I'm baaaack! Arrived at 5.45 am today after an uncomfortable night on the flight from Guanzhou via Bangkok. I'm soooooo glad to back home. Wille got up as soon as I arrived by taxi so we had a really nice breakfast & tv morning. My Sweet boy, he is on fall break this week and still got up at 6.30. Awww!
Now I'm trying to catch up on unpacking, cleaning, laundry and e-mails. I just got this great one and couldn't wait to show you right away. My own before and afters continue tomorrow or later this week.
Remember Leslie who wrote in needing help with her laundry area which she felt was too cluttered? I gave her my two cents in this post and just look at the before, my suggestion and after! Here's the e-mail:
I'm sorry it took me so long to re-do my laundry area, but I couldn't find any nice white pails that I liked, so I ordered some square ones with lids and they didn't arrive until last Thursday.
I love these square pails with lids–the cleaners etc. fit better in the square pails as opposed to the round ones. These are food-grade so the cat crunchies are safe! I did find new homes for some of the items outside of the laundry area, and downsized some of my cleaning supplies into smaller plastic squeeze bottles and spray bottles. I printed the labels on my printer and punched them out with a round punch and attached to the bins and pails with twine.
I still may tweak a few items on the lowershelf but overall I love the uncluttered laundry nook now… So much better, don't you think?!!
Wow! Isn't that the greatest transformation with just a few new additions and a bit of decluttering?!
I love the way Leslie took the ideas I had for her space and adapted them to work for her. Those pails are great! Adore the diy labels! Love the new detergent jar, the addtion of the flowers and the overall white, clean look! Actually I think I'm having her laundry room now! Hand it over Leslie!
