I was recently inspired by Lindsay's laundry room to reevaluate the room that most of my guests first see when they walk into my house (because few people actually use the front door). So I added just a few decorations over the washer and dryer. Nothing big. But much better than it was!
Unfortunately, THIS is what the other side of the laundry room looked like. Yikes! Where to begin?
So I pulled everything out, threw away half of the mail, and reorganized everything into baskets that I picked up from Walmart. I'd like to go back and add labels or tags, but for now this is a big step for us!
And of course I couldn't stop there.
These junk drawers needed some serious attention. I'll spare you pictures of the other 3 drawers but they pretty much all looked like this.
But with the help of a few drawer organizers, my
catch-all drawers now look like this!
I hadn't planned on tackling the laundry room closet, because THIS is what was staring back at me when I opened the doors! Oh my! But while I was out at a meeting, my mom (who was visiting), took the liberty of emptying out the whole thing for me! So sweet, right?! She knew that having it all sitting in my living room would drive me just crazy enough to go ahead and
re-organize it all. Thanks mom!
But it was well worth the work! Now I can actually open the doors and find things. All of this organizing, just makes me want to start a project!
I don't have a before picture, but this new ribbon holder and broom holder have done wonders for this closet!
And talk about a great space saver! Why have I never used these drawers before? Hello! But now they hold my grocery bags and coolers. Love it!
Thanks Lindsay, for your laundry room inspiration!
