laundry machine makeover

So, here's the deal.  This is in no way an original idea of mine. In fact, I can honestly say that I never would have thought up this little gem on my own.  Where did I find it? You should be able to answer that for yourself at this point. Pinterest. It is it's own Subject, Predicate, Noun, Verb, Adjective, and Adverb in that sentence.

Here is the link to the original blog that housed the idea I found on Pinterest.

Now, to the project...

I wanted to find a way to "spruce" up my house because I cannot paint the walls yet, but everything seemed so boring.  So, I was clicking around and found this great way to liven up my laundry room, as it is the room through which I exit and enter my house on the daily. 

Here is what I saw every day....


So, I went to Target (which is quickly becoming my favorite store) and found this cute wall decal that was a silhouette of a tree with some birds standing on the branches.  I bought it, and waited a month and a half to try my luck...what? I get busy and certain things fall to the way-side.

When I finally had the time to apply the BEAUTIFUL decal...the final product left me less than enthused.  Observe...


Back to Target I went, and this time I found a more VIBRANT decal.  One that had a lot of colors, including the color that I am going to be painting the laundry room next Summer!

I ran (err...drove) home and waited 2 days (Seriously, I have a problem.), and finally ended up with this colorful and eye-catching final product:

Here's a better angle of it...


And I love it.
