Laundry Room is Coming Together!

I think that I may be done with the laundry room! (At least for now!) I found this awesome vinyl wall art on Amazon for $3.99! And I had an Amazon gift credit so it was fa-ree! I have seen this same vinyl on other websites for up to $30!
 I really think it adds so much to the room! I have been told that I have hit my limit for vinyl in the house though. :( I guess there is such thing as too much of a good thing. But this one is perfect for our room.
 Here is the hanger art in its original place. I hung it with command strips since that wall is cinder block and really hard to drill/nail into. I thought this was a great solution.
 ...until the command strips didn't stick to the textured walls!
 I have had this ball jar forever. I mean literally, I saved money for prom in it! And I wanted to use it in the laundry room. So I took some faux callas that look super real from my cousin's wedding and put them in the jar. This is where it started out.

 Then it moved to the top of the dryer to add a little class.
 I really loved it there. But then I remembered the need to pile clothes on top of the dryer when taking them out of the washer.
 So I moved it over to the ill-fated canvas hanging area. Risky business I tell you.
 But it looks so good there!
I know.....you are thinking that the picture is going to fall down and break my jar. That was not the case! I happened to be in the room when the picture fell and I caught it before any harm was done! Actually though, I really like it better just leaning up against the wall. It brings everything down to one level but still has dimension.
My poor jar did, however, plummet to its death. I hung one too many shirts on the poorly anchored shelf and down it went. My beautiful jar shattered to a million pieces all over the ceramic tile floor. :( Sad day in my life! Luckily, I had a small makeshift jar that will do for now. But I will replaced my Ball jar! I just have to find another one that is that big and lovely. Thus, another exhibit of my glass breaking skills. I will have to compile a list someday. Maybe I should start photographing this phenomenon...
