Sneaky know you want to look!

Just a little sneak peek of my laundry room.

Oh, F.Y.I., I know that my "Oxiclean" and "Clothespins" tags are on the wrong jars...I already fixed them thank you very much :)

The cutest little things ever! Just got some wooden tags (at Hobby Lobby - $.99 for a pack of 4), printed off the words on scrapbook paper, Modge Podged those puppies on there, inked the edges, put another layer of MP, drilled holes in them, and ran twine through and around the jars.

I think I will tag everything I can find!

Yes, quite shiny aren't they...yeah, still debating on these things. Way better than before, but just a little too...shiny. They are actually buring my retinas as we speak. Yikes! Maybe a coat of KILZ and some cream paint will help. Suggestions anyone? Look away, look away before it's too late!

3 brilliant things my peeps said about this:

I LOVEEEEE the tag idea! Can I steal that, please?!?

But, can someone come up with a good idea for the liquid soap? We have hard water and have to use the liquid kind. I'd love to find a great way to spruce it up, though!

OK, that is the cutest thing I have ever seen. I can't wait to see it all! Now i want to redo my laundry area {closet}. Way.too.cute.

Oh I love your colors! I also really like how you are separating your clothes! Oh gosh, I wish I had a laundry basket like that! :o)
For the shine, I don't think it looks bad. But if you want a little less, can you apply a matte coat? I am horrible with painting advise, so careful how much you take. :o)
