The Laundry Room

Thursday, March 10, 2011

Hi everyone!

I just got back from a very fun trip to Ruby Tequila's (mexican food....yum) with my two friends, Kaitlin and Jessica.  We have had a very busy week and it will only get busier when we head home to Colorado tomorrow! One of the reasons our week was so hectic is due to the fact that we finished our laundry room.

I am in LOVE with this room, even though it is only a 5'x5' box. As I've stated before, we decided to paint the stripes that I have been obsessed with for quite some time. Bryan and I also completely repainted all of the trim, doors, and cabinets to make it look and feel brand new. I added some pattern, baskets, and a couple of framed prints to top the whole thing off. We were on a very strict budget for this, and I am happy to say that I only spent about $40 for the whole thing! It's not much, but it makes me a heck of lot happier when I have to do laundry now!

Here is the "before":


And the "after":


Love those stripes!


I made this curtain to hide the ugly drying rack in about 10 minutes with iron-on hem (aka my best friend). I love the fabric, I got it for like $4 at JoAnn's.


These prints are from TJMaxx. $10. Boom.







I also recieved this nice suprise in the mail today...


It's the Garden Issue! And guess what's next in our plans....that's right, our garden! Thank you, BHG, for making this girl's day.

Yay, love it!! Happy Spring Break!

  5. Such a classy, fresh laundry room! I just have a laundry closet, so I can't do a whole lot with it, but yours is beautiful. If you have to wash clothes, this is a great place to do it. :)
