Last spring I decide to add a little fun to the room that I spend a lot of time in. Any moms of boys can probably guess which room I’m talking about! Can you guess which room that is??? Yep, our Laundry Room!! As soon as I get through all the piles of laundry there always seems to be a new pile waiting for me by the evening. 4 boys seem to go through a lot of clothes really quickly around here.
One day while at a craft store I saw a section of home decor items with yellow and gray together. They had items with chevron, stripes, and different floral prints. I loved the look and decided to use those colors through out the room. I painted the walls a light gray and then on one wall painted light yellow stripes. You can see how I did that HERE. I also made a Chevron Peg Board to help organize my cleaning supplies that I also painted gray and yellow. It turned out pretty cute as well and you can read how I did that HERE.
After painting and making the peg board I wasn’t sure what else I wanted to do in that room so I decided to think about it and collect some more ideas. I have found some really cute quotes and art ideas for laundry rooms that I’m going to put together and share with you next week. I’ve got some cute free printables that will look adorable in frames to share. Eeeek, I can’t wait to show you guys!!
So, right before Christmas a company called Levolor asked me to write a review for their Premium Faux Wood Cordless Blinds. I was able to put these blinds in any room of the house, but thought that this would be the perfect opportunity for me to complete the laundry room with some new blinds. I like the idea of cordless blinds in this room in particular to give it a nice clean look without all the fuss of cords hanging everywhere.
To start my project I went to the Lowe’s website and looked at everything that they had to offer for this room before heading out to our local Lowe’s. You can also click HERE to see their products as well. I decided on a 2″ white Premium Faux Wood Cordless blind. Perfect for this room!
Once at Lowe’s the guys in the home decor department were so helpful and eager to help me find what I was looking for. The window in that room is 22.5′ x 55′ (don’t forget to measure before you go) . They didn’t have blinds that exact size so we went with blinds that were 23′ x 72′ that they could cut down for me in the store.
At Lowe’s they have this really cool machine that cuts your blinds down for you right there in the store while you finish shopping. The people at Lowe’s were able to type in the dimensions that I needed for my blinds, and the machine cuts it down while even still in the box. It’s really amazing! They were able to cut these down to size in less than 5 minutes!! I was so amazed. And it did a beautiful job too. I’m really excited about this window.
Once the machine was done they packaged the ends of the box and I was out and back at home installing my blinds. I can’t wait to show you how they look in our laundry room! You will have to wait till next week. I’m hoping to finish the room before showing you pictures. 🙂 I can’t wait! Go check these cool blinds out HERE! You’ll love them!
