Laundry Room Makeover - I hate to wash!

I got inspired by a laundry room DIY makeover on somebody's blog . I really should have remembered so I could put a link her...next time, right? Anyway, I hate washing (and folding) so thought I'd give it a try to see if it would entice me to WANT to do laundry.
UPDATE (9/15): Found it! Thanks, Blog Sis
Here we go...

Before (I'm so embarrassed):










After (with unused items from other rooms/closets):









$1 mirror from garage sale; baskets used to hold diapers when Symone was a baby; red rose topiaries from Bombay from 4 yrs ago just because; a half-*ssed wedding gift from 4 yrs ago(painting); Marble top end table given to me by my Aunt Bonnie; red christmas candle with snow man turned in; gold plated vase given to me in India; bottle of my grandmother's perfume

NOW -- I want to wash , but have no detergent *sigh* I can find ANY excuse!

Guess I'll have to hide the basket until I get some.

I WAS busy...but paying for it now. I can barely keep my eyes open.

Hey if you saw mine then you wouldn't feel so bad! You did a good job!

Thanks, LaKeitha. I think I'll paint, too, but at least I don't mind stepping into the room.

What a difference it makes with a few simple arranging tricks! Well done! And bet you don't mind going down there half as much now. :)

Thanks for the inspiration. My laundry room needs a TON of work!

I'm an oddball and LOVE doing laundry. And my laundry room is hideous! I will be redoing mine after the first of the year!
Great job on yours

My laundry room is almost identical to yours, and I have extreme envy right now! Thanks for sharing!

Great job putting that all together. Someday I'm going to show a picture of my laundry room and then you won't be embarrassed anymore. I promise.

You did a great job! The things we do to make everyday chores more enjoyable, huh? I am very flattered that I was able to inspire you. Before I forget, the $25 coupon from Goodwill is a promotion they do twice a year. However, they do offer a stamp card that they stamp for every $10 purchased you make. Thanks again.
