Sometimes, you just have to work with what you’ve got. And, I’ve got ferns. Lots and lots of ferns.
Removing the wallpaper in our laundry room is on my to-do list, but it’s not happening this year. Or next year. Or possibly until the twins go to college. . . But, for now, I spend a lot of my time in there and wanted to make it a little happier place to be.
Although I might not fall completely in love with our laundry room until I redecorate it, I did make some quick—and inexpensive—updates recently that made it a little cuter and more functional in the meantime. Because even if you can’t do a complete redesign, I believe a few small changes can at least give you a better attitude. . . So, here’s what did:
(My mom hand-lettered one of my favorite quotes for me.)
These Martha Stewart fabric bins from The Home Depot are great for catching clutter (and come in lots of colors).
Glass canisters and cute bottles are a fun storage option for bleach, fabric softener, etc.
Now, even my laundry room has a little “ambience.”
(The tray is the lid from a laundry hamper I found at a yard sale.)
