I worked with Electrolux who upped the style and the functionality of the a-frame laundry room and I’m excited to share a peek into the work-in-progress as well as the summer wardrobe staples they help me care for.I’m feeling all grown up, as this is the first washer and dryer I have ever picked out myself. The first house my husband and I bought was a townhouse and it came with a small stacked washer-and-dryer-in-one type unit and then our current house also came with machines. They are old and not great, but they still work so we are using those until they quit on us.
Now, it’s official. I’m an adult and I’m totally nerding out over laundry. I never knew what it was like to have new, powerful, but gentle at the same time, machines to care for my clothes. I’ve already put them to good use this summer since I have the habit of wearing white… a lot. For example, while working on renovations (I wallpapered the room and put together the cabinets in this dress, pure genius) and even while I have a very messy toddler (food actually going in his mouth is sometimes a game of chance) so I have put the “most effective stain removal” claim to the test and I have to say the washer really does get rid of the spills and stains from my creative mama messy life.Thankfully now with all the time we are spending at the A-frame, I can keep my white summer dresses in heavy rotation. I love the structure of the large cuffed sleeves on this one and when I’m not hanging at the cabin, it is perfect for work and play.
There is still some work to be done in the space, like hanging some shelving, installing lights and hardware and adding in some basket type storage. Looking forward to sharing the whole design from start to finish coming up soon!

Could you tell me the type of top/counter you used on top of your washer and dryer? Laundry room envy!!!
HI Jen, it is baltic birch plywood!
Looks great! Is that a slab of wood just laid on top of the machines? We wanted to do something similar. Thanks!
HI Tracy, Yes! it is just a big cut of playwood. (baltic birch)
LOVE that wallpaper you designed!
The machines look so huge! I am blown away, how are they this big?? Do they take 10kilo loads? They’re reach over your waistline! Why can’t I get these monsters in my country? Just a few of the questions that came up with the sneak pictures above. I look forward to an in-depth reveal!
I love the wallpaper!!! Where can I purchase it?
Hi laurel, I had it custom printed so it isn’t available for purchase quite yet. X
Love the leaning ladder! – can you share the source?
Thanks I made it! There’s a link to the DIY above. X
When can we buy that wallpaper?! LOVE iT!
[…] The beautifully textured black and white wallpaper is a perfect complement to the vintage rug in this laundry room from Stories. […]
