That's right. I had told Jim that I thought a cabinet would solve a lot of my laundry woes, and there was just enough space for one beside the dryer. On Tuesday (I think) I drew up a plan of what I wanted this cabinet to look like, then gave it to Jim when he got home, with the not-so-subtle hint that it would make a great Mother's Day present. I didn't expect him to get to it right away, but he went right to work and finished it the same night! He used up some wood from an old TV cabinet that we had taken apart when he got a better one from work. I love how much stuff I can fit in here, and how it frees up the washer and dryer and makes everything look so neat and uncluttered.
I also wanted to dress up the room a little bit, so I printed out this cute sign from Tattered and Inked, and framed it with a dollar store frame. Then I printed out one of these labels (in spite of the fact that my detergent is not made from soap nuts ;)) and used some scrapbook paper to pretty up my homemade detergent container (which is an old coconut oil jar). I thought it came out so cute! Now the only thing I need to complete this room is some window trim and door trim, and maybe a little baseboard . . . hint hint, honey?! ;)
I'll be back tomorrow with a post about my next room to spring clean!
