Each Thursday I will be sharing a new Thoughtful idea! If it’s organised, beautiful, delicious or smart, I want to know about it and share it with you all!!! I happened to come across a new blog this week, and boy did I find a treasure trove of wonderful ideas and spaces! So on this, the very first Thoughtful Thursday I am showcasing a space that is organised, beautiful AND smart! All three in one space. Not only that but it is a laundry. One of my most hated spaces!
So sit down and prepare to drool over this lustworthy laundry!
Tell us about yourself….
Family is so very important to me – I am a doting wife, daughter, sister and aunty to my very special family. My home is my special place, and I love cooking, cleaning, organising, sewing, scrapbooking, party planning, gift-making and more. My home is set on two acres, so I also enjoy getting outdoors and gardening.
Tell us about your blog…
I started blogging last year, and I have been addicted ever since. I guess over the years, I have enjoyed giving tips and ideas to friends and family on home organisation. While I am certainly no expert in the field, I do love sharing the little things that I do which make my life simpler, just from having a system that works for me. Cassadiva has been the platform for me to share lots of ideas for home organisation, crafting, parties, cooking and more!
After we ripped out the old laundry and took our measurements, I hopped onto the Bunnings website and used their online planning tool to create my dream laundry. It uses the measurements of the room to create a virutual room, and then you simply slot in the cupboards into the available space. It was so easy to use and because I am such a visual person, it was great to be able to see it all transforming before my eyes!
We bought the cupboards from Bunnings, and I ordered custom made benches through Ikea, which didn’t even take two weeks to have made. After many hours of hard work, our Laundry went from this
I finally had this amazing space to call my own! I now have 13 cupboards, 8 drawers and 2 shelves to play with! I love that half of them are still empty too!
So what makes this space smart?
A pull-out clothes line for wet weather
A wall-mounted Robinhood ironing centre (which is fully wired with light, timer and power):
And a pull-out hose from the tap for thoroughly washing things down.
Although I haven’t finished the painting, decorating and organising in here, it is such a great room, and I am really happy with the end product! I love that everything has a home, and that I have plenty of room to move around in here and do my jobs. And the pink accents make it such a happy place for me to work, craft and play!
You can wipe away your drool now! Yes I will be “pinning” these pictures to my “Laundry” board on Pinterest!
Is it crazy to be dreaming about laundries?
What would be in your dream laundry?
Oh and did I mention she is a teacher too?
What is it with organising teachers?
