...and my my, it was about time I got around to it. My poor laundry room - which is actually
the way everybody comes in to our home - was in sad need of a lil' TLC. Now, granted it wasn't quite as bad the first picture shows - I'd already removed the cabinet doors and there use to be a utility cabinet on the back wall - but that being said - it was not a very inviting entry.
I hope I've changed that! And nearly all of it was done with things special people have gifted to me. (except of course - that washer and dryer - which we broke down and purchased after ours kicked the bucket - but I LOOOOVE them.)
BEFORE... blah, blah, blah
Come on in - after all "Back Door Guests are Best".
A plain cabinet from Lowe's that was in my storage room - I painted it and added chalkboard paint to the doors - perfect place for all my lists!!!
My big pretty basket from my sweet mamaw, Ruby. It was handmade in the Rocky Mountains many, many years ago.
Of course, I had to add a whimsical rooster and you see my precious lil' man in the right of the picture.
My old light fixture - or at least I think it is.
An old window frame given to me by Geneva, my pretty lil' plates from my dear friend, Donna and one of my mamaw Cleo's, handmade T-towels with tatting.
I love my banner from Cherry over at Cherry's Jubilee...
And the beautiful painting of our barn and farm from sweet Becky - I'll treasure it forever.
You all remember that pretty hand thrown pitcher given to me by my hubby, Shaun - well,
...it sits atop this lil' cabinet that he gave me when we first married 13 years ago. I painted it probably 10 years ago from white to red and added a couple of barns.
That's about it - oh yeh, my curtains I got at the Peddler's Mall and jus' had to cut them down a few inches. And I almost forgot - a painting of the "Flower Garden" quilt pattern I got from my nice neighbor, Jim.
So needless to say - it's far from fancy - but it's the things I love from the people I love.
And, you are welcome anytime!
