I've since come to realize that quick home renovation projects are not our strong suit... this laundry room update was started over a year ago. But it is finished! I can't even find, nor do I want to find, a "before" picture. So here are the "afters.
We installed cabinets and shelfs to provide storage and it has been awesome to have it. This room looks ten times bigger with wall to wall built ins.
Kanyon built this platform for us to put shoes under and a bar that was much prettier than the one we had before.
Well, there ya go! (I still hate doing laundry, though. Bummer.)
