dream house | the laundry room | almost makes perfect

todays dream house post is really gonna piss off my mom — she relishes in the fact that we come over every weekend for laundry and dinner, but we’re dreaming about having our own laundry. you laundry owners might forget what its like to stain something and have to wait until the next time you’re doing laundry to wash it, or what its like to have a pile of dirty dish rags waiting to be cleaned. omg, i can’t wait to have a washer and dryer again.

so here are some of my favorite simple and modern laundry rooms.

DIY recycled fabric covered notebooks

i make so many to-do lists. like daily ones, weekly ones, i have them scattered all over the place and even when i barely check off anything, i find myself feeling so much less stressed when i’m writing down everything i need to do, whether i do it or not. otherwise i’ll wake up in the middle of the night worrying about calling sirius radio before the renew my subscription at the un-discounted price.

another thing i have all over the house is bags full of clothes to donate. we have one so large in our bathroom that we can barely open the door, so i decided to scour a bag and use some of the retired old t-shirts to give them new life! don’t worry, there’s still plenty to donate. so with back to school time, i thought lining some notebooks in fabric would be fun for me, and be fun for you too. win win.
