This weekend I bring you a new area...
The laundry room.
So last week I showed you the garage... through that door at the very back is the laundry room. I suppose you could also consider it a mudroom too.
This is probably one of my FAVORITE rooms in this house because I have my very own washer and dryer y'all. If you've been around here for long.. you know that in our apartment in Kansas I had to hike (aka haul) ALL of my laundry down from the third floor. Load it into the car.. drive it to the complex laundry mat.. wait an hour and a half and then pick it all up and haul it back upstairs. Awful I tell you. Laundry was pretty much ALWAYS on my to do list. Sooooo... it makes perfect sense why I enjoy this so much.
here [total coincidence that I'm recapped in that post!!]... BUT a's and u's and n's and d's are hard to make with masking tape due to their annoying curves! So I gave up and will eventually tackle it some other way.. maybe? I'm kind of digging the bright blue square. Oh and my zebra Scentsy was lost in the world of a man saying no because it has zebra on it.. so it is destined to be the mismatched bit of this bright hot mess.
So there is the laundry. It is pretty average. Minus the blue square of course...
This week I was also going to show you the entryway through the front door.. BUT last night I decided I wanted a new piece of furniture. I came across this awesome little bench on Craigslist.. went to pick it up today and of course the seller was a smoker. She said the piece had been in her family for 15 years. So 15 years of smoke is no bueno my friends. [If you are a smoker, I am not judging.. just not a fan of that smoke smell in my house!] Needless to say I also had my first encounter with bleach today... and now my hands smell. Fabulous. Anyway, I've tried 3/4 water-1/4 bleach mixture rubbed on twice now and it still smells. Going to leave it outside tonight [80+ degree weather here still Kansas folk! How about that?!] and see what tomorrow brings. If you have suggestions though I am ALL EARS. I love this piece but if we can't de-stink it.. then it has to go. If tomorrow brings a fresh [er] scent.. then look for that post Wednesday ish.
Otherwise be on the lookout for the entryway, bathrooms, the guest bedroom, the office, the kitchen, the dining room, the living room and the master bedroom sometime in the future.
