"We" have been painting again. Actually, I've been supervising and Hubs has been hard at work, transforming the laundry room from "it's a laundry room," to "WOW! What a pretty, lavendar, functional laundry room!"
Without further ado. . . Here's my laundry room, complete with folding area, hanging rod and shelving, all installed by my personal Handy Man. The clothes hampers wheel out and there are four compartments. I have never been able to limit my sorting to "lights" and "darks". I need a place for "whites" and "delicates." And, ideally, "jeans" and "towels." But, I digress.
On the opposite wall there is a clock (so I know when it's time to rush out the door and pick up the kids) and a yardstick hanging in a little holder made by a former Cub Scout (whatever happened to yardsticks? When I was growing up, there was always one hanging in the kitchen behind the door, at the ready.)
The baskets hold an assortment of cleaners, lightbulbs, gift bags (I know that's odd, but I find the best place to wrap a gift is on top of the washer/dryer. Lots of room there.) And on the shelf is a James Saltwater Taffy bank for all the change I find. (Someday, I'm going to cash it in and take a trip). Oh, and the jar of clothespins. Because, what laundry room is complete without wooden clothespins?
I love my lavendar laundry room. I wasn't able to convince Emily to paint her room lavendar. Hubs is easy going, but he drew the line at a lavendar bedroom. I think it's a pretty color for a laundry room, don't you? Not normal, but after all . . .
