Ok, so here is our laundry room on the day we moved in. This was probably one of the most ugly spots in our house. This is also the direct view from our bedroom.
This room sat untouched for a while as we worked on other things. But you can see the doors in the photo. The left photo is our bathroom and the right is our closet. This is also an exit for our backyard - so we get lots of traffic through here.
So we started painting to brighten things up - we love the cheery yellow. But the eyesore in the corner drove me crazy. It also became the storage spot for things like our broom and steam mop...we don't have any sort of pantry or closet for those things. I also have a little basket for trash back here - when I pull out the gum wrappers from pockets and also the lint from the dryer.
So I found a simple solution for now - peg boards. I actually already had these up in the attic. So I pulled them down, gave them a little paint job, added a few brackets and I was done!
Bye, bye ugly water heater.
Something so small as hiding the water heater has made me love this space so much more. One day I would love to get a stackable washer and dryer and then re-work this laundry space. For now though, our washer and dryer work and we have bigger projects to think about so its staying this way.
I love how much brighter this space is becoming...
Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend! I have more organizing going on and more projects to share this week!
