Be Clean!

I am linking this older post to Kelly Korner and her show us where you live party
I am linking this post to The Inspired Rooms procrastination party. My laundry room is FINALLY done, after much procrastination!
I have been working on my laundry room for some time now with tons of inspiration from two of my favorite blogs-Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick, and Shannon at Bless our Nest.



When hubby said, and I quote "Who decorates their laundry room?" I said "Sarah and Shannon do, that's who!" These ladies don't know this, but I have a feeling if we lived close to each other we would be the best of friends! I promise I am not a stalker, I just love their style!


I found these plates at Marshall's today for 2 bucks each! I have had these hooks for a while, but they were brown, so I did a little spray painting!



Here is my framed silhouette I got from my favorite place VinylSihouettes and my spray painted basket that now holds my dryer sheets!Some more of my cheap decor.







My 6 year old got me this candle holder for mothers day. I love it, and think it goes perfectly!






My loose change holder and other odds and ends. Hubby says my mossy rocks look like pickles.:)







The finished product. I am happy with it. Hubby is going to be so excited when he comes home! Tee, he, he!

It looks WONDERFUL!! I love all of the green and black! You did such a great job. When I saw the first picture I though, oooooooh, what is she going to fill that wall up with? I LOVE it! Don't you just love walking in there now? I know I do. Thanks for your sweet comments too! :)

Jennifer DeDonato said...

The shelf looks wonderful!

The Brewers said...

So cute!!! I think your hubby will come to appreciate it! I just re-did ours and, while my hubs doesn't care so much about the beauty of the room, he did have to admit (much as it pained him to do so) that I did add storage and function to the space!!!

Shana said...
