I Have A Dream.... (about my Laundry Room)


Don't you love this sink?  Is that a laundry sink?  Look, it even has a little pitcher of cream next to it for a mid-day facial if you're in the mood.  How can you not be in that laundry room?

I HAVE A DREAM... That one day this laundry room will rise up and live out the true meaning of its purpose... 

Yep, all 6 kids laundry there resides... so do the rags and cleaning supplies and my frustrations.

I HAVE A DREAM... That one day the towels and socks from all corners of my house will be folded at a waist high table of efficiency...


8 family members.... is there even a qusetion?

I HAVE A DREAM... That one day, even my little squatty laundryroom piled high with 8 peoples dirty laundry will be transformed into a homemakers oasis of blissful duty...


That's me, finishing laundry... we ONLY wear white clothes in our house... 

I HAVE A DREAM... That one day my 6 children will live in a home that will not have a laundry room as ugly as sin, but one that hides it's contents and has character!


I HAVE A DREAM.... That one day I will not be embarrassed to show all of you the sad cave I call my laundry room...

I HAVE A DREAM... That one day I will have TWO Red washers and TWO Red Dryers and a butler or maid to actually run them! 

I HAVE A DREAM.... And it's getting closer to coming true... BECAUSE... Mr. Organized's walk in closet wall shares the back wall of my laundry room!  AND he might... in the not so distant future (but probably after the new year)... walk home to a hole in that wall... oops!!  AND... his clothes will be relocated to dressers and a bar in my closet (how kind of me to share!).

Today just a dream.... but keep tuning in ladies.... there's only so much a gal can take before her mountain of laundry causes her to go bonkers and do something rash like smash a wall down.  Fair warning's been given to Mr. Organized.  Pretty Organizer is planning a pretty budget tight expansion:)

I think a more realistic dream is that some day you can make the 6 kids do their own darn laundry :) Good luck!
P.S. When you are done with the makeover on your laundry room come do mine (I will have plenty of Diet Dr. Pepper and QUALITY chocolate).

Oh yeah and instead of the sink in picture 1, I want that cabinet for my downstairs bathroom! Oh yeah, the downstairs. Maybe by the time all 4 are in college it will get FINISHED by big daddy!!!!!!!!!

FYI-The deal is... when kids hit 10, they do their own laundry! SO, I've kicked 2 out of my routine, I just still have to house their STUFF!... somehow those clothes never quite make it to the laundry basket!

I have a dream that I will one day soon have a laundry room. ha ha ;) right now I am lucky if the "closet" where we keep our washer & dryer door shuts its so small! I am so not creative I am hoping that by the time I have to start making decorating decisions you would have rubbed off on me and my house have a little "STYLE" to her! Blessings

At least you have a laundry *room*! My washer and dryer are tucked in the corner of the utility room with the huge furnace, water softener, water heater, etc., etc.,

No magazine-worthy laundry room is ever gonna happen there. Waaah. :-(

Amen sister! I have that dream also! You should see mine... it is a work in progress, I'll have to show my husband these pics and tell him I want it to look like one of these! He will NOT like you! I think the first pic is the one I will show him! ha ha :)

I'm right there with you! I don't have 8 people in my house, only 4, but I really want a nicer laundry room. It's one of those "hall closet laundry rooms" so I don't have a lot of room either. It's just wide enough for the two machines and about 9" in between them. But it is deep enough that you can set a laundry basket in front of the dryer and the door will still shut. :)
I've been dreaming of what to do in there too, so I can't wait to see what you do!

Oh my! I'm very excited about this. You MUST keep us posted. But that gets me thinking, sometimes I love decorating/organizing small rooms the best. Maybe I'll take on my Laundry room now....but I'll leave the wall smashing to you. Let me know how it goes.

Fun blog! I don't think your laundry room is that bad...I have my in a dank, dark corner of my basement. But, I, too, have dreams of making it a lovely space just for me one day!
