Due to the long wait for tradesmen , the finished laundry unveil will not be happening today :(
So I decided to do a little sneak peek update instead.
The stone benches & sink went in yesterday , the electrician is coming on Tuesday , no day from the plumber as yet on his arrival aahhhh.
The idea was to have a laundry that was white with bursts of colour my favourite blue. I want to create a fresh & fun feel.
So this is where we are up to.....
Old dryer will be replaced with a new shiny white ( hubby dosent understand why I need to replace the dryer we have had for 18 years & very rarely use ) call me vain but the reason is it just looks dreadful with all the new shiny things & its a good excuse to give it to a lady I know who dosent have one & is having trouble hanging her sheets & towells on the line due to arthritis.
Cupboard door still to go on & handles to be choosen & I am painting the walls white & the door a lovely glossy white .The tap is just sitting there , waiting for me to decide if I am happy with it. I keep saying its just the laundry you dont need the tap that you love at 4 times the price of this one. I was going to put overhead cupboards up but I am now thinking a nice thick white shelf.
Then there is the splashback , It will be 600mm high & I cant decide weather to end it at the bench or continue it behind the washing machine ? I think it will make the laundry look longer along the wall if I continue it along. But then where do I end the overhead shelf ? Opinions on that issue would be greatly appreciated.
I have had all kinds of ideas from white subway tiles with a bevelled edge to wallpaper with a sheet of glass over it (been advised against this) or have a laser print like a floral design in blue to attach behind glass , beadboard painted milk blue or white ( I do have another small bench in the laundry that I think I will add the beadboard too.
So I quickly popped into The Tile Mart this morning as Jnr son just wanted to go home ! But I did manage to get a few samples. Did I mention I have decided I am going to attempt tiling the splashback myself , how difficult could it be ??? she says with nervous trepidation. The white tiles just seemed a bit bland with the white bench top , even though I love white.
I keep going past the laundry today & every time I look in these glass tiles get me excited. Not sure if its
because it is the only colour in there or because I just love them. I always go the safe route , but Im feeling a little cheeky today........
Enjoy your weekend
