day 229: subway art for the laundry

perfect wall art for my unloved but overused the laundry

day 229 and my laundry is an unloved place ... it doesn't have a lot of character, space, or storage, but way too much use.  i figured given it is used so much and i spend so much time getting washing in and out of the little space i would give it some love ... in the form of subway wall art :)

today's subway art is from simple crafter and is pinned to my mudroom/laundry room board on pinterest.  she has a load of free printables, including heaps of subway art.  it's free but you do need to have an email account to be able to download them here.

i used an A4 frame and printed it out, put it on the wall ... very easy day for creating today :)

the subway art used today from simple crafter

framed and ready to hang

hung, i think i may need a few more goodies in here before i am completely happy, still a little bland and boring :)
outcome:  well at least it adds something that isn't to be washed into the laundry ;)  actually the colours are really pretty in it and i may purchase some little things to put in the laundry using this colour palette.  i am loving subway art at the moment but its definitely not something i want in every room in the house.  in a lot of ways it's the perfect art for the laundry .. ooooh and definitely the perfect art for holidays!

my thanks goes to simple crafter, love the FREE subway art and i will definitely be back for the valentines subway art download in a weeks time :)

Very cute! I love yellow and turquoise together and it looks great with grey! I just need one big sign for Luis that says, "EMPTY YOUR POCKETS!" You would not believe the number of drill bits, screws, nuts, bolts, pencil stubs, etc that I find in the washer and dryer!

Lol at Jens comment! :)
Love this idea for the workhouse room, I'm thinking James would appreciate this too with his fascination for all things washing!!!
