This weekend I did some major painting by myself. My entry walls are now a pretty aqua blue and my hallway walls are the same color as my living room (A Hint of Olive). This was the first time I’ve painted a fairly large area by myself. It was necessary so that Chris could watch Tony. It was actually a relaxing experience and I got to crank my tunes while the boys were out.
There were only two things that made me cranky. The first was our textured walls. I had to go over them multiple times to make sure that the paint got into the valleys. Luckily my arm has held up. The other irritation came about when I was cleaning up. We have a deep kitchen sink with a nozzle that extends and sprays. I’m thankful for that. However, every time I clean up paint it sprays all over the countertop. I think I’ve cleaned it up, but end up with dried paint everywhere (Chris just informed me that I got paint on the stove-oops). This weekend I found myself fantasizing about laundry room sinks. I want one. I need one. I have to have one. I’ve decided that when we look for a bigger home a laundry sink will be at the top of my list.
I want this one (even though it has more of a farm house look). You’ve gotta love that faucet.
This one looks like the sink we had in our laundry room when I was growing up. It’s utilitarian, but does the job and is really deep.
I like the idea of a double sink. Now that’s good livin’.
This laundry room looks so neat and clean (unlike mine which I’m too embarrassed to show). But most of all I like that sink with the countertops on either side. I don’t know where this pic came from since the blogger didn’t source it. I tried Tin Eye to do a reverse image search, but came up with nada.
Now that I think about it, I may want a sink in the garage instead (a garage will be on my wish list as well). That way I don’t run the risk of getting my laundry sprayed with paint. On that note, here’s a garage sink that might work (I love the idea of a fridge in the garage and that cabinetry is pretty cool)
What’s your take on having a sink in the laundry room or even the garage? If you already have one what do you use it for?
