Show Us Where You Live - Laundry Room

This Friday I am participating in my first "Show Us Where You Live - Friday" feature. I think it is a great way for me to keep at least one room in my house clean :)

This week is playrooms, bonus rooms or laundry rooms. Since our house does not have the first two - laundry room it is! I am actually very smitten with our laundry room. I hope to some day paint the room, but am afraid of creating a smaller feeling... any advice there?We wanted to save the $200 PER cabinet/pedestal for under the washer/dryer when we first moved in. We had several appliances to purchases for the new construction home didn't have much cushion for the finances. Not too pleased when I have to get on my knees to load and unload. But I also wouldn't be pleased to spend $400 for the convenience. At least not in this market!

It isn't huge, but has everything I need. It has a great cabinet space for laundry essentials as well as rags and old sheets/towels for scraps.

Along with a deep utility sink and great counter tops. I use this space for storing Jackson's carseat and a basket with his hats and shoes. I store a few bins full of toys that Jax is too young to play with. Compliments to our nephews!

I painted two walls of our living room and would like to share that soon. I need to take a few photos during the day to get nice lighting! I am very happy with the color I chose!

Paint away girl... You have nice light cabinets so they would pop. Would love to have your counter space in there!

Great room! The utility sink is perfect. I wish we had one. Your son is very cute. I enjoyed the videos. Our son is about the same age too.

Oh man! I want that sink! I would love to have that in our utility room. I like your washer and dryer too!
