Dancing in the Utility Room



Every day really is a new day here at White Spray Paint,

and yes, my utility room is cobalt blue.

Every other paint color choice seemed wrong.

Why not, right?

And when I started having all sorts of British colonial

design fantasies after it was painted,

straw baskets seemed right.



But that seemed a little tame

until gold came to mind.


And so it goes.


Now it is the perfect place to dance.

I know that because I was dancing there this morning

as my husband walked by the open door and said,

”Get it Mom.”

What a wonderful room you've created! I wouldn't mind doing laundry if I had such a nice and cheerful place to do it in! May the dance continue!

You are so cute, Laura! I love the color, and how nice and neat it is. My laundry room is in the basement, need I say more?

The cobalt blue with the crisp white looks great! A pretty space to do laundry and dance. :D I had a white and cobalt blue kitchen where I lived before and loved it - my favorite shade of blue.
Enjoy your weekend.

Oh wow! How bright! I love the crispness of the white against it. You've done a great job in such a utilitarian room... can dance in there. Have you re-named it the 'Ballroom'? ...that's an option, you know?

p.s.- I've emailed you about your previous post...

You and I could have so rocked the Rockettes back in the day! and gold were the school colors for my HS. I'm partial to that color combo!

Stunning laundry the color. I'd dance in there too! ;)

Bliss said...

I can't see the floor in my utility room to do the twist, if I tried to dance I'd probably twist an ankle.


Deb said...

Wow I love your laundry room....I can just see you dancing in Hubby would have said the same thing....
