New and Improved Laundry Room

I've been dreaming of having a laundry room since we purchased our first home in California. The first one didn't have a laundry area and we had to do the laundry at my mom's. The second house, the washer and dryer were in the garage.

So I was thrilled when we bought our home in Texas and it had a laundry room INDOORS!!  Woo Hoo!

But, it was just four walls and the hook ups.  I needed a utility sink for soaking my linens and storage for all my other junk laundry products.

These first four pictures are the "before."  (That's me in the first one)

No real storage
Blank boring walls
Linoleum flooring

And now the "After"
Nice sunny walls and white cabinets

Big sink with sprayer and under cabinet lighting,

Super cute dish towels 

Little yellow birds doing what I do everyday...

…washing and ironing

Ceramic tile and vintage needlepoint door stop. So Cute!

The vintage iron on the left was my late mother-in-law's
The one on the right is a bank to collect loose change while doing the laundry

Adorable vintage laundry bag to collect single socks until they meet
up with their partner at the end of the month. 

 There are still a couple of tiny details that need to be finished on it, but it is fully functional. I LOVE it! The sink in this room is so practical not only because I can soak linens and wash dog bowls (not at the same time, of course! LOL), but because the garage opens into this room. So if hubby is working on the car, or my hands are muddy from gardening, we don't have to trapes through the house to wash our hands.

This room has been on my to-do list since we moved in. What a wonderful feeling to be able to line it out.
