In case you missed it last week I am currently participating in the $100 Room Challenge with Erin from Lemons, Lavender and Laundry along with lots of other awesome ladies. I decided to make over my laundry room and my goal is to use as much stuff that I already have on hand as possible. If you missed it make sure you check out week 1.
This week I decided to declutter my laundry room. Like I said this room has been a dumping ground for lots of stuff that just doesn’t belong. Surprisingly after taking out all the trash and putting stuff away where it properly goes I did not have anything to sell or donate. I do actually have a good bit of stuff that needs to be organized, but that will have to wait till after the painting is done.
Here are some pictures of how it looks after taking all the extra stuff out of it.
Now that there isn’t anything behind the door it opens all the way and you can actually see the urinal. It doesn’t currently work and we are hoping to be able to figure out what is wrong with it and how to fix it. The girls really want to take it out, but surprisingly I don’t. Having two sons with friends its kinda nice to have. Especially since Noah’s bedroom is basically across the hall from the laundry room.
I do still have a good bit of stuff on the shelf above the washer and dryer. But it will all be staying in the laundry room.
Make sure you come back next week so you can see how I decide to paint the laundry room. My goal is to use paint I currently have on hand. I have a good many different colors from all the projects I have done over the years and the accent wall colors the children have had. So what color do you think I will use??
As you all know we moved earlier this year and to say this house has been a disaster would be a huge understatement. Did you hear our roof is leaking in two place also?? Yeah, something else to add to the growing list of problems. But I am still trying very hard to make this house into our home as you have seen from my list in my Thursday To Do series. So when I met Erin from Lemons, Lavender and Laundry I was super excited to join her in the $100 Room Challenge.
This month I am working to make over our laundry room and the budget is no more than $100!! I am actually hoping to spend far less than that and to utilize much of what I already have on hand.
As you can tell this room needs some major work. I know you are thinking how can I possibly spend less than $100 to make this room look nice and inviting?? I am going to show you, I actually already have a plan for what I am going to work on each week this month to make this room look nice and inviting!! I promise you will want to come to my house and do laundry afterwards or maybe use my urinal!!!
During this next week I plan to completely declutter this room. Since we moved in this room has been a dumping grounds for lots of stuff that just doesn’t have a place. So all of that extra stuff is coming out of the room this week. I am going to start with a trash can for the trash, a donate/sell box and box for stuff that needs to go somewhere else.
