Magic cottage weekend renos

Hola!

I trust you all had a wonderful weekend? Mr. G and i have been busy revamping the laundry room.  It was pretty scary looking and was jam packed with stuff including two large cabinets which took up lots of space. This old cabinet below became a black hole which held stuff for 18 years.  It was so jam packed with stuff I had forgotten about them.

Here’s the ancient wooden cupboard.  Yesterday i put it on the side of the road to see if there would be any takers……so far none. I also have it up on a few FB pages (free and garage sale sites).It’s pretty big and super heavy.  I don’t like to see things going to the dump if someone else could use the item. This piece would be great in a studio, garage or basement.

The laundry room’s “BEFORE” was too scary for me to post…..here’s the after.  We bought cabinets for the laundry room with cubbies from Target. There’s another unit on the opposite wall. Since this is a pretty old house (75 years old) there are not too many closets or built in storage spaces.

The cubbies are great because you can add a tag like i did here which designates what items live inside of them.  In my old cupboards i just jammed everything in. I even have a cubbie dedicated to art supplies so i can pull it out and bring it to the kitchen counter which is where i usually create my art.

We repainted the walls white to make the space look bigger and also retiled the floor so it looks fresh and clean. Tiling the floor is a bit hard on the knees but the end result is well worth it.

I’ve decided that i most likely should ban all horizontal surfaces in the house since i tend to pile things on any flat surface!  Ha!

Are you working on decluttering your space too? You’ll feel so much better when you do!

Love, Violette xo
