A few weeks ago, I decided my laundry room need a lift, and installed a cute geometric brown and yellow roman shade to perk things up in there. I told Jeanne her laundry room makeover was next. My philosophy is if you are going to be spending a lot of time in a room, it needs to make you happy!
Jeanne’s laundry room is a little unique in that it has a toilet and a vanity in it. Its actually quite convenient, being located right off of her kitchen. The bad news is, everyone that comes over uses the laundry room rather than the powder room. And, if you are anything like us, keeping that laundry room looking good can sometimes be a challenge.
I gave Jeanne these roman shades because my mother had them in her old condo before they moved. A cute animal print, but it was about 8 years ago. Needless to say they were quite dusty. We also had to address an issue of privacy, as the window by the toilet looked out to her deck. Rather than having to lower a roman shade every time someone used the restroom, I decided a cafe curtain would be the perfect solution!
It was also time to get rid of the old dish towels currently being used on the vanity. If guests were using this, we had to spiff it up a bit. And the ironing board holder had to go. Jeanne said she ironed her clothes (if she ironed at all) in her bedroom. Then put it in your bedroom closet, I told her.
The whole project was quite inexpensive, but what an improvement.
Here’s the cost rundown:
Window treatment(including fabric) 3 yds @ 60/yd $180.00
Topiaries from Marshalls Home Goods $ 60.00
Towels and toilet paper basket from Walmart $ 25.00
Okay, as you can see, we spent most of the money for this project on the window treatments. Yes, I am a sucker for great fabrics. You could certainly find a less expensive fabric, but as this is the most popular fabric we sell on our Etsy Shop right now, we wanted to see how it turned out in a different color than the gray we typically sell. Well, let’s just say, we LOVE the blue!
Have a great week!
Hogs and kisses,
