For Christmas my husband created my design for a functional laundry room. It isn't beautiful (it still is a utility room) but finally I can keep up with the laundry. I really wanted a way to track those mismatched socks. A cork board from the thrift store and a couple of thumbtacks did the job well. Now the straggler sock can chill on the board until its partner is found.Boy do I wish I had one of those dream laundry rooms that function is equal to beauty!!
