Where You Live Friday - Laundry Room

This week, Kelly at Kelly's Korner is featuring playrooms, bonus rooms, laundry rooms or any extra rooms you may have in your house on her Show Us Where You Live home tour.

I'm showing our laundry room. One thing I had high on my want list when we were house hunting was a laundry room, not a laundry closet or any type of outdoor laundry room, but an actual laundry room. We found that in this house, but for our next house, I change that. I want a laundry room that is its own seperate room - NOT a room coming in from the garage. Basically that turns the laundry room into a hallway that you must keep clear and come in and out of several times a day. I didn't realize that when we were house hunting. However, it is better than a closet I think and it does basically meet our needs.

Looking from the living room through the laundry room.

I like having the hanging rod, but it could be twice as long sometimes.

I recently found this sign/hanger at Hobby Lobby 1/2 off. It's great storage for empty hangers, but mostly I bought it to hang my keys on because I'm always losing them.

As you can see, the room also doubles as the cats room. We can actually tell him to go to his room and he will.

I got this sign several years ago from one of the home party companies (can't rember the name of it now, not sure if it's still in business).
I recently added wall words and pictures to the blank wall in the laundry room. I bought cheap black frames at Wal-Mart and blew up some of my favorite seasonal pics of the boys. I used my Cricut to cut out the vinyl adhesive letters. I really like how it turned out. I wish more people could actually see it, but usually when we have company, we have the cat shutup in the room and never open the door.

Thanks for stopping by. To see my other rooms posted previously, click on the Show Us Where You Live Friday tag.
