Home improvement

This past weekend, the Stone family did a little home improvement. We had not done anything to our laundry room since we moved in. As you can see it was very pink and had a beautiful pig border. The way the shelves were put up didn't make for very efficient storage. We were very frugal with our new design. We found some mistinted paint at Lowe's for $5.00 a gallon. It turned out much brighter than we expected, but still all right for the laundry room. I got 6 rolls of shelf liner for $1/roll at Big Lots. I got some Command hooks for about $4. The big splurge was the shelves above the washing machine which were about $12 at Wal~mart. We're pretty happy with the results.

The pantry. We could still use a little more room there. Maybe I need to stop buying frosting.

Before and After

We have alot more space for storing stuff on the shelves now.
The poor little pigs are gone now.

I like the new color! And that Pasta Roni in the pink box on your pantry shelf is my FAVORITE!
