lovely laundry rooms {home inspiration}

laundry room inspiration

Let’s talk laundry rooms. A while ago, I shared a quick laundry room makeover with my hexagon washer and dryer, as well as a lost & found laundry room sign, and I’m starting to feel the need to give the room another quick refresh. What better way to get inspired than with some lovely laundry room? Today, I’m sharing some favorite laundry room images!

diy bath salts {a tutorial}

diy bath salts 1
First, a confession: this is the first time I’ve made my own bath salts. I don’t know why, but it always seemed complicated and time-consuming, neither of which it was, by the way. This recipe is so easy to customize as well, change out the scents, or add in some color if you’d like, for a completely custom creation! Plus, what a great gift for friends, teachers, neighbors, or even yourself (I won’t tell!) Here’s the how-to so you can make your own bath salts…

Materials:

  • 2 Cups Epsom Salt
  • 3 Tbsp. Baking Soda
  • Essential Oils (approximately 35 drops)
  • Clear Containers (this recipe fills 3 small jars)
  • Embellishments for Packaging
  • Mod Podge Matte

Step 1: Add your epsom salt and baking soda to a bowl, mixing well.

Step 2: Add in your essential oils. I chose Wild Orange (20 drops) and Peppermint (15 drops). Mix well. If you are adding coloring, this would be the time to add them into your mixture.

Step 3: Spoon your mixture into your containers (see how easy that was?!) and embellish to your heart’s content. I used a bit of washi tape and stamps to decorate wooden spoons, and mod podged a piece of marbled paper to the top of each lid.
