Laundry Room

I was reading a blog.  It's a crafting blog.  I think I'm going to unsubscribe.  I'm not crafty, I could be and I want to be, but I'm just not.  Maybe when I don't have a toddler I will be.  I don't know that seeing, day after day, how this woman makes all these amazing things from scratch and decorates so beautifully is so good for my self esteem!  Anyway today the post made me envious and then laugh!  It was about laundry rooms  It had these pictures from  here and here.

At first I saw those and wished my laundry room looked like that.  I thought "oh wouldn't I just love to do laundry in those rooms"  Then I laughed and thought "Yeah right!"  I don't think it would matter one bit what my laundry room looked like I am not a fan of laundry!  I highly doubt a chandelier in my laundry room would make me more prone to do the laundry, or enjoy pulling heavy jeans tangled with other clothes out of the washer and throwing them into the dryer.  I thought of what my laundry room looks like, what it's used for and decided that those laundry rooms are not functional for my life.
My laundry room is used for laundry, food storage, storage, and a dog room.  
This is what my laundry room looks like:
Isn't my food storage "beautiful"

My washer and dryer, despite my best efforts are continually piled with crap.

Storage shelves, dog crate, freezer, dog bed, random crap.

There's even this lovely damage courtesy of Rusty's separation anxiety he developed after Bosco died.

Also from the separation anxiety.  (now like it or not someday there will have to be a laundry room remodel!)

I was tempted to clean it up before I took the pictures because it's not always quite this messy.  To be quite honest though there are times it's worse.  You know what, that's ok.  It's a laundry room.  This is what a laundry room (to me) is supposed to look like.

haha! Are those laundry rooms for real? They look like what you would see in a model home! Mine is like yours. I think all normal people have a laundry room like yours. :)
