Weekend Warriors

    We had a very productive weekend here, I am glad that our "to do lists" are finally back in action. Here are some updates on what we did...

We saved the original kitchen cabinets (click to see more of the kitchen) that we carefully removed and saved thinking that we could donate them to the Restore, but instead soon came up with the idea of putting them in our laundry room! My laundry room is huge in this house, and I know that this is my rare opportunity to create a Martha Stewart-esqe luxury laundry space. 

Armed with some inspiration from these photos we decided we better get started on our laundry room project if we are ever going to transform our dungeon into something as beautiful as these rooms... 





So here's our starting point. Once we removed the hardware we realized that we actually had some really great cabinets to work with. They are solid wood and have a little flare on the front already. We just weren't really into the dark colour, especially for our basement. So here they all are ready to be painted...


But of course we had to prime them first, oh the joys of painting...


Here they are all primed and NOW are really ready to be painted...


We also primed the old island that we are planning on turning into a folding station, fortunately we are planning on doing something with the concrete floors so we were not too worried about getting a little paint on them during the painting process...


As soon as the primer dried the first coat of coconut pie went on, the coverage wasn't great so we are anticipating multiple coats. I am anxious to have them all painted with the new hardware so that we can mount them and start using them for some great laundry storage. 




AND, we received some very exciting news today. Our kitchen countertops are here and are going in on Wednesday! It feels like we've been using the gross old countertops for so long, I am definitely not going to miss them or the chaos they bring to the kitchen. So you can expect an update on the kitchen this week! (Can you tell I am beyond excited?)

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
