Okay–new day, so brilliantly sunny, it’s hard not to have a new attitude to deal with winter’s….reprisal. So instead of pouting over having to conceal my fabulous new pedicure in socks and tennies, I’ll just think of them as being— “protected!”
Here are two pictures of the laundry room.
The white, oddly placed wall cabinet ….? My brother and I cut the top out of the cabinet before hanging— clothes from the kids’ upstairs, hallway ldry chute fall into the contained space until they get dealt with.
I cut a shelf to install on the right side of the sink base (below the chute) so Lynn (my sister-in-law) could sort their clothes into a pair of stacked baskets.
The custom cabinet I’m building will sit between the dryer and wall. It will hold those big, heavy, super-sized containers of laundry supplies, as well as give her a place to store other misc things. I added a drawer to give her place to store stain sticks and lndry markers, and “stuff.” I put the drawer “in” so you could see.
The right wall (between the door and wall cabinets) will have a 3′ hanging rod and shelf, giving her a better place to hang clean clothes until they travel to their appropriate closets.
The decorator in me would love to persuade her to paint all the cabinets white to unify, brighten, and visually enlarge the whole room—we’ll see. I’d also like to paint the walls a brighter, cheerful color–but since she just painted it, I don’t think she’ll want to. Plus–I would love to see a great light fixture replace the “boob” light—those things should be outlawed.
I have another coat of paint to go before I can take everything over to install. I’ll take pictures.
That 2nd project that’s taking me away—I’m off to Lynn’s Aunt’s house to add the architectural details the builder did not, and to re-work and refine some of their paint color choices.
