Chained To The Laundry Room

Okay, first of all, who out there does not love a good painted floor? I know I can't get enough of them. So naturally I loved this floor I saw on Birds of a Feather. The floor got even better when I read the pattern was picked as a tongue-in-cheek design to convey her feelings on constantly being in the laundry room. You know how I love humor in design. I highly suggest going over to check out this great before and after.

Have a great weekend! I hope it is not spent in the laundry room (unless it looks like this then that wouldn't be so bad).

WOW! I wish my laundry room looked like that. The floor is amazing and the green window dressing gives it a pop of color. Thanks for sharing!

What a great laundry room! I love seeing more and more pay attention to a space that used to get neglected. Every corner of your home deserves a wonderful touch and really, a place like a laundry room that can also feel like a cubical needs attention too. xo

Oh wow, I love this floor...what a fantastic job! I HATE laundry with a passion but this could make it a tad more palatable! (Phillip Jeffries has a similar pattern available on grasscloth that I love too.)

BTW, I've got a giveaway for Thom Felicia bedding going on through tomorrow. Would love for you to stop over.

Why not make your laundry room pretty - we all spend way too much time in there, right?

I love it, that's so funny, I've never thought to add a pattern with a back story. Love the pop of orange too.
