Purse peg-board/shelf: already had it, spray-painted it black. Vintage metal frame from Goodwill: $1.75, spray-painted pink. For the insert, I glued a peony cut out of a greeting card onto pink-polka-dot fabric and added black ribbon and a sweet little vintage button I found in my "button jar". This "frame" is actually an antique black outlet plate (I got it thrown in for free at some yard sale, never quite knowing what in the world I would do with it, since it didn't fit any of our outlets) that I spray-painted pink. Then I just cut paper to the right size and glued it on, next adding some scrapbooking stickers and colored pencil embellishments.
Plastic frame from Goodwill: 75 cents, spray-painted pink. For the insert I googled "vintage laundry" and found this image, printed it out, colored in the washing machine, glued it over some scrapbooking paper and the same black ribbon, and added a sparkly button as the finishing touch.
Glass pitcher for vase: $5 at Ross. Peonies: $2 a bunch at Michael's. I already had the glass gems sitting in a drawer. Vintage white vase: a house-warming gift from my dear sis-in-law way back when we moved into our second tiny apartment! It was just waiting for the perfect home, and it looks so charming with a touch of ribbon and vintage button to dress it up. Pink beaded garland: $9 in the wedding section at Michael's.
Black polka-dot ironing board cover: $20 on eBay. How cute is that?? Glass jar in which to keep my laundry detergent: already had it, it just needed a good use-- and boy does it work perfectly for this. Blue flowered wastebasket (for all that pesky dryer lint): $6 at Ross. Box: I already had this, but it was a rather ugly green and cream with huge roses on it. So, I spray-painted it pink, glued on the same black ribbon used other places, and adorned it with some pretty vintage buttons. And look, it was made to serve a purpose too:
It holds my dryer sheets perfectly! So much prettier than that ugly orange dryer sheet box sitting around.
Shutter "wall hooks": hand-me-down decor from a friend, spray-painted them black. I wanted a place to hang my "errand list" so I could grab it on my way out. This adorable notepad was a birthday gift from a friend.
