I finally got this little room finished. Life got in the way – you know how that goes.
This tiny room is hard to photo, but here’s the other side.
First I’ll show you the functional parts of it. This is an old wood baluster that I had in my basement collecting dust. I gave it a fresh paint job and am using it for a drying rack/hanger rack. My husband attached the chain by inserting eyebolts into the baluster. Then he hung it from the studs in the ceiling.
I painted this old wood set of hooks a darker gray. We use it for little puppy’s walking supplies. 2 sweaters, depending on her mood for the day, her leash, and water bottle. Its hung near the door to the garage.
I bought a new laundry hamper. It wouldn’t work for a large family, but it’s just me and my husband. I love how it hides our ‘dirty laundry’ from anyone coming through the garage to the kitchen.
I didn’t put much into decorating, since I had spent so much on the new wall cabinets, hamper and paint. But I did purchase some fabric and sewed this little skirt for the utility sink, and hung it with a spring curtain rod. I hide my cleaning bucket behind the skirt.
I had an old wood wash board that was in rough shape. I spray painted the zinc gold, but the wood green. I really wanted a pop of vibrant color, since the room is so bland.
I cut out the arrow from glitter scrapbook paper that I already had.
Again, I used what I already had – some old clothespins.
I just painted the tops with acrylic paint, and hung them on a piece of yarn that I thumb tacked to the wall. Easy, and free-to-me decor.
And that wraps it up. My husband keeps saying how clean it looks. It was clean before, just dark and not as functional. I’m sold on the paint color by Behr – Campfire Ash. I plan to use it in the hallway next.
