Laundry Anyone?

Hello ladies. Welcome to the mansion. It is Monday and time for Metamorphasis...check out Metamorphasis Monday at Between Naps On The Porch.

Today I would like to share my laundry room makeover with you all. Here is a pic of the before laundry room when we moved into the new mansion... is Aunt Kathleen painting like a crazy woman.... We painted the room all the way up to the top...10 feet. The color is called Teague Dune. We decided to paint the trim bright white.

Here is the finished laundry room...
I found some great "dune" colored fabric and made a little curtain and a counter skirt. The skirt is box pleated and attached with velcro. I made several hidden openings in the skirt so that I can get to my goodies underneath. I found a bunch of baskets really cheap at Wally World. They are hiding candles, light bulbs, pet supplies, lunch kits, and much more junk. I made some tags out of scrap paper and ribbon to affix to the baskets.

I found a cute mirror laundry sign at the thrift shop for .50. Yippee. And there you have it....the laundry is done. I would like to find a great light to hang from the ceiling....maybe the next trip to the thrift store will make that happen.
Thanks for stopping by the mansion. Have a great week.
