Is this what Sundays look like at your house? I think Monday was traditionally wash day. My wash day starts Sunday and if I don’t get it all folded and put away that day, I have to look at it piled up in my room all week. In fact, I have a cute bench at the bottom of my bed that is now called the “laundry bench.” It is such a rarity to see it empty these days.
Laundry. This was early in the day. I probably did six more loads by the end of the day.
I love my vintage laundry hanger. I hang all of my clothes and most of Mila’s (they last much longer this way and are more easily consigned). I don’t really want to see the laundry right in the middle of the upstairs hallway all the time though. I have a laundry closet at the top of the stairs just opposite this laundry rack (I have a pic, but can’t post it again and I have no idea why that is happening. This new add media feature on WordPress is a lot more finicky than the old way!). I wish this house had a laundry room. The way things are set up right now, all the laundry mess (and ironing board) is a permanent feature in my bedroom.
Remember this cabinet pic? I haven’t decided if I want to repaint the inside or line the inside back with fabric.
I ordered this Cath Kidston oilcloth off of Etsy. I’m in love with this print and the fact that it is oilcloth and can be wiped. I have considered: 1. putting it on my dinning chairs 2. the top of my coffee table (like stretched over the top and stapled underneath) 3. the top of my dinning table (the white Ikea one that the boys scratched up) 4. making sofa arm covers with it 5. covering the inside back of the green glass cabinet. I love it so much I want to order it in other colors too. I’m a little crazy sometimes.
Look at this precious inspiration picture I found on Pinterest (from Homespun Living blog). It’s just so sweet and simple. She uses that table with wheels as an ironing board! Brilliant. Seriously. AND that glass front cabinet looks just like mine, right? My washer and dryer are side by side right now and I want to stack them like this. I think it will give me a lot more storage stacked this way. I can take the ironing board out of my room and get a cute table like this. I also want to hang a bar across the top of the closet that I can hang stuff to dry on hangers. I can use wicker baskets in there to store clean laundry instead of in my room on the “laundry bench.” I’m not sure where I can put my laundry hanger though. I almost need a European laundry rack that I can pull down from the ceiling.
I wish I could tackle this project by myself, like today. I always have so many projects in my mind that I want to get done and I really only have Christian’s help with these type of things for a few hours every other weekend or so. Even then, the house stuff that needs to be done usually takes priority over projects I want to do. It’s so frustrating. I need to buy myself a paint sprayer (Like my friend Nora did). And a few other tools of my own. Then I could do a lot more projects by myself!
