21 Days - Day 1 Laundry Room

So I started my 21 Days of Organization today. I am starting with the laundry room (which is actually just a closet in the downstairs bathroom) because it was pretty close to being organized in the first place but I just made it look prettier by adding storage baskets to put the ugly cleaning supplies in so you don't have to look at them.

Here are the before pictures:

It is still a work in progress actually. We removed the doors when we moved in because of how far the washer and dryer stuck out and I love that there are no doors, it makes things much easier. I need to paint the inside of the closet green or yellow, put hooks on the wall to hang the Swiffer, long duster, and broom on the wall to the right, change the side the washer and dryer are on so that the doors don't open into each other, and build a shelf across the top of the washer and dryer so I can use it as a folding surface. We are also going to add another shelf in the shelving unit we installed so that we have a little more storage in there and we are going to add a light inside the closet area because it is so dark in that little room. We store the laundry baskets in there on top of the washer and dryer also but they are full of clean laundry... oh the joys of having a small child, the laundry never ends! I do so love the way it looks now without all the ugly cleaning supplies showing.

I bought all of my containers at Big Lots, Dollar Tree, and Target. They were all pretty cheap and it just turned out that they all were either green or yellow which is perfect because those were the colors I was going for because of the laundry picture above the opening to the closet.  I think it makes it a cheerier place to be too.
