A Corner in My Laundry Room





I bought this wonderful old green cabinet awhile back and it has been here and there in the house. The other day I moved it to the laundry room counter and I think it looks good there...well, at least for now.

The inside has a wonderful vintage wallpaper (bought it like this). Visiting the cabinet are some vintage Scotty Dog planters, an old mirror showing off its back side, a little bird made in Japan and one of my favorite old tins. The tin has children playing and on top are blue birds.

Hanging on the door is a fun old embroidered towel. On the top I have a darling old 1920's Valentine of a boy running with his dog. I love using the pronged flower frogs to hold old pictures, cards and photos. Years ago I had a whole mantel full of frogs and old Christmas postcards.

Hello, Love your Old Green Cabinet:)
I have the little dog with the cart on my shelf. My friend moved and gave me her green cabinet, she had no room. I told her if she would move home I would give it back...Have a lovely Day. Mary:)

I like you move things till I find just the right place for it. I like the green cabinet and the way you decorated it. The towel is to cute.

That is just precious, Becky. I love the color and the vintage wallpaper. You have it accessorized so cutely. I love each and every item. Maybe this will inspire me to get my laundry room back in order ;-) I don't have that little dog and cart.....yet.
