Happy Hump Day! This last Friday, we got to work on our laundry room makeover. Something I am uber excited about since I spend a lot of time in there. I need it to function and work. I originally wanted to start in the Spring, but on Friday, the annoying, ugly shelf bothered me so much, I sent a text to Jon saying it needed to go. NOW. And I would be doing it since I couldn't wait two hours for him to get home from work.
So, I grabbed whatever this thing is and went to town.
One hour, 40 curse words and a little blood later, the shelf was no more! I am just glad Jack slept through it all.
A little spackle later, the holes were covered (still need to be sanded, duh)
There has always been a bit of tape goop stuck to our washer and dryer from when they were moved upstairs. It looks grimy, so I took Jack's knife so it wouldn't scrape the appliances (the knife was thrown away) and went to town. I used some disinfectant spray to help lubricate the process.
So, this is what it looked like after the shelf was gone and Jon went to town on the pedestals. I had no clue he was going to do all of this that night, but he went ham on them. Not bologna. Ham.
Here are the pedestals. They were great to have for storage, but take up WAY too much room and we couldn't push the washer and dryer against the wall. So they were more of a pain then useful.mojitos ;-)
Both pedestals off
FUNNY STORY. WE FORGOT TO TURN THE WATER OFF. YEAH YOU ARE READING THIS RIGHT. AND AS WE MOVED THE WASHER, THE HOSE FELL OFF AND WATER SPRAYED EVERYWHERE. EVERYWHERE. LESSON LEARNED. YES CAPITAL LETTERS ARE NECESSARY. SO WAS AN ABUNDANCE OF TOWELS.
Jon at one point asked why one of the pedestals was so heavy....oops....3 full bottles of laundry detergent could do it...#wifefail.
Here is what the room looks like now!
Ahhh, celebratory Buffalo Chicken Calzone.
Here's what we are thinking! A bit different from the original plan, but I think it will all work out just fine.
Up next, paint for the walls, new grout (using grout paint) and hanging the ironing board and iron!
