We hope you have been having a great week so far! It's hard to believe it is already Thursday, where did it go so fast?

On Sunday, before the laundry room demolition began, Wren wanted to take everyone on one final tour of the old room.

Here is the view from the hallway, where the future shelves will hang above the dryer.


Coming in from the garage this is what used to greet us.


We are hoping to keep this room's budget under $1,100, not including appliances. We were actually forced to upgrade the appliances 1 week after Wren was born and the washer died. Thankfully it was a blessing in disguise because that was boxing day, so we scored this set at Best Buy for $800. Sean braved frigid temperatures at 5am to grab 1 of only 50 sets, but we haven't seen such a deal since so it was worth it!


This is our 1 and only light. It will be replaced by 6 pot lights to give us a nice bright spot to work.

Bye bye closet! I can't wait to see the hallway door from this door and get more natural light in here!






On Monday Sean ripped out all the cabinetry and dry wall on the closet. Here is what it looks like as of today:


We will be taking out the 2x4's today, and hopefully the tiles!




It always gets worse before it gets better, but wouldn't it be nice if it just got better???

What a great big laundry room. Having your layout exactly as you want it will be wonderful, you are going to love it when it's done.
I know what you mean about it getting worse before it gets better. We just ripped up our master bath, and I can't wait till its done and pretty again!

What a sweet little happy face! I don't know how you get any work done with that one around! My favorite pic is the one of the dog trailing her. Lol.

Oh I can't wait to see what you do. I've been wanting to redo my laundry room but don't know where to start. Good Luck with the reno!

Love your laundry room already because of all that space and can't wait to see what you guys turn it into. We are in the middle of a laundry reno right now as well and I would love to see your ideas!

I can't wait to see your finished laundry room! What is it about a nice laundry room that excites a girl (is that pathetic?) How adorable is Wren too... she looks just as excited as I'm sure you are!

Shannon said...

Wow, it is going to be awesome!!!

JenE said...

cool - can't wait to see the rest. Call me crazy, but I love seeing the work in progress pics that my blogging "friends" post - such great ideas to keep in mind for when I start these projects!

Your daughter is such a cutie :)

Good luck on the revamp!

Holly,
I can't wait to see the finished product!!!
I am always excited when I get a comment from YOU! Makes my day!
Okay the lens~I really don't know anything about cameras, My husband got me this camera for Christmas 3 years ago, because I love taking pictures, so I'll tell you it is a Canon EOS 40 & has the same lens that came with it. Which the numbers on the lens are 28-135 lens. I just move things around until I think the picture looks decent. (I am a little add with that) Terrible I know, the book that comes with it, has limited info, and I really want to take a class in photography, because I know I could be doing so much more with it. Hope this helps!
LOVE your blog!
Take Care,
Maria

Laurie Jones said...

Can't wait to see the finished project, but of course seeing your daughter Wren in the meantime will do! Have been reading your blog for awhile now and I have to admit it's become one of my favorites! You have terrific style!
