Get the Look || Mud/Laundry Room

You’ve seen the transformation from totally blah to blissfully organized (IMO), so here’s a break down of some of my favorite details.



I had a hard time finding shelves that I liked, and even the shelves I didn’t entirely hate were not deep enough to hold most baskets. Falynn suggested I DIY this part of the project and her faith in me inspired me to head to Home Depot. I didn’t want this project to look DIY so when I stumbled across these beveled-edge stair treads (yes, these are meant for stairs!) I was sold. Some shelf brackets, clear-satin polyurethane, and wall anchors — I was in business.



I knew the look I was going for — white, natural, + clean. I’m also majorly crushing on greenery and bohemian accents these days. I think I achieved all that while still managing to keep it warm and functional. Rattan and seagrass baskets hide all of our mismatched towels, wall-mounted storage holds recycling, and I was even able to incorporate a custom print from our African safari!

I had these cast-iron hooks kicking around from our first apartment and had yet to find them a new place of honor. My girlfriend Alex encouraged me to give them a coat of gold spray paint (it takes a village people) and she wasn’t wrong!

This is one of my all-time favorite photos from our safari. It makes me so happy to walk by it every day. Ordering a 20×30 print off Shutterfly was going to run me upwards of $100. I began googling around and found Vistaprint. A promo code and $16 later I had my beautiful poster sized print.


My last project for this room is to replace the god-awful-one-bulb-builders-grade that is the ceiling light. That will happen in August when my dad is visiting (thanks dad!). For now, you can help me narrow down my options!
