Today, I'm putting the finishing touches on my laundry room makeover. Yesterday I showed you how I updated the door knobs and other hardware on the doors of the laundry room. Today I'm showing you how I added some extra storage space with laundry bags.
I have a small laundry area with no storage. As a result laundry day usually looks like this.
I hate it. It's messy and we're constantly stepping over clothes. This pin on Pinterest was the solution I'd been looking for for my small laundry area.
Hanging laundry bags! I even found the exact same bags on Amazon! I also saw this idea on Pinterest for labeling the bags and thought it would be a good idea to label my new plain white laundry bags.

I bought this Avery iron on transfer paper. I didn't realize I had bought transfer paper for dark fabrics until I got home and didn't want to go back to the store to exchange it for the transfer paper for light fabrics. This transfer paper had a solid white background. It worked out alright, because it blended in to the white fabric.
I designed my labels in Mircrosoft Word. I played around with different font styles and sizes. It's also a good idea to print out your labels or designs on a regular sheet of paper and lay it out before you commit to printing it on your transfer paper. That way you can be sure about your design and not waste any of the transfer paper. I ended up choosing this really plain font because I thought it looked kind of industrial.
I printed it out and ironed it onto the laundry bags using the package directions.
