I think I’ve got a clock fetish right now. I certainly like numerals (but not math! lol)
I’ve been wanting to do this for quite sometime and finally got around to it after Christmas. My son is in school in Chicago, my step-daughter lives in Atlanta, and Paris, ahhh, well Paris….shouldn’t everyone know the time in Paris?
It reminds me of Europe and old train stations. Since I spend so much TIME doing laundry I thought this would be the perfect spot!
These are 9” clocks from Target that cost a whopping $5 each. I made the tags with cardstock and cut out the letters with my Cricut machine.
This is my laundry room since it’s been painted in Sherwin Williams Versatile Gray.
I love this color as it’s not too gray. It’s definitely a warm gray.
I keep this rolling laundry cart from Pottery Barn under the laundry shoot to catch the dirty clothes the kids would
send throw down from their second floor bathrooms when they were home.
It has the cutest metal tags that read dry clean, whites, and darks.
The door is glass and etched with “Laundry”.
I know this valance looks plain but there’s a great story behind it. Last summer I was shopping in Ethan Allen when they had their Designer’s Floor Sample sale. If you’ve never shopped one of these you must. Things that have been on the showroom floor are drastically reduced in price. Most people think furniture, but what you don’t realize is that when they update their showrooms, they also sell the custom made window treatments that were used on the mock windows in the different rooms along with bedding, etc.
They had two pair of pinch pleated drapes and two matching valances on sale for $250 for each set, regularly $1400. Yes, I paid $500 for 6 pieces of custom made window treatments that would have regularly cost $2800. The fabric is a soft white cotton/linen blend with variations of thin blue stripes. The valances were already mounted on a board. All pieces are fully lined and the trim is gorgeous in person…not too fussy…just very tailored.
I know they are a bit wide for the window, but it was too good to pass up. You’ll have to wait to see where I used the drapes.
I got these great café shelves at Ballard Designs and filled them with fun things.
French enamelware, lavender, a French rug beater, and old handpainted clock face, and the large enamel 14 that I found at the Paris Flea Market.
Castle & Cottage Signs painted the awesome sign.
That’s an ironing board mounted on the wall. It’s the sturdiest I’ve ever had that was on the wall. I’ve had the “built-in” ones with the door and I didn’t much care for their strength. It’s called a Lifestyle ironing center and it comes with the cover but I don’t use it. The board actually swivels 180 degrees.
