Laundry room signs

Do you do laundry all the time?  Oh yes, me too!  Ha.  I feel like it's a never ending cycle.  This is one of my favorite memes that I can totally relate to.

Because I feel like even before I'm done with it all and it's put away ---- it starts all over again.  That and the dishes.  I need to think of a way to make these tasks fun and I'd be a millionaire.

But in the meantime, a while back, I thought it would be fun to spruce up our little laundry room.  It's not the biggest and most awesome space, but it beats having to go to the basement like our old house!  There is lots of space and storage to store things and it suits us just fine!

However, I contemplated the need to decorate it.  Because WHO cares.  Well, after doing the never ending loads of laundry that comes with a family of 5, I decided it was time to get some cute AND useful decor.

I purchased the Laundry room sign in the middle and the rug on the floor (in the last photo) at At Home like a year ago...but never knew how to hang them up and tie it all together.   That's when I found the blue printable that has all the laundry signs (which I SOOOO need #notalaundryexpert) and thought it would go perfect.  I needed something to hang on the other side and that's when I went for function.

I ALWAYS feel like I get behind on the sheets, towels, kids towels, kitchen towels, etc.   Like there are so many things to wash now that I needed some sort of system to track when I did it last.  Mainly so I can know just how long I've let them go unwashed and then solidify the fact that I'm gross.  Ok, not really - ha.  #butkindof  No - this little sign that I made in PowerPoint, just goes through the main things that need to be washed in our house and let's me use a dry erase marker to note what date they were last washed.  Nothing fancy (just like my menu board), but it WORKS!  I love that I'm not trying to remember - was it last week, two weeks ago, or heaven forbid a month (or two) ago.   I promise that doesn't happen often...but sometimes because, you know, that's life and a little grime never hurt anyone, right?  (just tell me that)

Here's a close up of the fun.

I love the way the signs and rug tie it together.  This is one of the few rooms left in our house (our bedroom and bathroom and dining room as well) that are this dark brown color - so I'm sure we'll get around to painting it soon. But for now, I'm happy with the little pops of color to make myself feel like I'm a super laundry mom.

Do you have an awesome laundry room?  I'll be forever jealous of Shay's (see it here), but that's not real life either --- so I'm happy with mine!!!


  1. The computer teacher in me loves the PPT sign!! Such a cute idea! Wish I had laundry advice for you, but it seems I'm always drowning in it. All. The. Time. It's my least favorite household chore. I'm fact, it's what I'm tackling today! It's good to know I'm not alone though! ;)

  2. So cute!!! P.S. Shay's everything is to-die for. But she has also published a book (or books!), is sister to The Bachelor, and has more money than I'll ever know.
