This weekend’s DIY feature

Have you met Beth over at Patina White yet?

She’s a real life junker. The real deal. She is the blonde version of me. IF I knew half as much as her that is.

She loves rust.

She makes cool metal stuff for her seasonal store. (not online)

She loves all the kinds of stuff that I love. LOVE.

I’ve been following Beth’s blog for some time now. Her organic rustic style totally has me riveted to every single creative post of hers. She’s a true junker and knows what to do with it. She makes me realize what I personally LOVE. How does she know better than I? I don’t get it.

Anyway, when she posted about her new laundry room makeover, I knew right then and there that I had to have her on board HERE. You’ll soon see why.

Oh my word… vintage and texture wherever you look. Every square inch of this room totally speaks to me.

Beth says,

“I added a burlap skirt to the wood counter to provide a rustic cover & create a storage nook. the ship-lap counter was stained ebony which made for a rich mocha hue on the former new pine. and i am so tickled to have the commercial sprayer faucet for stubborn stains + rinsing! now…do you remember the peek at the weathered bleach sign? well you can now see it in it’s full glory above my folding station! let me tell you…it is quite a luxury to have a spot to fold clothes! (other than the random tables and beds around our home!)”

Beth, I missed the sign. How could I miss the sign?!? I LOVE this thing.

This galvanized bin (with real rust attached! swoon!) holds the cleaning supplies. I love Beth’s quaint way of labeling with a stamp and simple card stock. A homespun element but in a pro way.

And this wire mesh basket wears multiple coats of sealer as it’s reserved for the clean items. Groan…  

Wimper… What do you think of this ‘radiator belt rack’? I love things that have a story attached to them.

I’m dyin’…  Beth’s laundry room post in it’s entirety is HERE.  Beth, I need to be your best friend because when I copy your laundry room one day, I want you to realize it’s a compliment, not a copyright infringement, k? xo

OK one more.  This drying rack is being put to excellent use as the perfect stage for other fun things. Beth just really knows what to do with her ‘stuff.’

I could just totally take Beth’s whole blog in html mode and cut and paste it and be happy and content. I’ll let you go wander over there yourself and snoop around.

Beth, thanks so much for allowing me to feature this very cool room! If this doesn’t start the inspiration passion, I don’t know what would.

  1. I love all the elements in the laundry room so much, it makes me a little sick to my stomach!! (but in a good way!) I love great inspiration! I’m keeping my eyes open for rusty, metal stuff to re-use. And what a great tip to put sealer on it so rusty crud doesn’t get on your stuff.

    I haven’t been able to link up to SNS in awhile due to life getting in the way. I’m so happy to be back!! But, I am always reading your wonderful blog Donna. 🙂

  2. Absolutly stunning! I’m in love…with everything in that room. Makes me want to go re-do my newly redone laundry room…seriously…like right now.

    Thanks for passing on this eye candy and hosting another SNS! Have a great weekend!

  3. I know. I so know what you mean. That room is CRAZY. I feel sick looking at it too because it really belongs HERE, not there. I’m so not kidding when I said copy. How can one improve on that?!? 🙂

    Soooo glad you’re enjoying it!

    FJ Donna

  4. i am here to inspire! 🙂

    really donna…thank you so much for sharing my little world…so happy to be a part of your SNS! you all have brought a HUGE smile to my face this evening….

    the “blonde” donna!

  5. OMGosh…Beth is one COOL gal…luv her style! I’m going over to check out her blog…I’m sure it’s AWESOME! Hop over and enter my CASH GIVEAWAY…I think you will like it!


  6. I wish I had half her talent and yours too. I can find the stuff I just have trouble displaying it. You both need to come over someday and help me. I’ll be waiting!

  7. What else can you say about that laundry room but WOW … I want to copy that room too! Good luck tomorrow Donna. I can’t wait for the contest to begin.

  8. Hey lady…I think I might do a tutorial on the lamp shade even if I do plan to sell them (I am still debating that), but I will throw an email your way if and when I do a tutorial for the lamp shade. 🙂 Glad you loved it…I adore your blog.



  9. I WANT that laundry room. I don’t have the space to have everything she has in her laundry room, but if I did, it would look exactly like that. Very nice!

  10. thanks for sharing beth’s laundry room (i’ll go check out her blog!). doing laundry would be FUN in that room… wouldn’t it?! i especially like the work of art hanging about the sink… and the ceiling. this whole room is COOL!

  11. Thanks for sharing such an awesome laundry room link. My basement laundry room needs LOTS of help, but alas, there are far too many other rooms in this ‘ol house that need finishing first!

    Not ready to link up yet. Working on the guest room today – can you tell??? (get off the computer!!!!) but will post the before and afters soon….

    Happy Saturday!


  12. Well, let me tell ya, I’ve met this super gal, Beth, and she is overflowing with talent. She lives only 3 hours away and has a permanent spot at the flea market in Detroit Lakes, MN. Her stuff is FABULOUS. Oh, and you can see all the rooms in her house on her blog. You will see not only is she SUPER talented, but she is a total sweetheart. Love her!
