~ Mud/Laundry Room {almost} Finish ~

Happy Sunday Friends & Folk...
a rainy, muggy some-what chilly day here today ~
perfect for a relaxing holiday for Peter & I !

I wanted to show you our progress thus far of our mud-laundry room;
it is not 100% complete, but enough that I am over the moon happy!

we will be covering our relic washer/dryer with wood & fabric next ~
Peter has some great ideas for them!

it is a very narrow room, that was once an enclosed porch 
so it's hard to get a good angle for a photo…

the pair of glass-front cabinets were saved for many years by Peter, 
who got them from an old house he was remodeling up in CT. ~ 
we have 4 of the same hanging in our kitchen, 
but decided to strip these and leave just the doors painted…
love them!

I have my collection of blue fabric covered boxes in them now ~
{from Linda Evans/Remember When Farm} 
I store all kinds of things in them, like small ornaments for my feather tree, old clothespins, etc.

I also love the little keyhole shelf my sweet hubby added for me ~
he knows I love to decorate seasonally, so this is a perfect little spot to add more goodies ;)

oh, and my new old ceiling is da bomb ~ 

here is the cupboard & shelf I refinished…
the tin lamp and hanging drying rack 
were purchased last weekend in Sturbridge at Village Primitives;

this is a view from the kitchen doorway, the kitchen, 
breakfast nook & mud/laundry room are now open to each other now ~
… it looks so big to me!

oh I also repainted this little toy box that we've had forever, we sit on it to put on our boots & shoes, and it is also great storage… you can see the colonial blue color I mixed in the photo above…

here is the lamp & awesome double drying rack!

and another good shot of our ceiling ;)

another further-away shot or two from the kitchen…

I'll post more when we have the washer/dryer covered up ;)

~ Blessings from the Farm ~

Your renovated mud-laundry room looks great. I love the cabinet/cupboard across from the washer/dryer. Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.

Oh, my goodness!!! What you two can do when you get together! I love every detail, Lori. So homey and sweet. I like that it is open like that…you can do laundry and have a bite of breakfast, mixing work and pleasure. :) Your Sturbridge lamp and drying rack are wonderful additions…but really, that ceiling it a work of art.

Gorgeous laundry room! Love the ceiling and those cabinets (especially with the shelf in between) are superb!!! I'd be in there doing laundry ALL day! OK... so maybe I'd take a stitch or two in there as well... lol! Happy 4th!

Wow! Lori and Peter! You need your own tv show on HGTV! I LOVE everything about your remodel and those old cupboards are a gem! They certainly were worth hanging on to! I would love a new laundry room as mine is in our dungeon ( basement)! Hope you are relaxing and enjoying the fruits of your labors!
Blessings Always!!
