Laundry Room Revamped

In my quest to clean out the garage and all of the things I had stored in the guest bedroom, I came across a ton of pics and quilt blocks that I have had for years, so I decided to add to the few that I had in the laundry room and cover the walls.

As you enter from the hall, this is what you see.  Just a hallways laundry that goes to the garage door.  There are a lot of pics (sorry) so let's start on the left and go around the room.



A quilt block I made years ago and an Egg tray.


The fridge has my bragging gallery of grands when they were small.


My old Radio Flyer wood wagon sits on top of the fridge and holds a bunch of my white pitchers.


The top of  the cabinet is mainly just storage for some things not currently in use. On the wall next to it is another quilt block, this one my mom made and a welcome crewel embroidery that I did years ago.


The side panel of  an old Ivory Soap box, plus don't you just love my W A S H door knobs.


This side has a ton of stuff, I just filled the wall with everything.  The white cabinet holds my craft supplies and the wine rack has a few bottles of wine and stores some placemats rolled up.


Everything on this wall is either things collected a gazillion years ago or things I made, paintings, quilt blocks and stitchery.


























There's definitely a lot to look at as you do the laundry, but it's all things that mean something to me, so it's a lot of fun.

  4. I love the gallery wall you did in your laundry room, Marty! My hubby just painted our laundry room and I have been putting my decor back in place and pictures up as I find a minute here and there.

  5. Loved looking at all of your things on the wall -- I always like when people decorate with meaningful things. Plus, glad to see that someone besides me is holding on to an older washer & drier -- I see no reason to upgrade as long as what I have still works!!!! Sally

  8. Nice to be surrounded by meaningful treasures while you do a task that you may not love to do. At least I know I don't.

  15. you always have such unique items and the flair to show them. Love all your posts as I do read them. I have been so busy trying to clean this big yard. I get very tired. It was truly a big mess with at least 3 inches of pine needles and leaves. Lost so many plants from the weird weather we have been having. I haven't even touched the side yard except it being mowed. bushes need clipping. A gardners work is never done.

  19. It looks so welcoming! You've given me tons of inspiration for the Laundry area in our new house which is also a walk through. I wish mine was as empty of washing as yours is, please tell me you moved it for the photo, lol =) Sally xx

  26. What fun, Marty. I see that we did a lot of similar projects over the years. I have mine packed away thinking one of my kids will think they are real treasures someday down the road. You did a lot of great pieces and it is fun that you have them out where you can see them- xo Diana

  30. A laundry room this nice would make me want to do laundry more than I do. That's my story anyway.
    Ours is small and only tolerable. Maybe I would like it better if I tried to make it pretty.
