New Laundry Room

Who wants to walk in the back door
RIGHT into the washer and dryer?  I did that for too many years.  It was time for a change.
Out came the old Maytags that I'd had for way too long.
 What a MESS!

Enclosure for the new machines begins...

That's a tight fit...but my husband (The Professor) measured twice.  Good thing!

Now The Fun Part
We get to reuse the old shutter doors that used to  close off my now open study AND the recently purchased "Old Mexican Window" that was originally just going to hang on the wall.

I decided that this would be better as a "window" so The Professor made it into one. 

 The reused shutter doors have a dark walnut stain but the two new shutters (by the door) are unstained as yet.  Would they all look better dark?  Or do you think an antiquing or white wash?  
The top shutter door has a neat surprise behind it.  I'll save that for another post
Can you guess what is behind door #1?


  1. Hi! Love your laundry room. Can't wait to see what's behind door #1

  2. What a cool twist to an old window! I love the shape of this sweet thing and the 3D aspect it adds to your display. What a great looking laundry area.. nice!

    Thanks for linking up to SNS!

  3. OH wow! I love the look of your newly designed wash dryer space... I'm guessing that behind door #1 is storage for soap powder, bleach and wash day supplies?
    I'm think the bottom one holds dirty laundry?

    Or maybe there's an ironing board that folds out to iron those wrinkly clothes?

    I can't wait to see either!

  4. You lucky, lucky lady. I love your new laundry room and that alcove is too cool!

  5. What a great idea and an amazing job (I hate walking into laundry rooms, too). Let's see, what's behind the doors--extra storage for cookbooks or linens?

  6. That is a beautiful laundry room. I wouldn't mind doing laundry in there! I love how your husband built that little alcove for your looks great.

  7. You have a talented hubby. I looks so great.
