My laundry room redo

I have a blog that I read regularly. It is Organizing made Fun. I love this blog and it has sooo many organization and decorating ideas. So. after reading and gathering ideas, I finally decided to revamp my laundry room. I have had this sad laundry room and I wanted to spruce it up and cover this ugly whole in the wall from some work we had done. It was painted sage green last year.

These are the flowers that I am using in the room so I chose the pink and dark purple from it.
I painted strips on with pretty perfect straight lines.
I covered foam board with scrap book paper to cover where the pipe goes up from the dryer and arranged my shelf neatly. I have my helpful hints/cleaning books there and a basket for dryer balls, and misc stuff.
The side wall has a shelf too and I keep blankets, towels and added some decorations to see out.
I needed something for the opposite side wall, so I made this Laundry sign. I just took wood, covered it with scrapbook papers with the same colors. I added hooks so we can hang some things to dry. I really like it
I made this to cover up that ugly hole in the wall. I wanted something whimsical and something funny to add that "Special" touch. This lady loves to garden but has NO time for the horrible laundry. She had tons of shopping to do, lol

It took alot of time and I am happy with it .
