… I am back with the laundry room update. This week I don’t think you will see the differences. Although they are there… They were extremely time-consuming on our very busy weekend. So we are behind schedule (surprise) but maybe with some hard work and the three-day weekend we can catch up… a bit?
So originally week two was supposed to be …
- grout the tile
- Build cleaning cabinet storage
- Build folding station
Well we completed 2 out of 3. Not terrible right?
We grouted…. and we bought the broom/vacuüm closet. However, I need to paint this and I want to add some detail to the door so it doesn’t look so… cheap. so that is only halfway done. We need to still build the folding table… that we havent even began thinking about.
We did buy a drying rack just a simple pop up one. Which was a necessity especially since we cloth diaper. We also finished painting the side of the wall cabinets.
So back to the checklist
Paint these cabinets a pale blue Paint walls white Buy tile for between cabinets and washer and dryer Put in tile (AHH we have never done this! Kind of nervous!) Grout tile Build a large cabinet to house our vacuums, mops, and all other cleaning supplies
- Add beadboard to broom closet
- Barn door and get rid of swinging door
- Find a new option for that ugly wash bin (still looking)
- Add a small folding table with basket storage below.
Install drying rack
- Purchase full-sized ironing board
So here is how she is looking today… Nothing visually all that new
Here is the plans for next week
- add beadboard and paint broom closet
- build folding table
- order barn door hardware
- buy new sink for laundry room
- paint sink/folding table/broom closet
So there is a lot on our plates for this week. I am hoping we can get this done though. Our hallway area is a disaster during this project. That is always the worst thing about these projects. Your house seems to fall apart around it. Things will be less stressful once this is done and ready to be used.
Luckily its a three day weekend so we have an extra day to work on this! Wish us luck!
