Laundry Fun!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I got some things to show you....wanna see?
But I will forewarn you that it's all about Laundry!  I know, not too exciting, right?
I know this is a reproduction, but it's so sweet and will be perfect in my booth for display or to sell.

Now get a load of this, get it, "get a load !"
Oh, where was I.....yeah right.
How about this sweet vintage chair/step ladder...

When I found her, she was painted black and really needed a new face. So, out came my new Benjamin Moore, Chantilly Lace paint
and a touch of soft gray on the seat and steps.

If you lift up the seat, you have an instant step ladder!

To make it look even more vintage, just add a few grain sacks and link up to Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays!

Having a french laundry bag makes it even more fun doing the laundry!

I've got some pieces that I'm painting and will show them to you a little later.  So stay tuned.

and check out all the good stuff!

Now get out there and find, create and write something wonderful!

How fun Sissie and I so glad to see you back and that you had a fun Sister time...I have Sister envy big time now my Dear friend...Have a GREAT day girl...Hugs and smiles Gloria

Diane said...

Sissie, I like to collect laundry things too. I have a whole shelf of them in my laundry room. I do smile when I look at them, but I don't smile about having to DO the laundry! LOL! It is the most boring task. I used to enjoy hanging it outside....but no time these days....I loved the fresh smell and the "snap" of shaking it out both wet and dry, the pegging, the breeze blowing the clothes....memories!
Hugs Diane

Sissie..I have never minded doing laundry. Even when it was mostly diapers...I loved doing it..of course we hung everything on the clothes line...and..mine were always the whitest! *she bragged*
Love your laundry things too!

Tara said...

Oh Sissie,you make laundry look so chic!..xx

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Sissie, the laundry decor is wonderful and those bags are so cute. Thank you for stopping. think of all the things we can do for our booth with starch and fabric! Galvanized buckets are great and drawers...You will come up with more ideas than me, I can't wait to see! I think there is a lot prettier fabric out there than paper.
