I live in an 1880 farmhouse in Virginia. My laundry "room" is an addition that was thought of after the invention of electricity, but not much. This room appeals to me as a great way to update my laundry room and yet have it keep the character of the house. The walls are already beaded, so it would not take much to redo.
As a fiber artists this is very appealing, both because it is simple and because the design is so pure and clean. Love it.
