October is here! Which means leggings and boots and the much anticipated, One Room Challenge! I debated and debated and debated participating this time because I’m searching deeply for my Best Yes these days and I was nervous to add something else to my plate. BUT, I really really wanted to join in with the oh-so talented Linda at Calling it Home and the amazing other bloggers!
This summer (and up until last month), when thinking about the challenge, I had planned to do my porch, but the more I thought about what was really driving me crazy and what would help us RIGHT NOW, this area right here is about to push me over the edge.
As soon you walk back to our bedroom, all you see is clothes! The laundry room is on the way to our bedroom and right across from our bathroom (that I still need to blog about!). They are literally everywhere—on the bathtub, hanging from the shower, on the floor— needless to say, we are in desperate need of some organization and a flat out PLAN!
That alone won me over because it will force us to get it done! (Confession: I don’t do the laundry, Russ does. But I do like some organization.)
(at least someone is happy to be in this room! )
You may recall last year’s One Room Challenge in which I planned to make over the office but instead changed to the deck!
But what I loved most about the One Room Challenge is that it introduced me to Summer, Beth, Krystine, and Mallory!
I don’t have a beautiful mood board (yet, I hope) like I should but I have some terrible before pictures that are super embarrassing.
If you want to follow along on Pinterest, you can see some of my inspiration!
So here we go! Six weeks to make over this laundry room on a teeny tiny budget! We can do it! I can’t wait to see what everyone else is going to share!
Thank you, again, Linda, for hosting!!
Can’t wait to see your laundry room makeover! Laundry rooms are always so fun to re-do. I’ll be following along and am also participating for the first time. We’re tackling our bonus/media room!
Thank you, Jane! Excited to see your transformation, as well!!! 🙂
What an adorable little boy! You are going to be so excited when your laundry room makeover is complete! That’s what I did for my April ORC and I’ve not been disappointed – by the way, my hubs does most of our laundry too! You have a great room with lots of potential! This time, I’m going to finish my daughter’s basement bedroom! Can’t wait!
Thank you, Sheila!! He is a MESS!
I cannot wait to check yours out for inspiration!! How exciting for you and your daughter! 🙂
(And I’m glad my husband’s not the only one! Haha!)
What a lovely space this is going to be. I cannot wait to see your progress and how it all unfolds.
I too am participating in the One Room Challenge. My challenges? I just moved to a completely new state (Texas) last week and therefore have no idea where to source things other than Wal Mart and Home Depot. 🙂 I am currently battling strep throat and just want to lay around and eat soup as opposed to painting a 30 year old polyurethaned oak coffered ceiling that has never before seen paint. The accompanying powder room rivals the worst gas station stall ever. But a bonus is that the previous owners installed a wine glass and bottle holder on the ceiling of the bathroom. I kid you not. Come take a peek.
Oh, wow, Laura! Prayers coming your way!!!!
i LOVE your honesty in this space….the way we all really love behind our blogs. I am doing our laundry room too and I cannot wait to follow yours and see how this all comes together! xoxo.
Thank you, Tara!! You should our bedroom! Haha! Can’t wait to see yours!
