Laundry Room

Hello Everyone!  Can I first say THANK YOU for all the sweet comments I have been getting!  You all made me smile...especially since I don't get a whole lot of comments!  THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!  I love you all!

I hope you all were able to have a fabulous Father's Day and I really hope you spoiled them:)  I feel like I have been MIA the past few weeks...things have been so busy! I thought I would have a nice lazy summer...boy was I WRONG! It has been really busy!  Oh well...I guess that will make the summer go by quickly??!!

On to more important things...like MAKEOVER MONDAY!!  This is from my darling cousin Carrie.  She needs help with her Laundry Room/Kitchen (you will see what I mean).  

This is what Carrie had to say...which made me laugh:

You said you want makeover Monday photos!  Well here's an adventure for you.

What do you do when your laundry room and your kitchen are THE SAME ROOM!?! 

The Pictures:

I have to say she did kind of stump me!!  I have been thinking about it for awhile and searching for pictures for the things I was thinking.  Here are a few things I came up with!  ALL pictures are courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens. 

This is one that I'm sure you thought of also.  You could attach a small rod UNDER your cabinets and put some drapes all around the area so it is completely hidden.  I would use rings so that it is easy to open and close.  A fun red and white stripe might be nice in your kitchen...I have seen these at Target.  BUT  I know that you sew, and it might be easier/cheaper to get the right amount of fabric and sew them...otherwise you will have to hem whatever you buy.

Now for this one...it is pretty much the same thing as above but you are taking the rod to the TOP and hiding everything, including the cabinets.  This would trick people into thinking that it is a window that you are hiding for privacy...you could even add a lamp in there to make it look like sun is coming through...TOTALLY KIDDING about the lamp:)

This is the closest picture I could find for what I was thinking...but you could get or make some screens to make it look like these cabinets!  I know you can easily make them...which might be good since you need such a specific width.  Here are a few different instructions: here, here, and here.  There are a MILLION how-to's you can do...some with fabric and some with window shutters...the possibilities are ENDLESS!

I hope that some of these ideas have helped you!  And PLEASE send pictures of what you end up doing! I will be anxious to see what you end up doing!
