Laundry/Mudroom Makeover

About a year and a half ago, we built in a mudroom storage bench area. We use it daily and love having a place to put our shoes on and toss our bags as we walk in the door. I recently gave it a fresh coat of paint as it’s been showing some wear and […]

Laundry Room Art

We like to have a little fun with our decor and not take ourselves too seriously. So when I saw this fun picture on a Joss and Main add for hangers a few months ago, I knew I had to re-create it in our laundry area. You can’t really use the wall space above the […]
