Surprise! I know you weren't expecting another laundry room update for a few
weeks months. However, the tile floor update was actually done awhile ago. But I just got a chance to update you. So you get the privilege of getting two updates in two days! I wish it was that fast in real life.
Anyway back to the update, Tony and I wanted a table that would go over the washer and dryer and then fit the utility sink at the end. Under the sink I wanted a door and drawer to fit the area perfectly. I wanted to utilize as much space as possible for storage.
Tony made the table almost the same way my Dad and I made the vanity up stairs. Here is a picture of the table without the door and drawer.
I started looking for cabinets but I soon realized that it wasn't going to be easy to find something to match the door we would have to build. So my Dad and I decided we would build all of it. Whoa! Build the cabinets? Thankfully we received a Kreg Jig as a wedding present. The Kreg Jig is a pocket-hole jig that allows you to hide your screws.
For the cabinets we made a long box with 4 sections. The sections were not complete dividers but just used for support and a place for the door hinges. We also add one support piece in the middle.
For the doors on the cabinet and the doors below the sink. We just used plywood and then trim to make the shaker style look on the doors.
The small drawer fits perfectly in the space left from the sink. It's fits dryer sheets and other little things.
We used a hinge to keep the door from falling.
The cabinets are awesome! They turned out perfect and fit the style of the house well. Ignore the few decorations we have on top... just trying to clear out some boxes. We will decorate this room soon. We still have a few things to do still before it's finished!
Tony used Photoshop to merge a photo together so you can get an idea of how the room looks now. The angle was hard to get so the photo is a little odd but you get the idea of the room.
And here is the before shot again.
