Primmed up the laundry room

Ok, this has been one of my inspirations for my new look in my laundry room. I love the washboards and old laundry hanging up.
This is a few of my new enamelware that I placed on the kitchen counter.

I switched out my bright bowls for some old crates, jars, stitchery, and of course the enamelware! Because of my new purchases this weekend, I added a few more pans up on the wall. I still enjoy my whisk broom valance.


The refrigerator containers all have lids on the top shelf, goodies from this weekend!~Some of my labels and wire racks I've bought at tag sales~



I'd love to try a paint technique on the cabinets to make them look old and all chipped up . I did add a brown glaze around the edges awhile back.




My washer and dryer are white and the wall paper is white, but the bottom wall paper looks like an old picket fence. I've picked up several old washboards lately and I have an old sleeve ironing board to the right hanging on the wall. Well I've been working on a small tag sale for myself this week and of course it is 99 degrees!! I usually don't wait this late to have mine, but we worked on my moms for a couple of weeks. I'm pretty much set up in the garage. I need to go through the pool/play house in the morning to see what I've stashed in there over the winter! Have a great Wednesday!

Your laundry room is very pretty. You don't see too many of them all decorated up like yours. The broom valance is my favorite. What a neat idea. Thanks for sharing.
Have a great day.

I love your laundry room. I've been reading your blog for a few months and have never commented, tonight I just read through it all. I have a few pieces of enamelware and keep looking for more.

I enjoy your blog and hope someday to turn my blog more prim.
