Laundry Room Update 2

I realized when I was playing in the laundry room this weekend that I was ready for a change of scenery. {To see my original laundry room post way long ago, see here.} Did you notice yesterday the little peak of art behind the laundry soap?


I switched a few things around and added the dual coral artwork I did a few weeks ago into matted white frames. It was the touch of liveliness the room needed. The vibe in our laundry room is fresh and beach-ish, which go hand in hand in my opinion.




This little sweetie likes to accompany me on my little projects, especially in the laundry room since her treats are in one of those sisal baskets! 


The pink and white striped container {seen above} had been sitting on this shelf, but I moved the mercury glass container over here and added some faux hydrangeas. Faux is not usually my thing, but these are about as nice as you can find. 


I still wasn't quite satisfied so I added some hydrangeas in shades of blue and green that I just finished drying from the yard this year. So much better! {By the way, my method of drying hydrangeas is really complex- I let them sit in a vase for weeks and they slowly dry out. These turned out perfect.}


This time of year, this shelf holds our straw hats for days on the boat, but in the winter you can find it overtaken by jackets and coats.

*Also* my DIY striped cork board seen above and in this post is being featured on Craftbaby for Cork Board inspiration! If you have one to add, enter the contest! :)

So what do you think? Do you like the updates? 
Hope y'all have a great Tuesday! xoxo.
