Laundry Room Gets Spruced up With Some Paint and Built Ins!
Click here to check out the laundry room now! I have a scratch and dent certified new LG washer/dryer combo, just in case you were wondering why there was only one machine that looks like a washing machine in the picture :) I love my washer/dryer combo so far and I, personally, would never go back to two machines. Here's how it looked when I got started:
This is after I installed and then gave the upper cabinets a face life. After that there was a whole lot of ugly going on.
The construction was just a frame of 2x4s the depth and width of the counter top built right around the washer/dryer combo.
I used scrap 1x4s for the shelf supports and carefully used screws on them as well... I say carefully because 1x4s split very easily. From there I went hunting for shelf material and found I had a 1x10 left over from other shelf projects.
From there I just needed lots of white paint. I went ahead and hit the floors with one coat as well because they just looked dirty before (though they weren't) I think the whole room/closet came together nice! Having the metal counter top now for folding is just awesome and the three deep shelves as well as the upper cabinets took care of all of my storage needs!

Jul3347626, her machine is both washer and dryer in one unit! She talks about it the description of the laundry area makeover. I've read about others having them but don't really understand how one machine does both.... wouldn't it be nice to only have one laundry machine?! I searched a little for them and found they are quite expensive.
