And last but very not least, I found this cheerful canvas art from Target because heck, today & everyday is a very good day! I don’t know about you, but an unexpected reminder that life really is amazing is much appreciated, especially when I’m cursing under my breath as I finish the laundry. I’m one lucky lady and have so much to be thankful for. This positive reminder makes sure I remember just that…
Yay for amazingly creative people who share their creations with the world to enjoy over & over again on the internet. I mean seriously though, I love them! It’s crazy how generous & resourceful the internet can be and how many amazing treasures you can borrow from the internet to make your home perfect for you & your style…. all free thanks to the selfless talents people share every single day! That’s pretty much exactly what I did for my laundry room gallery wall. Why go out and buy art, especially when you can’t find the perfect pieces, when you can find what you’re looking for as a free printable online?
Plus, I won’t feel bad re-doing my little wall of laundry room “happy” whenever I feel like it, as in when these bright summer colors fade into the fall.
But let’s not get a head of ourselves here, I’m still loving the bright and cheery personality these pieces bring. Here’s where I got each…
The basket may just be my favorite part of this gallery wall. I love that it adds some serious function to the wall. It is designed to hold socks that don’t have a pair at the moment- you know, those socks that had a partner when they were thrown into the wash but somehow lost their better halves along the way. #hatethat
The pink love quote was a greeting card from Target! I had it left over from this project and thought it could be a perfect fit for this colorful combo. I’m not typically someone who decorates with pink (especially for the sake of Matt), but I thought since I do most of the laundry… why not?! Plus, after our long & brutal Chicago winter, I just can’t get enough of these bright colors this Spring!
This hook also adds some serious function to the space and is so convenient on a day-to-day basis. It’s a three piece hook that I scored at HomeGoods for $5 (on sale!). I’ve been using it to hang my work blouses that can’t be put into the dryer, especially when I’m too lazy to get a hanger. It’s the perfect temporary solution when I’m in a rush and trying to change loads with little maintenance. I really do use it for at least three different shirts during most loads… it’s perfect!
You can download your own version of this laundry cheat sheet here. If you don’t like yellow, this print comes in four adorable colors. I enlarged the image and actually cut off some of the print (like the title) when I framed the chart. I thought it was a fun way to see the symbols more clearly and add a pop of laundry room color, plus I had an awkward 4×6 frame to fill and it just seemed to work. I mean how adorable are these FREE charts by Jennifer? What color do you like the best?
If you know me outside of the blog, you probably know that I love junk food- especially donuts. I have never met a donut I didn’t like love and so it’s no surprise that I adore the donut-as-decor trend that’s happening around the blogosphere. I used this adorable donut printable paired with a piece of old scrapbook paper. The printable comes with at least a baker’s dozen of colorful donuts to choose from, unfortunately, I could only fit 3 into the mix. If you end up using these sweet prints for anything, you have to let me know!! I’d love to see how you put your own spin on them, plus, a little extra inspiration to use the rest of these donuts is much welcomed.
I’m a sucker for Sarah M. Dorsey designs… I mean seriously, her free printables are amazing, plus there are so many to choose from!! You can find this flamingo here, but wow… don’t miss out on her polka dot print, Be Amazing printable, or her super creative His & Hers frame ideas & prints!! Did I mention that she offers almost all of her free prints in a variety of colors to fit your space? Ugh…. love her!
And how stinkin’ cute are these stain removal tags? I found this free printable from the Better Homes and Gardens website. I used the yellow tags, but they come in a variety of colors and with a variety of directions for any type of stain you can imagine. Lipstick, grass, a few types of food, even wine! Such an adorable idea that can be used in all sorts of ways in the laundry room. Check out how they use them on a ring… love!
Plus, I can’t say no to my favorite pop of blue-y teal.
I’m so thankful for the crazy creative (and generous) people that put this amazing art on the internet for people like me to use! The color, the personality, the price tag… I love it all.
But let me ask you… where are your favorite places to get free printables?! Where do you use free art in your home? Do you change it often or is it typically there to stay? I’d love to hear from you…
In case you missed it…
