For over two years we’ve been maneuvering the chore of cleaning clothes in our basement laundry dungeon.
It’s cold, claustrophobic, a little creepy and not that much fun to be in.
And when I say “not that much fun” I mean I would rather eat a gigantic bowl of brussel sprouts then be in there doing laundry.
As well as being a laundry room it’s also doubled as a dumping ground for storage and 2 refrigerators (one of which just broke).
Making this space over has been in the works for a while but when the Home Depot asked if they could help us get some polishing details in order I was like shee-ya!
Yes, I always kick up a heal and give a flirty pose at Home Depot, doesn’t everyone?
Next up, add some diy and inexpensive shelving using mdf and 1×2′s from Home Depot.
Caulk, primer and paint make a carpenter what he ain’t.
They’re fairly utilitarian but oh-so FUNCTIONAL!
The ceramic (faux) wood tile flooring was installed a few months back but it makes such a huge difference in contrast to the concrete that was here.
I can’t tell you how nice it is for everything to have it’s own space. I just makes getting chores done so much more efficient.
(plus the smell is so yummy).
I’ve also tried several steam mops in my day and this Swiffer Bissel one rocks. I feel like other ones will pump some serious steam out all at once then go dead for a minute while they try and re-charge for another steam blast. This Swiffer one keeps a pretty steady and consistent steam supply, now if they could just figure out a way to make it cordless. Cleaning with steam…I love it!
