It seems like laundry hampers fall into two categories: stylish but ridiculously overpriced OR something that looks like it belongs in a dorm room surrounded by week-old pizza. So where do you find a good looking hamper on a student-sized budget? Right here, my friends.
I know it seems weird to put drool-worthy and linoleum tile in the same sentence (or post title), but I am not kidding around here when I saw that this DIY linoleum floor pattern looks really, really cool. It's perfect for a laundry room, or another small space with low foot traffic, and makes for a great weekend project.
Not long ago, when we shared our kitchen renovation with you, we left a little something out. When we began planning our new addition, we decided to add a laundry and mud room off the kitchen to create an entry point with storage and give ourselves the luxury of first-floor laundry. This room has absolutely been the best decision we made during our entire house project. It's simple and straight-forward, but it has brought a tremendous amount of organization and simplicity to our daily home routines.
I think my favorite thing about this laundry room makeover, besides the fact that it looks awesome, is that the homeowners did every single thing themselves -- and on a budget!
I've always loved the look of concrete countertops but am, admittedly, a bit intimidated by the intense mold making/concrete casting/everything-could-go-horribly-wrong aspects of the usual DIY approach. So when I stumbled across this DIY concrete countertop alternative, my jaw dropped. IT'S SO EASY.
Sheesh. Apologies to Mr. Shakespeare. Anyway, as you might know, our family is in the middle of a very exciting house addition (you can follow along in the Curbly House section of this site). A big part of keeping a large-scale project like this moving forward is the ability to make decisions (hopefully good ones) quickly without second-guessing yourself. Second-guessing means design changes, and that means delays.
One of the big decisions...

For most of us the entryway or mudroom is the first insight that guests have into our homes. While many choose function over form, there is no reason you can't have both.
Here's a collection of DIY projects and ideas to aid you in organizing or decorating some of cleanest and messiest rooms in our homes: the laundry and mudroom.
How to: Replace Your Household Cleansers and Beauty Items with Healthful, Homemade Options (with DIY Recipes)
Hello! I'm Rebekah from Potholes and Pantyhose where I share and photograph detailed tutorials of my DIY projects, recipes, photography tips and remodeling endeavors. I am in the middle of remodeling both our living and dining rooms.
This year, I've been on a mission to replace most of household cleaners and personal care items by my own homemade versions. I am concocting these household replacements with little more than what I have on hand or what I can find at the organic market.
Getting the laundry room ship-shape for spring will be a SNAP with these very clever hacks. There's something for everyone too. Woodworkers can go all out with Ana White's Laundry Basket Dresser plan, pictured above.
If you'd rather keep your tools in their chest, check out this super simple idea from Craft Blog. A 'blob' of hot glue was used to attach clothes pins to a tiled wall to hang dry those little items that get stuck in the dryer...
It's an essential part of keeping a tidy and fresh existence: Soap. Hands, clothes, dishes... they all need something to keep away the grime and germy germs (I have small children; I'm allowed to say germy germs). If you are anything like me and find yourself cursing money spent on soap and detergents when it could be going toward things that are way more fun than cleaning supplies, then you might appreciate these DIY soap recipes.
