Laundry Center Table Reveal
Okay…I know I’m several days behind on this reveal. I have an excellent reason for this delay…and I’ll get to that explanation in a few moments.
As you know, I spent about three weeks off and on working on what I referred to as my laundry basket shelf. After getting this baby into my laundry room and actually using it for about a week, I’ve renamed it.
This baby is now known as my laundry center table. It’s a folding table, a sorting center, and it’s just darn pretty to look at.
So without further ado…
And here’s another shot (apologies in advance for this slightly blurry photo, but I was crouched in a corner and the oven timer was going off to let me know the blueberry muffins were ready)…
Also please excuse me for failing to “stage” this photo. Yes, that huge pile on top of the laundry center is waiting for me to fold it. Yes, those cheap commercial cubbies with the peeling laminate are ugly, and, yes, I have plans to build some cabinets to replace them.
However, The Hubster has made me promise that I will wait at least a week before I begin another project. I’ve been very wrapped up in another project this week, and the laundry has gotten behind and the dust has piled up and the floors are in desperate need of sweeping, mopping and vacuuming.
I’m hoping The Hubster doesn’t consider finishing touches to be “another project” because tomorrow I’m hoping to squeeze in a couple of hours to do something to dress up the trim work around the posts. It’s gorgeous but needs some “pop”. The details are getting lost in that large expanse of white so I’m planning on distressing the edges a bit with a sanding block and wiping on some chocolate-colored glaze.
I’ve started working on plans for this baby in SketchUp, and I will get those posted in case you decide you just have to have one for yourself. I drew sketches on paper while I was building this, but to say they leave a bit to be desired would be a gross understatement.
I’m ever so grateful for the many awesome bloggers out there who helped me bring this laundry center to life. Ana, who first brought the inspiration piece to my attention, Sausha who is the original source of this awesome idea, and Christa who posted plans I could modify for my purposes. Thank you, ladies, for sharing your time, your talents, and your creativity. I am humbled by your generosity and inspired by your work.
Now…zip over to “What Was I Thinking?”…to check out the project that has completely absorbed me this week…
