Laundry room makeover

What does a laundry room makeover have to do with fashion?


In my previous post I mentioned that I am going to embark on a mission to transform my living space in the hope that a cleaner, better organized, more uplifting home environment will help me to feel more motivated to look and feel my best every day. I know that sounds odd. After all, what impact can a laundry room makeover have on how you look and feel? But like I said in my previous post, I do believe that people can be dragged down and made depressed by spending time in a dis-organized and dirty home environment. And when you’re in a depressed frame of mind you tend to care a lot less how you look. So your fashion choices and your style decisions are negatively affected by your depressed mood. Not that it’s a crisis to be poorly dressed; but you’ll probably end up feeling even more depressed on account of going out in public looking like you don’t think very much of yourself.

So I am planning a laundry room makeover

I started on my mission to transform my living space today. I cleaned up the laundry room and the entrance hall closet. Now that I have them cleaned I want to fix them up a little bit. So I’ve been looking at laundry room decor pictures to get some ideas for my laundry room makeover. And I have to admit, I didn’t know laundry rooms could look so nice and cozy. I’ve never necessarily cared one way or another what my laundry room looked like. Probably because I’ve always lived in rented apartments and I always have that sense that the place isn’t really mine. My apartments have always just been a roof over my head. They’ve never really been a home.

I like the idea of hanging something on the wall in the laundry room that has a clever phrase or inspiring thought. But I’ve been reluctant to hang things on the wall of my apartment so I don’t know. I’d first have to figure out a way to hang things that don’t require putting holes in the wall. I’ve tried those Command hook things for hanging other stuff but I don’t know if they can be used to hang pictures. Will have to investigate.

I live in a 1645 square feet townhouse apartment so as you can imagine I don’t have a “laundry room” so much as I have a utility room. It’s a small space that’s just big enough to fit the washer and dryer with a little space left with which to work. So there’s not going to be all that much that I’ll be able to do. Certainly my laundry room makeover results won’t resemble any of the laundry rooms in the above picture. But if I can get it to look just a little nicer than it does presently that will be good enough.

Doesn’t really look like there’s much I can do with it and right now I have zero ideas; but I’ll keep looking at pictures to get ideas and hopefully get started on my laundry room makeover soon.

Any suggestions for what I can do? Would love to hear them!

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
