Hello lovelies! Almost at the end of another week. Is it just me or does time fly by the older you are? 😉 I am soooooo very excited for tomorrow’s post. I have been waiting for two and half weeks to share it with you!! BUT, before that happens, let’s get to today’s. As always, if you have missed any of the previous challenges or to check-ch-check-check-check-ch-check it out, what-wha-what-what-what’s it all about (Beastie Boys anyone?), just click on a link below.

Love Your Space Challenge #17
Organize the Laundry Room
Okay y’all, you know the protocol! Take 20 minutes to clean up your laundry area. If the space isn’t working for you, try adding baskets or shelves for extra storage. Wipe down the surface with a dust rag. If you use powder laundry detergent, it looks lovely in a canister. =)
Don’t be afraid to hang pretty things on the walls or to use a nice light fixture.
Need a way to hide your washer and dryer? Use a tension rod and hem up some curtains (or make your own).
My Outcome: Here’s a little story about a laundry room…. We are in a rental, and as I mentioned in the pantry challenge, the pantry closet was the laundry room. One day, along came a front load washer and dryer that couldn’t fit in its home. So they were forced to live in the corner of a big room with a desk, a full size organ, and other odds and ins. There wasn’t much that I could do but to make it pretty and functional (my middle name, right?). I placed our Ikea desk top on top of them for a folding surface and hung a cafe curtain rod underneath so that I could hide the duo behind a handmade curtain. I would have loved to hung some shelves above it but that’s a no-no for renters. I did use an award winning photograph that my friend took and baskets for storage. Hopefully, the washer and dryer will have a happy life in its home but I can’t wait to have an actual laundry room again.
Sorry for such a silly post, I had a LOT of coffee today!! Anywho, tell me your laundry room pros and woes. 😉
