My Ugly Laundry Room

One of my summer goals was to redo our laundry room (and half bath).

That didn't happen.

But now it could.  Because I'm entering a contest.  If I happened to win, Vintage Revivals and all her lovely sponsors would come to my house and fix up my laundry room.


So now I have to prove my case.

I mean, really the pictures say it all.  We don't even put toilet paper on the roll anymore as this commode malfunctions consistently.  And by malfunctions I mean we have to use every single towel in our house to mop up the overflow.....

A non-working toilet is pretty bad.  But it does get worse.......

I think the rest of the issues can best be expressed in a poem.  It's my favorite way to plead a case.....

My Ugly Laundry Room

Please fix my laundry, oh the reasons why
If you saw it, it'd make you cry

The floor is vintage vinyl, yellowed from age
And under the washer it was ripped in a rampage

Walls are adorned in seventies wallpaper
It's ugly and peeling and must undergo a scraper

An outdated light fixture and chipped sink too
This 1967 time capsule makes me very blue

Did I mention the toilet never flushes the right way?
Every time we try, we must mop in dismay

Please come to my rescue Vintage Revivals and crew
If you come through, I'll forever be true


Now it's out of my hands and into yours.  Winners will be selected by YOU!  You can vote for my ugly laundry room by visiting Vintage Revivals, finding my entry (#131), and casting your vote for me.

I would flip out if I got a few votes.  And I would be ever so grateful.  Love you forever and all that stuff.

May the odds be ever in my favor.

Sorry.  I couldn't resist.


  1. Ooh - I will vote.
    And I throw around the "odds" line every chance I get. It never gets old. :)

  2. Is it wrong that I'm kind of in love with that wallpaper? Regardless, I voted for you :)
