Laundry Room Makeover...and Sewing!



Last week was kind of an interesting week...I had a lot of free time, but since my main sewing machine was in the shop I concentrated on some projects that had been on "the list" for awhile. First I made some Composition Book cover and sunglass case sets (these had already been cut out and have just been sitting).  I think they will be great to have on hand for gifts.


Once you start making those book covers...you can't stop. Since I had never made one for me, I ordered the label from Sweetwater that coordinates with their new Lucy's Crab Shack fabric to make myself one.



And...last week I finally got the courage to repaint my laundry room.  Here are a couple of "before" pictures. My old laundry room was kind of blah, boring...things just put in there to decorate that "kind of" went together. For a couple of years I've been wanting to paint it aqua...so with the husband at work and my son at football camp...I finally decided to take the plunge!


Notice the very wavy border on the America quilt above...this was one of my first quilts ever...most of the points are chopped off, and the border is so wavy since I really didn't know what I was doing. But I love this quilt.  I smile everytime I see it because it reminds me that once upon a time I had the courage to start a new hobby and keep at it!



And here are the "now" photos.  I haven't really decided what is going on the walls yet, but I've started with a few things. I have to say, I love the aqua...it seems like my laundry room was always supposed to be this color...isn't that funny...color is amazing! My laundry room is at the end of a hallway, and I have been smiling for a week every time I look in!


My family thinks I'm a little silly...but I think I could live in an almost entirely aqua house. I won't really paint everything aqua...but my sewing room will definitely be this color before the end of the summer!



I want this room to be simple, but I wanted to bring in a few things I love, too.


The large aqua jar is a recent purchase from Home Goods, but the bud vase was my great-Grandmother's (she must have loved aqua, too!)...and the little bluebird was a gift from my grandmother several years ago.





Last, but not least...here is this week's giveaway for my 4-year Blogiversary celebration...it's a Layer Cake of Moda's Collection for a Cause, Friendship. Just leave a comment on this post, and I'll pick a winner this weekend.

PS...My machine is back and sewing wonderfully...nothing was wrong...but what a difference a good cleaning and oiling makes!


Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful week!

I LOVE the color!!!! You made a great choice!!!

tpott said...

Congratulations again on your 4 year blogversary! YAY! Glad your machine is back and nothing was wrong. It's amazing how much we miss our machines, even if they're only gone a short time. My parents recently painted their living room and dining room a light aqua blue from peach. What a major difference, so much better, really I can't even explain the change. Enjoy your new laundry room! (you know what I mean) ;-> Toni Anne

love the aqua - I have laundry room envy, as mine are in a dingy basement with little hope for sparkle - though I do gaze at my LG HE washer and dryer frequently -and it's been almost a year! LOVE THEM!!!

Renea said...

I really like your laundry room. Love that it has a sink and all those cupboards. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Jayne Honnold said...

I have a serious case of laundry room envy! Mine is most disgusting; I will dream of aqua walls instead of unpainted concrete blocks. The giveaway is divine! I've been eying this line ever since it came out! Thanks for the opportunity!

tubilinha tiacarminha said...

JoAnne said...

I can't believe the transformation that the aqua made. Could you tell us the brand/color? Also, I have that America quilt, too! I love Little Quilts patterns.

pianomama said...

Love the room! I'd love to have a laundry room - mine is a sliding door closet next to the kitchen table - and with six kiddos, there's always someone's dirties under the table for dinner......UGH!

kshackabq said...

Sherri, your laundry room looks terrific, and your America quilt is very special. What is it about aqua? We painted our laundry room aqua 3 years ago, and I still love it!

quiltgrammy said...

Love the aqua in the laundry room and I'm sure it will be beautiful in your sewing room.
Congrats on 4 years of blogging, great giveaway, thanks for the chance to win.

Rachel said...

I LOVE your aqua laundry room. I'd want to spend all day in there (well, maybe not, but it would make doing laundry a bit more enjoyable). My laundry room is in the ugly, dark basement with cinder block walls. There's just no hope...

The Woolen Cellar said...

I love the aqua in your laundry room. I've been wanting to use this color in one of my rooms and your photos helped to make up mind. The color is so clean and refreshing looking...think I'll do my bedroom in this color.

Anna said...

Wow! The color is lovely and makes such a difference. I would be smiling too. What paint and color did you use?

Tracee said...

Wow the laundry looks fab! I love your book cover too, great job.

Diana said...

I know the feeling of looking at something new and enjoying it each time you see it.

Betty said...

That is a very lovely color for the laundry room. Glad your machine is 'feeling' better!

Laurel said...

My house was built in the mid-60s and my sink, cooktop and wall oven are aqua. I NEVER thought I would like it, but I've grown to love it. Now I'm afraid one of the appliances will break and the aqua will have to go! Congrats on having the courage (and empty house!) to paint your laundry room the color you wanted!

hiyacinth said...

Bravo for a great endeavor--I really admire the color and the effort in painting! Every time I've decided to paint, I've regretted it! Not the results, just the process!

Mom C said...

Don't tell me color doesn't make a difference! I painted my kitchen a soft mint green and I love it. It really makes me happy. Congrats.

Sharon - Lilabelle Lane said...

Your laundry looks great. I have started to add aqua to my kitchen.

Dawn said...

Color is sooo important in our lives and to have the colors we love near us most definitely changes how we feel. Love the aqua! :)

Betty Lou said...

Thanks for the tip about the Sweetwater labels. I'm going to go visit them next.

Oh my I need to get painting in my house! This might be the inspiration I need! Beautiful!

Julie B. said...

Love the book cover and the laundry room! I just repainted mine too! I cleared everything out and gave it a simple look. Really helps me to do the laundry! There are so many book cover tuts out there. Did you use a specific one? Also, love your blog header! What photo program did you use? I have not found one I really enjoy. Thanks for the great ideas!

Janet said...

I like the bookcover and glasses case set. I also love aqua, My sewing room has always been that colour, even when it was called duck egg blue. Now we have 3 bathrooms and cloak room in it as well.

What a lovely difference. Can't wait to see your sewing room.

Bolo heads said...

I love the laundry, not really but your room is lovely. I am currently looking in the face of at least ten loads of laundry for today. You know it is bad when you can not put together any outfits. Congrats also making it to four years, you are awesome.

Cyndi said...

Getting your machine cleaned is a bit like getting your car washed. I always swear the car drives better when it's clean. And my sewing machine purrs after its' been cleaned.

Love the aqua -- I think it looks like the beach.

mtaylor944 said...

I like the color! My sewing room is also the laundry room and with no windows, I keep a small fan in there for when I'm burning thru the stash! I finally picked up a can of aqua colored spray paint and I'm gonna paint the fan, just for the pure fun on it. Will be nice to add a little more color to my room.
(Thinking now that I might need to paint the whole room. hehe)

sincerely yours said...

Your aqua walls are beautiful and so restful! And the aqua glassware looks wonderful by the sink. I'm always so awed by your quilting ... can't imagine how you accomplish so much!

With an aqua color and a few lovely things a laundry room becomes a fave spot; trade me rooms!! I just love how aqua goes with reds and pinks (i.e. Ruby, Vintage Modern, Apple of My Eye, etc.)--makes me want to start another project. I need one of those like a hole in the head--hey, I have 5 of those already! Thanks for sharing and a chance in the giveaway.

The aqua is fantastic. Love the way your laundry room looks now.

Donna said...

Tackling a paint job in this heat makes you a very determined lady! Aqua was a good choice because it made you happy. Way to Go!

dianehobbit said...

Love aqua too! We should all treasure our early work, not only does it show how far we have come, but it is inspirational to newcomers.

In our former home, I painted a bedroom aqua. When my grown daughter saw the color she said it reminded her of her grandmother's (my mother's) house. I'm not sure it was a compliment but I'm taking it as such. Love that color!
Thanks for the giveaway, too.

Your laundry room looks so pretty! I just recently painted my laundry room, too. It's so nice to have a fresh look.
Congrats on your 4 years of blogging. Here's to the next 4 years of great inspiration!

I love your laundry room! My kitchen has recently been painted aqua. Its supposed to depress the appetite, however we have not noticed a change yet.

I adore aqua too. Even my car is aqua! Aqua and teal (dark aqua?) are my signature colors. Thanks for the giveaway.

Love the aqua laundry room! Its one of my favorite colors; almost makes me want to strip the wallpaper off my laundry room walls and paint, but just am not up for that right now! LOVE the fabric-I used one of the reds from the line for a wallhanging border.
