Before Pictures (I am a little embarrassed to post these first three of my completely messy, unorganized room)
And now these three are after we emptied it out. You can see the damage and nastiness.
Jack tore out the damaged drywall and put in new. We had paint left from painting the house when we moved in, so we used that to paint. I took out the shelved and painted them crisp clean white. We put in new vinyl flooring. There was already pegboard but no hooks. So, I painted it blue and added hooks for organization. We threw stuff away. We cleaned. I organized. Back in April I bought a sewing machine at a yard sale. When I was a little girl, my great aunt, Toss, taught me how to sew basic things. But that was a long time ago. However, I really want to try to learn to sew again. My mother-in-law is an incredible seamstress and I know she'll help me, too. I found a tutorial on Pinterest to turn diaper boxes into lined storage bins. It involved spray adhesive to put material on the outside and sewing a liner for the inside. I was nervous, but I figured something for the laundry room would be a great thing to practice my sewing on! I think they turned out great. The sewing machine and I still have a long way to go. Our relationship is still quite shaky, but I have high hopes! Anyway, the laundry room turned out great. I am really very happy with it! Here are the after pictures:
These are the boxes I made!
Here are the side-by-side pictures:
And a different view of the two side areas and the pegboard walls.
