After clearing out the room, and moving the laundry machines into the middle of the tight room, my sister and I set to work painting the walls a nice, peaceful sky blue. Two coats in, and the change was amazing already! The blue was so much fresher and more pleasing to the eye than the boring beige that used to be in there. Mom was worried at first about the colour choice, but did warm up to it as things started settling into place.
The next day, with the help (aka: he led the show) of my dad, we hung some IKEA shelving on the walls. We used the BESTA collection, complete with the coolest doors, a beautiful wavy white, that went well with the blue walls. All the cleaning supplies and vacuum parts and rags found new homes in the cupboards.
