Beach Cottage Laundry Room Update
Thu 11th, Sep, 2014
Well, here we are Beach Cottage ladies, iPhone pis from the laundry room, we have a door, we have a fitted, primed and painted door now too.
As I said before, moving this door so it opened outwards instead of inwards was, once we got all the junk out and looked at the room, key to making it work. But you know when you do something and think, really, will it really make that much difference? Umm yup, it totally does. Job well done.
The door came unpainted, so I got my handyman to paint it, oooops hold on a minute, don’t have handyman, handyman is me, so yes I primed this door – good thing is the window panes come with a plastic protective coating on them which you just pull off when done….eeeeeaaaaasssy! When I first looked at it, my heart sunk thinking of the masking up and the scraping off of the paint afterwards. Hopefully there will be none of that.
When I first started planning this the door was going to be a darkish, charcoal-ish, Paris-ish grey, once it was primed though that went out the window (or door ha) and I am now thinking this will be either white or the same blue as the front door. I just think the white looks better against the colour of the house, which is interesting because the colour of the house is changing soon along with a new roof.
So anyway, I went first coat of paint in white, the thinking being that if I don’t like it, it’s easy to paint over it with blue.
And there’s news on the laundry sink, well I finally found one, though it’s not strictly for a laundry. I didn’t get time to snap it today, indeed it’s not even out of the box yet, more on that soon, there is a leeetle problem with it in that it means will probably have to get a new washing machine even though there is nothing wrong with the one we have, and I hate doing that, but if we do that (which I think we will, I’ll explain why when I show you the sink) then I am going to try and find a young family (or old family) that need a (large) washing machine and can’t afford one…there is NO WAY it’s going to landfill.
That’s it so far, this ‘small’ makeover is getting bigger by the minute…it started with de-crappifying and has not taken on a life of its own.
Rightio off I go to stroke a sink.
p.s. am teaching Barls how to DIY
p.p.s maybe will paint it grey
