Mark and I accomplished one more summer time chore....

We painted and cleaned out the laundry room. Okay, my washer and dryer still do not match. I still have wire shelves and not cabinets over the appliances BUT the laundry room looks so much nicer. Lauri had extra paint and she gave me a gallon when I was up visiting. My sweet husband, who had no desire to paint another room in this house, helped me to empty out and paint this room. I think that the paint color looks good going into my kitchen.

Several ladies on my board,ChristianMoms, wanted to see pictures of my room. So, I am posting some lovely photos (hehehe) of it.

Unmatched dryer and washer. Aren't they lovely? I just haven't been able to spend the money on a matching dryer because that Whirlpool is still working! Call me cheap.

Looking into my kitchen. I think (hope) that the colors work well together.

My new American basket that I picked up at Cracker Barrel. I love it especially since it was on clearance for nearly half price! The other basket holds my aprons.

Even a laundry room needs a little art! My Finding Nemo prints have found a new home. The boys didn't want them in their bathrooms! Go figure!

The old closet that we bought at a seminary yard sale when Mark was a student. These closets were used in the fifties in seminary housing for married students. Since we bought it, it has been painted white, green, fire-engine-red, and now chocolate brown.

I love the Finding Nemo prints and especially the basket for the aprons!

I LOVE baskets and I LOVE apron!! I still use the one you sent me for Christmas!

Very nice! I like the color and the shelving and the baskets and the nemo pix.

I bought my washer and drier new and they don't match because they had the washer I wanted with one company and the drier I wanted with another company. I almost did that with my kitchen appliances, too, but they gave me a better deal to get matching appliances, so I sacrificed what I wanted to save money.

Really nice laundry room, Debbie! Your whole house looks nice (at least what I can see from the glimpses around the corner from the laundry room and from other blog photos). Painting is not something I like to do. But as part of her birthday, Saige, a friend, and I painted Leah's cabinets July 2-3 while she was visiting Daniel in Charleston. David fixed the cabinet where the microwave is. Leah will have to put a "before and after" shot on her blog later.

You are welcome to come and see me and I'll show the the house. LOL

What color did you paint Leah's cabinets?

I guess I should have said something about all of our sons, too. Opps.

Leah Joy,

I am so glad to know that you still use your apron. You will have to come and stay with me for a few days and I'll teach you how to sew some more.

Mrs. Debbie

The washer and dryer won't bother me so much if they were the same COLOR! LOL

My different colored appliances are the first things most people see when they come into my house.

It looks very nice! What color is it exactly? It looks very similar to the girls' bathroom!

And I still think it's funny that our kitchens are the same color!

Here is the link to the color paint:

Grrr. That link isn't working. It's a Benjamin Moore paint called: Mochachino.

I love you and MISS you!
