Laundry room "mostly" finished

Yea! I love my new laundry room. Well I guess I shouldn't say new, it's just kind of a makeover. You remember I got a new washer and dryer and painted the room. Well I have just been putting the finishing touches in there now.

There is a picture of those beauties. I have really loved them, but, you do have to remember I was using 20 year old ones before.Here is my new sink and tile counter my hubster did for me. And, look there above the sink, I needed some place to hang things to dry so hubster did that for me too. Gotta love it.Then for the "Mudroom side" of the room. I got this fabric at JoAnn's. I covered the bench with some quilt batting and then stapled the fabric on top and trimmed with a board around the edge.
Then I made a little curtain to hide some things under my fold-out table. I can hide alot of stuff back there.The baskets on the shelf above the bench holds hats, gloves and scarves.
This little cabinet hides the fold out ironing board I made from one that hangs over a door.I don't know about you but we have winter here. I always have wet gloves and hats when the family comes in from the cold. I bought this shelf thingy from Walmart years ago and it works so well to dry and warm up the hats and gloves. Just place it over a heating vent. Everyone puts their wet items on a shelf and the heat blows up through the vent and dries all three shelves of gloves and hats. It works great. In the summer I just put it away under the fold-out table, behind the curtain.
In most of the pics you can see I got a new rug also. I ordered it from Overstock.com. I got one that almost covers the whole floor this time. I am tired of wet boots making a puddle of muddy water on my tile. Hopefully this will help.
If you would like to see what the room looked like before you can go to my laundry room show and tell post.
