I think this post is a real milestone for me...
I have never left a room the same way
for 12 years before redoing it, but
I did with this one!
Laundry Room and Entrance
My inspiration came from 2 thrift store purchases-
2 wire baskets and a black and white tablecloth.
I used the cloth for basket liners and had enough
left for a valance.
I used jars I had already and made chalkboard
labels and filled them with the necessities.
The laundry prints are free from
The one original decor item in the room
(besides wall color) that I kept,
was the branch mural I painted when I first moved
into this home.
I also painted the bench white,
which gives the room a really fresh feel!
My key wall with a great old window treasure
from Main Street Station.
It has a pen attached so you can leave notes
etc. for people to see as they grab their keys.
And my fave find (also from Main St. Station!)
a yellow metal basket for "out the door" items.
This room feels so great now that I may actually
enjoy doing laundry...no, that would be a real stretch!
But it did turn out really "happy" and for
such a reasonable cost, just a few thrift finds, and
some elbow grease. Plus I got
it really cleaned and organized at the same time
which feels wonderful!
