WARNING: Embarrassing real life pictures ahead!
You guys!!! Holy moly, how has it been so long? I swear the sweet smell of a new baby makes the world spin 15X faster than it did pre-baby. Its just the greatest thing ever and so intoxicating that I don’t want to do anything but hold him and smell his little neck folds.
But good news for everyone who is not within smelling distance of The Bremlin, Court and I managed to pull off a laundry room makeover in the last 2 weeks of December annnnnnd its time to start sharing it!!
I feel like our laundry room is similar to most peoples. Its little. Its dark (no natural light). Its often overrun with crap. Its not something that a lot of people see so it’s down lower on your DIY to do list. Who’s with me?!
Our laundry room is more like a hallway that connects the garage to the house and its functionality isn’t doing anyone ANY favors.
When we moved in we bought a stackable washer and dryer and threw up some cabinets (remember this is pre-blog when DIY was not a thing in my life.) The rationale was that if you stack them, then you’ll have more space to sort laundry and store things. .
SUCH A LIE.
Do you know what it did? It left big non functional spaces on either side of the washer and dryer that basically turned into a giant junk drawer for laundry and other household treasures. It was a MESS.
Also, I’ll be the first to admit that laundry isn’t my best subject as a human being so that could have been part of the problem…
Side note: They were stacked until about 4 minutes before these pictures were taken, Court is REALLY motivated sometimes and forgets about a real before picture.
Making the space more functional was the most important thing on the list. Actually I’d say functionality was tied with making it look awesome, because lets be honest, those cupboards? Bad. That paint? Bad. The linoleum? REALLLLLL bad.
I needed new floors, better storage, a countertop, and some dang personality!
All I can say is that its a good thing that Home Depot has everything I could possibly need to make it happen.
I’m posting the full reveal tomorrow, so make sure you come back! In the meantime, I’ve got to know, what would you change about your laundry room?
