I finally have a chance to show y'all my laundry room!! :) I posted a little sneek peek awhile back:


But I was searching for the perfect final touch, which I finally found a few weeks ago:


After painting it turquoise & hanging it up...


...my room was complete! :)

This post would be so much better if I knew how to use my camera correctly! Between lighting issues & differences in computer monitors, I don't suppose you can tell the exact shade of paint. It's called Flower Pot, and it is somewhere between the color of a terra cotta pot & a tangerine.

And now for the before & after pics...

The shelves needed a little reorganization, & I switched out the canvas bins with some wicker ones that I had elsewhere:



I traded mis-matched hampers (black & Spongebob) for a grown-up one!



I made a curtain for the naked window. And I kept the words on the wall by painting over the vinyl then peeling it off once the paint dried.


{The words are more tan than they look in this picture. I'm hoping the tan blends in with the room somewhat. I left the ceiling tan, & maybe it all looks OK with the hamper & baskets that are a darker tan?}

& I moved my apron to the pantry & made a missing sock sign! :)



I never thought to take a before picture of the other side of the room, but I took an after pic to show you where I put the calendar that I made & my re-covered ironing board {my old one was torn, so I took this opportunity to make it match my room! And I resisted the urge to paint the legs turquoise...}


I added a few decorative items that I already had. Below are my flowers from Kendra's wedding, a frame that I painted a long time ago (with a printable from Studio JRU, which was the inspiration for today's song), & a cute little box from one of my favorite students:


& one final picture, showing that the super cute chandelier actually works!


It probably seems silly that I would spend time {& money, though I only spent a little!} making my laundry room cute, but I've gotta tell ya it has made laundry more enjoyable! Have you done any decorating lately?
