Laundry Room Update

Hmmm....where did we leave off with the laundry room? I think the last you saw it, the trim had been painted and we were making a final decision on a red for the walls.

Well, the room is red now. Pretty darn close to 49ers red. Maybe Keith will be inspired to do some laundry now? (Actually, laundry is the one household chore I really don't mind at all. Of course, I have had a nice break from cloth diapers so that might be why...) This actually all got done pre-baby, but getting a post together somehow got pushed off. Huh.

We swapped out the mismatched, off-white outlets and light switches for new, clean white ones and what a difference a couple dollar fix makes! We also added new hooks under the shelf and a larger hook to hold the towel above the sink.

Obviously still in need of a shoe solution...but don't they look almost artsy against that bright red wall?

We are planning on adding a shelf above the washer and dryer, though not as high as the other shelf. I want to be able to reach it easily while standing in front of the washer.

Other finishing touches involve the trim around the ceiling, blinds, a better solution for our recycling bins, a mirror above the sink and sewing a "skirt" for around the utility sink. Oh, and the storage bench I desperately want. And eventually a new floor, though that is barely even on our project radar at the moment. I, for one, am just happy to have this room fully functional and seriously spruced up, even though it has a ways to go yet.

  1. Wow, it looks great! I love that color, especially against the new white trim and windows.
