Laundry Room Before and After favorite room in the house.
This is the room I find true delight...the Laundry Room.
Okay, so I am trying to be optimistic.
I HATE doing the in order to make it more fun,
I decided to make my laundry room more desirable.
Here is the before picture:
Doesn't that room just scream...SPEND TIME IN ME?
No.  Simply.  No.

Here is the AFTER photo...
When we moved we needed a new drier...ours was gas and this was electrical hook up.
So...YIPPEE I got my matching drier to my front loading washer.
Now they are so happy together. 
I wanted some more light in the laundry room so I decided to hang my window mirror.
Years ago I made this beauty by just going to my local glass dealer
 and they cut me a mirror to go inside an old window.
This week I made a few pendant  burlap for my mantel and one for my laundry.
Adison painted my little sewing thread holders turquoise to go with the color accents.

Ahh...Mrs. Meyers.
Love the smell...and the color was perfect too!
Plus a little bucket for those buttons, toys and lost socks that show up in the laundry.

The room is quite small...but it washes and dries the clothes...
if only it could fold and put the laundry away for me.
I needed shelving for my other detergents. 
So, I grabbed my old wood crates...
asked my fantastic hubby to put them into some studs...and wallah! 
SHELVES!  Plus...they are kind of vintage and fun.

Now...I want to put a cute little chandelier up...and maybe some more turquoise?
Maybe paint a pattern on the wall?
We'll see.
Guess I should go fold that laundry that was hiding in the drier.
Anyone want to come and put it away for me?
