OK, I totally thought I had already taken a BEFORE photo to show you the differences, but for the life of me I can't find it anywhere! It was taken prior to my new computer so maybe it got lost in the shuffle. :(
Oh well, what can I do.
Well here it is. I freshened up my laundry room after I got a couple new additions. A new front loader washer & dryer (well new to me! I can actually Thank my step brother Josh for hooking me up with this find.)
And since I had a front loader now, I needed a pedestal to put them on & I am sorry but I wasn't paying $200 smackers a piece for the store bought kind. So my hubbster helped me out in that department & built me a beautiful,
handcrafted one out of solid wood for around $50.
Let's start this post with the pedestal building:
Some of the lumber.
The top of the frame.
Hubster cutting the top where the washer & dryer will sit.
Hubster done with his part & proud. :) First wood project he actually finished in less than a weekends time! Good Job Honey!!!
Next up prime & paint....my job! :)
OK, the GRAND REVEAL:
Here's the finished pedestal! I LOVE how it turned out! I will actually ENJOY doing laundry!!! If only I had someone to fold & put it all away! (I hate that part!) :)
The other half of the laundry room. See that laundry sink...the top is just the portion that you cut out of the counter top installation when you install a new sink. (*It was left here at our house when we bought it...it was the lovely color of are old counter tops in my kitchen...one day I will get around to showing you are HUGE house remodel) It gives me some extra countertop space when needed.
View from the door.
Those shelves house my canned goods & canning supplies.
Along with some other misc. stuff.
See the Burgundy Red Laundry print...(Ballard House inspired). I got it here for FREE!
You can get it in 8 different colors too! And they even have some for your Bathroom. I just popped it in a previous frame I had & I had more Laundry Room ART!
You can thank Aimee over @ Sprik Space for those awesome prints! THANKS Aimee!
Here is the inspiration for building those pedestals:
Sausha over at Show and Tell had this post & awesome Tutorial which my husband used for most of the build. He tweaked it a bit to fit our needs.
So that is our laundry room in a nutshell. (there is a back half of this room...it is just WAAAAAY TOO cluttered & disorganized to show the world quite yet...oh the shame!)
