After years of tiny, awkward, flooded, mosquito-filled laundry rooms on the island, I am super grateful for our large, very efficient, dry, pest-free laundry room. Our washer and dryer both work, there is a counter top for folding, lower cabinets for storage, a rod for hanging clothes to dry, space for a drying rack, and a utility sink. I found some great gently used upper cabinets to paint and hang above the water and dryer, which are in the process of being refinished, but, in the meantime, I wanted to make the utility sink a little prettier by adding a skirt.
I found this great shower curtain on clearance at the HomeGoods near my office.
It compliments my inspiration piece for the laundry room, was ~$5, and the fabric is relatively heavy. I started by measuring the utility sink for 2 panels, one along the front, and one along the right side. Then, I spread the curtain on our table, marked the measurements, and cut the fabric.
I had fusing tape on hand to use instead of sewing the seams. I folded each seam in place and ironed it in place before inserting the fusing tape and ironing it in place.
Then, I added a strip of sticky-back velcro along the top of the cleaned utility sink, and the matching strip along the top edge of the newly fused skirt.
Hope you enjoy! I look forward to sharing the completed laundry room soon.
