I would buy new shelves and bins. Mine are such a mess and do not function well. I would also replace the flooring.

  872. My laundry room is pretty decent, but I’d love to make over my Mother’s. Her’s is pitiful!

  873. We really want to re-do the flooring in our laundry room. $500 towards tile would be great! I love all of the other tips included in this post, as well!

  874. I would use the 500 to make myself a laundry room! I currently have a cluttered open concept basement with the washer and dryer in the corner. It would help get some walls up and some paint /decorations!

  887. I’d probably brighten it up and add some shelves, it always feels cluttered in there.

  888. Oh, the projects I could do with a $500 gift card! I rent an apartment, so there is not a lot I can do. I do have quite a few pcs of furniture I would like to refinish and update. I would also purchase a serger sewing machine as my sewing machine was lost in a tornado.

  889. I’d get a pretty new chandelier, update the flooring and add some functional shelving. I NEED new machines, but that will be another day!

  902. Beth Lovorn says:

    PAINT the room…tired old white paint has got to go…..take down the metal shelf and hanging rack that the hangers never want to come out of and are too hard to reach, and put in a pull down folding area and new cabinet to hide the stuff we feel the need to hoard and stuff out there :-) whoohoooo!!

  904. Kayla Hood says:

    We don’t have a laundry room..we have a laundry closet! We are in desperate need of organization ideas and inspiration for a very small space. I’d LOVE to have a space to fold my clothes, instead of needing to use our bed to fold. By the way, I love your color choices!

  905. Tammy Schaefer says:

    New flooring and chevron curtains!

    if i won the $500, i would buy a new dryer because my current one takes 1.5hours to do a load of laundry. i would sheet rock the walls because my laundry room use to be the outside of the house, a porch maybe. i would finish it out and paint it a light, bright, airy color. build some awesome shelving and put a small chest freezer in. i love to diy so am sure my family can do all the work. it would be quite exciting to win this prize!!

  948. Amy Cohrs says:

    I would love to win the $500 gift card to help with repairs on our home! We bought a new home and it’s a cosmetic fixer. Can’t wait to give it some love so it will shine! Someday I want to paint our laundry room and the half bath off of it a tiffany blue shade, and paint the existing cabinetry white. We need a larger capacity washer and dryer too for our family of five. Thanks for hosting this contest, what a wonderful opportunity!

  949. I would use the gift card to put in a pretty, new, light fixture, some new shelving, and paint a pretty new color on the walls.

  950. Denice Hijab says:

    I love the colors of your laundry room. Nice. If I win the $500 gift certificate I will upgrade my laundry room, too.

  951. My laundry room is connected to my kitchen. I have always wanted to buy some kind of doors to make the laundry area it’s own separate room. Some nice shelves like you have would be awesome too. Right now I have wire ones and they are not very sturdy.

  952. Just went to HD and got some shelving for my laundry room. Unfortunately its unfinished (no drywall) and will remain that way but now I have some extra storage. I would use the $500 to update my flooring. I have been looking and looking at HD and I can’t decide!

  953. I’d like to get some type of organizational “stuff.”

  954. Oh my, the laundry room is in need of STORAGE in a bad way! It’s that “room”. Everything gets shoved in there from the kids baseball stuff, swim suites, wet towels, soccer to the point I have no where to actually do laundry. :) Thanks for the chance, fingers crossed for an amazing storage unit

  955. I would use the $500.00 towards carpeting my stairs. Thank you for the opportunity.

    Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  960. Sally Pagel says:

    Our laundry room is at the back of our garage. My hubby thinks it a great place to stash junk. I would use the money to get new flooring, paint, and add storage. And a up-cycled chandelier like all those cool laundry rooms I have pinned on Pinterest!!!

  961. amy betters-midtvedt says:

    My laundry room is a sore spot as it is also our first floor bathroom:-( I would LOVE to do something to separate the two…rig up a shower curtain or put in a counter top and bottom curtain? Doors? A cool light fixture? New paint? Great baskets? Help! Dave Ramsey won’t let me spend cash I don’t have so a gift card would ROCK!

  962. Julianne Johnson says:

    I would love to reprint, add storage and change the door! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  963. Our laundry room is also our utility room. I would put lots of storage in for this reason! I also think it’d be great to put a counter up for an area to fold clothing.

  964. I’m so glad I saw this post! I have deemed my next project my laundry room. It’s in the basement and we have concrete block walls and no ceiling (just beams, exposed pipes and wires) so I really have to get my creative juices flowing to do it on a budget. The rug and chandelier are a great way to glam things up. I’m thinking of a chandelier or pendant light myself. Love the shelf as well.

  965. My laundry room is in the garage and our dryer is broken.I have been hanging the clothes to air-dry for some time so it would be great to be able to purchase a new dryer!

  966. I would add some shelving on the walls.

  967. Jeanie Clark says:

    I would use the money for much needed storage! And since I am always doing laundry maybe some pretty paint! :)

  968. Love your laundry room! I would use the money to install some cabinets, shelves, and paint another color for the room. Since I am about to work in this room and make a big change, the giveaway would be of a great help!!!! Crossing my fingers!!!!!!

  969. Rosie Ornelas says:

    I would put in a new laundry room sink and purchase some sturdy shelves to keep everything organized. A clothes rod would be the icing on the cake!

  970. Ah….after reading your post….and seeing your very inspiring photos….I KNOW my laundry room lives in the dark ages!! So the Home Depot card would be used to treat myself to some fun color of paint…perhaps….turquoise! And new shelves….bins or baskets….and maybe…a chandelier! Ahhhh…..dreaming! Thanks for the tour…and give away!
