It wasn't just that they were hard on the eyes. It was that they were sending me subliminal messages. Even if I walked through the mudroom carefully averting my eyes from the large white appliances, I couldn't avoid eye contact with the clothespins. Everywhere I looked, there they were... staring at me, taunting me, making it impossible for me to forget that there were piles of laundry awaiting my attention. I simply could not have my wallpaper applying that kind of pressure.
In keeping with our theme of "hiding the dirt," I chose a paint color that would camouflage fingerprints and whatever other messes made their way onto the walls. So, the clothespins came down and the paint went up.
Do you like the effort I put into staging the room for this photo? The tangled vacuum hose is a nice touch.
We continued the paint into the side-entry hallway.
This is the view from the hallway looking into the laundry/mudroom.
Again you can see my exemplary staging techniques. Just keeping it real, folks!
There's still lots to do in this area of the house, so I'd better get busy. Coming soon: a countertop and sink makeover.
Hope your day is dirt and laundry-free!
