Laundry Room Demo - The Big Reveal

The big Laundry Room Reveal is here! I know you have stuck with me through the day by day progress of the laundry room and now I get to show you the final result. What started out as a whole lot of "I wishes" turned into reality with the help of a fabulous contractor. We have been using our new appliances for a couple of weeks and I have almost forgotten what it was like before - but not quite.

Here's a quick recap of our little laundry room transformation:
  • On Day 1 they demoed the area and moved all of the plumbing to gain our extra 6 inches of space.
  • On Day 2 they built the new wall and began drywalling the area.
  • On Day 3 they finished putting up the drywall, cut and laid out the tiles, installed the can lights, and assembled the cabinets.
  • On Days 4-5 the tiles were grouted, the drywall finished drying, the walls were primed/painted, cabinets were installed along with the filler, and last but not least the new washer and dryer were installed.
  • And last but not least bead board was just added to hide the ugly 220 volt outlet and some of the plumbing with a little access panel.
And with that - here's our new laundry room!

Concealing all of that necessary but unattractive stuff!

P.S. Sorry the pictures are a bit dark.....the bead board went up today and I couldn't wait a second longer to share the complete project with you. I hope you forgive me and have enjoyed the process as much as we have. With that I am off to find something to wash.....
