Laundry Room?

Yes, this pink & white striped room is Bee's
laundry room! Unfortunately, these pictures
are quite lacking...there is no natural light to
be had and in the tiny space, a flash is waaaay
overkill. So, the pictures are mere representations,
but I think you can get the gist.

A couple of little creations to tie in the colors and
be "girlie" at the same time. A framed bit of "Dena"
fabric (LOVE HER!) and a "Julia" chintz dress.

A cheap Big Lots "memory" board was recovered
(re-made, actually!) with the same Dena fabric and
repurposed into a "Sunglasses board" (a pair for
every outfit! :0 ) And yes, the dogs do really have
pink leashes, etc. It's all about the pink with Bee!

The first sight you see when coming in from the garage can only dream!

A charming little tea themed, Mary Kay Crowley print
and a matching chintz saucer!

A few of Bee's Longaberger "Horizon of Hope" baskets,
they are not only small and cute...but pink too boot!

Cute little counter details to make this laundry room
a fun place to "fluff n' fold"!

The hamper wasn't quite right, so it had to be repainted
and new laundry bags sewn from appropriately pink
It all comes together to make Bee's laundry room an
unexpectedly fun and Downey fresh experience!!


  1. I wish I had thought of that with my hamper!! The bags broke and I threw it away...

  2. I love it!!! I don't have a laundry room because I live in an apartment, but if I did, I'd love it to be as beautiful as yours!


  3. That laundry sorter just makes me smile. It is adorable.

  4. What a great, creative place to do the laundry! I love that laundry cart. I think I'll make new bags for mine. I'm forever fighting the mesh bags that came with it. New bags in a fun print - with ties - will solve my problem and be much more fun! ~Adrienne~

  5. wow, that would even make me want to do laundry. haha.
    so so cute.

  6. That laundry room is just darling. I am a sucker for a pretty laundry room. Mine is very small and it's the first room when you walk in from the garage, but I still need to spruce it up a bit.

    I love the sunglasses board. My dh is always on me because I have so many pairs, but I never know where to store them.


  7. The laundry room is next on my list for painting/sprucing up. I am fortunate -- it is a nice size room, upstairs, right outside the bedrooms. It needs some pizazz though considering how much time I spend in there......

  8. Wow, what an eyeball full. It has so many things to see. I like the idea on the memory board and the sunglasses and leashes. It's an uplifting place in a endless chore room.


  9. Love, love, love the laundry room!! All the details are just adorable!!

  14. That is a laundry room that only dreams are made of, too bad I do my laundry in the garage, I only dream about cans of oil and car parts. Well thanks for sharing, maybe I can doll my "laundry area" up a little after the inspiration you provided.
