Let’s face it, one of the worst chores ever is laundry. There are loads of reasons for that (pun intended). It’s never-ending; it involves many steps; it’s time consuming … well, you know. We joke about disposable clothes. We groan and complain … then we do it anyway.
When we moved into our home, we got a new washer and dryer. I’ll be honest, I was a little disappointed that technology hadn’t come up with a machine that could sort, wash, dry and fold my laundry, but at least I got a fancy new set that not only offered a steam refresh setting on the dryer, but came in a pretty red. After all, I reasoned, a laundry room should at least be pretty if you have to be stuck in it doing a chore.
Time went by. I used my laundry room for its intended purpose, but I would search images in catalogs and on pinterest for ways to make my laundry room more inviting. I even snapped pics of ideas when I was out shopping.
Then, I came up with a plan … add some shelves for extra storage, throw some fun art on the walls, maybe even add a pretty little lamp.
Over the past week, Greg helped me figure out what I would need – shelf brackets, shelves, art, color-coordinated storage bins. I managed to snag the find of a lifetime when a nearby Target store still had some Christmas-red bins available … at HALF PRICE!
Then we got to work. We took out the old shelf, painted the walls, and Greg hung all the new shelves.
He headed to the lake for a day of sailing and I stayed behind, determined to get the room done. In the end, I stood back and admired the finished project with glee.
OK, sure … the laundry piled up for about a week while we recreated the space, but at least now, when I’m switching loads or folding, I have a downright lovely space to do it in. That’s a reason to be grateful and filled with joy – right?
There’s a whole world out there just waiting to be explored. You’ll need clean clothes for your journey.
