Hiding an Ugly Laundry Room

Our laundry room is also known as the kitty potty. We can't' close the door to the room because the cats have to get in there. So for the past 5 years, I've had a curtain covering the doorway opening to the laundry room. The room itself is in need of some major help in the decorating department, but I'm holding off until the day our 15 year old washer and 20+ year old dryer finally stop spinning and I can gut the room and start from scratch. I was using the plain curtain below dividing the space from the kitchen. I wasn't really happy with the curtain. It was a pain to slide over when we needed to do laundry and the color wasn't quite right.

Then I found this shower curtain on clearance at Kohl's for 80% off. My mom bought it for me and although it is a tad too short, I love the colors and the design.

Since it is attached with shower curtain rings instead of a rod pocket like the former curtain, it is super easy to slide back and forth for carrying all those baskets of clothes into the laundry area.

I love the simple changes that make me smile.


  1. nice curtain! what if you accidentally washed a hammer or some plastic in hot water that melted everywhere? just a thought...

  2. I love when simple things make me smile, too. My laundry room needs a curtain in the doorway. Now, if I can find a good shower curtain...

  3. What a cute and simple change. Love it!

  4. Hmmm, Heather I might have to try that! I think these old washers and dryers were made to last forever because they just keep going! I have washed chapstick and my cellphone before though. They didn't survive, but the washing machine sure did.

  5. You can glue a strip a material on the bottom of the shower curtain to make it longer. I used Tear Mender to add length to two of my shower curtains. It is beyond favorite way of doing things.


I adore comments, thanks for visiting.
