Welcome to my new fresh laundry room!
My newest favorite paint color is not for every room and this room was just finished about an hour ago in perfect time for this paint party! So far everyone loves it…even if the only other people that have seen it is kids and a bunch of work men! LOL My husband is home and loves it too!
I forgot to take a picture before the painters came…the painter guy looked at me funny after realizing I took a picture of him painting! LOL You really wouldn’t have wanted to see the mess and chaos in this little laundry room anyways! LOL
I was in a dilemma
of what color to paint…should I play it safe with Tabacco Road or Plantation Beige
or go the bright green I wanted. As you can see I went green and love it! Asparagus
green from Home Depot and I used Behr
flat enamel that I’ve used in the rest of my house. Also, a few months back my husband stacked up the washer and dryer to give me a little more room to work with in this tiny room. For how big the rest of our house is…we have a teeny tiny laundry room with a not so great layout.
I used The Nester’s Mistreatment
idea and made a curtain out of some fabric to cover up above the cupboard to use as storage area. Swung the rest of the fabric over the table I got at IKEA
. No I didn’t sew a thing and yes you can see some stray strings but, really who is looking that closely?
I filed up the white metal container (which my friend gave me from her left over yard sale items and I love her left over junk) with laundry soap so I don’t have to see my super sized ugly bucket of soap. I set my “This Laundry Room Helps Keep America Clean” vinyl lettering
frame up to cover up my cords to my lamp and hand radio’s hiding behind the metal container.
And then I hid two giant laundry buckets of dirty laundry under the table. I’m hoping to keep this laundry room floor clean of laundry stacking up so much that you can’t even walk in…we shall see if the troops cooperate! LOL
Also you can see I raised my table by putting it on bed risers to make it a better folding counter height. Now on to try to keep the clean laundry from getting dumped all over my room….I know fold it as it comes out…it just never happens…I’m always in a hurry to switch the washer to the dryer and start the washer again! I do have a family of 7 and that washer/dryer holds a lot of clothes in one load…the great thing about front loaders is you stuff them full and slam the door. I’m going to try to get my little helpers to put it away quickly by offering something as a bribe and also try to keep them from dumping all the clean laundry right back into the dirty hamper. Right now my big washing problem is all the dirty beach towels from the pool and swim practice everyday! After all this laundry room Make-over was for me as no one ever goes into this room but me…laundry is not my favorite thing to do and I’m hoping having a cheerful fun space will make it more inviting for me to keep up with all my laundry!
