Hey, remember that time I had to fight the raging elements, and slay/outmanoeuvre spiders in order to do a load of laundry? Oh wait....that was
Well, I would have done more laundry...but every time I went to the laundry room, it felt a lot like this..
Look out! Giant Spider! Run! Don't do laundry!
Okay....so maybe it wasn't that bad...but here is where I had to do the laundry...
Would you like a close up?
You wouldn't want to do laundry there either, right? Did I mention that it was in a small room outside of the house? Yeah..not only do you have to battle housewife eating spiders, you also have to trudge through rain and sleet and snow to get there.
Luckily, I married this guy.....
When the washer and dryer were moved inside (28th May 2013....do you think I should get a plaque made?), I was so happy, I thought I could cry. My wonderful hubby has done a total renovation on this room, and I'm super proud of him. Someone get that man a beer!
Were you hoping for a before and after picture? Well...it just so happens that I have a couple on hand...
To better utilize the space in the downstairs bathroom/entryway, Jim knocked out a wall which split the space vertically causing a severe waste of space. Then, he built a new wall which runs more horizontally, and re-did the bathroom.
Here's another before and after showing the downstairs bathroom as it was, and the way the space is now.
No before and after post would be complete without closeups of the details....
I scored 5 fishbowl style light shades for £3.50, because they were part of a chandelier with faulty electrics..... we (Jim) ghetto rigged two of them for the utility room!
DIY Laundry Room Art ? Here it is hanging up....with a snazzy new mirror! (Hands up if you can say "Ikea"...)
There are a few things (like that curtain and adding some hooks/ shelving) that still need to be addressed. But over all, we are DONE with this room for now!
Have you done any major renovations in your home recently? Do your husbands also slay giant, wife-eating spiders armed only with screwdrivers, and tape measures?
