Hiding Ugly




No one wants to see the ugly washing machine hoses and electrical outlets.


 Want a quick and easy fix?

I took a crown moulding ledge that was made of foam and hot glued fabric along the outside edge.


My fancy installation method?
Two nails.
It's held up for 10 years, so all is well.
I bet you want to know where I hang the clothes as I fold.
On the refridgerator door handle, of course.
Don't you?


I am going to change up a few things in here soon...

  1. I love it!!

    Very clever, TOT! I may be able to beautify our laundry after all. I told Brad we need a dimmer in there. The lighting is the opposite of life affirming!

  3. That's a clever idea, too bad my laundry room hoses and cords don't show, they are weighted down in the back of the appliances with huge dust bunnies.

  7. This is such a timely post, Tina. We are getting ready to put our house on the market soon and I was looking at that ugly thing today and wondering what I was going to do with it. This is a great idea! xo Diana

  8. I've got a HUGE laundry room, a space most ladies would love... but it is also HUGE in UGLY! It would take a lot of fabric to cover my UGLY!! Kudo's to you for figuring out your space, you clever, clever girl, it looks great!

  9. Oh, a laundry room that isn't in the dungeon. Sigh.

    I'd need a couple bolts of fabric to hide the pipes and cords that decorate my laundry room wall. My style must be "electric cord chic".

  11. Once your house is completely perfect and you've out-arted yourself, can you PLEASE COME OVER? Think of the YEARS worth of blogs you'd get!

  13. That's a very clever and attractive solution! Are you still able to use the clothes rod above the washer? That would be my concern, because my laundry room is SO small I have nowhere else to put clean clothes.

    I'd love if you'd come join my How To Tuesday link party, too.

  16. Cute idea! Do you have any ideas for hiding air conditioner units? We're waiting for repair in Denver on our central air, but after that we want to disguise it somehow. Thanks!
