As much as I’m pleased with the laundry makeover, I thought it was a bit bright and utilitarian which could be softened with the addition of some neutral colours and more homely elements. After much cutting and framing and hammering, I have this little gallery wall.

So do you like the newest addition to our laundry? Guess what? It cost me a grand total of zero dollars! I have a non-existent decorating budget right now, but I didn’t let that stop the nesting urge, so I raided the house for items that could be given a new purpose.

I figure we could all do with some affordable art ideas, so I’ll go through all the details in series of posts starting tomorrow.
