Every house has a room into which things get dumped, and for us it was the laundry room. The biggest offender was a second refrigerator that we bought when ours was on the blink and we had to wait for the repairman. It was up against this door and when we moved it we discovered that the door was unlocked for ... oh ... er ... maybe ... a year. Thankfully no one tried to break in because if they'd been strong they probably could have pushed the fridge out of the way and gotten in!
Next we removed a disused shelf and the cordless vacuum and patched all the holes and washed all the cabinets. It's looking better already, isn't it?
The Lord of the Manor is going to repaint the ceiling and trim, and I will paint the walls the same color as the kitchen which is right next door. The cabinets will stay white, they are in ok condition. I'd like to get a bracket to hang the ironing board on the wall.
Now that it's all cleaned out I can even iron in here, which is after all what the laundry room is for, isn't it?
But my favorite part so far? Moving the cordless vacuum cleaner to the broom closet. I hated that thing hanging on the wall for all the world to see, and thankfully now it's hidden away.
