I like stacks of clean towels and neatly folded shirts.
I know, But I have never really had a place to do laundry.
Well, that is no longer the case.
We are so...close to being completely done with this room...It makes me giddy!
Yes, pure giddiness feels me each and every time I come in our back door...
Stand here and fold clothes!
I was going to wait until our cabinet guy got my other door to me to paint...
But I was too excited!
I wanted to show you a little more of my first downstairs room to be completed...almost!
We decided not to purchase a new washer or dryer for a little while longer and brought the stacking unit in from the cottage.
I have looked and looked at new appliances and I still can't decide so...this will work until I know for sure!
My hubby built the shelf across the top so that I had a place to hang my things as they come out of the dryer or if I just want them to air dry!
The wash stand was constructed mainly from recycled lumber. Mostly things we had leftover from some of the other projects we have going on.
All of the counter-tops...were recycled too!
They were once in my kitchen.
When the time came to get more...they no longer made this color so...we cut off the back splash of our old ones and ...
Brand new wash stand...sink area
And folding table!
Another piece of our counter-top was used for the desk area!
All of the post legs...my hubby actually lathed himself!
This is the frame that hung in the cottage during the Christmas season. you might remember I was unsure if I should paint it or not.
Do you like it's new home?
Once we decided to move back here from the cottage...everything came with us and is now being reused in other areas!
And some of my things that had been stored were finally used again!
I have always loved to garden and so I decided to use that as the central theme ...
Throughout my whole house!
I have done it before and loved it!
I knew I would love it again!
I thought I would give you a quick peak at Tinker!
This is from my window that overlooks the garden!
And this...is the first glimpse of our brand new hallway!
This house never had halls before!
Hubby began working on the hallway this past month.
He is almost finished with the new podiums and transoms.
He calls them "faux-diums"
It's now my turn...to prime and paint!
We will order the glass inserts in a few weeks. Once I decide if I want clear or some texture/
What would you do?
I have time...he has a ways to go!
I also need to decide if I like the ball chandy or if I use it someplace else!
I will show you more and maybe even style it better for the next group of pictures I take.
In the meantime....
What do you think so far?
Wash Day will never be the same!
