Laundry room revisited

Before:

Mom had asked today why did I buy the crock for the Oxiclean if I was just going to leave the bucket up there. Good point. I was waiting for the perfect "bucket" to use for garbage. Seems I had it outside this whole time! :)
After:

Even a basket to gather pens and change in a lost and found setting.
Next up? Paint the rusting lid to the dryer. Wow. Didn't realize how much rust was there until I scrubbed it today! Wow. Time to paint it!!
And a little more:
You'll notice not all of the collapsible baskets are out now. Only two. One for reds and whites.

Here is where I tucked the others until needed. I probably should have hung them in full site for kids and husbands. However if all goes well we shall train then where their home is when not in use :)

I have one more plan for this room. The idea came from here http://southernhospitalityblog.com/my-laundry-room-makeover-finale/
I have to see if mine needs one more coat of paint or not at this point.
I have to say I LOVE a separate laundry room with a door however the next house shall have one twice this size... And a big pantry.
A girl can dream can't she?

Not sure the real color can stay with they yellow. I think it clashes.

Sunday morning rearranging

Before. The soap is on the opposite side of the washer opening. Not horrible, not nit convenient either. So I got a bee in my bonnet to rearrange today.

After. The shelf on the shelving unit was dropped to have the soap be at the level of the washer. The Oxiclean crock is moved to the shelf as well.

Better view if the soap and Oxiclean crock.

The ONLY issue I may have with this is that my softener is in the overhead cabinet on the opposite side. Easy remedy will be to shift the contents around and have it over the washer again.

The other thing that may interfere us the drying rid is now directly over the washer. Means I have to put clothes away more than once a week. Hum. Small price to pay, right?? Maybe.
