Laundry room re-do


We never had a formal laundry room. All we had was a laundry "space." My husband, who's had no carpentry experience, decided to extend a wall, add a pocket door, and a few other things. We have really enjoyed this new room. Project completed in 2008.
Once painted a bright yellow, this color didn't really help to "sunny-up" a space that actually needed a whole lot more.
My husband installing a pocket door.
I wanted the look of built ins, so my husband and dad took stock laminate and glued it to plywood. Then my husband covered the back wall with bead board to make a "faux" wall to cover the hook ups. I have a nice space to fold clothes.
I took a 3 unit hamper from Decorators' Collection and repurposed it here. We took a stock countertop and cut part of it away to fit the hampers. We store shoes underneath.
Drip bar installed above stainless steel laundry sink.
I think everyone has seen this idea from a specific catalog. I paid less than a dollar a piece on clearance and then painted them black.
A few accessories and voila!
Finished project. :)
