Decorating Our Lake House on a Thrifty Budget: The Laundry Room

We have been slowly decorating our dream lake house room by room. The house was already beautiful and move in ready but I just want to put my own touches in each room. This will be our place to retire in a few years so it is a work in progress.

You can read my other posts about the other rooms I have done. I am a thrifty person. I love thrift stores and finding things on clearance. I hardly ever pay full price for anything.

This was our laundry room before. It was already nice before and has lots of storage but I wanted more functionality. I wanted to have an industrial shelf and we needed somewhere to hang clothes to dry and since we are on a lake, a place to hang wet swimsuits.

My handy husband made this shelf with some plumbing pipes and fittings. He cut the wood to fit, stained it then put it up. It’s decorative and functional. I think it fills the space in better and I have a place to sit some decorative things on. Before I had no surfaces to sit anything on.

He then made this industrial clothing rack out of a wood board, plumbing pipes and fittings. This wall was big and bare. This is a perfect spot to hang clothes to dry or swimsuits and towels.

This was a very quick, fun project. We got it done in one day. I’m very happy with how it turned out.
