I love my laundry room. It is wide, functional, and if you saw my laundry room in my previous home you would understand why I love this one so much! It is on the first floor, but really that works well because I can only fold clothes if I am watching TV. A defect I know. My laundry room is also the "mud room". I always park in the garage (an agreement that hubby and I hashed out prior to moving in) and that is where we enter the house. I do not think that I have used the front door. Ever. I do not even know which key it is. I usually get it by the third try. Getting to the point. I needed storage for book bags and coats as I described here.
I found these hooks at Lowes for $2.12 a piece. This replaces the need of new dummy levers when we switch the brass out saving us twenty dollars. The hooks hold up to 35 lbs when installed on wood. I installed these myself which involved a power drill and a drill bit. I had to dig out the manual to figure out how to install the bit, but I did it and was drilling so well that I got little cocky on the last hole and broke the bit. Oops...
Here are the results:
I am so excited about the kids hanging up their own stuff!!! There is still a lot of work to do in here, but we are making progress.
