January is DIY Month & A GeorgiaPeachez GIVEAWAY!

It's official, it's DIY month around Chez GeorgiaPeachez.  I am on a roll peeps, and I don't think you can stop me!  Except for work, damn it.  I just got jobs for next week that have me booked up every day! 

The paint brush is smokin' and I've got to run to the hardware store for more drywall anchors!

It all started with a little rearrangement of my kitchen wall decor.

Then I found the most awesome Christopher Lowell desk and chair on Craig's List for a song.  I LUV Craig's List.

That desk was all I needed to jump start the laundry room remodel.  I have an awesome laundry room.  It's the size of a small bedroom, sunny and bright.  It even has crown molding!  Whoever built my house had a crown molding fetish.  This house is loaded, but that's another story for another day.

Here is the before.

Quite the catch all room.  There is a closet too with the washer and dryer.

I'm almost done with the remodel, but here is a sneak peak at one corner.

It's going to be a great reveal!

Remember the apron I was working on?  I got the pattern here.

I've made one apron from this pattern using vintage feedsacks and I added a vintage pot holder as a pocket on the front.

  1. I am new to this whole blog-thing, and am preparing to set up my own. One of the best parts of my day now is getting up and looking at a few blogs (yours now on the list) that brighten my whole morning and inspire me with the creativity I see!
    Thank you!1

  2. I too am new to the blog-world and do not have one to call my own. I found your blog with through Pioneer Woman or Mary Kay Andrews (don’t remember which) and I believe you and I were separated at birth! You could at least be my sister (I am a complete opposite of my biological sister). I am just wondering why the name GeorgiaPeachez (maybe you say somewhere and I just haven’t read it). Anyway, love your blog and most of all your style! Oh, and I am a Georgia resident and a Georgia Peach!

  12. What a beautiful apron. I have been collecting vintage aprons for a couple of years and even wear a few of my grandmothers handmade aprons when cooking. And lucky you to have such a huge laundry room. All I have is a closet holding the washer and dryer by the back door. It’s really looking cute.

  26. Suzy, I love you painted “around” things on your wall. This is so me – too excited to see how things will look! I believe the most fun comes from parting with something that you love yourself to someone who loves it even more. That is a joy high! I know you must feel this way about this apron. Just the peek you gave put me over the top! I can picture you now in your craft space – Yeah! Elizabeth
