I Have A Dream:: A Laundry Room Speech

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?

Yes, old friends.... you may recognize this post. This week is absolutely full and I'm begging for a midweek day of rest. Of course, the words are no less applicable today as they were when originally posted. Enjoy!


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:)

oh, those dreams are good...so I say to you, "ask not what you can do for your laundry room, but what can your laundry room do for you"....especially after a lovely makeover!! haha..

Look forward to seeing the dream come true!

As a fellow mother of 6, I have a similar dream. My new laundry room includes a mini fridge (for Diet coke), a Cookie warming drawer, and a conservatively sized recliner.

We have a big house and a wimpy laundry room. And though I can only claim three children & a husband, everyone goes through two sets of clothes a day and we are perpetually behind. I would like to think that if my laundry room was bigger & prettier, I would be caught up.

I can't wait to see what you do!

Love the dreams!! What would your future laundry room be without them? I'm in your shoes at the moment: trying to give a catch-all room for junk and miscellaneous stuff a purpose and a personality. Shouldn't it be able to have both?? Keep dreaming. You'll get there.

(Men don't really need closet space, anyway). :-)

y'know, that all white thing might be an idea. It would certainly make sorting easier.
