I probably have one of the most “not so attractive” laundry areas around. In its defense, the room is very functional. On one side there’s the washer, dryer, and a shower. The other side has a counter with great storage underneath, a big stainless sink, and a potty. I love, love, love my basement shower because I can come in from gardening, get cleaned up, and then come upstairs fresh as a daisy. I would hate to have to walk through my house covered in dirt.
The couple that lived in our house updated this area in the 70’s. I guess the 70’s based on the lovely avocado green and harvest gold pattern that is on the laminate- like wall covering. While not so pretty, it does it’s job and is easy to clean.
I decided to make a new curtain for this room with the goal being not to have to buy anything. I found a piece of fabric in my stash that blended well with the green and gold, lining, thread, and trim. All I needed was an idea and the time to make the curtain. I thought about what I wanted to do for a few days and finally got around to making the curtain. I do much better when I have a pattern with directions to follow, but this turned out pretty well.
I really can’t believe that I’m sharing this ugly room! It’s really not worth trying to do too much to make this space attractive because it is in our basement and is not seen by guests or anyone, (until now).
I’m happy to have a new curtain in my laundry room. It certainly brightens the space.
