Finally my laundry room functions! Don’t get me wrong there is still little things, such as getting that board off the wall under the cabinets! However I am functioning now!
I bought that cabinets and the black granite countertop off of Craigslist almost 2 years ago. Some people were leaving their home and wanted to sell them and I wanted to buy them! I thought that it would help for storage and make a great table over my washer and dryer! Yes, I know the granite is not over top of my washer and dryer. When I bought the new set last year, I was also given a really good deal on the drawers under them, so…. I bought them too! I love the drawers. Since we have a small bathroom right next to the laundry room I keep the extra hand drying towels in one of the drawers! I also keep the hangers under the washer, because we hang dry a LOT of clothes, it doesn’t take long since it is so dry here in Vegas! There is a separator in the drawers which is perfect for separating the adult and kids hangers! So honestly this made the washer and dryer WAY to tall to put a table over them!
Sean went a couple of months ago now, and bought these legs for the table from Lowe’s. They are natural pine, so he had to stain them, but he picked out a beautiful color, that as you can see match perfectly with the cabinets. And he was able to use the scraps from the cabinets that we did not use before, for the edges of the actual table. Then we hired a guy to come and cut the granite down to size! We actually were just planning on having it cut, but he fabricated it, so that the side corners matched the front, and he also made us a 4 inch black splash with the curves as well! I am so happy with the turn out, I can not even explain! I not only love the look of the granite, but LOVE the wooden legs~
I walked the guys outside, when they were leaving. When I came back in, Sean had already had the laundry out of the dryer and on the table! Hey, he was folding it, what was I going to complain about? He was smiling from ear to ear! Now, to tell you the truth, the table is a bit high for the normal persons liking. I am only 5’2 and my husband is 6’3 so he has a tendency to make things a bit taller so that he does not have to lean down, but I also wanted it tall enough to put that little dresser under it. I like to keep summer gear for the little ones pool, in there. No sense in taking all that upstairs!
I love my functioning laundry room! Maybe this summer if I decide to go back to Ohio, we can work on my sisters! She has a really big laundry room, and she really wants to work on getting hers done too! Or maybe that is just me wishful thinking!!!! You ready Andrea???
