My Beach House - Laundry & Pantry





Attention to detail!


Laundry details



Pantry






Loving these two new spaces!
 
These rooms were both in a state of chaos when we bought the house.
They needed totally gutting so we started from scratch.
We're talking plasterboard, ceilings, subfloors, wiring,
plumbing, the list goes on ....
Shovelling out old concrete floors was not a fun job!
The budget was tight so these rooms
have laminated benchtops and joinery.
Instead of the standard 16mm board I used the 32mm width in the pantry
to chunk up the shelves and give them a bit of substance.
I love open shelves because it's a nice opportunity to pretty up the space
and give it some personality.
Even the pantry is colour coordinated, neat and tidy with a home for everything
so I can leave the door open without stressing.
Anything unsightly is tucked away in a basket or behind cupboard doors. 

The old laundry before we moved in!




Thanks for everyone's comments and enthusiasm -
they are so appreciated after all of that at hard work!
I hope you are enjoying the tour
and not getting too bored!!
Regular posts will resume next week so hang in there!

I'm so enjoying the tour. What a transformation on these 2 spaces. I might almost enjoy laundry if I could do it in a room like that.
