Laundry Room Woes!

I am sure most of you have laundry room woes. My biggest woe - It is not a room! It is a "closet". How do you store things and keep it functional too? Oh and did I mention everything has to color coordinate for me. When things do not, well I tend to suffer from visual distraction. It mentally clutters up my mind so I can not perform the task at hand. With that in mind, I decided I needed a color scheme. I chose white, navy and taupe. The walls of this laundry "closet" were painted taupe and had a cute border of laundry hanging out to dry so I used that to work with. Unfortunately it only had one wire shelf in it (which is way too high for a vertically challenged person) so I knew I needed to add a smaller shelf at a lower height to put my detergent, downy, oxiclean and misc laundry goods on. I stuck with the navy and white color scheme for all of the containers and it truly makes a difference. Overall I am very happy with the end result. What do you think?

Getting started

Trying to start anything can be such a production sometimes. I am sure so many of you know what I an talking about..... Can you believe I created this blog back in February and I am just now starting to post? Well when you work, have kids and nonstop projects on your daily to do list , this kind of thing is bound to happen. I am hoping to use this blog to share some of the things I create with all my friends who always ask how and I hope to make some new friends that share a passion for creating on a dime! Now we have to hope that I will post on a regular basis .........
