Where I am the Queen of the Laundry

Kelly's Korner is touring bonus rooms or laundry rooms today. I don't have a bonus room, but I do think it's a bonus to have a laundry room. So here it is:


I have old aprons as my valance and I decoupaged the counter. I just used some wrapping paper and scrapbook paper, all from Hobby Lobby, and modge podged it.

It's hard to tell in the picture, but I painted my washer and dryer the same color as my cabinets. Sea foam breeze. I just used regular paint it stays on fine. You can buy appliance paint if you want to do it the right way.

The door to my garage is painted with chalkboard paint. It is super easy. You can get it at Home Depot and paint it on like normal paint. I had to come up with this little piece of artwork real quick before I took the picture:

It did say "laundry bites" on it for a couple of weeks. That's not the image I wanted to portray today. :)

My laundry room chandelier:

This is my washer and dryer the first time I painted them:


You've got to make laundry fun somehow!

You have a chandelier in your laundry room?! You are killing me! I want to live in your house....you wouldn't mind adopting a grown 32 year old woman with 3 kids would you? lol

I've been thinking about a little chandelier in the laundry room now I will try it!

Please come to my house! I'd love to hire you to decorate and make my house look half as fun as yours!!! Seriously, I love the laundry room. :) And I, like you, consider a laundry room to be a huge bonus. My next house WILL have one instead of just a laundry "nook."

Robin said...

Oh Dina...
I have been loving your pictures since I never got to see your new place. It's truly amazing in true Dina style :) I must admit though...I am having major jealousy issues. I thought Portugal would be a fun place to shop, but so far...it's been AWFUL...it's all modern and not my taste at all! Maybe you could get a group of girls to come over here and do an "extreme apartment decorating" mission trip! Sounds fun, right? Hope you and Marcus are doing good...we miss seeing everyone from church!
