Dirty Laundry

Since coming back from our long July 4th weekend, all I am doing is catching up on laundry!
So, I thought I would stage my laundry room and show what I wish it would look like all the time. No before pictures--it would frighten you!

It's a long, narrow room with a door from the hallway on one end and a door to outside on the other end.
A couple of years ago I fell in love with and bought the red LG washer and dryer, hoping it would make doing laundry a little more fun. Not so much, but they are pretty!

I hung the Pierre Deux wallpaper, and installed the red glass cabinet knobs.
For fun, I put a French linen runner across the top of the washer and dryer--a recent purchase from Tracey at French Larkspur.

Looking from the outside in. Dexter is of course always ready to have his picture taken.

The shelf on the wall is antique and is great for hanging clothes right out of the dryer on the pegs.

There is also an antique clothes line for drying lingerie, etc. For now, I hung a few vintage linen towels for staging purposes.

I have some of my vintage red tole trays on display in the room too.

There's a tiny little monster
That is seldom seen
Dwelling within
Our laundry machines

It loves to eat socks
And make undies pink
It works with mildew--
Forgotten loads stink.
-Stacy Fileccia

Uh oh, the dryer is beeping.
Time to go fold a load.

Everything else is vintage.

Speaking of French Larkspur, Tracey is celebrating her one year blogging anniversary with an incredible giveaway! Check it out here!

I'm joining my friend Heidi at Heart and Home for Wednesday Gratitude, because even though I hate doing laundry, I'm grateful to have a washer and dryer. A red washer and dryer!
I'm also linking up to Three or More Tuesdays at The Gypsy's Corner.
On Friday, I'll join Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.
Thanks Ladies for hosting!
