Pinterest Challenge was dreamed up by the geniuses that are Katie and Sherry. This time round it's also being hosted by Ana and Erin.
For a little while now I've been gathering inspiration to do a mini gallery wall for the blank wall in my laundry. I wanted something that was cute, but also practical. I loved the idea of having a pinboard for odd socks, a hook for Cooper's lead, a stain removal chart for easy reference, along with some pretty art.
While I was getting geared up to put the mini gallery together I went back to my Pinterest boards to find the inspiration I had posted.

Here's how my wall came together:
And here's the rundown on what I did...
I did some stamping with yarn wrapped blocks for the Erin's favour bags and I really liked how it turned out, so I decided to do some more stamping. This time I used upholstery fabric and screen printing paint. Then I wrapped the fabric around some cork board and put it into a frame I had spray painted white.
The stain removal guide was really easy. I just printed this free printable onto card stock and popped it into a frame.
The painting of Busselton Jetty was given to me years ago and I already had it framed and ready to go.
The number three was also something I had already done. It was inspired by the Seven that John from YHL did. I posted about it here.
The 'love is everything' picture was really fun and easy to make. I just framed a piece of fabric (cut off a coles bag) and then wrote 'Love is Everything' onto the glass. Simple, but I really love how it turned out.
The spotty painting was inspired by the Eraser Stamping DIY that I pinned. I measured up my little canvas so that my circles would be nice and even, then took a pencil with an eraser that had never been used and stamped out my pattern. Simple, but effective.
And last, but not least I hung up an empty frame and stuck a hook to the wall inside of it. The hook I have in there at the moment is a temporary one, I haven't found the perfect one yet!
I'm really happy with how the laundry is coming together. Next on my list is a new washer and dryer that stack on top of each other so that I can add in some more bench space. That will probably be at least a year away though. Unless my blog suddenly grows into an empire and I get sponsered by LG. Hey, a girl can dream right!!
So there you have it, my project for Pinterest Challenge number 2. I'm heading over to check out what everyone else has done, and if you haven't already I highly recommend you do to. Prepare to be inspired!
