I'm overjoyed to share a total mess of a space with you today.
Why am I overjoyed to show you my laundry room that I'm sure will get me nominated for one of those "she needs help" shows?
Because this discombobulated room is a normal (although admittedly a bit extreme) occurrence when a space lacks proper storage and organization ... this mess has nothing to do with our fire or rebuilding. Yay!! this is not a fire recovery post!!!!
So those are not staged photos. Really. Our laundry room can deconstruct in a split-second and turn into this stuff-strewn-space, probably because at its' "best" it isn't much different.
I'm an organized and neat-nic person. Hubby is very particular. Somehow though we've never managed to get our act together in this laundry room.
I thought it was a personal character flaw until I accepted that there isn't any way to organize a multi-purpose space when it has just one shelf and one cabinet that you have to awkwardly twist your torso to access.
So we are tackling this beast of a space. Taking longer than expected. Lots of obstacles like plumbing, ductwork, and soffits that can't be moved but limits where you can install fittings.
We'll figure it out. Has to be better than the "before"! Hopefully I'll have an "after" to share next week. Just wanted to let you know where I've disappeared to ... I may be that lump under the pile of clothing in the before pic.
Is your laundry room dedicated to the business of cleaning clothes or is it a multi-purpose space? How is your laundry room set-up? Have any organizing tips you can share that might help me in this space?
