My Makeover is finished!

I wanted to share my laundry room makeover.  My laundry room is right off of my kitchen and seems to be the "catch all" spot in my house.  I was so sick and tired of it, I decided it needed a junky makeover.  My mom bought this chicken box a couple years ago at Junk Bonanza and it's been hanging in her shed. What a shame.  So she offered it up to me when I said I was changing up my laundry room.  It hold detergent, softeners, dog food, bags, etc.  I LOVE it!  So don't let your chicken box hang outside, bring it in and use it!

If you have a small laundry room you can find individual hen nesters and utilize less wall space. I have 3 sitting in my garage right now! Keep your eyes peeled next time you are ot junking! Again...great project!

Take care,

Happy Junking,

Good job!

JunkArchitect writes: Now that’s and incredible transformation. The chicken box thing kind of has a vintage laundry mat look to it. Good grab, I would have bought it in a second. Posted: 4:06 pm on January 16th
