Laundry room the color of fabric softner!

So I wanted a different color in our laundry room.
Something CHEERFUL to help take away the "laundry" blues!

and THIS is what happened!!!

Got a little bit BRIGHTER then I had first wanted!
It matched my fabric softener just right....so it was a keeper!
And Jake was so sweet, "if you like it honey!" Seriously. So nice of him!
I love it, in all it's CRAZINESS & BOLDNESS! Took me a bit to get use to though!
And especially now with a landscape of white snow outside,
it's so inviting and warm!








i love tablecloths.

all sorts of lovely, bright, vintage tablecloths.

our shoe system for the kiddos.
our shoe system for the adultos.
that bin was from target.
the cool mint trashcan $1 from our neighbors garage sale.




plastic picture frames from the dollar store!
i didn't want glass ones hanging up that high.
i don't think they look too "cheap" when grouped together like this!
one of my favorite walls in the house!





if you HAVE to do something,
WHY NOT make it BEAUTIFUL & INVITING??




the floors use to be this color.
but since I was going with a beach colored theme,
I decided to just paint the floor a sand color,
(plus, the kids were in Vacation Bible School every night that week--SCORE)!!

A lovely print by my incredibly talented cousin Freiman Stoltzfus.
garden buckets.
garden hats.
garden gloves.
what a GREAT deal one year at a garage sale.
ALL these curtains for the SIX windows.....
PLUS, ones to go in the kitchen too!
THANKS for stopping by.....

i love it janelle!
love the picture wall! =) fun memories of a warm summer night!
& i also appreciate how organized you are w/out many closets...that is my constant struggle. i can get so frustrated in my old house. i need to learn from you.
the color is great too! there are so many windows & doors to break it up...so the brightness is just right in that room.

You had me at John Denver. This is one of my favorite songs -- and I never hear it anywhere. Thanks!

Love the laundry room.

I'll be back!

THANKS SO MUCH FRIENDS for taking the time to say a little something!

Vickie~xoxo. the "chandie" in the laundry room is from Habitat for Humanity! Can you even handle it?? I bought it many years ago when we were first married.....and then one year found another one just like it at a garage sale, so one is above our bed and one is above our washer!!
