Laundry Room Makeover

So I have always had an issue with our laundry room.  I know I should not complain, because I have a laundry room.  But it is on the verge of being a closet really.  I mean I cannot have the door open and open the dryer at the same time.  so I just took the door off and put it in the basement.  Well we just got a new warranty guy and since I complain to anyone that will listen... This time it paid off.  He has come in and switched the washer and the dryer.  This takes nothing short of a small army.  Movers, plumper, heating guy, movers again, someone to hang the door.  Really?  I think I could do all this by myself. Anyways the movers did not come back the first day. Well, they did but I was at the bus stop.  So the point to all this is I got the gumption to paint the laundry room.  But what color?  I was thinking red (mostly because I have a gallon of red).  Then my friend Leah said, "what about the yellow in the kitchen?"  I love that yellow but I was not sure that I had enough.  I still needed to paint by the garage door.  So yesterday I started to paint in the kitchen to see if I had enough yellow paint (and that project needed to be done for about months).  Well, I think that I already knew it, but there was not enough paint for the laundry room.  So I just went with the cappuccino color that is the main part of the house.  I think that it turned out great!  I also found a closet rod at Lowe's for $4.31, and I had this little cubby hangy thingy and the baskets already. 

Here is the garage door.
They still have not come back to move the washer and dryer or hung the door. But, last night I just could not wait any longer.  So I moved the dryer and folded some laundry that was still in the dryer when they moved it. I know what you are thinking, "Who is this girl who is doing laundry.  I thought that she hated it?"  I know and I probably will in a day or two.  But when it is in a newly painted laundry room who couldn't like it?
