Laundry Room. Check.

My laundry room is nothing to write home about. We live  in a stock builder house in the burbs. It lacks character and most everything is beige. But it's my builder beige box. And at the end of a craptastic! day it was nice to walk in from the garage and be glad to be home.

A bonus was that this room was done on the cha-heap!!! My good karma manifested at Good Will last weekend. Apparently I had really good karma and didn't even know it. I shouldn't have cashed it all in and saved some up so I could have less complicated, less stressful days the next few weeks. Now I'm saving up all my good juju vibes for cup pulls and an office chair. The kitchen and playroom are next.

Oh my ugly, un-inspiring, dirty laundry storage room! And this was after I ripped down the upper cabinets. It's stupid to have cabinets you can't reach anyway.

Okay, so I am a lemming. Just like everyone else, I am in love with owls.

GoodWill was good to me. So good I didn't take pics of everything because I didn't want you'd be jealous and I'd have win back your friendship by helping you paint your laundry room.

It might look like a new beige, but it's not. It's more of a greenish gray. Not bad for a $5.00 can of oops paint. The cabinets were an experiment with Rustoleum's Cabinet Transformations kit which, unlike many a science fair projects, was extremely successful! No one and nothing blew up. And there is enough left over for me to do the kitchen.

The snail is my friend. I don't care what you think, he's staying. He remains un-named, so if you're actually reading the crap I type and would like to give him a name I'll cut and send one to you and we can be lame snail twinners.

Shh. The beadboard is wallpaper.

Oooh baby! How sad/uncomfortable/pathetic is it that I'm so excited by a laundry hamper? Bless you Ana White! My first woodworking project was the laundry hamper. I have a scar in my thumb and Husband's no longer virgin ears to prove it. Then there's the $19.99 Marshall's rug that started the whole thing.

Goodwill in all it's glory.

"Yes, Annelle. I pray!" Another snail if you can name that movie.

My very first vinyl sign. Awww.

Is the snail a reference to the pace in which the laundry process is completed?
