It gives me such pleasure to give things new life and save our landfills a little at a time.

You would not believe how dirty these chairs were when I first bought them. I brought them home after getting them at the thrift store and first I painted the legs and distressed them and then I cleaned them. My trick to cleaning clothes and upholstery is so good most of the time. Sometimes it will take out color so you have to test before doing this for sure........Okay what I do when I begin is pour peroxide all over the stain, let it soak in really good and then I pour baking soda ontop of the whole area and I let it sit for as long as possible. 1 hour right thru to 24 hours. The worse the stain the longer I let it sit. It is unbelievable how good it works. These chairs turned out just beautifully. I do it on clothes all the time too and it is just like magic...........try it you won't believe it, oh by the way it can be used on carpet too.

There was no Before of this room and interestingly enough it was the room with the most dramatic change. This room was just filthy and full of junk and it was so fun to transform it into something so clean and fresh and bright. The laundry room is a room in a house that is one of my favorites to spend time in so this was really one of my favorites even though it is just plain and basic but it had such great space when it was done. The blue was so soft and easy to live with and we added lots of shelves that you can't see in this but it would be a great laundry room/craft room as well........or who knows what it could be.......anything someone needs it for. Extra space is always welcome in any home.
