After a week of feeling like I am walking backwards through molasses, no matter how hard I try to make headway, I finally have something to report: despite the dastardly plans of the mini destructo-bot that lives in my house, I can now walk unmolested through my laundry room. This is a huge achievement, which involved giving boxes and boxes of crap lovely, gently used bed and table linens to the Goodwill.

Scary basement laundry room before:

My lovely just-created ironing nook. I am hoping this will inspire me to actually, you know, iron. My father, who admits to pressing his shoelaces as a child, will be so proud.

    Way to go! We spent the weekend cleaning/organizing/donating stuff to Goodwill too.

    I’m envious of your ironing corner. Although I maybe would need an entire ironing room (with a tv) to be properly motivated to iron!

    Good for you! This looks great. I hate ironing with a fiery passion and avoid it at all costs. I’m too much of a perfectionist–things are never unwrinkled enough even after ironing!

    Nice! I’ve been trying to get our office put together and organized for a month now — no dice. Maybe if I post some pictures of the “before,” I’ll be shamed into finishing the job!

    It looks great! Way to go! And ironing shoelaces? That’s a sick obsession. LOL!

    Very nice – organizing always leaves me with a good feeling of accomplishment.

    Could I have the address to the Goodwill you donated to?

    So totally impressive!
    I agree with Stephanie–I need TV to iron. Maybe that’s why my ironing sits in a basket for upwards of a month, threatening to consume the corner of my bedroom where I stash it, before I finally haul it out and do it!

    Check you out, you’ve been busy. Nesting urge perhaps? 🙂
