If doing the laundry seems like such a heinous, boring chore, the problem might be your boring washing machine! Just kidding, the problem is the laundry. Laundry is the worst. Until they invent a washing machine that dries, folds, and puts away your clothes, or alternately, we all become nudists, laundry is something we’re just going to have to deal with. Might as well accept it. (Unless you guys are on board with the nudist thing. No? Are you sure? REALLY sure? Ok, but I thought of a funny name: The Nudest Nudists. Haha! Still no? Right. I was just checking).
Anyway. You may have to accept laundry in your life, but you don’t have to accept a boring washing machine. Medina at Grillo Designs figured out a way to bring a little excitement to hers with …
… this! What do you think it is? Paint? Vinyl? Stickers? Stencils? Guess again. “That’s all of my guesses,” you are thinking. “There is literally nothing else it could be unless she somehow cut a piece of fabric to fit perfectly over the front panel and around the door and applied it with a mixture of glue and mod-podge.”
Well I’ll be darned. You’re right. You’re so smart. Check out Medina’s process on her blog!
And if you want to add some more excitement to your entire laundry room, you’re only fooling yourself, I mean, yes, totally, good idea. That will obviously make laundry a party. Party time! All kidding aside, jazzing up your laundry room really does make laundry more enjoyable. That’s a scientifically proven fact.
She says, “I’ve wanted to do that for a very long time. Finally did it. Freehand, as you can tell. Just a straight edge and sponge brush with paint. Each of the four colors used was leftover paint from other rooms in the house. (I like color). It’s a relatively small change to the room, but it carries surprisingly high impact in person.”
How fun, right? I love that she went all the way across the ceiling. Now I’m dying to see the rest of the house!
