the all-purpose room gets a makeover




This room was not a selling point when we bought this house. I like to let laundry pile up until it's 3 feet above the hamper and then do it all in one long day while I watch Hitchcock movies and eat black bean nachos. Unfortunately, this room can't hide that all-day process like a nice basement laundry room might. I didn't see a basement laundry room in my immediate future, though, so I updated this room. The Country Blue painted border was making me depressed.

Here's the room now, minus a cabinet above the toilet, depressing border, and towel rack. Pedestal sink to come (soon, hopefully). The current counter/sink situation is blocking the heat vent. Nothing should ever block a heat vent in a Michigan house.

Looks good. I think that was a wise move removing the border! And you are so right about heat registers. Never, never block them. Sometimes I just sit in front of them and wallow in the wonderful, delicious heat.

I need spring to come soon.

I love it! Nice colors and towel holder. The best part is the LACK of a border!
