So... remember my laundry room?
I determined that the amount of time I spend in this room directly correlates to the number of children I have. For example, I used to do a couple loads of laundry a week when I only had one kid. Now that I have 4, I do a brazillion loads a week. And my laundry room was less than inspiring.
It's a lot better now! I wanted a work space for folding clothes so I don't have to drag them through the house and pile them onto the floor in my bedroom just for me to avoid anyways.
I haven't really done any laundry since I built it so we'll see if I actually utilize the space. The nice thing is I just used supplies from my garage. The top is actually plywood but with the really dark stain, I don't think you can tell. I got the wooden leg from a wood working shop in Mesa. One of the bloggers my sister and I follow, Dorie, from Tuesdays with Dorie called us and said someone was giving away a bunch of wooden things like corbels and legs and things. So Tara drove into town and picked them up. I used 3 of the corbels in my island project that I almost finished. I'll post pics soon!
I'm thinking about hanging a bunch of windows from the ceiling with hinges to hit right at the shelf on the top half of the room. I just need to find a bunch of old windows!
I realized after I wrote this post that I had an idea in my head of exactly what I wanted it to look like but I couldn't remember where I'd seen it. I was looking on pinterest and I found it again. But I don't know where it's from because I got it off another blog who had borrowed the image. So if you know where it's from, please tell me so I can give them proper credit.
