Laundry Room Renovation - Phase 2
So we have completed phase 2 of our laundry room - which to me - basically makes it done!! Although, not really, we still have a lot of work to do. It is completely usable though!! This was a moderate phase and it took quite a bit of time. Luckily, I have an amazing husband who did just about everything! Unfortunately, since the husband did most of the work, I didn't get very many in progress photos :(
We had to shave off about a half inch off the top of each piece because it was too tall (we kind of knew this when we ordered it, but had our fingers crossed that it would work) This way, it was flush with the ceiling instead of having to buy the next size down which we wouldn't have liked. It wasn't that bad, but obviously would be better if you could order one the perfect size! We did ready to assemble cabinets, so they have a lot of choices, but not fully custom.
Counter top frame
My husband built a frame to go around the washer and dryer so we could mount the counter tops. He used 2x4s and jointed them using our Kreg K5 (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if you plan to do any wood building projects!!)
We ordered a Blanco silgranit sink online (not sure where - husband ordered it) and it took about 8 weeks to come in. That was the major hold up for this phase! We also bought a faucet from Lowe's, it's a fancy one with a motion sensor so you don't have to touch the faucet to turn it on!
We got the counter tops from a local store in our town. We went with Quartz and I absolutely love it. It has a pretty silver sparkle to it and I think it looks great with the grey walls. Once the counter tops were installed, we used some of the plywood with the same white finish (that we ordered with the cabinets) as the cabinet to border so you couldn't see the wood. My husband used wood glue and clamps to get the pieces to dry. He also had to caulk to fill in any gaps. We still have to paint the edges, but that will be part of the final phase.
