Hello dear readers!
Today (August 11) is my birthday! Yeah-Hooray! I've had a pretty awesome day so far. I got some fun balloons and donuts (who can resist?) from close friends....I got to drop the kids off at the Ikea playroom while I browsed the store for an hour. Then, we ate there FOR FREE! (Yes, Ikea is having a "kids eat free" deal until Aug. 15. Run!!) After we came home, one of my youngsters actually took his nap! And...while the other children had their quiet time, I gave myself a birthday present!
I cleaned up and organized the laundry room! HA!!! Yes, I know. This is a present? But, trust me, when you see the BEFORE:
Yes, this is what I was dealing with. Our laundry room is not finished, so we've just been shoving junk in there willy-nilly. I couldn't take it anymore! Something had to be done! Lots of the junk got moved up into the attic or just thrown out. Love it when we can get rid of junk!
Well, I couldn't convince my hubby to spend the $$$ to put real walls up in the laundry room. I get it! Totally! The $$$ can be spent better elsewhere (like on clothes...for me). So, I needed another solution. I decided to use tension shower curtain rods ($3 per rod at Ikea) and some sheers for $5 for 2 panels. Awesome.
I bought some baskets for organizing (socks, drying bags, stain spray, etc.)
Some wire baskets for dryer sheets and the stainless steel thingy is for used dryer sheets and lint.
I'd like to find a room divider to hide this mess, but when I started pricing them I was amazed at how expensive they were! I'll have to keep my eye out for a deal!
