What is it about Laundry?
I have several baskets just like this one in my home, all overflowing with clothes. Usually, they are clean, waiting to be folded. I have to admit, sometimes we live out of the baskets, digging for what we need until I can't take it anymore and finally break down and just fold it!
This is sooooo NOT how I was raised, so I don't understand why I have such a problem keeping it done!
I am however, feeling pretty good today, cause I washed, folded and put away every single piece of laundry in our house yesterday! Man that's a good feeling.
Unfortunately, it doesn't last long, cause the reality is, there will ALWAYS be more laundry!
Maybe, just maybe, if I had one of THESE laundry rooms, I would be better at it......









Naw, who am I kidding, as beautiful as these rooms all are, I would still have the piles. Thats just the way I roll!


I am VERY thankful that we no longer have to do laundry this way.......

My family would be in BIG trouble!!!

My vote is for laundry room #4. I know I would do a better job with laundray...if I actually had a washer and dryer in my place. But, I guess that is what you get when you live in an apartment!

I love the 4th room, too. But, in my book, it's a laundry room and the last room I care about since I'm the only one in it and not for long, if I can help it! Troy put away laundry for the first time since we moved to this house yesterday and didn't know where anything went. I asked him if he even lived here!?! oh well. :)

Oh goodness, I would be in heaven with any of those rooms....cause I don't mind laundry, I do it all in a day and put it all away once the buzzer goes off that it is done...did you just roll your eyes at me? Sorry...I have to say i am horrible at cleaning the stove...I hate it...good thing I don't cook much! :)

Tricia - these pictures are FABULOUS! Most especially because I am in the process of redo'ing our laundry room - and ever since I have done the *simple* thing of unstacking our washing machine, I've been so much more motivated to do laundry.

Now - with your pictures, I'm SUPER motivated to execute and finish the room!

LOVE them all....great pics! xoxo

I would die for any of those laundry rooms. I don't even have a washer or dryer in my home. I drag my laundry to my parents...needless to say, it NEVER gets done.

Oh my goodness, these are so cute, and I would also have piles no matter WHAT my laundry room looked like. I detest laundry!

Thank you for the precious comment and blog love today! I'm so excited to spend a little time exploring your blog later today! (I'm sneaking ten minutes of blog time right now, but it's not exactly my "allotted blog time" so don't tell anyone.)

Blessings,

I love Laundry room #4...I have been wanting to put some shelving exactly like that in my laundry room! This post really makes me want to overhaul the laundry room~it's not too bad, but it could be much much better! :)

These are really cute laundry rooms...really cute. I have a nice size laundry room and it is pretty cute..not as cute as these...but pretty cute. It does not make laundry better. HATE laundry. Just had to share.
