Blessings in the Laundry

Hello Friends!
I do consider a laundry room a huge blessing.
Can you imagine washing clothes by hand? Whew!
Thank you for nice W/D's and yummy smeling soaps.
Join me for a tour!
All of the photos enlarge when clicked.
A *Count Your Blessings* sign reminds us all.
It's from Kirklands. I added the ribbon and hanger.
On the shelf I added decorative baskets for storage.
One holds Tide Free & Gentle and Downey Lavender Serenity.
Another stores the iron. My least favorite chore. Bleck...:)
At least the topper from Michaels is pretty to look at.
The Whirlpool front loaders. Love em'!
The powder room has another topper above.
The door out to the garage and a scroll mirror.
~*~
I'll be back this evening with another fun post.
This will be a first for me posting twice in one day.
Stay tuned and thanks for visiting.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I have the same Count Your Blessings sign. I think I'm going to borrow your idea and add the extra ribbon to it. Your laundry room looks great!

Anyway, you always decorate SO beautifully. You basket collection here is beautiful. I love each one. That was a brilliant idea to use them all together instead of 3 matching ones. LOVE that.

Denise said...

I love those baskets. the laundry room is one room in this house I haven't even painted yet.... you've inspired me to perhaps give it a lovely little makeover in the new year ;-) I'll pop back later to see if/why you posted twice. Have a great day Melissa.
Hugs

Melissa, of course even your laundry room is beautiful.:) Love that sign. Thanks for the reminder...yes I am grateful for a washer and dryer! Not my favorite chore, but could be worse for sure.

Your laundry room is adorable! If you have to spend time in there doing a chore, you might as well enjoy looking around!!

Tammy said...

Your laundry room is so pretty. Neat as a pin! I have the same wall hanging as your black one.

Shelia said...

Hi Melissa! Yes, we are blessed to have a laundry room. Especially one as pretty as yours and look at those high end machines! I could be jealous a little! :) Love your neatness in the baskets and those scrolls! Everything you do is fantastic. I'm a big fan of yours, can you tell?
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Another pretty laundry room. I love your washer and dryer. I am in laundry room envy. I have got to do some major work in mine soon!

April said...

Oh, my word, Melissa...what I'd give to have a laundry room as roomy and as organized as yours!

Lisa said...

I have often thought about our poor grandmothers and their lack of conveniences that we take for granted! I can't even imagine!
PS I love your pretty baskets...especially the striped one. Tres chic!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Melissa,

Your laundry is lovely and yes, we can count our blessings to have a
modern washing machine.
Boiling the water in a copper and having it an all day job, back in our Grandmothers day, really does make me grateful.
Also I enjoyed seeing your lovely Master bedroom.

Happy weekend
Hugs
Carolyn

Liz said...

I agree nothing like a great laundry room! We just gave ours a make over!
Love the accents....

Melanie said...

I loved my laundry room in Kentucky. I am going to have to pretty this new one up too. The color of the W & D is so you:)

My least favorite thing to do is ironing too!

Oh ya, and I am counting my blessing too because I just got my dryer fixed yesterday after being without it since the end of October. Washing clothes here and then taking them to the laundry mat to dry was a pain!

Richella said...

My goodness, Melissa, your laundry room is as clean as the rest of your house! Boy, I wish you could come here and straighten me out!! :)

Although I do a load of laundry everyday, I would do two loads if I had a room like that!

Take care,

Your laundry room has inspired me. I'm going to spend a day or two on mine before posting photos.

Becca said...

What a beautiful laundry room! I love the paint color ... the pretty baskets you store your laundry goodies in ... and your iron pieces are the perfect finishing touch! Totally diggin' your front load washer/dryer, too! I'll happily do laundry in your pretty space anytime! Hugs, Becca

I just found your blog through Kara at Elements Interiors. I'm just loving your reading corner!

Erin@likegrandmas said...

Lovely laundry! The bow with the sign is my fave!

Teri said...

I love every inch of your home!! Your laundry room is really pretty.

I was behind on three posts...not two. Touring your home was a perfect end to a great day!

I hope you have a wonderful week, Melissa. Keep on inspiring! Love ya!

vikki said...

Lovely room. My youngest son is in the Philippines on a church mission and he washes his clothes in a bucket. It makes me smile since he now really appreciates a washing machine. He will never be the same and that is a good thing.

Tara G. said...

As soon as I saw the sign on the link, I knew it was yours! Lovely as usual!! Have you had to have any furniture repaired at your current locale? I am in need of someone so I can file our claim- seriously, I hate this part of moving!!!

Traci@ Beneath My Heart said...

Melissa,
Your laundry room is so clean and inviting! I love the "count your blessings" sign. I definitely have to remind myself of my blessings when doing laundry! :)
Thanks for linking up to my party.
Blessings!

Crystal @ Ordinary Days said...

Love your laundry room and you're right, a laundry room is a blessing. That's a good reminder. I need to work in my "blessing" tomorrow. LOL
