When we moved into this house we purchased a new washer and dryer. The washer is a front loader so I am fortunate that both machines have doors that open out, because I am not sure there is enough room for them to open up. Even with my petite stature, I constantly hit my head on the ceiling in that room. I am for ever bumping one part of me or another and find myself sitting on the floor doing laundry to avoid another lump on my head.
I have toyed with the idea of putting something on the ceiling to catch my eye when I am in there. Something that screams, "WATCH YOUR HEAD LADY!" I was never sure what to put in there that wouldn't hang down and smack me in the face. Pictures were out of the question. I thought about a quilt, at least that would be softer, but it sags in the middle and makes the space seem even more closed in. I contemplated painting the ceiling a different color but couldn't decide what. John and Mark joked that they were going to put a big sign on the laundry room door that read...
HARD HAT AREA
But I knew that wouldn't work either, I look terrible in hard hats. I thought about making a mural or painting a design on the ceiling; but since we move frequently I always have to keep resale in the back of my mind when decorating. Hmm.
Last week I ran into Hobby Lobby to pick up some art paper, and since I can never just run through Hobby Lobby and pick up one thing, I started to browse. I stumbled upon the the vinyl lettering for walls. eureka! That is just what I need. I picked up some lettering that I thought was cute and pretty and not insanely big. It reads "Family where life begins and love never ends." How touching. Only I tweaked it just a little bit to read something more apropos of its location not to mention, my whit and humor. And it now reads.
