The Laundry Room

Decorating a house takes a LOT of time, money, and energy. I think I have finished 1 room... The laundry room. It has taken me about 3 months just to get the laundry room in a finished state, so who knows how long it will take to get the whole house in a finished state.... it will probably never happen :)

Anyways, for those of you who are interested, I thought I'd post a few pictures of my laundry room. I love it. I know you are probably thinking, 'why in the world would you spend time decorating your laundry room???' Well, I guess there are a couple of reasons 1. why not? 2. it was a small space so it seemed like something that wouldn't take forever to complete 3. I had a vision.

I painted stripes on the wall... inspired by my very creative friend, Christiane. The darker color was the color that was already on the walls, so I just measured and taped the stripes and painted the lighter color. My SIL Susie helped me do the actual painting, which was fun to do together and made it go by much more quickly! The photo on the wall is a picture I took in a laundromat in Jackson, GA. I spray painted a peice of fiberboard a metalic brown color and then modpodged the photo to it. I was very pleased with how it turned out!

The Laundry room sign is vinyl lettering. I ordered it from an etsy shop. I just applied it to the wall and it adds a pop of color and a bit of humor to keep me smiling while I am doing my laundry! ha!

The laundry room is pretty small so it was hard to get a picture far enough out of the whole thing. I also have a lime green rug on the floor to add a bit more color to the room. It was a fun room make over! Next up, the kids' bathroom!
