Laundry Closet Revamp

A couple of weeks ago the washing machine decided to take its last spin... So, it was time to purchase a new one.  Once the new one arrived, along with the new dryer, it was evident it was also time for a new curtain to hide those ugly hoses and plugs. 

Here are some before pics, with the new washer and dryer, and old curtains (see those ugly hoses, and plugs showing under the curtains):

I also decided to change out the panel hiding all my junk to match the material I bought to make the new curtain.  I changed out a couple of the decorations that were in there as well. 

I wanted to add another sign, and went to Pinterest for some inspiration.  Once I choose a saying, I typed it out and printed on some scrapbook paper, and then framed it. 

I added some ribbon to the store bought panel for a little embellishment.  Baby is helping out, or should I say supervising the project....  I sewed a simple curtain, added a ruffle at the bottom, and trimmed it out with some coordinating ribbon.

The finished product..

A friend gave me that cute Lenox, Butler's Pantry Sugar Bowl, and I decided to incorporate it in the project.  I thought it would be perfect to collect loose change left in pockets, or tips as I call them. 

I am linking up with Between Naps on the Porch.  Thank you for stopping by and checking out my project. Have a great week.
