Laundry Room Reveal

Author:  Autumn

Gradually, I have been showing you different rooms of our new digs as they come together.  Today, I would like to share our new laundry room with you.  It has not been accessorized, yet.  That will come later, and I will be sure to show you what I do in that department.

We created a laundry room on the second floor out of a corner of the guest room.  This frosted pocket door opens to reveal the laundry room.  When the previous owner lived here, there was a plain door here that went into the guest room.  A closet was to the left.  At our architect’s suggestion, we moved the closets to the other side of the guest room, which I will show you in the future.

Welcome to our laundry room, previously a small closet and wasted space.  It measures 8 x 8 and is the first laundry room I have ever had that has such a large window.  The floor covering is small octagonal tiles.

The wall above the washer and dryer supports a line of cabinets.  The sink is set in carrara marble to tie in with the marble in the rest of the house.

Here is a closer look at the sink.  That little enamelware skillet is my soap dish.  The color is Benjamin Moore’s palladian blue, matched by Sherwin Williams.

This room gives us lots of storage both under the sink and………

above the appliances.

I had a lid made for this old crock, and it holds the detergent.  I have three of  the same crocks in my pantry to store sugar and flour.  I have had them since we were married.

This is the other side of the room.  I brought in the marble-top sewing machine base to use as the folding table.  Clothes pins and softening sheets are in the laundry cannister.  You can get a glimpse of the rod that runs the width of the room.  Mr. Autumn installed it so drying clothes or freshly ironed clothes could hang from it.  The window looks out onto the beautiful and historic park across the street.

This built-in ironing board is a real convenience and a space saver.   It even swivels.

When my mother saw this photo which gives a closer view of the folding table, she informed me that the wash board is backwards.  It is there for looks only to help temporarily hide the electrical box.  We added that wall.  On the other side is the guest room.

Here is one more peak.  If you ever have a desire to wash some clothes, you can come use our laundry room anytime, as long as you do our laundry.

Take care.

We were not paid to mention Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore.

    That’s one amazing laundry room. I love the color and all of the light that you get from the window. You have a ton of good storage and I know when you get it all decorated it is going to be wonderful! Oh, the hanging rod is a great idea!
    Thanks for coming to the THT party.
