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… The room was so ugly, I didn’t bother editing the before pictures 🙂 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 🙂 I really don’t like painting. Like the way it looks after, but hate doing it. The 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 🙂 Oh well, documenting memories and all that good stuff.
Now for the after photos. My 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!What’s a laundry without an old washboard? 🙂My 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.See what I mean? It’s definitely storing things 🙂 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 🙂 We move slow with home improvements around here 🙂 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 🙂I really don’t like the flooring in here, but for now, I am practicing contentment with it 🙂 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 🙂And 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 🙂
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. Be blessed!
