Welcome to "Hooked on Fridays". Do you love to hear the hum of the washing machine? To be honest, the wash is not my favorite things to do. The task is never ending at my house. It's seems as soon as the hampers are empty, more clothes needing to be washed magically appear.
This year my laundry room got a make over. I decided if I had to spend time doing the laundry, I wanted to be surrounded with things I love to look at. Do you love wallpaper? I do, so I covered the walls in a wonderful printed wallpaper.
Family photos are another thing I love to be surrounded with. A sweet bird that was given to me by a dear friend and a cloche I just recently completed are all perched upon cabinet.
I found a vintage photo of two women washing laundry. I placed it inside of the cloche.
I added some sweet silk flower petals adorned with buttons. Proverbs 31:13 is placed inside the cloche.
A wired ribbon, beaded garland and vintage keys were used to embellish the top of the cloche. I love tiny lamps that add a wonderful glow in the evening.... This cabinet was a clearance find at TJ Maxx. It did not originally look like this....
Below is what the original cabinet looked like. I had some paint left from my dining room and decided to use it on the cabinet. A little bit of glaze and it has a whole new look.
I've mentioned I love roosters. These are another one of my favorite items...
Another sweet little bird nestled in a nest...
I love wonderful beaded trims on lamp shades and draperies.
Vintage keys of any style are a favorite of mine. When I saw this key ring holder, I knew it was perfect for me...
I belive that He is watches over my family, and is there with me in my laundry room even as I am folding the laundry.
Life is a bit sweeter when you are surrounded with things that make you smile. If you have a task that is not a favorite, think of items that you can bring into your space that make your heart sing...She selects wool and flax
