Need a little cuteness for your laundry room?

Having 5 children means I pretty much live in this room!  So why not make it pretty??  I would have taken a pic of the whole room but there are piles of laundry I am in the process of doing so you only get to see a small section of the room for now, he he :) 

This is the shelf that sits right above the washer...the good ol' fashion top loader....  I found these baskets at a yard sale for a buck a piece (woohoo)!  I keep the downey, shout, wrinkle release and dryer sheets in these.  Works great and they look cute too!  Then I found the large metal green container at Tai Pan (love that place) and the flowers are my FAVORITE EVER...peonies!!! They are left overs from my niece's wedding a few years ago!  Aren't they gorgeous?  They look real huh!
Ok and the chalkboard above is one I made out of an old cupboard door!  I had it hanging somewhere else in my house FOREVER and was getting tired of it there so I plopped it above the washer and LOVE it!  I also love having my laundry soap in my huge clear jar.  It just looks better than a big huge ugly box sitting up there!
Below are more pics of everything...............
What are your laundry rooms like?

I love it! My laundry room has pretty much ZERO character. It isn't very big and doesn't have a window, so I really don't spend time in there except to load and unload...

Don't you love it when you can redecorate with things you already have for like $0? I did that with my living room recently. It's a good feeling.

My laundry room is in combination with my main bathroom - old house! So finding ways to spruce it up is challenging. I've recently painted that section, upgraded to front loaders, and painted the cabinet above them. I removed the doors from the cabinets and was thinking about sewing a curtain to soften the look. So many projects! :)

Love your look - and your ideas. It was so nice meeting you and I've really been enjoying your blog.
