Over the past week...I have been busy.....VERY BUSY!!!! I have not even had time to update my blog...and I really have lots to talk about and show you....hopefully, this next week I will catch up and post about a little home improvement project....today, you will get a sneak peek.
Over the weekend, with my husband out of town, my son and I did a little remodel work on my laundry room.....It has made a huge difference.....next week, I will show you the before shots...if I can work up the courage....and the rest of the project completed.......
I think I have mentioned a time or two that I collect vintage platters.........do you remember me saying that???
I would like you to see how I display them.(as always you can click on picture to make it larger) I purchased this handmade rack off of Craigslist a couple of years ago. The original owner said their father made it for them, no nails or screws, used dowels to assemble, and they did not want it anymore...unbelievable.. They told me it was fashioned from a vintage display rack they had seen in a movie...it has been shoved in my laundry room, and I have to say, not nicely displayed like it is now....
The paint color on the walls is new also, it is a nice vintage green/blue, very cool and calming....you know, you need a calming effect when you are tackling laundry!
On the wall behind the rack, I hung three of my recent finds. I think the two outer ones came from Goodwill and the middle one was a flea market find....I love the flowers...
I started to paint this very 1970's coffee mug rack, but so far, I have not touched it, I used it to display some of my creamers......
Here is another shot of the creamers on top of the rack and all my platters...well, not ALL of them.....but most! I love vintage platters and creamers and it took me a very LONG time to find a way to display them so I can enjoy them....and enjoying them....I finally am doing just that!!
Just look at all this goodness........makes my heart sing!!
This is the view from the hallway.....This rack fits perfectly after we removed some shelving that filled this space....it really fits like it was made for the spot...thanks to my son for all his hard work....he is such a sweet heart.....and he is single......just saying......
The basket is a laundry basket, but I have my clothes hangers stored in it and tucked under the rack out of the way........
Hope you enjoyed this little peek at a major undertaking that went on here this past weekend during my husbands trip to Colorado, boy will he be SHOCKED when he gets home....I will follow up next week with the rest of the story and more vintage goodies!!!!
Have a great week everyone and a wonderful first weekend of October....can you believe that???? Already.
Great big cloud at daybreak
