Crawling Along in the Laundry Room

Hello all! 

I am sorry for the lack of posts lately.  I have been busy working outdoors and it has taken me away from the laundry room a bit.   We have made some progress though. 

The ceiling is complete (well, minus some crown molding, but that is painted and ready to go up too).

My Habitat Restore pendant is painted and up as well and I love it!

It started out like this:

Also, my ironing board cabinet is painted.  I am just waiting on some fabric to cover the ironing board.

Remember, it looked this this before:

This cabinet is important because I am using it as a test to see if I like it enough to paint my kitchen cabinets the same color.  I also wanted to see how difficult the process is, although I know one cabinets is nothing compared to the thirty or so in my kitchen.  I do like it.  A lot.  Eeeek!

Finally, I think I found the fabric for the laundry room, since I sold the other fabric I talked about here

Here is a sneak peak:

From doing a little research online, I have found the blue is actually a little more blue, IRL. 
Here are some examples from Etsy:

Its crazy how different they look! 

Have a great day!  Next time, I'll be back to show you my garden!  I love decorating, but I am just as passionate about gardening and I can't wait to show you what I have!


  1. It's looking great Jodi. love how your light came out.

  2. Your laundry room is looking beautiful! I love the ceiling and the board and batten. And the light fixture--nice job!
    I'm glad you found new fabric and even though it does look different, at least it still has grey tones this time. :)
    Have a great day.

  3. Wow!! It looks great!!! I'm looking into doing my kitchen cabinets also. Have you heard of Annie Sloane's Chalk Paint? No sanding necessary for that. I'm going to try that, I think. :) LOVE your laundry room!! Looks tons better!!

  4. LOVE the ceiling! Your laundry room is beginning to look like something out of a magazine!! Love it!
