Show Us Where You Live Friday - Laundry Room and Hall

Welcome to my laundry room!

One thing you can say for my laundry room - it's functional. One thing you cannot say for my laundry room - it's decorated. I'm getting there though.

I have an AWESOME washer and dryer. We bought them when we first moved in at a scratch and dent store locally for about half of the retail price!

My cute little lint trash can next to the dryer - it matches the trash can in my kitchen.

Our pile-o-stuff on top of the dryer is completely random. You can find anything from mail to license plates to Alabama's NCAA sanctions (haha Noah - now we know what you're doing at work!).

Can you tell Noah and I buy things in bulk?? There's really no other place in the house to store all of the things we hit up Sam's for, so it ends up here.

The other side of the massive storage rack - and once again, very random. It's mostly home repair things on this side, but you'll also find the occasional Halloween bowl. :)

You will usually always find a garbage bag full of cans tied to the back of this door...we try to collect cans for scrap metal.

All of our winter coats are always right next to the washer so we can grab them on the way out the door. However, come to think of it, I'm not really sure why they are there right now, when it is 95 degrees outside. :)

And I just had to show this part of the laundry room. I've mentioned before that Hardy (my dog) has this weird thing where he will chew the rubber cap off of the springy thing that stops the door and just leave it next to the spring. He doesn't eat it, he doesn't even really chew on it, he just sets it down. If we put it back on, he'll just take it back off. We are convinced that he has OCD.

While I do have a laundry room, I don't have a bonus room or play room - so I thought I'd tack my hallway on, since there's not a week for it.

Looking into the hall from the living room.

A little further down the hall - that picture is my absolute favorite of us (and is the one you see in my blog header!).

The room straight ahead in this picture is the spare bathroom, the room to the left of that is the office, and the room to the right of that is the guest bedroom. The room on the right closest to us is the laundry room, and the room to the left closest to us is the master bedroom.

There's not much to my hall, besides the Dirt Devil

and Hardy's beloved toy basket.

You'll often find him next to it doing this:

God love him. :)

Thanks for visiting! Stop by next week to see our master bedroom!

  12. We had a washer and dryer similar to yours. Unfortunately, the new owners of our house liked them too and we really wanted to sell to move across the country. They are now enjoying my beloved washer and dryer. I heart front loaders!
