A few weeks ago, I saw these painted apple baskets at Brown Paper Packages. I loved how they looked and was excited to discover they would fit over the cupboards in our laundry room. I’ve been wasting the space up there!
I knew I wouldn’t do cream, because from the start, my plan was for this room to be bright, colorful, and cheerful. You know, so that I would giddily anticipate folding clothes in there. Heh.
So the decor has been based around the colors in this valance:
I won’t give instructions since Kierste does a great tutorial, but here are my paint colors in case anyone is interested.
Also, I remembered these mini chalkboards I had found new-in-the-package a few months ago at Goodwill.
Five–perfect! I decided to use them instead of numbers so that I could label the contents of the baskets.
So after painting, tying on some fabric, and attaching the chalkboards with hot glue, I lined up my cheerful baskets above the cupboards. (The cupboards that I keep going back and forth about painting. Hmm,)
