Re-organizing the Laundry Room

 The Laundry Room

Hey guys,  last weekend I spent most of Saturday , cleaning and re-organizing the laundry room. The washer and dryer were piled high with stuff. So I put the useable stuff in baskets and threw the rest out.  I was too embarrassed to take a before photo, but wanted to share the finished project.

I found these cute signs at Kirkland and Ross for nearly nothing. I think they brighten up the laundry room really well.

I just love my energy efficient washer and dryer.

 I actually found these two bins at a yard sale. They were brand new. I only paid 5.00 for both. I use these bins for dirty towels.

I purchased a utility cabinet at Lowe's. I store all the paper products and cleaning products in this cabinet.

The shelf above the washer and dryer was re organized. The straw basket and the large chicken wire basket stores my holiday linens. The other wire basket stores light bulbs. I am a huge coffee drinker and buy the K-cups in bulk. I store the extra ones on this shelf.

I hung up the ironing board, the dusters and the brooms. Before they were all standing in the corner by the washing machine.

I had the steamers and the vacumn cleaner stored in a small coat closet in the guest room hall . .

I wanted all cleaning appliance in one location. I cleared out the area beside the washing machine. Now that is their new home.

Re -decorated the Sun Room

 We decided to put wood flooring down in our sun room. It had cream colored carpet. We both love wood flooring so we decided to extend it into our  Sun room. It has made the room look larger and much brighter

This my corner of the room. I sit and play on my lap top or read in this chair. The two french style pillows were a Ross find. I found my rooster lamp at a yard sale. He was ugly, and had a red shade. I painted him black  and added this brown eyelash trim shade.


My hubbie won this radio at a Christmas party one year. The lamp is one we have had for a long time. I purchased the bird at Kirkland's this weekend. The key was a Kirkland find as well, many months ago. The black basket was a yard sale find and so were the beads.

I made these two burlap canvases. I found the old lace at a yard sale this   weekend. I had some rose trim in my stash. I added a old ivory rose and cherub on one piece. On the top piece I added a piece of costume jewelery.  I pick up costume jewelery at yard sales to add to my projects.

 The rooster picture  has a glare. It is just a metal rooster framed with a burlap background. I purchased it at Kirkland's this weekend. I also bought the greenery at Kirkland's as well. The  candle holder and the lamp I have had for a while. The lamp was purchased at Old Time Pottery. The candle holder was a yard sale find.

 I found this clock at a yard sale for 50 cents. It hangs on the wall over the rocker.

This corner is where my husband sits and drinks his coffee in the mornings. It is a chocolate brown rocker. I just threw this white quilt over to make it more comfortable.
