There is an excitement here!! Can you feel it?!?! It’s the happiness of buying yourself something that you have wanted for a really, really long time in a bit of a snap buying decision.
It must be how conquistadors felt.
I saw. I wanted. I conquered.
Exhibit A, the new eye candy in MY laundry room!!!!
Gasp. Beautiful, I know. And if material things could bring joy, then my friends, I am the joyfulest being on the planet right now. (insert slow tear coming from my eye.)
These are the LG Big Mama-jammas! I bought them from Sears who installed them the VERY. NEXT. DAY. Amazeballs.
Much more suitable for a mother of 4 (make that 5) testosterone fueled, dirty, stinky, XX chromosome creatures. It’s like I have serious street cred now.
The only one who’s sad is the small cart I built a few months ago that doesn’t fit anymore.
And since we’re dishing about the laundry room, here is the tile sans grout.
This choice didn’t get many votes, but I think it looks fabulous! It’s a statement, but it could also go with a bunch of styles.
I was able to get the tile cut using a Dremel sawmax. No need to rent!! Yay!
I also managed to add trim to the doors and paint them a black gloss from Benjamin Moore. More on that later.
And the threshold got some MUCH needed TLC with some left over tiles I found cleaning up the garage.
Here she is now…
I’m making progress, but there is still a few items on the to-do list.
-A light fixture. I’ve pretty much decided that this one just can’t be forced. I will know when I see it. I just can’t pull the trigger on something sight unseen.
-Art and decor. That wall is screaming for something fun!
-Hardware for the cabinets. I’ve purchased a few things, but again, you can’t force perfection.
-Grout. Like, duh.
-Possibly a wood top for the washer-dryer set… of course the light switch is right in the way, so we’ll see how to work around that.
Even with a list that long, I’m still feeling so happy with how it’s all coming together!
Any great purchases you made over the holiday??
Last year, I bought a new Dyson. Love, love, love me some Dyson! I’m definitely becoming a Black Friday Statistic. You’re welcome Wall Street.
Tootles for now!! Happy Creating! Jessica
