Show Us Where You Live Friday (on Thursday) - Laundry room/bonus room

Kelly has started the blog carnival a bit early this week so here is this week's edition of Show Us Where You Live Friday, only on Thursday. This week is any combination of laundry room/bonus room/play room. I'll start with our laundry room. It's hard to get good pictures because it is small.

The view looking in (window treatment made with love by my mom)

My favorite thing about this room are my Whirlpool Duets. Seriously...best appliances I've ever owned. I was giddy the day the Sears man pulled up with these bad boys!


This is the view looking out of the laundry room which is the "mud room" (although it's not a room so I don't know why they call it that) and a closet to the right.

I guess our bonus room would be our basement. One of the reasons we bought this house was because it had a finished basement. There are several areas of the basement and I'll show you a few (the others are not finished).

Workout room


Part of Julianne's play area. This ball pit/slide/swing set we got her for Christmas - she loves it!This is the TV/movie area of our basement. I didn't think the 60 inch TV was necessary. Hubby did. Enough said.
This was my grandparents. It is an old stereo/record player and I love it. Not so much the look of it but just the memories it brings back of playing records and dancing around with my grandparents in their house.
My favorite piece of furniture. My IJoy chair. Hubby bought this for me when I was 6 months pregnant because I was having so many back problems. One of the best surprises ever from my hubby!

There you have it. Our laundry room and basement. See you all next week!

OMG I love the flooring in your laundry room and your workout area in your basement is awesome! I wish I had a basement. They just don't make them here in Arizona! Thanks for showing us around!

I like that your laundry room has a window! That in itself seems like it could do wonders for motivation!

I like your laundry room...so clean. One day the Sears man will pull up to my house too and I'll be giddy. Cool chair!

I really love it! Cannot wait to see it in real life sooooo soon!! You know what I love about you...well more than just this (of course), but you have good decorating sense....AND you are CLEAN. This is such a joy.

Every day off, I have the same routine and Chris stayed home with us on Wed and I told him, "Why don't you go to the gym in the morning, so that I can do my cleaning routine"....He responded, "SURE".

Great rooms!! See you in a month!

Great rooms. I love the curtains in the laundry room. I am jealous that your workout area looks like it actually gets used. Thanks for sharing.

I have appliance envy!

I have also always wanted a sink in my laundry room!

Love your washer and dryer.

Do you use the drawers underneath? I wanted them when we were doing our room but hubby was convinced I wouldnt use them.
