Over the weekend we painted not one but two rooms! Huzzah! And seriously don't ask me why, maybe the madness of impending motherhood but I just did not want my baby girl to arrive in a home where the *gasp* laundry room wasn't painted. What a relief! And a joy because I adore it.
I actually very recently found this image and it's pretty on point perfect to what I wanna do in here. I was even scratching my head as to how can I do both open shelving for a few cute things and mostly closed for everything else. There's the answer. The bottom cabinets I've already purposed in my head. The right side thinner cabinet will house the big bag of dog food and the right side drawer (drawer, hadn't even thought of that) will have the leashes and dog stuff and the bottom cabinet will house the laundry basket. I even love that there's a less accessible but still closed upper cabinets where I'd like to store misc. stuff like lightbulbs.
I tried to like this window situation but I just don't. I think bamboo blinds that will mount inside the window are gonna be the way to go.
There's not a LOT of stuff in the laundry room that needs to be stored which is why the eventual cabinet thing will help alleviate some storage space from other areas in the house.
And Matt's geeky posters look right at home in here. The frame is a shiny dark grey and because of how good they look with the blue wall I think I'll have to hit up Ikea and grab some more.
