The Laundry Room

When most folks come into the shop, they seem to enjoy the laundry room in a detergent bottle most of all... The element of surprise I suppose.

Here are a two examples of laundry rooms done by friends of mine. The large Tide bottle was done by Pat Angrick, and is currently on display at the shop. Many of the pieces in it were made during a workshop that Pat organized through AIM a few years ago. Notice that the washer and dryer are vintage salt and pepper shakers.

The other laundry room was done by Jane Lane, and is in an antique iron box. Love the way she thought outside of the roombox and went for an interesting container.

I am currently working on my own version of this. "Imitation is the sincerest of flattery," says Charles Caleb Colton, and I must concur. I am also working on another laundry room in a wooden Ivory Soap box. It's much easier to go and do laundry when you've got a cute roombox to look at while you're there.

So keep thinking outside the box.
