Laundry Sign

I've been mentally planning on some changes to the laundry room for a while now.  That's how it works for me.  I think about changing things for months and months, but the rooms basically have to wait in line. I finished the playroom, then worked on the craft room.  The craft room is almost done and then I'll focus on Rex's superhero bedroom, and last but not least is the laundry room.  Who cares about a laundry room?  Well, anything that can make the laundry experience more enjoyable is a great idea to me.  Here's today's simple, fast, easy idea.

The other day I saw these signs at Hobby Lobby.  I accidentally deleted my before photo, but the sign was just black and it was 50% off, making it $5.  I wanted it to look rough and worn, so I spray painted it turquiose and then roughed it up with my Pampered Chef scraper.  (Sorry if you sell Pampered Chef stuff and you are gasping because I'm not using this tool for the correct purpose.)

Voila.  Now I have the first piece of my laundry room.  I want to paint the walls a really pale turquoise like the paint swatch  behind the sign in the picture below (which probably looks white in this photo, but it's actually pale turquoise.  Trust me.)  Right now the walls are a berry color (like they were when we moved in) and I really want to lighten it up.

Have you seem some of the amazing laundry rooms of blogland?  Here are a couple that make doing laundry look like a fantasy.

Show and Tell.  Gorgeous.

Those two ladies also have beautiful blogs.  Check 'em out.

Thanks for stopping by.  And, if you don't read on the weekends, be sure to check out Saturday's post so you can get your FREE canvas.  See you tomorrow!
