The envy all started when Alison at Broncante Home posted this amazing washer/dyer. I am soooo in love with this but I am sure it does not fit in my beer budget. But I believe in knowing what you want, then trying to figure out how to do it in your budget. So I painted my washer and dyer. And for $2.50 and a 1/2 of my time to boot.
All I did is buy a $1.99 stenciled and some 50 cent red acrylic paint. I taped the stencil on and painted flowers. I painted a few, let it dry and then over lapped some more.
I wanted to share this for two reason. One to motive you to pretty up your laundry area. But for a bigger, second reason. Let's be honest, I just slapped this paint on and it is not the best job in the world. I could have picked a much more elaborate (and expensive) stencil or try to paint it free hand. I could have spent a good hour carefully painting my flowers, I could have gone back over it to perfect it more. But you know it is in my basement and it is good enough.
I wanted to share this because I have some friends who will not do something or keep putting it off out of fear it will not be good enough. Of course we all want to be happy with what we create and if this was in a room were I sit and look at my washer I would have been more careful. But I did not want to make this too big of a deal. So let go of the fear, procrastination, perfectionism and just have fun. Mostly just embrace that fun !!!
