Project Update: "Our Next Project" is...

A while back, I showed a snapshot of our messy hall closet and alluded to our next project. Well it is finally here! Our contractor has been working to finish our new laundry room. We are so lucky to have a lot of closet space here at our casa. When we bought our house, one thing that irked me was that the laundry was in the pantry. Having lived in a duplex with no pantry, I knew that was an issue for me. So our awesome realtor (by the way - if you're looking for a house in Memphis for real get her name because she's the best) came up with an idea to convert this hall closet to a laundry closet - it is the perfect width. 

The closet is in between the front two bedrooms. Right now it has a single doorway but it will be expanded to be a double doorway with bi-fold doors. We got a front-loader washer/dryer set on Craig's List for a steal that were less than a year old. They have been just sitting out in our garage waiting to be installed at our new place. 

Here's where we stand right now - the electrician has come and run wiring for the washer and dryer. The plumber has run plumbing for the washer. The contractor has run the vent for the dryer. What we have left: he'll finish off the wall and open the door frame. The electrician will add a light in the closet. I'm going to paint the closet myself to save money. Our contractor is making shelves for it. 

I can't wait to show you the final product!
