The first thing we did was gut the place, flooring, shelving, old machines, cabinets… they all went.Who knew mold could grow in the desert?! Well it can, and behind the mirror was the place of choice. After a complete gut job, we put the space back together with new walls, new flooring (this wood-look tile), and new paint. Then I made some plans and got to work… I wallpapered (I used one of my own designs and had it printed), put together some new Ikea cabinets, hung a shelf, had our new Electrolux washer and dryer installed, and finished a piece of plywood for a countertop. I used a high quality birch plywood and coated it with polyeurathane to seal it. I couldn’t be happier with the result and how we transformed the room, making it a little brighter and a lot more me.
And the Electrolux washer has been amazing. Archie the toddler loves to stain my clothes, but the SmartBoost technology helps to keep my colors vibrant and stain free.
