Confessions of a Laundry Room

There is a confession that needs to be made here. The sad state I keep my laundry room. Otherwise known as the dungeon. People, it is scary down there. I do the laundry and hightail it to safe ground. It is also a room where I throw store totes full of nothing, hide presents (because the kids won't even go down there), and ill-fitting children's clothes. This combination along side the fact that it is in the basement, with no decent light, is a formula for dumpiness.

I probably should have done a warning before you looked at the pictures. Yet, you have to see it to believe it. I am letting it all hang out there for you. My laundry room is a hole. A junk filled hole.

All hope is not lost on me. I have a plan. Yes, my little pretties, a plan. I am going to tackle said laundry room/dungeon/junk filled hole and transform it to a place of tranquility. A place where the warm hum of the dryer and the Downy scented air will cajole me into the basement to do laundry. Ah, I can almost smell it now...

So here it is. In the next couple of weeks the transformation will take place. On my strict budget of $100. I will not go a penny over. I hope. No, I won't. Most of my supplies will come from my crap resources I have stored away here. Think I can do it? I hope you said yes, because I don't know if I can. I might need you to cheer me on a little.

By the way, we start gutting out our upstairs next week. The perfect time to work on my laundry room, dontcha think?

Florescent lighting might help! Hey I'm in your corner - no doubt you can do it. (see I even have pom pom's to cheer you on... never mind I can't figure out how to make it look like pom poms....just know I'm there for you!)

Make sure you give us pictures!

I am so jealous of your laundry room. Yes, even as is--the dungeon. WOULD LOVE to have a basement to hide my laundry in.

I think the person who invented the house with the washer and dryer next to the bedrooms was brilliant.

Next house...

Great to e-read you again. Hope everything's going well in the hallway.
