I hope you all had a fabulous Memorial Day yesterday! It’s always hard to get back into the swing of things after a holiday weekend, but I’ve got some big inspiration for you today! I decided my laundry room was a tad too mundane; anyone else have that same problem? It’s a tiny, dusty space with no natural light & all “builder beige” walls. It was in need of some definite cheering up y’all!
I took inspiration from Purex® Crystals! The luscious scents sent me drifting far away from the mountains of laundry. The 12 Weeks of Freshness Purex® Crystals provides made me want to enhance my laundry life in mores ways than one! Not only is my laundry fresher longer, but my laundry room got a fresh, new update as well!
The watercolor technique is so fast, I was impressed with how quickly I got this done. I did this very small accent wall behind my washer/dryer in less than 30 minutes. I think the key is to work fast & go with the flow. You can always go back & touch things up.
Here’s how the laundry room looked BEFORE, somewhat drab & AFTER, happy as can be!
To get this look, I prepped 2 glass jars- 1 with water only. The other was 1 part wall paint to 1 part water. A small brush & rag is all you need for this project.
Start by painting a small spotty shape on the wall. Then take your rag, dip it in the water & attack your wall. You want to randomly dab & swirl & smooth around/over the paint spot with the wet rag. Continue until the area looks as you desire. From there, keep moving around the wall in chunks until you’ve finished! Let the paint dry overnight then put everything back into place.
Stand back & admire your funky, new, accent wall! I think mine is just perfect for my laundry room! The colors/effect reminds me of the washing machine & all the water slushing around to clean up the clothes.
A ibt more organization, some decorative elements & faux greenery really helped to pull the room together as well. Here’s to hoping laundry won’t be nearly as dreadful as it was previously!
You can add a watercolor wall to any space in your house, or you whole house for that matter! I thought tackling the laundry room first would be a great experiment project with this technique.
Find Purex® Crystals at your local Walmart on the laundry aisle. Be sure to check out all of their new scents- 10 total! Purex® Crystals provide a great scent at a great price!
