Mudroom love

Not to be confused with Muskrat Love (that was the theme last week), my love this week is for our newly-completed mudroom/laundry. (See old room here.)
I love the way my "clothesline series" from Italy turned out - so inexpensive to do with two-dollar prints from Kinko's and half-price frames from Hobby Lobby.
I even like the curtain that hides the washer and dryer with my enameled French cow I completely forgot I had, and the vintage "Family Dog House" plaque salvaged from my mother-in-law's house.
Yes, that's me in the doghouse. I can be a real bitch during home improvement projects.

We don't know from mud rooms in Sherman Oaks, but if I had one, I'd want one just like yours. Beautiful work. Look out Pioneer Byotch, here comes the BG.

Thankie. 'Mudroom' may be a misnomer as the room rarely sees actually mud. We should call it a shoe/hat/eco-responsible shopping bag/hoodie room.

Anon, the color on the upper wall is something Harvest Gold. The green is Amazon Moss. Both are Benjamin Moore.
