First off, I cleared out Kera's room in preparation for her new-to-us bunk bed that Erik's parents brought down over the weekend. She'd been sleeping on the trundle that actually belongs under Lindsay's day bed, so I jumped at the chance for her to have a real bed when they offered to bring it down. So, we had to move the trundle back into Lindsay's room and clear out enough space in Kera's room to set up the bed.
Remember how I said I was prepared for Valentines day a bit back? Here is a picture (finally!) of the cards we made. See how the pencil kinda looks like the arrow? How cute is that? And perfect for the large writing typical of kindergarteners!
See the tan? Yeah.
More tan. My ultimate plan is to replace the blue basket with one of those cool three-sorter laundry hamper things. I think that would look sweet.
Okay, I use to have a wicker organizer/cupboard thing on the wall where that picture is, but it was breaking and I took it down. I love how more open it is now. I bought that ironing board hanger, but decided it wasn't sturdy enough for my ironing board. I stuck the iron in there and then used the little hooks (meant for the ironing board) to hang my re-useable grocery bags which are pleased to finally have a home.
I bought the blue basket thingys to organize all the
crap stuff that I store up on that shelf: extra rags, cleaners I may never use again, plant fertilizer, large bags, etc. I think it looks much cleaner with those things. Erik likes his cordless drill in here too so I put it in that cute wicker basket. lol. Then I got two little basket thingies to organize my rags and little things that go on that little shelf, it kindof brings it all together.
The new picture says, "Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Always" and its blue and tan, so its perfect. I kind of like having a little inspiration in a room I spend SO much time.
The only thing left is to hang our Mexico plates once I get the hangers. I think I'll put them on the wall next to the door, in that first picture. I love my "new" laundry room, it makes me happy.Okay, so I'm gonna finish out my domestic diva-ness now by vacumming and mopping the kitchen and then dusting!
