I like the boxed in component. would use this just inside the door of my new room. although my washer will not be a part of this, I love the idea of laundry baskets slid in, Ironing board on the wall and the drying rack above. Simple ideas and functional.
IKEA HEMNES shoe cabinet, small lamp (we have that!) and some b& photos to dress up our very small entryway AND make it more functional! — I love the beadboard and used to have it in my old house but not sure if it goes with the new house?
