I am trying to start thinking about ways my laundry room can function better. I have plans to build a set of base cabinets with a counter top for folding, and area underneath for dirty clothes and baskets. Replace the sink, come up with storage for the cat and dog food that is more functional. I love the colors that I painted when we built the house, but would like to add the extra touches. I hang out a lot in here... I really would love a comfortable chair... hmmm how can I figure out a way to fit that in there??? No, really! The kids & hubby usually steer clear if mommy is in the laundry room! I envision having a cup of tea and reading a book while washing clothes. Serenity now! HA!
Ok, well I am not doing anything major at the moment.... But I did come across these great bins a couple of days ago at my local Walmart... and guess how much?! Set of 3 for $4.50.
I grabbed 2 sets of them for a total of 6. Figured I could always return them if they didn't fit or find another spot to use them. They had them in Red, Black, & Purple... I got black... Now if they were chocolate brown that would have been perfect, but again for the price I thought I would try them! Here is a little photo tour of my laundry room.
I plan to update my blog as I redo the room. Overall I like most of it, but the functionality of the space can be better so that is my goal with it....
I was not looking for these, but when I saw them I stopped in my tracks! Took one out and judged the size and thought it might fit perfect in the space above my laundry room cabinets... which was sorta an out of reach spot that I threw a few things up on, but heck... It's a new year and I am a lady on a mission!

|This shows one main wall. I have had my wonderful dream machines for a few years... Yea, I probably should reposition that picture on the left wall... But I just never get around to it LOL|
|This area to the right I think can be better used.... Maybe some built in shelves next to the cabinets and around the kitty crap box... Really not sure what I am going to do with this area.... Suggestions??? Please share|
|Corner of the room. You can see my retractable clothing line here... It hides in the corner nook next to the cabinets above the washer & dryer. I do love my clothing line!|

|Right now the dirty clothes area has 3 baskets. I have 5 in my family and wash each person separate. It would be nice to have a spot for each person's dirty clothes plus an extra for delicates or linens|
