This week-end Nate and I worked a little on the laundry room. We didn’t want to spend a lot of money on this room because I’m the only one that sees it. This was actually the 2nd time Nate had been in this room since we moved in 2 1/2 years ago. Ok, maybe the 3rd time.
The room needed help…
Yes,it mainly just needed cleaned but I also wanted it to be a little prettier. I had originally planned to paint it. Maybe even add some stripes. Or pink. But in the end, I was lazy. And cheap.
I wasn’t in the mood to paint a room that wasn’t an ugly color…and did I mention that I’m the only one that sees this room. So, I sewed a closet curtain and faux roman shade. I also painted some shelving boards. Cheap and sort of easy. And much cleaner…
I still need to add some art on the walls but I’m debating as to what I want. We will also eventually add some crown molding and maybe a small sink.
Our laundry room isn’t like some of the showstoppers that I have seen lately but these small, inexpensive changes did make the room just a little bit cheerier. And when it comes to laundry…I need all of the cheer I can get!
What are your thoughts on laundry rooms? Should a dumping ground be a well designed space or does it really matter because no one sees it but you? Does your significant other know where the laundry room is?
