My New Favorite Room
I was pretty excited about my (main floor!) laundry room when we moved in here. It is a huge step up from the last 3 or 4 laundry rooms we've had and is the first laundry room I have ever had that has a sink. Sinks in laundry rooms are so useful.
When we moved in, there was a fluorescent light in the laundry room that was not working properly. It flickered badly due to a faulty fixture. Doing the laundry was like being at a dance club with the strobe light going. I spent as little time in there as possible. The Badger had a lot of things to do around the house that were more critical than the laundry room light... I knew he'd get around to fixing it eventually.
Then one day the light fixture stopped working altogether. Suddenly this project jumped to the top of the Badger's to-do list. He went and got an inexpensive incandescent fixture and installed it in no time flat (love that Badger!)
It feels like a whole new room. I am so excited! Isn't it beautiful?
I am very sensitive to light. Fluorescent light really bugs me, even when it is not flickering. It just feels... wrong. Don't get me started on compact fluorescent bulbs. So I was totally thrilled to get that nasty fluorescent fixture out of there.
I feel very blessed to have such a pleasant place to do laundry.
