Classic Lake Cottage Laundry Room Mood Board – Mom’s Lake House

It’s hard to believe, but Mom’s Lake House will be ready for my parents to move in soon! This project has been over a year in the making, and my parents have worked very hard at finishing the place up all themselves over the past few months. I really admire their hard work and the way that they can make inexpensive finishes look fabulous with DIY custom touches. Today, there’s another room in the home that we’re planning to share with you soon! Let me show you our plans and a mood board for my parents’ classic lake cottage laundry room.Continue reading

Sew Easy Cafe Curtains

A Vintage Inspired Red & Aqua Laundry Room (+ Video Tour!)

I never thought I’d be this excited about a laundry room before, but I am seriously FREAKING OUT. I am so, so incredibly happy with how our laundry makeover turned out that I couldn’t wait to share it with you. It might sound silly, but I truly think that making this room a little prettier will give me the boost I need to keep up (better) with the piles and piles of little girl laundry that we have. This small laundry room makeover didn’t cost us much at all – we bought material for a giant pegboard and I purchased a couple pegboard accessories online. The rest of the transformation was due to a lot of elbow grease and a ton of DIY. I give you our vintage inspired red and aqua small laundry room:Continue reading
