So, without further ado* I present to you The Room In Which The Laundry Magic Happens aka My Second Home:
|View from inside the house. Blah.|
|Such lame, open storage.|
|Don't be jealous of my ratty ironing board cover.|

We tore out the existing shelves and replaced it with these cabinets from either Lowes or Home Depot, I don't remember at this point. We actually refurbished the shelves that we tore out to connect the two cabinets and added inexpensive trim for a more finished look. I am SO happy to have more storage...especially concealed storage! The letters are from Hobby Lobby and I just spray painted them red. I painted the walls with leftover paint from our bedroom so all in all it was a pretty inexpensive remodel.

|At last, all the bags have a place!!!!|
|Amazing the difference a $9 cover can make.|
|The basket holds dust rags and the apothecary jars hold clothespins, detergent, and oxiclean.|
I wish I could say the makeover made me love doing laundry but sadly, no it has not. But it is nice to have a pretty and welcoming space that doesn't stress me out at the sight of all the clutter. This project also gave me an itch to do some other things around the house as well. I finally finished the play room and we've made a lot of other changes I'll be sharing
*Ado vs. adieu: I was very conflicted** as to which was the proper use as I've seen it written both ways. After thorough internet research I am happy to report that "ado" is in fact the correct term. You are quite welcome for this critical PSA.
**Yes, I am a nerd.
