The roughest spot in our house is the attic space. Intended for storage, it wasn't exactly the perfect place for the washer/dryer hook-ups. Since there wasn't another spot for them, I've been doing laundry (tons of it!) up there. (Notice the insulation hanging down, the roof boards showing through and other creepy, crawly things hanging around.)
Yesterday, I'd had enough of the situation. Pulled out some of my favorite fabric, a can of grey/green paint and dug up some accessories from around the house. Not bad for a few hours of work and no moola.
