Tuesday Time to Tackle: Laundry Room Decor

I value function.  If a room works, I'm happy.  The laundry room in my house is a good-sized room.  When we remodeled our kitchen, we saved the old cabinets.  Some of these sit in our laundry room now, and provide a counter on which to fold clothes.  Still, after years of staring at a blank wall, I thought, "Why can't this room be cute as well as functional?"  




I looked around my house, gathered up items that weren't currently being used, and gave them a home in my laundry room.  I used fabric I had on hand to make a skirt for the sink, and curtains for the window and the shelf.  I did buy a clock at the thrift store, velcro to attach the skirt and one of the curtains, and a tension rod for the window. 

My laundry room now makes me smile. 




I love the fact that such a big impact could occur with minimal cost, time, and effort.  

What little changes have made big impacts in  your home?

Thanks for form and function.

  5. The room looks great! And to think, you had all of that around the house already. Unfortunately, it would take a lot more than that to make my dungeon/laundry room pleasant to be in.

  7. Great going! You should have it looking nice since you're in there often enough. I wish I could say the same but ours is just a corner in the unfinished basement. I do have a window though and that's nice.

Never Give Up Hope

Twenty-three years ago, a beautiful little girl was born. From the get-go, she was sweet, sensitive, and rather shy. She has grown into a young woman of whom I am so proud. She has worked hard to overcome challenges, and recently told me she is trying to face her fears, and asked me if I would write her story and share it here on the blog, in hopes she can inspire others through their own struggles. Although I offered to publish an auto-biographical piece for her, she wanted me to write her story from my perspective. At her request, and with her approval of this post, I share the following:
The phone rang, and the social worker on the other end informed me that a baby girl had been born 10 weeks early and drug-exposed. She wasn't ready to be released from the medical facility where she was currently staying, but would we be interested in being her foster-to-adopt parents? Of course! When John and I filled out our paperwork, we indicated that we were comfortable with a premature bab…

Six Sentence Story: Burst

The moment the church organist started playing the introduction to the hymn, the precocious toddler girl stood up on the pew. Music just moved her, and she was doubly excited when she realized she recognized the tune. Though everyone around her was opening a hymnal and finding the right page, that was unnecessary for her. 
First of all, she couldn't read, but second, even if she could read, she didn't need the words; they were etched into her memory. Finally, the organist finished the introduction and the chorister signaled the congregation to begin, but while the rest of the church-goers sang, "Lord, dismiss us with thy blessing," the sweet little girl belted out, "Go tell Aunt Rhody." By the time she got to the line about the old grey goose being dead, all decorum was lost as those around her burst out laughing.

Six Sentence Story: Release

Her small brow furrowed in concentration as she carefully placed the wriggling worm on the little hook. 

"Ready, Daddy!" she called, and Daddy came over and helped her cast the line into the lake. To the amazement of both of them, soon the bobber took a dip into the water. Daddy talked her through reeling the keeper-sized fish onto the shore.

"I'll name him Lucky, because he is lucky I caught him!" she proudly announced.

Lucky's luck ran out, though, when he realized this wasn't going to be a catch-and-release situation.
