Not all the following photos are pretty!
just consider these the before photos
with the afters to come soon!
Our goal this week is to redo the laundry room.
Why you ask?
Have you ever read the children's book
"If You Give A Mouse A Cookie"?
This project all started with a needed paint job.
We still have builders grade flat in this room.
If you look around the bottom 1/4 of the room
you will notice a beautiful darker brown shade.
No, this is not a painting effect, this is an Abby effect!
This is Abby!
( 150lbs of pure love)
Well painting the room is no biggie,
We left our dear on the 4th of July with a dog/house sitter
and she must have freaked
because she did this...
now we must paint the walls and fix the floor.
She also did this...
we should also replace the door,
However, given that we have several trips planned this year
we will leave the door as is and just paint it instead!
So our list now includes:
remove washer and dryer to dining room
take off base boards
pull up old flooring
add bead board (or something like it) to walls
install backer board for tile
reinstall washer and dryer
do the laundry
(I did say it is a circular project!)
We installed cabinets when we built the house.
They offer alot of room for storage,
so they will be staying.
I've also found several wicker baskets
to store cleaning and dog supplies.
These will stay.
We hope this finish this project this week,
during Wayne's vacation.
(Yes, I have the best husband in the world!)
Stay tuned for the after photos...
They've got to be an improvement over the befores!
Thank you so much to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch!
