We did it!
The laundry room is complete, at last!
I am so happy to say it doesn't look like this anymore!
My "laundry" list included:
Finish Laundry..... Done
Remove Washer and Dryer to Dining Room
Take off Base Boards
Pull up old flooring...
Done! (Remember this?)
Install backer board..
Add Wall Treatment...
We also added a project...
replace our utilitarian laundry sink for
something slightly more dressy.
We found a lower cabinet base at a local
Pease Warehouse Store for $10.
It was the right size,
however not the prettiest of cabinets.
We looked for new doors to replace the
original 4 inch openings and found a whole
cabinet facing that fit perfectly on the this little guy!
We only spent $20 for the new front!
Old facing with small opening.
We removed the old front and glued on the new one!
(see our little helper?)
We ended up having to purchase a larger sink that perfectly
fit in the base cabinet.
After a little sanding...
and 4 coats of paint..
Reinstall Washer and Dryer...
A Little paint is all it took...
Caribou looks guilty, even though he was not
the offending party!
We are so happy with our final result!
So the only thing left on my list was...
We estimated that we spent about $350 for the entire project.
paint (had left over from other projects)
new laundry tub
new piping for sink.
Wayne and I supplied the labor!
I am still looking for two small metal
Oscar the Grouch type garbage cans,
one for dog food and one for trash!
I am linking this to Metamorphosis Monday at
to Make it Monday at
So, was it worth Wayne's week off?
Now we must both get back to work!
