The Laundry Room

So here it is, a few months ago. Exposed pipes, cement floor, old light fixture, oh and in case you're wondering what that line under the dryer hook-up...that's where the dry wall ends. That white stuff that you see on the bottom half is in fact styrofoam the previous tenants used for better insulation.

My dad ripped out several built in shelves we didn't want, and added actual walls, including a protruding wall above the washer and dryer, covering up all the pipes. My brother Jared added a gas line to accommodate the gas (not electric) dryer we now have.

Seth laid the tile, grout and sealer. He also put in the new base board (as well as painted most of it), after ripping out the old stuff.

All I had to do was paint the walls this lovely blue Carl picked out. Isn't it nice?

Lastly, Seth brought in and hooked up these beautiful Maytag front load washer and dryer my parents so kindly handed down to us. Aren't parents great?

So there you have it, one of woman's very best friends: the laundry room. A huge thank you to Dad, Jared and Seth for putting in lots of time and energy so I can do laundry at home at any time of day. Everything looks so nice. I've been taking laundry to my parents house for the last 10 months, and though I'll now have to buy my own soap, I'm so very excited for this new addition to our home.
