I finally got around to working on the laundry room. I had lofty goals, so it took awhile for me to get motivated...and to find time to actually get it all done! Turns out the impending arrival of a particular four-legged furry friend was all the motivation I needed (as the laundry room will be his temporary bedroom).
What I did: Painted, lowered the shelf over the washer/dryer, did a little DIY artwork/Amazon.com shopping
Art, folding table, and ironing board
Me reaching our new shelf! I subscribed to my mom's theory of home decorating/renovating which is do things for you and your everyday life. When we go to sell, the shelf will likely need to be raised back, as your average home buyer is NOT 4'8". But this is for ME, NOW.
Another view of our new shelf.
Now all we need is something for the suddenly expansive area over the shelf! Any ideas?
