Raise your hand if you remember the bathroom renovation.
You missed it?
That’s why we are friends because I almost forgot about it too. 🙂
Let’s go all Julie Andrews and start at the beginning.
We had two bathrooms downstairs. There was a giant powder bath. You can see that here. There was also a super small master bath that longed for a shower and a tub. You can see that before here.
We moved the wall and made the powder bath into a smaller bath and the master bath much bigger with tiles and organization and a tub and a shower.
It was a lot. And then? Just when you thought we were done. Just when you thought we couldn’t get any more renovated.
We added a little laundry room renovation.
Here’s the before.
I love the before. Seriously. It’s my favorite before in the history of befores.
But it had one fatal flaw.
See that half wall next to the dryer? It’s kind of hard to tell it’s there, but there’s a space behind that wall with a curtain hanging down from it and every time I posted this laundry room people always asked me what was behind the curtain and I never really mentioned it.
It was a shower.
Not a cute shower–a shower that had lived a good life and partied too hard in 1972. It needed to be replaced and after we renovated the bathrooms and moved everything around we didn’t really need a shower in our laundry room anymore.
The laundry room looks like this.
And wait for it….wait for it….wait for it….
I’ve always wanted a sink in this room.
1. It’s practical.
2. It was super affordable.
3. It’s the perfect place to soak dirty things like clay-covered white ball uniforms.
4. I saw one in a Hallmark movie once where the lady was running a bed and breakfast and she would make fresh cinnamon rolls every morning and wear an apron with stripes and cut fresh flowers from her yard and fill the sink with them.
This is me recreating the movie without the bed and breakfast or the cinnamon rolls.
I’m working on the apron.
Here’s a close-up of the sink and the faucet.
I just got the sink from a restaurant supply company.
Great resource if you are on a budget because you already spent all your money on the bathrooms.
The faucet came from a local plumbing supply place and it was really inexpensive, too.
I love it. Truly. It’s beautiful and affordable and industrial and super useful.
I just cut these hydrangeas this morning and I’m filling the house with them after they say hello to the sink and all I can say is good thing.
Good thing the shower left the building.
Good thing the new sink came to stay.
And good thing the laundry room is ready now…
….just in case I start making cinnamon rolls and open a bed and breakfast. 🙂
