House Project: 103011

Laundry Room
I've never had an actual laundry room before, so when we got this house, I was pretty excited about having the extra space.  I've mentioned before my visions for this room were more magazine-like than functional, but with some compromising from both me and the man, we are making it work for each of us.

BEFORE
 AFTER 
My pantry shelves were bowing from the weight of our canned goods and I wanted an overflow area anyhow, so Nathan put this shelf in the laundry room/mud room for some extra storage.  Also, while I was out of town last weekend, he painted and installed a shelf in this cabinet for me.  I wanted something pretty, but we were using the cabinet that was in the house before we bought it.  Using some materials we already had on hand and some time, he made it exactly like I was envisioning.  I'll find some door knobs and it will be good to go!  I'm SO thankful for this space!!

How fun to decorate your laundry room, I feel like I just looked at a page in a "Country living" magazine. Love a lamp in there!!! so fun! Great decorating!

How nice! I love that the cabinets are now white, they make the space feel so much brighter.

A laundry room is such a blessing! I have one in our current home, but my trouble right now is organization. Yours makes mine look really, really bad. Maybe I should post pics of mine for shock value. :-)

Looks great! I know what you mean, our last few houses didn't have a designated laundry room - I got tired of doing laundry in the cold garage real quick! Your lamp looks so cute in there :)
