Laundry Update

Last week when I had my few extra days off work I had time to make some little wooden chalkboard tags for my laundry jars. I had been looking out for some nice big jars to put on my laundry bench with my soaker and soap powder in. Most I have seen were about $40 each – way more than I was planning to spend so I kept searching until I came across these beauties at K-Mart for $5 each. Perfect for what I wanted. I searched through some old craft boxes and found these wooden hearts so I gave them a quick spray with some chalkboard paint and they were ready to go. A quick hole drilled in them and tied up with a bit of jute and they were finished.

I had put these bird cages up a while ago and yesterday I added the Family Rules sign. It is a very long narrow room with a door at each end so it’s really difficult to photograph. The Family Rules sign is opposite the bench with the hand basin. I think I might add a couple more jars along the bench – at that price it’s so easy!!!
