Thanks for all your suggestions for my laundry area. I was at Target last week and they have a whole section of Closetmaid storage items back in the Home Storage section. I ended up purchasing 2 small cabinets that I can put next to the washer and dryer, and a five-tier shelf for the area across from it. I decided I needed the storage more than I needed a place to fold clothes. I may change my mind later, but that is the plan for now.
My next decorating dilemma is plant shelves. They are all over the new house. There is one in the foyer, one in every bedroom and one in the family room. The one in our master bedroom spans the length of one entire wall, and it's a long wall:
I don't want to put too much stuff up there and make it look really crowded and junky, but I also don't want to just leave it empty either. Any suggestions for this area would be much appreciated!
The big move is scheduled for the 28th, but I have another important day coming up next week. Monday the 23rd is the day I turn the big FIVE OH!! That's right, I am turning 50! I can hardly believe it, it just does not seem possible. In honor of that auspicious occasion, I will be doing a giveaway. Stay tuned for details to come.
The rest of this week will be another busy week. I've got more packing to do, and I may drive over to the new house for a couple of days to help Mr. S. with more painting. The poor guy has been at the new house for over a week sleeping on an air mattress, and when he isn't at work, he is painting! He really wants to get it all done before the furniture gets moved in, and we are keeping our fingers crossed that he makes it.
Have a great week everyone.
