One of the byproducts of getting ready for the magazine shoot was that we finally paid a little attention to the laundry room.
This poor room has never been shown any love, as it has always been waiting to be turned into another bathroom.
Sometimes it is just best to live in the present and let the dream go.
If it comes to be anyway, then great. But sometimes you just have to move on & move in to reality.
So I spruced up the laundry room, using leftovers from a variety of other projects.
Such as this garland from a wedding I helped with in May.
Chalk board from the office, lamp from the old shoppe pile of “to do” projects.
Paint from the dining room, hardware I found stuffed in a drawer. Not even sure what I bought it for.
mirror from the bedroom, curtains from the fabric closet..
Sweet Man made a shelf out of left-over lumber
It is amazing how much more laundry we get done now that we actually like the room.
Both Sweet Man and I find that we are more likely to do a load or 2 every day or so, rather than letting it pile up.
Not that it still won’t from time to time.
But it does help to like the space and to place some value on it other than “that room where we dump stuff.”
