Laundry Room GIVEAWAY!


No, I’m not giving away my laundry room, but I do have  a wonderful treat for you that I used in my laundry room!
But first I’d like to say thank you to all you wonderful people for your sweet comments on my Laundry room makeover…what a great group of gals you are!  Your comments were overwhelmingly sweet!

I can’t wait to show you some  more of the details of the laundry room in later posts, but this little detail has to be first!  See this….


Laundry room makeover
I bought these from a very sweet lady on Ebay named Lisa and she has agreed to give some to YOU!  (U.S. residents only please)You might think, eh I don’t really need any knobs (or maybe you do, cause they’re gorgeous!), but I didn’t use these as knobs, so keep reading!  I initially purchased them for my cabinets, but when they arrived at my house, I knew they needed to become more than just a cabinet knob, these things are beautiful!   Lisa hand makes these knobs with her own digitally printed papers and they are gorgeous! (and she’s talented!)  Here’s what  I did with them!
How to decorate a laundry room

I turned them into knobs/hooks for my laundry room wall!  They are 2” across, so plenty big enough to use as hooks!
This is how they come when they arrive at your house.  They have a screw with them if you want to use them as knobs, but I did a little altering to turn them into hooks!

I bought a package of Dowel screws….. (you get three in a pack for a $1.18 at Lowes)
Here’s what dowel screws looks like ..…as you can see, it has screws on both ends.

I just screwed one side into the knob like this………

Then used pliers to make it screw all the way in on the one side. (notice I’m using pliers in the middle so as not to mess up the threads on the piece)

Those little screws can turn any wood knob into a hook in an instant..see presto chango!…..

Next I just pre-drilled a whole in the board and batten….

and just screwed in my knob/hook!

Lisa has generously offered to give one of my readers three of these damask knobs! (that’s the number I used in my laundry room below…can’t see the last one for the washer.)

Love your Laundry Room! And I would love to win these knobs - this is what my daughter did Elyssa's nursery in - the toile. She used black and purple and it turned out precious! Thanks for sharing!

Oops, I meant to say damask instead of toile!! I did go to the website and I love the damask light switch covers - if I win, I'll have to order one of these for the nursery - or I might just have to order anyway! :)

Mrs. Jones from the Circus said...

Your laundry room is certainly divine! I loved watching you unveil tiny little details and then the whole room...very well done.

I would love to win these knobs! We sold our house and are living in a temporary rental as we shop for a new home...let me just say the old girl needs some pizazz!!!

I would be delighted to win; thanks for a great giveaway! I'm off to visit Lisa @ ebay.

Jackie said...

hmmm....hard to choose but I like the damask too!

Mrs. Jones from the Circus said...

Oh man! I think it's safe to say that if the knob is black and white; I really like it! I really loved the toile and the paisley floral jacquard.

Wow! I am already having visions of hanging them on my walls... (in my bathroom).

Connie Sikora said...

Love your laundry room! gives me some great ideas to use in my own. Always nice to see ideas for small spaces!!

Connie Sikora said...

Oh forgot, I love the black and white damask and the black and white floral and adding the switch plated that match...perfection!

Marilyn said...

Neat knobs! Will go take a look. Never saw those funny screws before, but now I'll be looking for some to put in my toolbox! ♥♫

Marilyn said...

I like the pink polka dot with a rose in the middle, and a few others, too. Lots of cute ones!

Jenny said...

I love the knobs & already have an idea of where to use them!

Jenny said...

I really like the knob you chose best but close behind is the black & white toile as well as the black & white floral paisley Jacquard damask. Really cute patterns that you can't buy in the stores.

imsteelefullofscrap said...

The knobs are beautiful but your laundry room is the most gorgeous laundry room I have ever seen!!!! I would want to do laundry all the time if mine looked like that instead of I have a basement with cement walls too look at!!!

faithplusnothing said...

Great looking room!

Jen @ The Decor Scene said...

Found your blog from Addicted2Decorating. I love the way your laundry room turned out. We are remodeling our laundry room too and I did a similar colors. These knobs would go great in our laundry room. Can't wait to check out the rest of your blog. Hope you will stop by my blog and say Hi. :) Have a great day!!!

Bloomin Rose said...

Your laundry room is to die for. I love those knobs. They would be the perfect addition to the "buffet" redo I am planning (I have that same pattern on a stencil in my kitchen).

Peggy said...

Missy,
It was so nice meeting you and thank you for your kind words! You have no idea how much they meant to me.

I LOVE these knobs but then I have a "thing" for knobs, hooks, and drawer pulls, ha ha! I can hardly wait to start on our laundry hall (or utili-corridor as I so fondly call it!) once the kitchen is done (another exciting project for me!)

Have a great day!

Peggy said...

I am in LOVE with the Black and White tree silhouette "2 dresser knob. I can clearly envision them holding scarves and such!

Amber said...

I so love you! I showed my husband your laundry room...it is my dream room. I love her knobs but my favorite by far are the ones you are giving away!

Your laundry room is amazing. I love everything you did. The damask knobs for hooks are such a nice touch. My grandaughters nursery is done in pale aqua & black & white damask. I think that we could do something really cute for her nursery with those knobs. What a nice giveaway!!! Debbie

Love your new laundry room! Wondering what the dimensions of the room are? I think my room might just work, and it really needs it, for some reason that door is the one people use to enter my house! Eeeek! Would love to win the knobs!
