Vintage Laundry Room Mini Makeover

I changed my laundry room wall color in November from yellow to Sherwin Williams Dover White.  It was a great opportunity to change up the decor.  It's still vintage but less kitschy and more farmhouse.

Here are the before and afters:

Here is the after.  I painted the red bowl shelf with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Old White".  I joined the washboards into a piece of wall art.  I also painted an old ironing board top with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Cream" and hung it on the door to my kitchen.

Do you have a home message board or command center?

  Since I love to up-cycle and re-purpose, I put my message board together with a cabinet door, a clipboard, and an enamelware tray, and trimmed it out with vintage wooden yardsticks!

French Country Up-cycle of a Garage Sale Find

Normally I am upcycling and repurposing my thrift shop finds but this time I am giving this little country style, garage sale, potpourri drawer a little French makeover.  The piece was actually red and navy blue when I purchased it.  Here I have already given it a base coat of American Accents Rustoleum paint in Nutmeg.

Up-cycled Thrift Shop Decor

My thrift shop up-cycle for today begins with this jug hanging plaque.  I think it is a reproduction of an apple cider jug.  It has a metal neck and the rest of the jug is covered in a basket type material.  The Harvest picture is a decal.  I paid $1.
