I have lived in my house for 12 years, and for 12 years, the state of my laundry room has made me crazy!! I had shelves built and a sink installed, but never got around to painting it. And then Pinterest and spray paint empowered me!!! It still isn't finished, but the washer/dryer area is painted in bright, fun colors. Which led me to tackle another project that had been waiting -- a little bit of home dec to tie the room together!
As soon as I saw the Maya Road Canvas Laundry Day Set, the Vintage Wooden Spools, and the Sew Cute Chipboard, I knew I wanted to make a banner!
I alternated Laundry Day shapes with Canvas Flag Banner pieces and wooden spools strung on narrow ribbon. The canvas pieces were attached mini wood clothespins.
I had a ball decorating each canvas shape with wash day words and images. Stymied as to how to make a laundry basket -- I settled on the birdcage from the Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers set -- PERFECT!!! My most favorite ever Pink Paislee chippie letters and more Maya Road embellies -- Mini Ruler, buttons, Laundry Day Mini Chipboard, and Heart and Hand Chipboard!
I raided my stash for safety pins, charms, and the awesome overall fasteners! I have had those for years and years, saving them for the perfect project!
My laundry room is now a pleasure to work in -- the valance is a tension rod with Dollar Tree napkins draped on it -- and I am on to the next project!!
Thanks for Looking!
