Mini Makeover For My Laundry Room

As you can see from these two photo's, (above and below) my laundry/mud room was a little cluttered with no cute factor at all.  Don't get me wrong, it is very functional.  I do laundry here, hang up coats, store dog and cat food, wash things in the utility sink, throw family room clutter in there when company comes, (oops, I am giving TMI).
Because the cleaning/de-cluttering bug usually hits me in January I decided that this room needed some attention.
I did some throwing away, putting away and deep cleaning, even moving the washer and dryer and mopping under them.  No more cobwebs, dust or clutter was to be found when I got finished.

I didn't buy one thing to enhance my laundry room, I just did some "in-home shopping" and came up with some items to 'cutsify' (that is not a word according to spellcheck but I use it all the time) my laundry space.  I also made the Laundry sign and the Laundry Schedule sign using my Silhouette Cameo and boards I already had on hand.
I also added a Scentsy candle warmer which made its smell as good as it looks.  I just may have to actually do some laundry just so I can hang out in here.

Believing in Tomorrow

I know it is only January 18th but I can't help but look forward to springtime.  Pictured below is a photo of some pansies I planted last fall but forgot about because they are on part of the deck that can't be seen from inside.  What a pleasant surprise to go out into the sunshine today and discover a little bit of springtime.

Sometimes it is the little things that inspire and give hope.
