31 says Welcome Home!
I think we all want to walk into our home and feel that sense of welcoming…the kind where all the weight is lifted from our day and relaxation is near. I sure do! Truth be told, my welcoming entrance has been a cluttered confusing mess.
You see, we don’t enter our house through the front door. The one that has the pretty wreath and a calming foyer.
We enter from our garage. As a matter of fact, all of our family and most of our friends enter that way too. That is unless I’ve closed the garage door so they can’t walk through the mess. 🙁
Because it is my laundry room, mud room, drop all your stuff room!
I needed this to be a place where I could walk in and not immediately feel overwhelmed.
So I emptied this room of anything that didn’t need to be here.
Removed cabinet doors to make a shelf for the kids extra school stuff that ended up on top of the dryer. I also took out the bench because it was only used as a place to lay more things.
Then I got busy touching up scuff marks with paint. Glad I still had this on hand!
I started this task yesterday at 2:00! So as you can see, A LOT can happen when we put our minds to it!
I have had this vinyl wall art for years…just never used it.
Now, this room feels good…great actually! Even these quotes from my kids are truth telling…
Son: “Awesome, now I have somewhere to put my drum sticks!”
Daughter: “This is so clean, I’m liking it!”
Husband: Didn’t say anything, he just started throwing stuff away that I had taken out of the shelves!
I hope this inspires you and if it does please share in the comments section so everyone can be encouraged as we take this journey together!
