side window..I attach a pipe from my washing machine to take all the gray water to my garden..
french door leading to front of house on our side verandah, which I never use..
closet door and other door leading into house, there is also a spare loo hiding behind that little wall in there...
I didn't do any major changes, just painted the walls, which needed to be redone with spack filler first and sanded back, which is probably why we left it so long. All the tiling was done by the previous owner. So we didn't bother changing that. Whilst I was painting away, I thought how nice this room would have been as a sewing room. You see I don't have a craft room just for my sewing (not yet anyway). I would normally take my machine out when I needed it each and every time. I would use my dining table or leave it out in the family room, which needless to say can get a bit messy at times.

Any crafter will tell you there is NOTHING worse than having to set up everything, everytime you want to work and then pack it all away again. So in order to have my machine out ready to go for whenever I needed it, I decided to turn half the laundry into my sewing nook.
These white shelves were originally pine so had to paint them too.
My gorgeous print by Gail McCormack, the one on the shelves is hers too!
I wanted to put a table in there but it wouldn't fit because of the dryer. So out came the dryer.. it's an ugly looking thing anyway which I only use when I absolutely have to. So it's sitting in my wardrobe for now till I can sneek it into my hubby's garage.
Remember this shelf I painted up a while ago.. this is where it ended up!

It's not quite finished yet, but again, if I wait till I'm 100% finished with it, I'd never get to show you! Cause I'm NEVER 100% finished with anything..
I no longer have my daily mantra... (not that one anyway)
and I just love being in my laundry.. I practically live in there.. 6 days out of 7! I have so much washing all the time I don't even want to get started on that one..! take care, Maryann xxx

PS.. just want to add on, as a couple of gals have asked what colours I used on the table and chairs. Well the table was actually already green when I bought it.. so all Idid was distress it and for the shelves, it ended up being my own concoction of colours as the original green colour I bought turned out too torquoise so I ended up adding some black, white and a dark green to the mix. Sorry I can't give you a definite colour as I don't think I could replicate it exactly if I wanted to!
