It has been almost 3 months since we closed on our suburban farmhouse. A lot was going on the first few months so only recently have I been able to start putting my touch on our new house turning it into a home. I can NOT tell you how happy that has made me! I have missed doing projects so much.
The first room on my list to get started on was our laundry room. Over the holidays the in-loves arrived and helped us remedy the dryer situation. The duct work made the dryer stick out from the wall over a foot and thus made a small space even smaller. After that was figured out we were able to place the washer and dryer in the proper place. The washing machine use to open up into the hallway and would drive me nuts.
I am so happy to have a laundry room that I can actually work in now. We have plans to make this space over starting with the paint.
|The set up is not traditional thus we are brain storming on what we are going to do.|
|On each side of the machines we have a little space.|
|The plan is to build a folding table over the appliances but it will have to stop at the end of the dryer because of the placement of the window.|
|Our oddly placed cabinet which may or may not come down. I would love to take it down and just have open shelving but I am using it for storage of candles and what not.|
|Next challenge is to conceal all the mechanics on the wall. They come up on the wall much further than at the last house. We may build a shelf that comes out and covers it all up but that we can easily remove if need be.|
|I got out my trusty paint decks and end up picking out Sherwin Williams Steamed Milk. The color on the computer looks entirely different from the color card. It looks more flesh toned online.|
|In actuality it is more of a cream color.|
|The new paint color has made a world of difference!|
|It is a nice start on the makeover and I can not wait to get started on the second phase!|
|The lighter paint color just wakes the space up dramatically. They both have the same amount of lighting on and it is like night and day. Now the rest of our house is begging to be painted!|
