Pretty Washing

Two posts in one week...I know, CRAZY!

Let me see a show of hands, who likes to do laundry??
No?? Well we know it has to be done, but wouldn't it be a little more fun in a pretty laundry room?
I had no plans of giving my little laundry room a makeover until I started moving furniture around in the living room. You know how that goes..you start by moving one piece then before you know it each room  has gotten a little change. Don't get me wrong, this room needed a little change, just wasn't at the top of the priority list. Well I am so glad I did it! Sure makes doing laundry a little more enjoyable. I love a good before and after..you?


Boring right??  The bulletin board now hangs behind the door. 


I added a shelf above the washer/dryer and added some fabric to cover the ugly plug and drain hose. 
The chalkboard was made using a frame I found, adding a piece of MDF board and painting with chalkboard paint. Everything else I already had on hand. 

This project only cost me $3 for the shelf brackets. YAY!!

Is your laundry room boring? Hope this inspires you to make your washing a little prettier!

Happy Washing my friends!
