My Laundry room

It will not win the prize for the most beautiful laundry room, but after a coat of paint (or 3 or 4), I like the way it brightened everything up.

The before photos…misc. Dec. and Jan. 2014-2015 072 misc. Dec. and Jan. 2014-2015 073 misc. Dec. and Jan. 2014-2015 075The room was so ugly, I didn’t bother editing the before pictures πŸ™‚ As you can see, I had painted the ceiling. I don’t remember how long ago I painted it, but I must have hated it so much, I quit for awhile πŸ™‚ I really don’t like painting. Like the way it looks after, but hate doing it.misc. Dec. and Jan. 2014-2015 078 misc. Dec. and Jan. 2014-2015 082 misc. Dec. and Jan. 2014-2015 083The boys really wanted to help, so I did let them help brush primer in the cracks in the panels. Kirsten took the pictures, and she really got the good angle on me 😦  I just love pictures of myself πŸ™‚ Oh well, documenting memories and all that good stuff.

Now for the after photos.misc. Dec. and Jan. 2014-2015 085 misc. Dec. and Jan. 2014-2015 086My Dad found this old wood, and he knows I love old things, and gave the pieces to me. Dear hubby added some hooks, and I love it!misc. Dec. and Jan. 2014-2015 087What’s a laundry without an old washboard? πŸ™‚misc. Dec. and Jan. 2014-2015 091My favorite piece in this room is this old cart I found above the spring house. It’s so great for storage! I still need some baskets to make it look prettier, but for now it’s doing it’s job.misc. Feb and March 001_edited-1See what I mean? It’s definitely storing things πŸ™‚ I can’t wait for yard sales and flea markets to look for some pretty storage & organization pieces. I thought about waiting to do this post till everything is nice and pretty, but decided that might be awhile. Yes, we still didn’t get new outlets and covers yet either, if you noticed that πŸ™‚ We move slow with home improvements around here πŸ™‚ I love my blue chair, and it will be getting a houseplant on it. All the kiddos do is throw more clothing on the poor thing πŸ™‚misc. Feb and March 002_edited-1I really don’t like the flooring in here, but for now, I am practicing contentment with it πŸ™‚ There are other things that are more important at this point. If I learned one thing from visiting Haiti, it’s that I have more than I need already. So I will choose to love my laundry as it is, imperfections and all. After all, this decades old flooring has had many precious feet walk across it πŸ™‚2015-04-02 19.28.47And a grainy, crooked phone picture I quick took, because I wanted to show you this shelf and sign. This sign is almost spot on here πŸ™‚

I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend! Take time to remember what Christ has done for us, for His death, and for His triumph over the grave.Β  Be blessed!

    I love what paint can do for ugly outdated paneling! We had just done our dining room, and it makes such a difference, it’s so much lighter in there! πŸ™‚

  3. Paint can cover a multitude of sins. πŸ™‚ Your laundry room looks lovely. For now, my laundry still resides in a hall closet and I am really trying to be content with it. So many different things have been posted lately about contentment and I decided it must be fore me. πŸ™‚ I’ll remain happy that I have a washer and dryer. πŸ™‚

  4. What? You weren’t cheered by dark wood paneling? Just kidding, of course! Yup, much improved. I like the stand and the blue chair, too. Enjoy your new space!
