Laundry Room {before and after}

from drab yellow on move in day
to better with blue...

it still needed something...

Since the floors had to remain the same
I decided a fun wallpaper could add some happy distraction.
Among the choices...

We updated the cabinets from this....

to this pullout laundry hamper...

adding a favorite pop of color to the cabinets
makes it a place to whistle while you work,
climbing mountains of dirty clothes daily.

  3. hi Karen, thanks for stopping by. i love this print too! peacocks are one of my favorite things!

  4. Nancy if you don't mind me asking how did you do the pull out hampers?

  5. Hi Ashley, I found an inspiration picture on pinterest and had my carpenter recreate it. He removed the old cabinet doors and a shelf inside the cabinet. Then he made a pull out base with a cabinet door attached at the bottom (its like a big L from the side. He attached the base on pull out casters...just like a drawer but on a bigger scale. Hope that makes sense. If not send me an email and i'll take some photos for you.

  6. Oh perfect I am sure my husband will be able to figure it out from your description, we have very limited space in our laundry room and I would love to have pull out hampers to prevent all of the dirty clothes baskets off of the top of the cabinet.Thank you so much for the quick response, I absolutely love your work by the way!
