I had taken a break over the holidays from my furniture projects to help Cassie remodel the last ugly room in her house — the laundry room. This room was so nasty, everything had to go — walls, ceilings, doors, sink, etc. And of course, she had to have lots of custom storage for all her stuff, and a huge folding counter for all of the new baby clothes, which was of course made from one of the old doors we replaced in this nasty room.

Removing one of the doors left room for this handy little gift wrapping center. And all of the custom shelving is great for storing craft supplies. Grandma now refers to this room as the “Crafting Crapper”.

This room was too pretty now for all of the cleaning tools and supplies, so they had to find a new home. The new storage cabinet was built from materials salvaged from the old laundry room. The sides are hollow core doors, and the top and bottom are two salvaged cabinets. The two center doors were made from the extra wall paneling in the laundry room.

This was the last room that needed to be done. Stay tuned for more before and after pictures of the other completed rooms in this 1950’s rambler. But for now, back to working my way through the shed stacked to the rafters full of inventory.
