Laundry Room Curtain

Wow, it has been almost two years since Mr. Hearts installed the cabinets in the laundry room.  You can read about the project here.  Here are some new pictures because just today I made the curtain to hide the bins above the washer.  The bins hold out-of-season decorations, and Millie got into the boxes today to set out our winter decorations.

This is a picture taken today before the curtain was hung.  Come on in and feel at home - I didn't bother to clean up for you!

New deep red and cream flannel checkered curtain.  It matches the floor, which you can see in the last pics below.

I did clean up a little for this picture.  I am still amazed at how the cabinets fit the room almost perfectly with very little adjustment.  You can read in this post about these $250 cabinets we got off of Craigslist - after getting quotes from $10,000 to $17,000 for custom cabinets.  I love my old cabinets; they were the very same old-fashioned style I was asking the cabinetmakers to build, painted creamy yellow and all. 

And I am still loving this rolling laundry basket.  I bought it first and then had Mr. Hearts figure out a place for it.  It fits perfectly underneath the counter on which my grain mill sits.  The counter had to be lower so the grain mill would fit under the wall cabinet above.  The idea of this rolling laundry basket was that it would easily roll out the back door {just to the left} to carry wet laundry to the clothesline.  I found out that the rolling cart does not hang clothes on the line by iteself, imagine that!  This past summer the sun was a rare sight here, at least on days I did laundry, and when the sun came this fall, it was too cold to dry clothes in a timely manner.  But I still really like the basket and having an open wire basket where damp clothes / rags don't mold if they don't get laundered right away like they always did in a closed plastic bin, and I use the top valet bar for hanging clothes out of the dryer.

These two pics show the other side of the room.  Coat hooks, shelves, and cabinets galore!  Mr. Hearts planned it out well!
