This was the tagline in a recent advertisement that gave me a chuckle. The housing situation across the country is pretty dire as market values continue to plummet. While we wait for the market to bounce back, we have embraced making home improvements.
I recently posted about the completed tile throughout the house. Ironically, during the tile installation, we overhauled our laundry room. Unfortunately, I remember to take 'Before' pictures after I empty out a space, so it's not a good depiction of what the set up was like prior to but trust me it was pitiful!
Here is Greg installing the cabinets in our laundry room:
Cabinets installed, yeah!
Here is the Laundry room today. Never mind the awesome 80's almond colored dryer, that was given to us by Greg's grandparents. I have no idea how old it is but it's like the Energizer Bunny, it just keeps on going and going!
This is where we hang our hats (lol), post invitations, and place our stuff when we get home.
Just some colorful touches to make the space fun.
Some storage bins and an extra shelf for laundry baskets. Oh and a chandelier. Hahaha!
Bonus picture of my OCDness. I love clear bins with labels. When I look in this cabinet, it totally makes me happy!
Shortly after the tile installation was complete, I decided to make a space for Nathan's toys downstairs. At the time, we had a custom made shelf that Greg built to house 8 canvas 12x12 bins in our family space where we stuffed all of Nathan's toys. Whenever Nathan played with his toys it was in the direct path to the bathroom - completely inconvenient and a total mess.
So I took all of this storage, out of this closet:
And made this closet, a toy space:
I added this sheet as a curtain to hide the shelf and vacuum accessories.
And much to my delight, Nathan's toys are contained and out of the way!
Our completed projects are so timely considering the milestone we will soon recognize...any guesses what that might be? Anyone?
