Yep…just another day in a perfect home. You know us decorators… we always have it together…
So this picture above? It’s placed here so feeds that display a first picture don’t scare readers away.
Maybe it’s in that creatively placed, repurposed for holding who knows what hat.
Just don’t tell my son, ok?
I just did some digging and I found a ‘reveal’ way back of this room as is. A reveal. HERE. Yellow pictures and all. Be careful… that link is very dusty! But at least the room was clean back then. Whatever happened?
I know exactly what happened. It just became a dumping ground. No other excuse required.
Anyway, this room? It has it all. It’s as dark as a cave, there’s barely any room to walk, plus it’s the only place left for any big sign boards. It’s even graced with exposed wires for that industrial effect.
I love adventurous trails, don’t you? Let’s trip a little more…
Deeeeeeeep taupe. So very… taupe.
The walls resemble being covered in a chocolate milkshake.
Who picked that colour?!
Oh… I did.
This here is my laundry drying rack. When you’ve owned a sign company for as long as I have, you use signs.
Further enhanced by a shock of colour in the background, so it captures well on screen. In case you wish to pin it. Pinterest is getting picky now about quality images, so pin away!
I had to gut the laundry room to make way for the freezer (see it to the right! it’s in!) that came from the workshop.
But what stepped up the pace was, a project is in the works, and I wanted it in the laundry room. That wasn’t done.
But the laundry room may be too dark to capture the project, so I’m also freshening up the walls in the photo studio too.
No mayhem here… none at all.
I’m actually kinda giddy! With the workshop somewhat productive with a painting table and everything, it’s really helped make DIY tasks much more of a joy.
It’s also a neat feeling to be reaching this area of the house. I’ve lived with the chocolate milkshake laundry room for 8 years.. it’s time to change it to vanilla, with a touch of.. hmm… I’ll let you know when I figure out what that other colour’s flavour is.
Truth be told, this room was littered with wallpaper and a horrible vinyl floor when I moved in. I put down the tile and did the walls right after the washer and dryer blew and I needed a new set.
Deadline driven. Again.
So… we’ll call this one Laundryroom 2014.
And I can’t wait to fill it up with junk!
GOOD junk that is. 🙂
Dream Box Building Challenge #23
I have no idea what today’s challenge is. Maybe avoid chocolate milkshaked laundry rooms?
Works for me!
