    I laughed SO hard at every single one of those little quips! But I must say the “don’t cut your bangs” one resonates far too much for me! Ugh! πŸ˜‰

    I truly needed all the giggles and beautiful photos today! Dull, cloudy days with rain in the forecast just say “Get your giggle on and get going!”

    Yes..it’s laundry day at my house and yes, I have a gorgeous French-inspired laundry room thanks to my brother, sister in law & hubby helping me carry out my vision. They did the hard stuff. I came in with the pretty! It was a wonderful group effort that makes me happy every time I do laundry. Who knew the memories of the creation of the room is what continues brings so much joy? πŸ˜€

      I love that you love your laundry room, Connie! My sis visited my laundry room to brainstorm with me and after a few minutes said, I had not realized how completely unpleasant and sterile this space is! And I felt joined as we exhausted possibilities and dreamed of a better looking and functioning room to launder in. If it’s a room you use every single day and pass through multiple times per day, it just makes sense to address it as a priority. And why we have ignored it for 4 years is beyond me! It’s a frog we should have swallowed straight away! Happy weekend, joyful one – thank you for your friendship and for sharing your expertise so graciously. We all benefit! xox

    So this post made me happy this morning. Why laundry rooms, a place of drudgery for many, is my happy place I have no idea. But I love Laundry Rooms, and Mud Rooms too! I’m working on the design for my next house and I got some nice ideas from this post. Thank you!

I cannot wait to see what you do, and if ever you invite me along to tour your next place, watch me show up and have fun oogling your laundry room and cooking delish with you! πŸ™‚

    I feel your pain, my friend. My laundry room is also the entrance to the garage. I have to lock the door when
    I iron or risk getting hit when hubby arrives unexpectedly.
    I replaced my old appliances with front loaders on stands. The bottom of the washer holds cleaners and the dryer bottom holds footwear ( out of sight/out of mind). I had my husband install stock cabinets over top reaching to the ceiling which gives me extra storage. The one thing I can’t fit in is a sink between the washer/dryer. On the other wall, I hung pegs for outwear. I had a few old scrub boards that I hungover top. It’s not perfect but better than the original situation. Wallpaper might make it more cheery. Hmm
    I drool over all the lovely, roomy laundry rooms I see on Pinterest. I’d buy a new house just for the laundry room but alas, I love my home. Looking forward to your reveal as it might give me some inspiration.
    Great quotes today! I tried pinning them but no pin icon came up.

      So you really get it! Yes – the dreaded threat of the garage door opening is a headache and just makes you think…wait, did the designer of this space ever do laundry a day in their life? Ha! I just haven’t been ready to try new appliances since I love my 4 year young ones. My washer is just like a front loader with a huge stainless tub (no center agitator) and a clear lid. It’s dreamy. There are things I want to rip right out of the wall – like the soffit and the vinyl cabinets, but we’re just not sure about demo, dust, and expense for this space so we’re deliberating. I definitely need hooks. For the closet, I’m thinking about removing the doors to see how I might like a nook rather than hidden storage. The question then becomes – do I use that nook for folding or make it pretty and mud room-ish with a bench (which I don’t need since there is a bench a few feet away in the hall). If I’m thinking resale, it’s a completely different plan! Thanks for the ideas and support. No idea what the pinterest snag is – that is annoying! It’s working fine for me so you may wanna try again. I use tailwind to pin and absolutely love it since there’s a little icon I click which brings up every single image on a page and gets the job done lickety split. Wish me luck on this awful room and bon weekend! xox

    I took a screen shot of the 1998/ 2008/2019 quote and sent it along to my daughter. She gets it! I’ll try pinning again.
    All I can say is that the closet is valuable real estate, Michele. Use wisely! πŸ˜‰
    I’m seriously thinking about adding a colourful wallpaper to that room. The rest of my house is neutrals but this calls for something β€œWow!”.

      It is – and I feel like have these competing thoughts about how to use it. There is the thought that I should use it to function for my specific needs, for what will look most pleasing as an entry (and friends’ entry!) to our home, for resale, and for images/decor potential for this blog. It would be easier if this was our forever house and I wasn’t a blogger! πŸ™‚ I hope you can get to the bottom of the pinning thing – are you using chrome as your browser? Sometimes the browser is the culprit. And I love the idea of wallpaper and am still pondering that option too!
