I know, I know, you've probably never heard of it, and I know at first, it'll sound crazy. See the problem is, for the last year and a half, I've been having some problems with the laundry. Not only do we have a lot of it, as you can imagine 7 people do, but our laundry room is down stairs on one side of the house, and our bedrooms are upstairs on the other side. So laundry involves me, going up and down the stairs like a pack mule. Another issue is that in all honesty, the laundry wasn't making it upstairs, unless we were having company (about once a week). I'd fold the laundry on the couch, and everyone would come down and start shuffling through...DISASTER!
The other thing that wasn't workin' for us was our pantry, our pantry and our laundry room...same room! We don't know who designed our house, but come on, laundry room/pantry...geesh!
So, Scott and I have been discussing idea's, looking for storage solutions, talking about dumb butler or laundry shoot, etc. Then I came across the family closet idea! I made the suggestion to Scott, waiting for him to tell me I was nuts, but he liked the idea! Well, one day I decided I was going to get started on it myself! That morning, I dropped the kids off at school, and went to Walmart in search of storage bin options for my new family closet. I walked in and right there in the center aisle I see stackable bins, regularly $5 on clearance for $1!!! So, here is what my new Family closet looks like (mind you the floor still needs tile...and Scott, if you're reading this, the tile is in the garage, whenever you feel the motivation!) I love it!
