Laundry Room Organized!

Happy Monday!

We had some Spring-like weather this weekend, and it was lovely to open up the windows a bit and let some fresh air in the house.  I think it helped to fuel my Spring cleaning kick, as I got busy organizing the laundry room this weekend.

I don’t know about you, but my laundry room is the first room you hit when you walk in the door, and it seems to be a dumping ground for everything – coats, hats, shoes, backpacks – oh, and laundry of course (my nemesis).  Very rarely is laundry “done” in my house – as in “complete” (unless we’re going on vacation – then it all seems to get done.  But then I’m left with a huge pile when we return and the vicious cycle continues).

I have been uber-inspired by all of the delightful organizing ideas and photos at A Bowl Full of Lemons.  I got my office whipped into shape, and moved on to the laundry room since I was tired of the stress of the mess!

So, let’s take a look! 

The “Before” – I should qualify this with the fact that this is a pretty tame before picture, and I would consider this relatively good compared to its usual state.

And then there is the coat cluster…

Nevermind the cabinet disorganization…

I’m happy to report that my laundry is DONE (as in COMPLETE), and my laundry room now looks like this:

And the cabinets? 

Is there a 12-step program for my addiction to chalk board labels?

And who doesn’t like a little pretty in their laundry room? 
Couldn’t resist a photo montage…

    I wanna live in your laundry room. Love the neatly organized and labeled bins!!!! Did I spy an afro wig in one of the before cabinet photos? The only reason I would recognize that is because we have one shoved in a drawer that I need to put into a Halloween bin somewhere, when the spring cleaning bug hits me!
