Four Ideas For Laundry Room Art

Alison Sherrow

The laundry is one of the most used rooms in a home, where time is spent cleaning, drying and folding clothes, so why shouldn't it be a pretty space?   It's not the most enjoyable job for most, but let's face it.  Laundry is not going to go away.  To help make it as pleasant as possible, I set out to create some photography art prints specifically for a rustic, country farmhouse style laundry room wall!  

1.  Crisply Pressed

The first photograph is titled 'Crisply Pressed'.  It is one of my personal favorites, and it is a popular image in my print shop.  This rustic artwork features an antique, 17th century sad iron.  The irons were made from solid slabs of cast iron, to be heated in a fire or on a stove.  While ironing may make one feel sad, that is not where the name is derived from!  Rather, it is from the Middle English "sad" meaning "solid", which was used in modern English through the 1800's.

2. Marching Clothespins

After I arranged the vintage clothespins for this photograph, I realized that they resembled tiny wooden marching soldiers; instantly the title for my second laundry themed photograph, 'Marching Clothespins' was born!  The black frame in this example really makes the print pop.

3. Fresh Linen

I grew up in the rural countryside and have vivid memories of my mother hanging the bed linens outside to dry on laundry day during the warm summer months. My mother would pluck the clothespins from the line and place the linens into a basket much like this one. Crawling into bed at night with clover infused sheets was heaven.  I wonder if that is where the phrase 'sweet dreams' comes from...?        'Fresh Linen' is photograph number three for laundry wall art consideration.

4. A School Of Clothespins

My fourth photograph reminded me of a school of swimming fish, hence the title   'A School Of Clothespins'.  Another rustic choice for a farmhouse style laundry room.

All four of the matching fine art photographs have been created in neutral gray and beige colors, and work well together as a set.  Prints of each image are sold separately, in a wide range of sizes, beginning with an 8x10" print for $28.00 up to a 30x40" priced at $190.00.
