The new soaping room/laundry room is still under construction, but a lot of progress has been made so far. It is still a loooong way from being finished, but it's so exciting to see it taking shape! I have lots of fun ideas about the final outcome of this room, and I thought it would be fun to document and share the remodeling process here.
This is what the room looked like before the remodel began:
I know...awful, right? Well, even though there's a lot more to be done, I think the current state of the room is MUCH better than previously. We have walls! And lights! LOTS of light! It's definitely a step in the right direction. Take a look for yourself:
|Drywall is up!|
|Brand new, sparkling clean utility sink.|
|This cluttered area will be gone once|
we install shelves above the washer
and dryer to hold all laundry supplies.
|Lots of new recessed lighting!|
|Yay for storage! This area will have |
shelves, cubbies, and other storage
to hold all of my soaping supplies.
|This nook will be the "computer hub"|
where all invoices and product labels
will be printed.
There is a whole other area of this room that I didn't photograph because it is currently cluttered with hardware supplies and hanging laundry. Also, I apologize for the poor quality of the photos - most were taken from my phone. But at least you get the idea. It's finally starting to take shape! We still need flooring, a drop ceiling, paint, etc. but it's definitely off to a good start.
Oh, and I almost forgot - here are two pictures of the amazing work counter that is going in the room (that is currently - and inconveniently - residing in our entryway). The cabinets will be painted white, and the room is going to be painted an icy blue to pull out the hints of blue from the granite countertop:
That's it for now! I'll be posting updates and pictures of this room as more progress is made, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, I'm once again off to the kitchen....not to cook, but to create some more fabulous products! :)
