Laundry Room Reveal




Upadte July 30, 2013 - Full resolution mason jar photos are now available as free printables.


She's finally done!!  I am so excited. 

Here is what my laundry room looked like before:




Plain and boring.  Yes, I know I need a new ironing board cover.  :0)



My hubby took a thousand  couple of pictures of the jars for me to choose from.  
Then we ordered the 11 X14 prints.


We already had the frames, but they were black, so we spray painted them a high gloss white.


These jars were once stashed away in my grandmother's basement.  Now they bring just the right touch to my new laundry room!  I still have room for a few more decorative items on this shelf, but I am waiting until I find just the right thing...





Remember these chandeliers that I got at a garage sale in the fall?  One was $3 and the other $2.  
Well, the black one is no longer black.  






It also got painted the high gloss white, and I strung some beads to give it a little "bling".



Gotta have some flowers....


For those of you who are wondering where the laundry soap etc. is...


 Behind the door....



....and on the other corner of the shelf.  


Once again, there she is:



What do you think?  What do you have dreamed up for your laundry room?

The luandry room design was inspired by photographer Cindy Mandernach.  She does great work!

  2. That's a fancy laundry room. Love the pictures of the jars, and the fact that they are family heirlooms! My laundry room needs alot of work . There's one single lightbulb in the middle of the room!

    1. Yes, family heirlooms are very special. I always love it when I can incorporate them into a room. You'll have to let me know if you get inspired for your laundry room.... ;0) I'd love to see what you'd do with it!

    1. Thank you Joyce! It is motivating to keep the laundry moving through, so that it can look pretty without the folded piles laying on the dryer. ;)

  11. What a gorgeous laundry room! We recently did an overhaul on our laundry room too and I cannot believe the difference it makes. Well, it was pretty bad, serving as laundry, pantry and the place where all the homeless stuff went. Glad to have you visit and I'm now linky following you!

  24. Beautiful laundry room!!!! Love the wall color and love the chandelier in there too! Maybe if I had such a pretty laundry room, I would want to do laundry more... maybe... ;o)

  25. Love your new laundry room. You did a fantastic job, now doing laundry is fun!

  26. What a pretty color you chose for your laundry room! It now seems more peaceful and relaxing. I also like how you revamped your chandelier and added the strings of beads! Thank you for sharing this at my link party!

  27. Love the colour of your laundry room and love the mason jars both on the shelf and in the photo. I put my laundry detergent in a large tin that coordinated with my laundry room and I've seen it stored in large glass canisters. It is a bit of a pain to dump it out, but it is such a pretty finishing touch. You could even put the whole box in a wicker basket to prettify it up. I bet you enjoy doing laundry a whole lot more now that your room is so pretty.
