A little camouflage . . .

I’ve always been bothered by the fact that our electrical outlet for the dryer  is above the dryer in plain sight.  My husband did that on purpose when we built the house for easy access.  (Really, what was he thinking?!)

I’ve tried various ways to try to hide it, but here is my latest.   On my visit to IKEA the other day I saw this wire cable “system” that looked like a clothesline.  They had children’s drawings hanging from it over a desk.

It seems like I saw somebody do something like this and a light bulb went off! 
“We” put it up today and I hung some linens on it.   My eyesore is gone at last!

This is the most adorable laundry room i ever saw! I love all your pretty linens hanging up... Maybe if I spruced mine up a bit I'd get more laundry done! Thanks for the inspiration!

Squeeeeeel (of delight)!!! I promise I NEVER do that either... Your laundry room fix is so stinkin' cute! It's all my colors n treasures and I wish I could move right in. Found you through MIFM/Cottage Intincts and am now following. Can't wait to go look around more. Thanks for the fun eye candy!
hugs,
Leslie

I really like your red & yellow cherry laundry room... I just love those colors together!(I have a red & yellow cherry kitchen & laundry room, too). That's a great idea about hiding the outlets... I'll have to try that.
Blessings,
Janet
