Ok, princess I am not, but Bedraggled, sleep deprived queen of my tiny castle? You bet. If you checked out my last post, you know that
we I have some serious laundry issues. I don’t know about you but I find it impossible to keep up on our laundry. There always seems to be a mountain of laundry to wash and fold on any given day. I have been off on maternity leave for a year and I am heading back to work in a few short weeks which means that our laundry situation is not going to get any better any time soon.
I spent a lot of time thinking and planning and pinteresting (is that a word?) and came up with a great solution. A tower. A beautiful laundry tower. I got the idea here. Now the original one was designed to be a dresser. I loved the idea and had my husband build me this:
Isn’t it beautiful? Well, you know, for a laundry tower. It works perfectly for our family. Mom and Dad share the top one and everyone else gets their own. I am hoping if I am a really good girl that Santa will bring me a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas so I can apply some really cute vinyl lettering, but for the time being I am going to use some patterned scrapbooking paper to add an initial to the front of each basket.
Having this lovely creation has made a huge difference in keeping our laundry area clean and tidy. It has also made it easy to implement a laundry day for my two older girls. Especially because they can just grab their basket throw it straight into the washer, the dry and then take it right into their rooms to be folded and put away (insert blissful sigh here). Every little bit helps!
Do you have a mountain of laundry? Any tips or tricks that help you keep it under control?
