Finished Laundry Room

I finished painting the laundry room last night whilst the Lord of the Manor cooked dinner. It was just the two of us so we had a simple dinner. I guess that's how it's going to be when the little birds finally leave the nest. But it was kind of nice actually.

So here is the laundry room this morning with the dirty clothes piled everywhere. But at least it's functioning as a laundry room! When I had that old frige in there, it was so dark and crowded that it was difficult to even sort the laundry.

This door faces East and I love the way the sun slants in early in the morning. It almost makes doing the laundry a pleasure. Almost.
The sun also lights up the laundry basket and washing powder in a pretty way.

I'm thinking of getting one of these things to help with the mess. Do you think I could train my family to put their dirty laundry in it? And sort it properly? Nah...I didn't think so either.

The color is Kelly-Moore Ferncliffe KM3996 . It almost matches the color of masking tape. It looks beige in the little chip, but looks quite yellow on the walls. It's the same color we used in the kitchen.

I use a thing that holds three mesh bags. Hubby is retrained to sort the clothes. I would hope you can retrain your family too. Also I retrained him to turn his socks right side out when he tosses them in there. I really like my three mesh bags. When one is full then I wash that load. I have them sorted as whites, lights, darks. Works for me. Your laundry room is very cheery now. I love how it looks.

Gorgeous laundry room! I hope to be sharing my new laundry this week. I love doing laundry now. I never thought I'd be able to say that. Jen
