This has been on our to do list for a while now, but we kept putting it aside. Mostly because other projects seemed more important.
But one night when I was laying in bed with this pregnancy insomnia, and I was making a mental list in my head of everything I had to do before the baby comes. One of the things on that list was to spruce up the laundry room, I couldn't stand the sight of it.
I talked to my hubby about it the next day, but he did not want to tackle it right now, he said that floors would take a few days to do. (They are laminate and under the laminate, there is MDF that it glued and stapled on, which needs to be basically scraped off - we had to do this in all of the bathrooms, kitchen and dining. And it is ALOT of work)
So I decided that I will do what I can and hubby can take care of the floors when ever he can.
I bought a can of paint and a new light fixture. After I painted, I bought a few baskets and a new laundry hamper, and a few other things. I Love it so much now. It is so bright and clean now. I don't even mind the floors that much now.
Here is the before and after:
The drying rack is awesome to dry cloth diapers!
I bought it at Ballard Designs:
The print is from Etsy:
A new ironing board cover from Amazon:
The hamper is amazing! I found it on Amazon.
Now the clothes are sorted: lights, darks and delicates.
The trash can with the lid is for cloth diapers.
