I really want to turn over a new leaf and show you some of the little updates we do around our house more often- whether or not they are done…. I’ve tried to do this before… I don’t know why I feel like everything has to be done before showing you, but I just have to suck it up and stop feeling that way… I haven’t posted over 70% of what we have done in the last 2 years, cuz nothing gets finished, and then I change my mind & start over so I can’t show you cuz it makes no sense…but no more!
I warn you, I do nothing in order… I get board and move around like a crazy lady! Okay, I give up, can you tell I am feeling insecure?! I am just going to have to move on! So, anyway… moving right on.
I haven’t mentioned the laundry room since we installed the restore cabinets 3 years ago and, they have been painted white for over 3 years now… but you’ve still never even seen them painted. Oh well, that isn’t happening today either…
What I do what to show you is a fun new rug I just found for in front of the washer and dryer.
I found it via Pinterest! It is from Urban Outfitters, and it was a screaming deal at only $34 buckaroos! It is called the Big Garden Printed Rug. I LOVE the colors! And since I have to deal with the orange tile, I am trying to make the best of it… fun colors, right?
The rug I have had in there is just a Walmart-fall-apart cheapo rug, and the rubber backing has been peeling off in a million tiny pieces and make a huge mess if it ever gets moved. And don’t even get me started about how messy it makes the washer and dryer when it gets washed… ugh! And yes, it isn’t pretty… at all.
The biggest issue when it comes to picking a rug for this space is that the door to the garage is so low that any pile rug gets caught, the door doesn’t open and it is just plain annoying… This new rug is a woven and printed rug without a pile and thankfully it doesn’t catch on the door. (a keeper if you ask me!)
The other thing I kind of like… some people may not feel the same way, but I feel like it sort of has a similar feeling to my living room rug. And so, I took a picture of my living room, at the same time that I put the laundry room rug down, this is what it looked like… (yes I am totally hyper aware that I desperately needed to sweep the floor before taking this picture… and maybe even put the laundry away….maybe, but really who likes to put the laundry away when you had to collect it, sort it, wash it, dry it, re-sort it… who has time to fold it and put it away?)
I still need to get one of those anti-slip rug mats for underneath, cuz it moves too much on the tile… but the girls are loving it… I kid you not when they saw it the ran in there and started dancing… I guess if it has that effect on people then I am okay with that!
Kitty loves it too… she broke it in with that crazy cat on drugs rub your face and back all over it like a weirdo thing (I’m just glad nobody caught me doing that, it would have been awkward.)
