So the other day I officially declared
a couple of small goals for January:
1. Change the baskets
on top of my laundry room cabinets to something black.
2. Find a solution for Mr. C’s shoe mess
under the utility tub in the laundry room.
I figured I would either paint the baskets I had
and add new liners
or just buy new baskets.
Luckily, (or so I thought),
I was able to find baskets which I loved
in Marshall’s today
so I took the easy way out and bought them!
But when I got them home and put them on top,
I was not happy.
First of all, I should have gone a size smaller
because they were kind of squished up there.
Second of all, I was not exactly thrilled with how they looked.
I thought I wanted black up there
but I think the black draws too much attention
to an area that I just wanted to just blend in.
Now you walk in and look up right away
because of the sharp contrast between the black and the white cabinets.
First I thought the dust covered fake plant
was messing up the look.
So I threw a lantern up there.
That only made things worse…
So needless to say,
I took them down
and now plan on returning the baskets tomorrow.
But before I did,
I tried one of the baskets below the utility tub
to see how the shoes would look:
Well, it does neaten the area up a bit,
and I do like the basket
is my husband really going to neatly pile his shoes in this basket?
Yes, another solution is definitely needed there.
So I am back to square one,
but the worst part was that my mistakes caused me to face the facts
on something else in this room…
I hate the wall color.
The walls are Benjamin Moore, Providence Olive
which is a fine color but not the color I want in here.
I think I want to go really light or go more of a beachy tan color.
Am I insane or what?
So now I am obsessing over the color.
AND I have no idea what I am doing
on top of the cabinets
or below the sink.
Wow, that was a great update.
Aren’t you glad you stopped by to check out absolutely nothing?
How are your projects coming?
