We have a pretty small laundry room, which felt sooo cramped.
So a few months ago, I ripped out everything in this room and started all over. I did a post about it here. I doubt many people read it so here's a little update and a few more fun details that make folding socks a bit more enjoyable.
Is there such a thing as "re-posting"? I guess so
I wanted some sort of a vintage article of clothing for the art work in here and I found this
really beautiful mens sailor shirt...jacket? for about $20 dollars at a vintage clothing store. I had it framed in a black shadow box with white linen backing.
It is a beautiful dark blue wool and there wasn't as much as a splotch or tear on it anywhere. I folded the sleeve so that the details on the cuffs could be seen and I think my sailor boy might be reciting the pledge of allegiance!
The bright "cleaners" sign adds to the nautical colors and the sign says: Kelly Ave....too funny. There are only 4 shelves in this room, which I like, because it keeps me from buying too many cleaning products.
I love Mrs Meyers, in case you didn't notice.
Here is the utility sink from Kohler. It can be purchased with or without the birch stand. All of the details about the items in this room can be found in the first post, if you need more info.
The wood top pops off and it is really a nice deep size. This would be great in a potting shed or a kids bathroom too.
Just for fun and to store my scrubbies and sponges I used these large glass cylinders from the Sundance Catalog. The stainless shelves are from Danver and would look great in a kitchen or utility room. These are 36" in length and I believe they make them up to 60"
One more sign... that's what I charge to do the laundry
And finally, the ceiling fixture, from Barn Light Electric, with the light bulb cage ties all the colors together, while not seeming too cliche "nautical"
I love this little jacket.
My Grandfather was in the Navy, so I think of him when I look at this : )
Thanks for hanging in there last week and as always a huge thank you for your funny and happy comments.
More good stuff....on the way
