Laundry Room Fun

Normally I would never take time to paint a laundry room. . . but since we are now going on snowed-in day No. 4, and we had some sheet rock work done to it last fall, (due to some minor water damage), I decided to take on the project. Now, because the laundry room is never really seen, I thought I would be creative and have some fun with it.

A couple chevron walls from my "b-boppin" inspirational folder :

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Wall

You can do this in just about any room.

 Step 1. Pick your wall (Mine, as mentioned earlier is a wall in the laundry room)

 Step 2. Measure out how many lines you want, then tape off. This is the trickiest and most time consuming part. I use FROG tape (I don't know what I would do without it). Having a level laser helps too.

 Step 3. Take a razor knife and cut the excess tape to get a smooth point

 Step 4. Paint your desired color between every other section. I chose a blue, which totally turned out gray!

 Step 5. By FAR the best part. . . REMOVE the tape and see your CREATION.

I LOVE leaving this door open now!

snow day No. 3

Last night Brian and I got out of the house, braved the icy and snowy streets, and went to hang with some friends. This is where I received some refreshing recipes that I could try during my 3rd day snowed in at home.

This morning I experimented. . .

A chocolate banana smoothie. Delish! (and it took all of two seconds to make. . . so much for making the day go by fast until my hubby got home from work!)

I didn't measure anything out. I usually don't, so I'll just estimate and you can just work with me.

1 Frozen Banana
1 Tablespoon-ish of Nutella (MY FAVE)
1 Liberal Glug of Soy Milk

Blend it (in a blender), sip it, and forget about it! YUM!

Next time I might add some greek yogurt or some other tasty items to it, but I was ALL out so I obviously didn't this time around.

snow day No. 2

Somebody is VERY ready to go play outside again. . . and again. . . and again. . .
