Happy March! Last Thursday, I showed you the very un-staged pictures of the laundry room. It look me a bit longer than I expected– more paint coats than I thought and general ‘having to put child raising first’.. But I finished (for now) the laundry room! Let me show you the pictures.
This is the door from the garage to the laundry room. I painted the door years ago and drew the “Welcome Home” banner with a paint pen. It still makes me really happy to see it every time we pull into the garage.
I cleaned up the sink and counter top and painted the cabinet for the
first time since we moved in. The color is Sherwin Williams’ Relentless
Olive. I kept the old hardware just because of time but that could be a quick way to update it even more.
The yellow on the side of the dryer is contact paper from the Dollar
Spot at Target. It is the perfect pop of color and brightens the big
black wall caused by the stacked dryer. I laughed at myself as I took the
time to create a gallery wall out of magnets.. It does make it look
nicer and less cluttered though.
Yay! You can see the sink. That was probably over an hour of scrubbing using a combination of toxic chemicals, a chisel, steel wool, not so toxic chemicals and my very strong muscles.
Also, if you have youngish babies, you might recognize this drying rack. I wasn’t using it for bottles anymore and its SO COOL, so I made it my drying rack for paint supplies. I vowed to myself that I’ll clear it off when it gets full. We’ll see.
art project. The top piece is Nickerbean 2 and the bottom is Nickerbean
1. I drew a square and a grid and asked them to put one finger print in
each little square. Ha HA, yeah right mom…. They ended up so cute when
I just let go and let them do their thing.
organizing laundry. It’s helpful in a room that doesn’t have any hanging
space. I bought it here if you’re interested. **affiliate link
The cabinet was originally this “vintage” yellow color. Wheat? I thought it would be cool to paint the inside a bright color but I was worried about the finish getting scuffed and looking yuck, so I’d rather the original color.
from our old bathroom. I gave the outside a fresh coat of paint.
Cleared some clutter and called that side done.
little chalk board ornaments hanging around so I cut the string/hanger
off, wrote the girls’ names with white paint pen and hot glued the board
to some tulle. Tied the tulle to the basket and presto…this.
