Here is a picture of the before. Yes, really really before. Like, a couple of days ago, when I was mid-laundry....I had to make it look bad, people!
This is like a normal Monday morning, seriously. Come over and you'll see...not pretty....
This counter, that you see, goes along the whole back wall, and is becoming a trap for all-things-junky. Its been collecting all our beach stuff/towels over the summer, and all my fabric samples and scraps over the course of the past 6 months. I really wanted a better laundry sorter, so I got these cute little rolling carts from Ikea ($14/ea!!), and Ikea's Expedit shelf--just the 4 shelfer.
As you can see, I put the fabric in the fun green boxes, and the towels on the shelves. All this will be hidden by this:
Ahh...deep breath of calmness coming over me....
The verdict is still out, in my mind, on Ikat fabric, but it seemed fun and funky for this project. I will send this off to Sue the Seamstress as soon as the fabric arrives, so she can create a long, velcroed skirt that will run the length of this counter. Watch for upcoming posts on this.
I also just ordered this rug (runner), in the mustard, for the floor, so this should be fun:
This weekend, we are painting this room (Benj Moore Northhampton Putty--the greenish color in this fabric), so hopefully you can watch for that soon too. I have some other things, in this laundry room, up my sleeve, so stay tuned!
