Laundry Room Makeover

Ok the Spring Bug has hit me HARD, in the past week I have now painted 3 rooms...and I'm not done. We've lived in our house for 6 years and the rooms/areas I've painted had never been touched...why do you ask? Because I never thought to paint them or fix them up - a closet? a laundry room? Who does that? a bathroom (OK I get this one) EVERYONE in blog land...that's WHO!!! LOL.

So I got on the band wagon and found a great color that was on the "mixed wrong table" at Lowe's - $5.00 for the Gallon. It was the exact color I was looking for a goldish brown. I have no clue of the color, just that it's what I wanted and for $5.00 - SCORE!!!


I sure wish these baskets were a few inches taller so you couldn't see my supplies...Lowe's $12.50 ea.
These two jars with the Oil Rubbed Bronze lids I got at DI for $7.00 for both of them!  I have my Oxy Clean in the larger one and Clothespins in the smaller one.

o I am not sure about the lamp shade.  I want to paint the base of this lamp ORB (Oil Rubbed Bronze), but not sure about the burlap?  Thoughts anyone?  Is it too small?  Too ugly?  Or just right?

The black basket hanging there towards the right is where I store "Missing In Action Socks".
The black basket with fabric liner in the upper left corner (was Burgundy) I spray painted a high gloss black, it's lovely.  I also got this at DI for $4.00 plus $.99 for the spray paint. - Looks brand new, don't ya think?
I put it on the Burgundy so you could see it.  It's about 2 ft in length and about 1 ft in width.  I am storing our TP in it now. 

Yah I k now....looks like it's time to break out the Iron ( I hate to Iron).  It's been about 3 years since I took the bi-folding doors off.  They were such a pain.  I used a shower curtain rod (I know I use them everywhere) and two curtain panels.  The carpet I got at Fred Meyer a few years ago and I love that the paint matches.  There you go....Happy Day - Heather

I can't believe how organised you are. I'm bookmarking your blog so that I can use you as inspiration when I'm trying to sort out my new home next month xx
