DrOp YoUR PaNTs!

Ha! Laundry is a every person bane! It multiples, like those crazy Tribbles on Star Trek!! This has become one of my favorite projects this far. It was a fairly easy project but it did break the $20 limit for the challenge.

  • I found the Black & White contact paper at Marshalls for $5.99. It became the basis of the color scheme. With my kitchen being red & yellow and the laundry being right off the dining, it complimented each other without being overwhelming.
  • I purchased the decal at Dalidecals.com for $10.00 (plus $6.50 for shipping). I added the smaller of the design to the dashboard sections of the rented washer and dryer, these can be removed when I move.
  • Several of the baskets were purchased at my local thrift shops and average in price from $1.99 to $4.99
  • One can of black matte spray paint $3.99 ~ this was a huge mess. I learned to wear latex gloves and purchase more than one can. A future project will be to respray the baskets for more uniform appearance.

I will let the collages below speak for themselves.

au revoir!

Before: Clutter and unorganized. Tools overflowing the boxes…total mess!

Clean and Uniform! Everything now has its place

May is the just about half over and I have been working on the laundry area for the 2012 ReDesign Challenge.  I have pinned a few inspiration pics but here are the ones I like the most. The laundry area is about the size of a good closet with a full washer, dryer and houses the water heater.  I also store holiday wreaths and cleaning supplies in the space. I want a cohesive look, clean and clutter free.
