I'm on a painting kick and can't stop. The latest victim to succumb to my paint brush was the laundry room.There was nothing really wrong with the laundry room. It was a vibrant red with a punch of white. It made me happy whenever I walked through it from the garage to the kitchen. But then I fell in love with Cool Dip. The same color I painted our Utility Closet a few weeks back. And suddenly the red had to go!
Here is our laundry room before my little paint marathon this weekend. As you can see, it's narrow and small, but it serves it's purpose.
I attacked the red walls with Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer. That stuff is the bomb! It covered the red in ONE COAT. I do highly recommend opening a window when you paint with this stuff, as it will have your head spinning, and not in a good way.
Red walls be gone!
Now time for Cool Dip.
Don't you just love that name? What a fun job that must be, coming up with names for paint. How does one get a job like that?
I can't get over how light and bright the laundry room is. Of course, I did go from RED to light blue. But still, I was impressed! The yellow you see through the door, that's our powder room. I haven't decided if it's wall will be repainted yet.
The little shelving unit to the left of the washer and dry, I got from Pottery Barn many, many years ago. And some day a laundry sink will go beneath the shelves. The little clothes line of red doll clothes - my talented friend Berta made me this for my birthday one year. I envy her sewing skills!
Here's a close-up of the adorable clothes line...
Here's the view of the laundry room looking towards the door to the garage...
And no laundry room is complete without some laundry room art, right? I made the "wash" sign using some papers from my scrapbook stash.
And one last look of the laundry room from the kitchen...
Isn't it a bright beacon of happiness :)
