Laundry Room Reveal!
I'm finally finished with the Laundry Room! I have seen so many fabulous laundry rooms lately that I thought it was time to get cracken! I had my artist friend come in and do some magic. I had this blank wall so I told her that I wanted the water hose to look like it was spraying out of control. I also knew I needed "my" bra floating and a couple other pieces of clothing floating around, so this is what we came up with!
The shelving is just unfinished wooden shelves from Hobby Lobby. I then painted them a fun pink. I found these glass jars and put my laundry detergent in them. The two white milk glass containers I found at the Goodwill and they hold dryer sheets and a bleach pen!
I'd like to introduce you to Stella and Clyde. Stella is my washer and Clyde is my dryer. Oldies but goodies! Doesn't everyone name their machines?
Up above the cabinets are some fun cake plates and boxes that look like presents. I just loved all the colors and thought they were too cute to store them in a drawer. I have used them at Claire's birthday with cupcakes on them. I found that pillar with the bird house and painted it green and added pink swirls. The bird house is from an artist in Illinois. And that's just an old window with some fun painted swirls. I love the colors!
This is my laundry folding and catchall area. I hung this JUNK cubby to hold my Swiffer wipes that I use all the time and some other things I might need as I fly out the door. Who doesn't need a spritz of perfume, sunglasses and gum? I have a flip flop bank to collect the loose change found in clothing and the milk glass bowl (found at the Goodwill) is used to collect random things my children have in their pockets. The fun lamp I found at a thrift store!
This is the opposite wall. Since my kids do artwork all the time I knew I needed a place that I could display their work. I took three bulletin boards and painted the trim aqua and then found letters to spell out ART and I painted them the same great pink color as the shelving!
My laundry is to the left as you enter from the garage, so it has a ton of pegs to hold jackets and backpacks.
Maybe I will find a bench to put under the pegs sometime, but for now my room is complete! I'd love to hear what you think of it! I love comments!
