With a family of 8, I could probably do laundry all day long if I wanted to stay caught up.
I want to stay caught up, but I DO NOT want to do laundry all day long.
But I'm sure that part of my problem is that my laundry room has looked like this:
And this: Notice the blah color on the walls, the rickety ironing board, the unorganized and limited shelving.
The picture of the little children is to remind me why I am in here. Why I spend so much of my time here. Why I dream about laundry. :)
I then spray painted some old frames I owned with spray paint I already had and then put some of the same fabric I used on the ironing board in them to hang above the shelf.
I already owned the picture of the little laundry girl.
The Laundry sign was on clearance at Fred Meyer. As was the white tin that I now keep my detergent in.
I then gave it a skim coat of red paint, (which I had already) to give it a worn, distressed look.
So breakdown in cost: Paint-free
Detergent tin and Laundry sign-$16
Red tupperware bins-$8 at Walmart
Ironing board cover and
frames with sillouhette
My time of course, was donated, to myself. It took about 4 hours.
It is not perfect. But I love it, and I actually like walking into the laundry now.
I just believe strongly that you can change your surroundings to something you love with very little money, and some creativity.
Now I'm off.
To do laundry, of course.
Have a happy day!
