|This plan included new drapery rod, sheers, roman shade, rug, paint, storage baskets, laundry hamper, and light fixture|
|SO EMBARRASING!!! I CANT BELIVE I'M EVEN SHOWING YOU THIS!!!!|
|HOW DID I EVER LET IT GET LIKE THIS???|
|You can obviously see that all of the tupperware "rejects" were being used in the laundry room! |
I'm pretty sure that pink bin is from my college dorm!
|This is their "Guide To Procedures Modern" print in a 16 x 20 size. It also comes in other color options and as a wooden sign as well! This particular print is white with pewter text. I thought it was PERFECT for this window against the new paint color!!! |
To see more of their ADORABLE signs click here . I will share some of my favorites at the end. To see a closeup of the other 2 signs in this space, keep reading!
seagrass baskets-TJ MAXX
washboard-Patina Interiors Consignment Store
white pitcher-TJ MAXX
greenery-fresh cut from outside
bag-World Market (teacher gift years ago)
great for hiding Halloween candy!!
iron wall hook-Hobby Lobby (already there)
|I LOVE that this basket has a lid because I keep our hand held vacuum in there while it's charging! I just threaded the chord out of the back of the lid and draped the wires down behind the cabinet so you can't see them!!!!|
The vacuum was super ugly and took up so much awkward space (refer back to "Before" picture)
Now you don't even know it's there!
|I made the labels on these baskets out of chalkboard tags I found at Hobby Lobby for 50% off of $2.99! |
I used a chalk pen ($2.99) and this tracing sheet I found on Pinterest to write the letters...
|not perfect, but atleast I didn't have to bother my friend to do more signs for me!!! And yes we have enough "bug killers" to fill an entire basket. (i.e. salt shooter, electric tennis racket/fly swatter, and then some good ole' fashion plastic fly swatters)|
|I already had this "in between" rolling cart that I purchased from Walmart years ago, and since its white, I just kept it to hold little things that I didn't have room for in the baskets above. I already had this dark wicker basket (hand me down from my mother in law) so I decided to keep it to once again try and pull together the dark and light wood. I use it for dirty kitchen rags and labeled it with a chalkboard label as well. I love the chalkboard look with this antique iron I found at my favorite consignment store! (Patina Interiors)!!|
|are these not the coolest prints you've ever seen?!? They come in different colors, sizes, and in a wood option!|
I decided to display them using some extra plywood I found in the garage. I traced the outline of the prints (8x10) into the plywood and had my handy husband cut them out with a jigsaw. Then I painted the edges with some left over paint from the walls (Kendall Charcoal by BM but in Behr Ultra Satin) and glued the prints on with Mod Podge...
|drapery rod-walmart (already had)|
white drapes- old shower curtains from World Market
laundry print-Lettered & Lined
light seagrass basket-TJ MAXX
(*Sidenote-my aunt is giving me this "laundry comfort mat" from Ballard Designs for Christmas. She gave me the "kitchen conversions mat" last year for Christmas so I moved it into the laundry room to get an idea of what the new rug will look like)
This is what the new laundry mat will look like...
