It all started with our new washing machine.
My husband's company is very "green," and every year they offer a lump sum of money to their employees to do something "green" to their house. We had been in need of a new washing machine, so a few weeks ago the nice men from Best Buy brought me this lovely front load washer:
I had seen so many people around the blogging world make their laundry rooms look more like spas, and I wanted to join in the fun! First, I took my cork board, which holds some random coupons, calendars and other junk, and moved it to another, less conspicuous, wall.
Then, I found an old lamp in the basement and recovered the lampshade so that it looked sufficiently cute for this space. Then I just did some good, old-fashioned decluttering. Let's all take a deep breath as we look at the now clutterless laundry room!
Ahhh...much better! A while back I blogged about that "Laundry" sign on top of the cabinets, so if you want to see how I made that little guy for so much less than the Ballard Designs catalog, click here.
Otherwise, have a great weekend!
