Week 1: Laundry Room Before and Plans
Week 2: Plumbing, Prepping Walls, Cabinets, and Mood Board
Week 3: Faux Shiplap & Water Heater Closet
This week we were able to build in the cabinets, put in the water heater wall, build the door, trim out the window, caulk and prime everything. It's starting to come together! We don't have a lot of words for you today, but we do have a lot of update pictures.
The first thing I did was build the cabinets up to the ceiling. My original plan was to add another cabinet up there, but once the cabinets were up, it was just too small of a space and I didn't want to raise or lower anything.
Next was to trim out the window. This was the most fun part since it felt like it made the biggest difference. I used simple 1x4's and laid one flat to make the edge. Spackled all the nail holes, caulked the lines, and primed it all.
Lastly, we installed the water heater closet and built the door to it. I bought some black hinges, but am not totally convinced to not spray them white. I guess we'll decide once we put the hardware on the cabinets. My idea is for it to look more like a wall than a door, and those hinges really stand out.
