I tamed the beast!! Thanks for all of the inspiration!

Well, this weekend really was a Labor Day weekend - we seemed to get a lot done - hooray.

I finally tamed my laundry room beast. We're so lucky in that we have a mainfloor laundry room, but it was always so cluttered with other stuff and junk and things that needed sorting that I hated going in there; it felt so flippin' claustrophobic :

Well, I decided to 'separate' it into 3 sections; One is the 'mudroom - I took a piece of remnant lino, and laid it on the floor in one corner, and then put shelves 6 high up against the wall for *everybodies* boots and shoes - over that is a pegboard for hats,scarves, mitts etc. At the other end of the lino are the Recycling boxes...

In my laundry section I have three baskets to separate before washing, and my clothes airer (right next to the window, and over the heating vent ) and the washer and dryer. Then, next to the dryer I have a large tote for my fabrics and sewing machine, and a tote containing all of the supplies for the dogs. I also purchased a larger garbage can with lid.

The best news....I did some work for a friend, and was able to purchase all the supplies at a great price without dipping into our monthly budget

If it wasn't for all of the inspiration that I've received here from all of your stories I would never have seized this intiative, so THANK YOU soooo much! I really feel as though I can tackle things now...on to the kitchen cupboards

well, the room used to be a bedroom - according to the elderly gentleman who was born in this house in 1920...so it's definitely bigger than average.

I'm working on pics....but then you'd see just how many pairs of shoes we have
