New House: Laundry Room

Today I'm sharing a room around our house that's used quite often. Whether it's a daily or weekly chore, the laundry room needs to be organized and efficient. Recently I've been purging, sorting, and straightening up this space to work better for our needs. 


Our laundry room has three sets of double cabinets that are wonderful for storing cleaning supplies, mops and brooms, along with dirty clothes baskets. For a multifunction space they also store extra kitchen platters, tupperware, small appliances, and items that aren't used as much.


I found this vintage rolling laundry cart at a flea market. It's so convenient for folding laundry right out of the dryer.


This hanging outdoor lantern is from Lowe's. It adds a little vintage touch to this space along with the old galvanized locker baskets.


I organized everything in the cabinets above the washer and dryer using metal containers, baskets, and glass jars that I already had on hand.  


They store all of our small tools, cleaning rags, light bulbs, and clothes pins. I keep my dryer sheets in a wooden bowl. It's all about pretty storage and decluttering for me.


I've had this chalkboard since our first house. It finally found a permanent spot in the laundry room with a bright green boxwood wreath for some added color. 

This view from the laundry room is looking into the garage hallway and the half bathroom right off the kitchen.


The best part about reorganizing is having less stuff and more extra space. Now that the room is so simple and clean it certainly makes it much easier to do laundry!


Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Mantel

To celebrate the start of a new season that's upon us, I thought I would share the Spring Mantel at our store. It's nature inspired and all freshened up for Spring. 


The gray painted and distressed wooden pallet became the perfect backdrop for the mantel display. I used branches, logs, birds, green moss, and a succulent for a natural theme.


The folded book was so simple to make. All you need is a cover-less paperback book and five minutes to fold sections of pages... and that's it!


Sweet little birdies perched on branches.


I bought the wooden nest letters and simply painted them to coordinate with the backdrop. 


I love the aged look of this mantel in our store. It's salvaged from New Orleans and has tons of character, years of chippy paint and the curved detailed top is just gorgeous. 



Have a wonderful week!

Spring Dining Room


Last month I showed you a sneak peek of our spring dining room when I shared the Spring Vignettes from around our home. 


Since then I have added more color to the dining room tablescape using bright green napkins and moss, along with nature inspired birds nest, grapevine, antlers, and speckled eggs.


I also shared the sweet story and inspiration behind these birds nest paintings, found here.


This is a great view looking into the kitchen and the breakfast nook area.


I decided to use grapevine wreaths for a more affordable option instead of chargers or place mats. I love the way they add texture to the table setting. 



This bright spring wreath was created by adding floral stems to a large grapevine wreath. So simple for such a big impact!


I used white china to help contrast against the brown branches and nests. 


Here's one last look of the dining room.
