So it occurred to me as I was washing yet another mountain of clothing, that my laundry area could use a little facelift.
Here's my before picture:
Not really that terrible looking, but not what I would call cheerful either...
And here is my after:
I refer to my laundry area as a nook because it isn't in a separate room, but off in an alcove by my dining area. I chose the apple cut-outs (which I picked up for 5o cents at a garage sale) to go along with my fruit-themed dining room.
The wicker laundry basket with the cute gingham lining is from a local thrift store ($3) and the cart for my laundry supplies I picked up for $5.
This cart originally only costs around $15. (Walmart). I really like keeping my supplies here versus the top of my dryer, where I have a tendency to knock them over when I'm in a hurry...just what I need, another mess to clean up;) Plus, the Princess loves keeping her "pretend" cleaning equipment on the middle shelf.So for under $10. I was able to add some organization and cheer to this area of my home where I spend so much time:).
