This lovely is sitting in the garage waiting for me to make up my mind....poor thing might be there a while. =(
'To Tuft or Not To Tuft?" That is the BIG question!
Laundry is a chore like any other, but wouldn't it be nice to have one of these rooms to do it in? I can't stop thinking about having my own laundry room. I currently have a laundry closet, and of all the things in my home, I HATE it! The next house will have to have a laundry room, but until then I will dream.
I love how the counter goes over the machines, and they are tucked back flush with the cabinets.
The colors and wallpaper are great. I definitely want color in mine. These counter tops don't suck either.
This storage closet is perfect, and I love the siding on the wall.
Dreamy! I love this, I think I want more color in mine, but this has everything I could hope for.
I want a sink for sure, and I'm digging the skirt, pretty and functional.
These are just a few of my inspirations. It's pretty sick that I dream about my laundry room?!

This coffee table is going to be transformed in the next couple weeks. I recently discovered that I needed a tufted ottoman for the living room. Really, I need one. lol I got this baby of craigslist for $20! SCORE!
We had a coffee table many moons ago, but the kids kept running into it. I figure this way if they run into it, it won't hurt them and I can still have a coffee table. I will HAVE to hunt goodwill or some other such store for a tray I can refinish to place on top of it. I don't think it would be very functional with out a flat surface of some kind. And really? What kind of project would it be if it didn't lead to another!!! HA!!!
This was Big Lots find yesterday. What a cute bamboo frame, I couldn't pass it up. It was a little pricey at $7, but it's going to fit perfect in my bathroom. That is, after a good white washing. I swear 1/2 the stuff I buy has to be tweaked.
I bought this to store pictures in, they were starting to take over my closet. One of these days I'll post a picture of the closet, I actually don't hate it. I just need to 'clean' it up a little first. Maybe I'll start on that today? Maybe.

Okay, so I didn't fall of the face of the Earth I've just been busy. I hope you like this NO SEW project I came up with. I'm rather proud of it myself. I was going to sew it together and then thought what if I want to use them for something else? Safety pins to the rescue.
I was going to buy these at Walmart for $3 each, but instead found them at Big Lots for $2.50 each. Let me just say, I love Big Lots! I've never been before, but I will be back!!!
Okay, so I placed them in the order I thought they would look good, to get an idea of what it was going to look like finished.
Then I got out my handy dandy safety pins.
I used two for each connection, wanted it to lay nice, especially where they hang over the sides. I didn't want them going crazy on me. Let me tell you, this only took like 5 minutes. This project isn't hard or time consuming.
Here it is in place, I wanted you to see it before I put all my holiday stuff on it. Yes, I'm decorating for Fall already. Those of you who know me know this is a big deal, I have never decorated for anything other than Christmas and I only did that for the kiddos.
TA DA! Love it. This makes me happy!
Here it is again from another angle, so you can see my adorable pumpkin sign.
I have more Fall stuff to share, not a ton. I did get into the spirit of Fall more this year than EVER!
Thanks for stopping buy, and please let me know what you think!
