Well it’s now Tuesday and two days past my birthday. No more getting out of doing things by proclaiming that it’s my birthday week. Boo hoo to that, because today is full of laundry, laundry, and more laundry along with my everyday work schedule.
I won’t even horrify you and show a picture of the current state of my laundry room. We are lucky enough to have our own enclosed laundry area in our basement, but it has never gotten any love. There is paint peeling, ugly cabinets, a not so great looking sink… The list can go on and on.
So today while I go about doing my laundry I’m going to pretend I’m in here instead:
This is only a 6’ x 10’ and the home owner was able to fill it with sewing, crafting and laundry supplies.
There is a utility sink that is skirted to hide storage below. I love the glass door knobs that are used as pegs for hanging dish rags.
I love me some toile and a pop color like that lime that just pops. I might actually iron things If I had this room.
More toile and a lovely area to arrange all your cleaning supplies. Who knew that cleaning supplies could look so chic?
Love the stackable washer/dryer to save space and they are big enough for king size loads!. The folding drying rack is also a plus. My poor husband gets to walk into his shop area and see all my undergarments just dangling. I’m also loving the counter space to fold all my laundry and the industrial size laundry hamper below that is giving a face-lift with a custom skirt.
More peg space to hang all your clothes that need to air dried.
That’s it I'm now certain that a laundry room re-do is in store for my future. I need to spruce the place up so that I’ll actually enjoy being there instead of sometimes sneaking out and having my laundry washed and folded at the Laundromat. Shh it’s our little secret.
What does your laundry space look like? Do you continue your decorating in there or does it just get forgotten like mine?
