Laundry Room Projects/Process

Redoing sister's laundry room is 85% finished. I headed over there Thursday night after 12 hours of class and went straight into painting her walls. I wanted the walls to be dry by Friday, my day off, so I could get to work! Well, Friday I half baby-sat/half redecorated and couldn't get too far without her hubby home to hang some shelves for me... Then, I got sick all weekend and never completely finished. This is one exception to my "fast" makeover process! I promise though, I did A LOT in a LITTLE amount of time! 

Here are some things I added to "spruce" up the room a bit...

This cute wheat grass looking thing was $1.50 at GW, add a random silver vase holder and a swatch of burlap and you get:

She previously had these 8.5x10 printer paper labeling her piles of "dark" and "light" laundry, remember? I took dollar store frames, scrapbook paper, and foam stickers from hobby lobby to create these cute new labels to hang on the wall above the hampers.

I love this idea. I got the glass cork jar from GW for $1, sticker tattoos from a random scrapbook wedding package from Tuesday Morning, and added some fabric softener to complete this look!

This long vase came from Burlington (trust me, that place WILL surprise you!!! I have found amazing RANDOM stuff from there!) for $4... and all the pink/green fake flowers 50% off from Hobby Lobby.

This is probably my favorite project. I got this ceramic vase thing from GW for $3 and wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. I randomly decided to grab a styrofoam ball from Hobby Lobby and glue moss on it to create my own topiary look. I love it.

This is just a cute candle I got for $1 and added my own stickers on to say, "light my fire"...

My cute little projects for that night! There are more, but after I got sick, i quit taking pictures. I'll keep you posted on the "AFTER" pics!
