Without further ado, here are some of the before pictures:
I will admit, that I did do a little organizing before I took these pictures. I had forgotten to take the official "before" photo. So, if you can imagine, the dog stuff in the wicker basket was all a jumbled mess on that shelf, and there were no soda can holders, only the boxes that they came in. Also, in the top picture, the napkins/hand towels were not nicely folded and there was no little basket for the dishwasher tabs. Sorry, I cheated a bit!
Here are the after (intermediate) photos:
|Added a rug for a little color/homey-ness|
|Placed napkins/hand towels in canvas drawers and laundry stuff in the drink bucket|
|Placed cleaning stuff into bins|
|Used the newly created space for food overflow :)|
I still plan to replace the shelf above the washer/dryer with two shelves. The current one is so high up, and too deep. I can't reach anything that gets shoved back there. I plan to paint over the stark white walls with maybe a nice blue/gray color to match the rug. And I'd also like to redo the shelves opposite the washer/dryer to create some space for the ironing board, broom and swiffer!
Ok, so it wasn't as short of a post as I thought originally, sorry! But, stay tuned for more updates as the budget allows ;)
