It all started with a plan . . .
. . . to update my laundry room and create more storage space.
Handyman Hubby and I spent last weekend working on this teeny tiny room. The washer & dryer had to be moved out before we could do anything. Let's just say it was lots of fun moving those heavy applicances out of such a small space!
The pedestals had to be removed from the bottom of the washer & dryer before we could stack them. In order to do this, we had to lay them down to unscrew the drawers. So.much.fun.
We spackled nail holes, painted the walls, painted the trim and cleaned up A LOT of dryer lint.
After much debating, we decided to place the stacked washer & dryer centered on the wall. Now there is room on both sides for storage AND I can actually reach everything! Since I'm vertically challenged (aka short 5'2") I couldn't reach the shelf that was above the washer & dryer before. Even with a step stool it was hard to reach stuff in the corners. Now everything is within reach! Woo hoo!
The stacking cubbies and metal baskets are from the hall closet. I wanted to see how the space would work so I borrowed them to get an idea of what it would look like. Looks like they're staying so now I'll have to redo the hall closet. See how I create more work for myself?
My mom gave me this maid service sign years ago. I decided to hang it right above the light switch.
It must be defective. I've pushed the button but a maid has never shown up and my kiddos don't want to clean up after
themselves. Hmmm . . .
There is still a lot to do but we're making progress. Here's what is left on my list . . .
Create storage/place to hang clothes
on left side of washer & dryer
Hang ironing board
Add hooks to hang clothes
Make labels for metal baskets
Add the fun stuff!
Subway art, WASH letters, etc.
