Basement Reveal Part 4: The Laundry Room

Sorry that it took me so long to share this room! Honestly, I just ended up putting it off. I wanted to wait until the clothes were somewhat picked up and the room looked nice. :) So here is the view from the doorway. Notice the tile....my sweet husband laid that and it looks amazing. I love the color! That shelf on the far wall is a work in progress...
 Some towels....just keepin' it real people! :)
 My little cutie from the last post. I love it. I do.
 This is wonderful. Being a woman, almost nothing I own is dryer safe. So this is a must have!
 We have open shelving there to the left that we covered with a shower curtain. Eventually I think we will put doors on it. We have quite a few left over from the way the den used to be. For now, we are totally okay with the curtain. It adds some color to the room! And that patch of drywall to the left is from where we had to take down part of the wall for waterproofing. We will get around to repainting that....
It gets so much natural sunlight. I love it!
So there you have it. Its still a work in progress, but it is so pleasant and enjoyable. Totally functional. Now just over time and with very little money we will tweak it a bit. Honestly, it would be great if we could get it the way that we want using only things that we already have! I would love that! Hopefully I will have an update for you in the coming months. For now, I am just happy that it looks so nice!

  1. Looking good! Btw,you've got so much creativity going on in your blog so can
    you please share them with us at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop?

    This is a combination of linky party (where we can show off our
    creations) and of blog hop (where we can follow as many excellent
    bloggers as we like), hence the name Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop.
    It's a great way to meet awesome creative bloggers like you and
    increase your followers in the process.

    All you have to do is 1) link up whatever creative post you'd like to
    share - can be a DIY project, decor, photography, crafts, recipes,
    poem, thrift finds, tips, or that informative syndicated post that can
    make us laugh, or cry - in short, whatever you're proud of! 2) Then
    follow as many blogs as your heart desires, preferably starting first
    with the one before you and after you, and leave a comment to them
    that you're doing so.

    You’re not required to include the party button but if you’re so inclined
    to display it in your blog or your post, you’re very much welcome to
    do so :)

  3. Beautiful and spacious! I am laughing at the dry rack--I'm glad I'm not alone. EVERYTHING I own goes on the dry rack. Shrinking clothes is not a good thing. Great job on the laundry room!

  4. I love the idea of a curtain in the laundry room! I need to add one over our shelves to hide the clutter! Also, I am just a little jealous of that HUGE laundry room! Ours is tiny and cramped!

  8. I'm a new follower and would love for you to stop and visit my blog...but bare with me I'm moving from MD to NC so my blogging has been lacking a bit...

    I'm so jealous of your laundry room I'm going from a huge room to a laundry closet...I guess that's what happens when you go from a 2400 sq ft house down to 1400...It will definitely be a decorating challenge :-)
