One of my Home Goals for 2012 is to get organized. From the picture below, you can see why! I probably should be horrified to show you this “before” picture, but this is my life. To know me is to love me with all my messy, unorganized flaws.
I decided I wanted to do the laundry room make over on a budget, using materials I already had. My BFF gave me almost a whole gallon of paint that was left over from a project I helped her with. I had shutters in my garage that I picked up from Habitat Restore for $5.00 and last week I purchased metal brackets from Habitat just ‘cuz they were $2.00 each. I’m ready to roll!
Still need to get a few things for the laundry room. More shelves would be wonderful and maybe some storage bins and artwork. Do I love my laundry room now? YES! Does it make me want to do laundry? HECK NO! Laundry still sucks no matter what your laundry room looks like! But at least it looks more organized and inviting to walk into.
If you have any brilliant ideas on how to organize a laundry room, I would love to hear! Still have oodles of shoes to contend with, and all my mops and brooms are shoved in a corner right now. I don’t want to resort to my old ways… if a messy room has a door, then shut it and run! ; )
