Remodeling Laundry Room

Laundry Room : Before Photo

For those of you who don't know it already, our washer had recently been leaking tremendously after a load of wash.  My husband and father-in-law have both been trying to figure out why it has been doing that, so we called the Appliance guy and the Sewer company.  The Sewer Company flushed out the pipes, and the Appliance guys said there was nothing that he saw that was wrong with it.  So in the end, we just finally decided it was probably time for a new washer (and dryer).

Now, as frugal as we are, my husband and I though about finding one for cheap on Craigslist or another website that sells them for cheap.  But we decided to keep up with the times and splurge on a brand new washer and dryer.  We figured that it would be best to recycle (or give it back to our landlord/father-in-law) the old ones, and than use an old dryer with a new washer.  We have some money saved for a rainy day - so what better way to use that than on a rainy washer! 

So here are some update photos on what we did with our laundry room:

First we took the old washer and dryer out.  Found out that there was still water under our old vinyl floor, so we tore all that out.  We put a heater in there to get the actual floor completely dry.  Then my boys and I went to Home Depot to buy some new vinyl floor.

We repainted the walls from white to a sort of khaki color, and we repainted the cabinets a fresh white, and painted the trim from a wood color to white.  

Our new vinyl floor that my brother-in-law installed!  It looks 10 times better already!

So now I will have you anxiously awaiting the final result with the new washer and dryer and a complete laundry room!  More to come...
