Now a little detail into why I care about painting my laundry/mudd room. Well, I have a husband with a wonderful quality of having a great decorative eye. I am not being sarcastic. He is really good at decorating/color details, etc. But...this also means that I can't decorate anything in the house without him being part of it. I cannot hang a picture on the wall without him liking the picture, liking the frame, making sure it ties in with the other decorations, etc. Now luckily he has good taste and for the most part we agree on things anyway. But, sometimes I want to let loose and just go to town on a room and I can't. So I told my hubs that the laundry room is MY DOMAIN. That since it doesn't get seen by most people other than me, I can do whatever I want and he can't compain. And I had fun! And he likes it!!
So as you enter the room, there is a small window that I love! I loved making a cute little set of curtains, but still wanted a lot of light in the room, so I tied it up with ribbon and thinks it looks so cute that way. I accessorized with some old picture frames that were sitting in the bottom of a closet and put some scrapbook paper and stickers with them. I think they turned out cute!
I used a mossy/leafy green color of paint.
Here is one of the picture frames.
Close up of the curtains. Love the paisly pattern!
This bulletin board has been in there since almost the beinning, and then later I added the hooks for the backpacks. So that was there before, but looks better with a painted background!
I found these at Ben Franklin one day on clearance for $1 each. I thought they would be great for putting the kids papers from school in and the mail until I can sort through it!
This is the favorite wall! I have the oh-so-styling book wreath my little sister made for me. Then I have the rack I got at DI for $6 and a vase with some stuff we had around the house! And my old laundry room sign. A must in the laundry room right? ;)
