Washboard Wall Art

Vintage Laundry Room Decor www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
I am still working on redecorating my laundry room after painting the walls from "Sawdust" yellow to "Dover White".  This is the "before".

Instead of hanging my vintage washboards all individually on the wall, I decided to attach them together to form one piece of wall art.  The "legs" were all cut off to make the bottom edge flush, and mending braces were added to the back to join the washboards together at the sides.  I really had to get past the idea that I was ruining the washboards, and think that I was up-cycling the washboards into a piece of laundry room wall art.  After all I won't be using them, they are there for decoration.

The piece is just so much more streamlined!

The red bowl shelf was was lightened up with Annie Sloan "old white" Chalk Paint.

I may or may not add more to this wall!  Trying to hold back, but this is an "Organized Clutter" blog!

Thanks for visiting!
