Laundry Room Decoration


Define the space

Perhaps you received the same Ballard Designs catalog I did last week?

When I saw this item, I knew I could work up a “version” of it myself, at a fraction of the $129 price tag.

I really liked the idea of this piece… the simplicity of it. I also thought the idea would work well in a bathroom. Personally, I think the decor of these spaces – laundry rooms & bathrooms – should be a little more utilitarian than anything else.

So, you guessed it, it’s another freebie!

I found my definitions at MSN Encarta & Merriam-Webster, just like they did. Each file is a PDF, with the image itself sized to 8”x10”. (Last time I checked, 8”x10” frames were a lot less than $129, plus my laundry room and guest bath are small, so Ballard’s 24” square print wouldn’t work for me.)

To download the file(s) of your choice, just click on the links below and you’ll be directed to their 4shared locations. Then, just print on your own color printer and trim to size (8”x10”), or upload it to a place like FedEx Office. Find an inexpensive frame, and voila! You’ve got yourself a new piece of “art” for likely 90% less than what Ballard Designs is charging.

I hope this makes a nice, simple addition to your space!
