I must confess, I've had this laundry room done for about a week, but haven't gotten around to showing you the pictures.
Let's go back to a few weeks ago when the laundry room looked like this:
I was itching to paint and stencil and add a little modern flair to our home that is mostly traditional country. Sounds a little funny, doesn't it? Traditional- country. What is that, you ask? Well, it's a mish mash of rustic, cabin-y, and traditional lines and colors. I do like a lot of straight, clean lines, so you could say it's touch of contemporary, traditional, and country....now if that isn't a contradiction!
Anyway, I wanted this room to be a little different than the rest in our home. I really despise the size of this room as a laundry room. It's very difficult to move around in so I wanted to do something that made me like the room a little more....not necessarily "like" doing laundry. :)
So I painted the wall that you see from the kitchen. I've got 2 of the other walls that you can't really see stenciled, but I haven't painted it yet....I'm going to live with it for a bit and decide if I think it's worth the time to paint the rest. It's a very time consuming process and I'm afraid I will get tired of the pattern faster than I can paint the entire room.
So here is the after.
I made the sign this past weekend. I found the quote on a sign in Country Sampler magazine, but I didn't really like the style of the sign and it was too expensive for something I could easily recreate. I used my Silhouette to cut the words out in cardstock, then traced them onto the canvas and painted. I love the quote, it's so true to my life filled with boys!
