This is the before. It is what I saw when I entered my little laundry area. Not too enticing right? I don’t actually have a Laundry “room” per say. It is more of a very large closet.
I still have some more work to do such as repaint the shelves and make the curtains. I am also on the lookout for a few bigger baskets.
“laundry” subway art free online so I downloaded it and put it in a frame I had. I also found this cute little washing board up in the cabinet when I was cleaning it out so I hung those on the walls.
I keep my cleaning caddy up there so little hands don’t get it. Another thing I have done to make my laundry a more pleasant experience was to invest in a new clothesline. I had two single retractable clotheslines but they broke and they didn’t hold much clothes. Now, I have a 5 line retractable clothes line. Want to see it?
See – it goes from my fence to my deck post, but when not in use it just kind of blends into the fence (kind of). And what is also great about this thing is that it easily comes off the fence in the winter and can be used in doors. I have no idea how I will do that inside or if my husband would put up with it although he might if it lowers our utility bills. I just really enjoy hanging out my clothes in the beautiful sunshine while my kids play close by. It is one of the ways that I actually enjoy doing laundry.
