Sweet Tea and Spray Paint

My journey with God and my family to make our house a home in Christ (without spending much money)!

Wanna see it?? The new laundry room that is. September 25, 2009

My laundry room was the most hideous room in the house in need of a big facelift.  The walls were nondescript, the cabinets blah, the room a catch all for clutter.  No wonder I didn’t want to do any laundry.  I’ll show you…100_1107100_1106100_1105100_1104

I told you!  Yuck.  Who would want to go in there??  Well, my family was starting to run out of clothes so I took drastic measures.  Normally I would wait on the hub to help me but the “new me” decided I would do it.  So I did!  I painted the walls a beautiful green called “Jalepeno Jelly” by Valspar from Lowes.  I painted the cabinets black and sprayed the hardward a pewter color.  I cleaned out the clutter and got a small, rolling (and covered–love it) laundry sorter from Wal Mart.  This eliminated the giant table with 3 giant baskets.  I got a .75 vinyl tablecloth that is supposed to look like bamboo (going green you know) and hot glued a rod pocket at the top.  It is mounted on a tension rod and hides the hot water heater, mop & bucket, and iron (out of sight out of mind huh?).  I made a vinyl hanging for the wall and dressed up the room with some great Goodwill finds!  It is a much happier place now!  Don’t you think??


This project has led to many more around the house since then!!  I can’t wait to share them too!!

I’ll be linking this to Kimba’s DIY at A Soft Place to Land.
