Along the right wall, JD put in a utility sink, cabinets and a counter for folding. Past the counter is laundry basket room and a drying rack spot. We are also going to have a clothes rod so I can pre-hang things before they travel upstairs.
There's actually a window over the ugly hamper area. I also plan to enlarge and frame some laundry shots that we took in Liberia. Remembering the women scrubbing clothes on rocks along the creeks in Liberia will help me be thankful even when I'm buried in the laundry room!
