Laundry Room Decorations (on NO budget)

Ahhh...laundry rooms in AZ...They're not really a "room," but more of a laundry "pass through."
I got a new washer and dryer about a year ago but never completed decorating my laundry pass through. Last week I finally finished it up & I'm loving it.
Best part, I finished decorating with supplies that I already had around my house so completing this room literally cost me NOTHING!!

I got all the large bulky baskets of supplies off the shelf and just put all my laundry supplies I use in cute jars.
 
Love my new "headless lady" (as my boys call her). I found here while out shopping for something else and just had to have her. I also love my little white "finders keepers" jar. I now have a spot to put all those little treasures you find in the
washer after finishing a load of laundry.
 
Have had these old table legs in my home as decoration for years but recently took them down thinking I was done with them.
 I put them up on the shelf & they fit perfectly!!
Found these adorable laundry pictures online and fell in love with them. I printed them out, backed them with scrapbook paper & put them in some dollar store frames that I already had. They are a perfect little filler for this wall.
I've had this old antique washboard for over 15 years. It was just natural wood, old and tattered. I painted it black, decoupaged some scrapbook paper to the metal part and then added the vinyl to the top of it.
Lastly, the baskets I do still use, I spray painted black (they were a natural wood) and put them way up high on top of the cabinet.
Doing laundry in NEVER fun!! But it makes it more bearable when you have a pretty room to do it in.
