The modern apartment decorating for my daughter is going great. Trying to find interesting but budget friendly furnishings has been somewhat of a challenge . Of course being a vintage loving decorator I am all about being thrifty but some of the new stuff being sold just looks poorly constructed to me. Maybe thats one of the reasons I have always favored the look of antique furniture. Just something about the honest paint, patina and texture of old pieces that tell a great story. In the mean time, I thought I would show photo's of our finished farmhouse laundry room that turned out like this~
The room flanks my kitchen and has a couple of doorways leading into it. I thought it would be a great laundry room and it also holds my refrigerator. To hide the plumbing behind the washer and dryer, I used cotton cording and constructed a curtain out of three grain sacks and attached it to a shelf that I had made from some vintage corbels.
The easy part is that I can change out the grain sacks and vary the look behind the appliances. I used a pair of Pottery Barn roll up shades in a gauzy cotton fabric (found on Ebay) for two of the windows.
I clipped a bundle of fresh lavender to the cord and placed a vintage tin rose tray above on the window sash.
Easy, but still lets in tons of beautiful sunlight. On the antique blue green cabinet, I used an old fishing creel to hold more of that handy cotton cord.
I have a white washed wicker laundry basket on rollers to hold linens sitting in front of the windows.
Hope you enjoyed a look at my simple farmhouse laundry room:) Have a great weekend and in a few days I will be having my 5 year blog anniversary giveaway~Trust me you will love it:)) Also, tomorrow I am heading out for another junking trip and Tweeting with photo's all day if you want to come along just hit the Twitter icon in my left sidebar:)) Blessings to all of you:)
