Life as a Thrifter – Fab Laundry Guest Post

Thrilled to have Holly from Life as a Thrifter guest posting today.  I knew she was my long lost thrifting sista when she re-used an old crib spring just like I did!

So … here’s Holly!

Hello! My name is Holly Marsh, and I blog over at Life as a Thrifter! I’m super excited to be guest posting here today! My blog is all about repurposing thrifty finds, and I’m thrilled to be sharing just that!
Recently, I made a few changes in our lifeless laundry room. It sat and sat with bare walls and boring appearance…until I simply couldn’t stand it any longer. Here are a few things I did…
“New” light fixture: old gas station light, $10 from eBay.
“Laundry” sign: $6 from Ross Dress for Less
Old wash board: $15 from flea market
Old pant hangers: $.25 a piece from thrift store
Mod Podged pictures on canvas: see tutorial here
“WASH” letters: $2.50 a piece from Hobby Lobby


Old fan belt rack: $20 from flea market
Old crib frame: $7 from thrift store


Wall color- Sherwin Williams: Marquis Orange
Thanks, Kelly for allowing me to share today!

    A soul sister in the crib picture hanging project! Love this guest post. Holly is amazing and super talented. Awesome job on the laundry room and that color……I need a little bit of that at 7:00 in the am to get my day started.


  2. Hi Holly
    I love what you did in your laundry room. It gave me some inspiration!
    Mine is in dire need of an uplift…I am thrifter too so..I will hopefully be able
    to use some “finds” and give it a new look…Happy days to you and thank you!!
