I have just finished the very last room left in the house to renovate, the laundry! (oh and extra loo). It actually has been my favourite room to do which seems weird because I totally hate washing, unfortunately it hasn't inspired me to do any yet, I have just been looking at my new laundry a lot cause its so pretty now! I love it to bits.

We had made a snap decision to put a new floor in the family room and kitchen which flows into the laundry so we were pretty much forced to get the laundry done at the same time. I had visions of built in cabinetry and a porcelain sink but with one week to get it all sorted ready for installation that was not going to happen. I ended up buying a new laundry tub almost the same as what was there (I searched high and low for a ready made laundry tub a little different, there was NOTHING!) and did an expensive mixer instead to jazz it up! I made and installed a cupboard at the end of the toilet room which fit like a glove, so lucky! another unit to hold the dirty washing, a drying rack, hooks, a new roman blind and made a cute little curtain to hide some unsightly taps and things! Oh and I painted the toilet with chalkboard paint for a bit of fun!

Before... terrible

and after... pretty

A large Ikea shoe cabinet to hold the dirty laundry...

my handy work, I love a little grey gingham!

below is my view from the kitchen, I am still to fit the sliding door...

I am so glad I have finished the interior of the house... looking forward to a spring/summer of making over the outside now, but until then I might just enjoy what I've done!

  1. Loooove it! How clever to use the shoe cabinet for laundry - never would have thought of that!

  2. What colour are your walls? Would love to see more of your house - it is really beautiful. Keep blogging!

  3. The colour on my walls is dulux 'grey pebble'. A great colour... I tried a lot of grey/browns and this just seemed to go with everything!!
