This is what my laundry room looked like this year, so sad, I hated it.
Then, Pinterest arrived and I found the solution, cabinets, so after much persuasion, whining, etc. Our nephew Michael came down and said those magic words to Mark (my husband) " Put those cabinets in, she (me) wants it and it is a easy job that would make her happy" Soooo......
And look what happened, he put those cabinets in and I finally finished my laundry room painting that was running around in my head, so happy wife, happy life, thats me.
Make doing the wash a pleasure.
