Pintrest....ahhhh, how I love thee.

If you know me well,you know I love new things. My newest and most recent obsession is Pintrest! It is the most amazing,wonderful,super,creative concept I've discovered. I am now an obsessed pinner too. Yes, as if I don't have enough time to do everything else, I sit up late at night (and I mean laaate cause I don't need much sleep) ;) Why do I bring up pintrest, besides the fact it is the coolest? Because I just finished re-doing my laundry room after my pinning spree! So, let's begin.

Our laundry room was funky.the gold,shiny non covered bulb light in there was the first eyesore.It's been there since we moved in. I always thought" oh, I'll get to it when I do the laundry room the way I want it.....so, 6 years later..bam! It was first to go. There was one big shelf smack dab in the center of the wall and left so much room to do nothing. I have so many colors I like I began to gravitate to purple.Long after searching for the right purple, it never happened. They were too  light, too bright, too dark,too bold....(and I am a color lover too,but it just wasn't happening) My next thought was maybe green.I like lime green and my sisters is awesome...but no, a green will most likely go in the house elsewhere this year.Then I found it! here it is....finally,after 6years! LOL Aqua Bay found at Lowe's( another place I am so very fond of ;)

Here is how it went....

Texture Drying( the gray spots are still damp)

Cutting in all over 
done!



ugly gold without cover for 6 yrs. lol.

new bronze, with cover LOL!







same space all nice
before with no shelves

The pics above are the same spot. Can you believe it? I hate clutter,but all that stuff had no place to go. Paint does wonders, don't ya agree? See the stuff hanging on the door? I'll get to that later....but it bugs me. 
still need to put quarter round and peel that sticky off the left corner. 
 I went ahead and took all my totes and moved them to put this clear shoe organizer to hold my cupcake sprinkles and toppers. I love it! Genius I thought since we like to bake up in here! And of course, I themed each row according to how the holidays fall. I thought it would be wonderful and it is. So, with a quick glance, I know what sprinkles I need to get. A girl has to be prepared! ;)
 
 Here's a close up of my Easter row, which could also be baby's , mother's day and so on....
 and here is the final look......I still need a little rug, a trash can in the middle of washer/dryer, a switch plate cover to come in (minor things) but I love it. The peacock feathers are another pintrest idea. I wanted something and to keep it simple so who doesn't love peacocks! (of course I like change so in a year IF I tire of them, I can peel them off and replace with another design...right?
Bulbs in bowl ;)

cute sign I found at Hobby Lobby. Just add ribbon and bling!


 dryer sheets in glass jar ( I love to see things)
