O happy day! My new upstairs laundry room is complete and already hard at work washing clothes and linens. What a wonderful difference this makes. Since taking these pics I have installed a shower rod to hang clothes right out of the dryer and a shelf to hold the laundry stuff. And I moved all my toilette articles to the sink there, so I could find things when I need them.
We had this skimpy walk in closet in the master and I had Alberto the Magnificent install shelves for our clothes. We have a big closet in the Yarn Room for long pants/dresses etc, but these are our everyday clothes and obviously we still have room for more. This closet has a window and a ceiling light, the only lit closet in the house. 52 years ago they didn't need to see their clothes, I guess. Curtains went up to protect the clothes from the sun.
I love wire shelves and have four of them with one more on order. This was in Dave's room upstairs, temporarily, until the laundry got moved from the garage. Now it fills a great storage need, and gets that Christmas tree out of the Yarn Room. Having only a one car garage is such a boon, since it prevents collecting stuff by you know who. Those paint cans came with the house and so far not one of them is the gray wall paint we need, so why are we keeping them? Oy.
Most importantly, I got rug pads for the stairs and sticky pads to keep them in place. One is already undone, but easily fixed. This helped Tony conquer his fears of the stairs, meaning I don't have to carry his little self. 22 pounds is a lot going up or down.
I feel like we are finally moved in now, and it's such a great relief to have no more immediate fixes to complete.
The big day to list our other house has arrived and we'll begin crossing our fingers for a buyer soon. Woowoo!
