Mud Room organization

January 1st, 2016


I LOVE organizing stuff, and Michaels helped light a fire under my butt to get this Mud/Laundry/Office room all organized and decorated. Usually I can keep this room mostly functional, but crazy Christmas time made this room extra crazy… perfect for before pics! Last year for this challenge, I organized my craft room, and I’m happy to report that it mostly stays organized/clean as long as I’m careful during a project.


I love when a room is all done! The feeling is so completely different when I walk into the room, I just want to hang out in here all the time now.  If you’ve seen my previous laundry room, you’ll definitely see similarities here. Instead of a darker aqua, I choose a brighter mint for the cabinets. Now that its all decorated, the mint feels fresh and airy, I love it!


Michaels just launched a new line of storage and organization product called Cre8ted Spaces available in stores now and it has tons of different colors, bins and office supplies – with more than 300 new items in 4 coordinating colors, you have to check it out!


I used a bunch of the coral and aqua items from the Cre8ted Spaces and mixed them with some gorgeous copper baskets from the basket section at Michaels.


The aqua boxes look perfect in my mint cabinets (SW Mint Condition)


I also found this pin board at Michaels to finish off my desk, and lots of cute desktop items too.



I’m so happy to have this room all finished! I just need to keep it clean now!

    I have to say this makeover has been the most inspiring for my own laundry room makeover even though mine looks nothing like yours (and not as cool). But, just wanted to drop a note: Well Done!

    I didnt do a tutorial. I’ve painted two globes, this one I just painted the whole thing, and then I painted flowers around the words!
