Laundry/Mudroom/Workout Room/Pet Storage/etc.

Laundry Room Sign Art Print Picture Framed 36x6

I am considering redoing our "laundry" room.  Unfortunately, while putting some thought into this, I realized this room serves several purposes:
  • Laundry Room
  • Mud Room
  • Pet area
    • food storage
    • feeding area
    • litter box
  • Freezer location
  • Possible fitness room (the treadmill is currently stored here)
  • I would also LOVE to use this room as a sewing room-I'm such a dreamer!
Overall, the room is somewhat of a catchall room (aka "junk" room). 

I recently went shopping in Loveland, CO and became inspired while visiting the back room of a story called Cozy Cottage.  The room had a cream color and then some distressed looking furniture.  I realized a few things.  Number 1-I love that color for a laundry room.  Number 2-I would like a table for folding clothes in that room. Number 3-There is no way I could afford to buy the table they had displayed.

SO, I am starting small and hoping to get the room painted soon.  Once painted, I am planning to put up a witty quote.  I am looking at Wall Words Website to find something cute to put up there.  I've used this company before to put the following quote up in my bedroom:  "Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take but the moments that take your breath away."  I highly recommend this company (I don't get any sort of kickback for this.)  They are based in the US, female owned, and offer great customer service and the best product!  Unfortunately, I've experienced what companies who attempt to immitate wall words product actually deliver.

Anyhow, I would really appreciate any inspiration ideas for that room.  Here's what I've found so far...
I love the Laundry sign on the shelf.

I'm considering leaving in a cabinet that we have in that room and covering the lower half with a curtain.  Of course, I'd need to sew that and don't have a place for my machine quite yet.

I am hoping that with a fresh paint job and some more inspiration, I may actually start enjoying doing the laundry!
