my Christmas vacation #3

The white shelf in the laundry room was seeming a bit plain, so I decided to add some decorative paper(a tip from Clarice) to bring in some color...


I found some pink (Martha) wrapping paper on clearance. The shelf does not have a back, so I cut some mat board, glued the paper to it, and mounted it to the back...

An easy facelift!

    Your laundry room is so inviting! It is fun to see because it has some of the same elements as mine--

    Where did you find the rolling laundry basket? How handy.

  5. That is lovely. I almost wouldn't mind laundry duty with such a beautiful place to do it! Might even take my morning cup of coffee and just sit in there.

  7. I love your laundry room. Each time I see it, I get all green! I especially love the table that you covered for easy ironing. Cute paper on the shelf, too!

  12. I am coveting that laundry cart!!! I have wanted one for ages now. Do you love it, or is it just cute?

    Next house, the laundry room is going to be upstairs again and I hope I can make it look as good as yours!

    God bless.

  13. Hi Deb, thank you for leaving a comment at my blog yesterday! I responded to you there, but wanted to pay you a visit again here too!

    I see others are commenting on how lovely your laundry room is. And I think so too -- how could I not!

    A photo of your laundry room is what pulled me into your blog and convinced me to bookmark it! (The first "corner" I saw!)

    Mine is the complete opposite, a dark horror in a dingy hall to the outdoors. One day (sooner than later?!), as we work on our cottage, I dream it could look a little more inviting like yours!

  16. Oh Debbie it looks wonderful, although I love your laundry room. Isn't it amazing what a little piece of paper can do. I am looking for new paper for my cabinet. Love Clarice

  17. Such a pretty laundry room Deb. I have the same washer and dryer but ours sit on the floor separately - I like the idea of them stacking better (makes lots more room).

  18. Your shelf looks great! I've wanted to try that on the shelves in my studio.

  19. Of course I love it cause that's the paper I used on the back of my corner china cabinet! Only I didn't find it on clearance - lucky you!

  28. I think I might actually look forward to doing laundry if my room looked like yours! Very tasteful!

  29. Your laundry area looks charming. What a resourceful idea to cover the mat board! It sure makes laundry a pleasure when the room is so inviting. I love my laundry room also.

  30. Hi Deb,
    The shelf looks great...I've used paper to back shelves quite a bit...it's a neat, inexpensive redo!

  31. Wow, your laundry room is gorgeous. Mine look like a tornado ravaged it. How does one get organized and tidy and keep it that way???!!!??!? I can get organized, but never can maintain order.... I can blame my two young kids and messy husband, but honestly, other people do it! I am hopeless.... :)
