Week Four! This is a crucial week. All the big decisions need to be made and ordered by now…which they are, thankfully
! I found a great looking faucet last week
(see image above) it’s been ordered and thanks to rush shipping it’s here and sitting in the box waiting for the plumber.
The old counters have been removed and the new ones are installed. The white subway tile back splash is going up as I type this. In fact, the shorter of the two walls is already complete and it looks so fresh and clean…perfect for a laundry room.
I’ve got both the plumber and the wallpaper guy coming in tomorrow. The faucet installation should be pretty straight forward and the walls will first be prepped before the paper goes up…. It’s really all coming down to the wallpaper…
As I wait on the wallpaper, I’ve been shopping for accessories for the laundry room. So far, I’ve found a rolling hamper in a perfect size
and a fun striped ironing board cover.
Pulling the room together with little accessories (the zhushing) is always the most fun – but I’ve got to keep reminding myself to factor the shipping dates into the timeline here.
While all of this is going on, I’ve been slowly organizing the laundry room. It’s no longer a catch all for old useless items and a mishmash of dated accessories. Limiting the amount of stuff on the counters and finding better ways to use all of the cabinets and drawers (like a wrapping paper, tape and bows section) has already changed this room for the better.
