AHHHH, THE LAUNDRY ROOM.
You know how it goes…you go looking for a screw driver and end up painting a room?
Well, in this case, I fixed the broken dryer belt, Thank you very much!, and ended up doing a complete makeover of the room.. Lying under the dryer, I became disgusted with what had become of an already pretty pathetic room. The Laundry Room truly was just a dumping ground for dirty clothes. But then the March Issue of Country Living came along with the cover story about Stray Dog Designs founders Jane and Billy Pritchard and I was mesmerized by their hallway with the horizontal stripes.

I knew that I could not pull off our 10 x 30 upstairs hall but I could do our teeny laundry room. And so I did!!!
The colors I used are: DOORS: is Benjamin Moore Fairy Tale Blue 2055-50
STRIPES: are Benjamin Moore Ocean Air 2123-50
and Mountain Peak White OC 121,
(also the color of the Kitchen Cabinets)
Prior to my laundry room makeover, it was the room I could not get out of fast enough.
PRO: It has a window, and a door for that matter that goes to the back porch.
I has high ceilings and built in shelves.
CONS: It is a passage way to the pantry,
so it can feel a bit like a clog in a drain when the laundry piles up.
PROS and CONS: There is a door between the Laundry room and the Kitchen,
so It is visible from the Kitchen, and also the Dining Room
therefore….all the mess (or beauty) is in full view…
The end result….you tell me!!! I want to move into my laundry room!!!
I do not have a before picture handy but if you must have a frame of reference
go into your kitchen, and open your trash can and look in.

I will nor go so far as to say that I LOVE Doing the laundry…but I will say, that it is way more pleasant and I am always happy when I see my Stripes!!!
Ha! These are not my initials, I got this (and about 10 more for gifts) monogramed tote at the llbean outlet! $7.99!!! Can;t beat that! Love the long straps!
