Laundry Closet Update

The washer and dryer are installed.  Woo hoo!  The Best Buy guys stacked them, but I still think we can fit them side-by-side if we change our minds.

Because the installation took an extra day, it gave me some time to paint the inside of the closet.  I chose Valspar's Blue Arrow.   It was my first time using Valspar paint and it was a little thick.  I definitely think I like Benjamin Moore better.  It was also my first time painting highly textured walls.  It required a lot of "filling in" with a paint brush.  There are still some spots that I missed, but it's a closet, so I'm not going to sweat it.

I'm sorry I can't show you better pictures.  It's a really small room!  Now I'm trying to figure out some storage for the space to the left of the appliances.  I'd like to store cleaning supplies, but also save space for a wall-mounted drying rack.





We were thinking of building some custom shelving, but because we'll need easy access to the dryer vent and plug, something that we can easily remove will be better.  I have some ideas in mind!

Have a great Father's Day weekend!  I'm off to Maine to kick my old man's butt at golf play golf with my dad. :)

  1. They are so pretty! And I love the color for the walls. My washer and dryer are dinosaurs ... but they're working dinosaurs (knock wood) ...

    1. Thanks! I wish I had your skills so I could whip up some shelving in a day, but it'll probably take me a bit longer. :)
