One Giant Leap
If a House Tour of my house existed on Apartment Therapy, my “Most embarrassing element” would be my laundry room. It’s in the basement, it’s carpeted, it’s utilitarian and unfortunately you can’t hide it behind a curtain because you have to walk through it it to get to our only washroom—so guests see it.
We have done wonders for our basement, managing to make a lovely, liveable space for ourselves and Mr. S (one day I will share the before and after with you), but this one room is still on my cringe list. It’s also where we change Peanut and spend a lot of time with him (on the potty, getting dressed, etc.), so I want to get it fixed up, but in the grand scheme of things, if I’m spending money on my house, I tend to favour other areas. It’s organized and clean, but it’s a an eyesore.
But I’m working on it.
I’m a bit embarrassed to admit what it took to get this sink this clean, but boy-oh-boy am I ecstatic about the results. That’s one small step for me (who needs healthy fingernails anyway? who’s worried about inhaling toxic fumes?!), one giant leap for the presentableness of the laundry room.
