Laundry makeover

When we first moved into our home three years ago, it was a 1960s cottage with all original interiors. Over the last three years, Stu had slowly renovated and transformed each room, starting with the kitchen, the living room, the bathroom and the nursery. There was just one last original room standing - the laundry. And it was by far the worst looking room; dingy and mould-stained with loose laminate tiles, exposed pipes and broken cupboards. We both hated to be in that space and never lingered in there anymore than we had to. We'd even keep the door closed so we could pretend it didn't exist.

Over the Christmas holidays, Stu decided to tackle the laundry in what he promised to be a quick renovation. I was slightly freaking out: what if it took longer than expected? With little Alexander around, we use the laundry every single day now. How long can we go without?

Fortunately, Stu kept to his promise and more: he built us a bright, clean, beautiful, user friendly laundry room with triple the storage space. Here it is...TADA!
air-er that tucks neatly away - love!
I'm thrilled. I love our new laundry. I love everything about it. And most of all, I love Stu.

it's amazing! I think I need to borrow your husband so he can work some magic in our house too! he's done a fabulous job. I'm sure you'll be testing the laundry out a lot at the moment with Alexander keeping you busy.
