Last post I was dealing with most of the storage problems. You can read about that here.
The final issue I needed to address was where to put my Laundry supplies?
Lets begin with that.
Remember my old kitchen, before renovation? Well, here is a picture in case you haven't seen it:
I still had those two cabinets that I replaced with the Range Hood and the Refrigerator Enclosure wandering in my garage!
Talking about Reduce...Reuse...Recycle! I got to use them. They were the solution! one of them was a 30" and the other a 36". That's why I didn't have enough space for the two wine racks to fit.
I wanted to put the wine rack shelf in between the two cabinets as you can see here:
The only problem I had to face was that left corner having a 45 degree angle.
I saved the side I had cut off and re-attached it the best I could with glue and little nails because I wanted to use the little holes on it to put the shelf later on.
|Those gigantic holes were going to be fixed on site!|
I primed them and attached them to the studs. There you can still see the big holes. The board on top was placed to continue the cabinets all the way to the ceiling.
The board at the bottom was placed there temporarily to support the wine rack shelf during installation.
The two cabinets and the wine rack shelf installed:
|For how to build this wine rack shelf check here.|
Then, I bought from HD a 9"Wx10'Lx2"D piece of wood to use as a long shelf beneath the cabinets. That was the only piece I bought, all the other materials were remnants from the kitchen.
To better support this shelf, pieces of 1x2 pine were first attached to the wall studs right under it, making sure everything was level.
|Notice how the mouldings transformed them!|
I also created a kind of build in all the way to the ceiling to maximized storage space, you can see how to do that, here.
The lower part of the cabinets was finished off with moldings just the same as in the kitchen, here. Everything was primed and painted the same way the kitchen cabinets were done.
I decided to paint the back of that wall with the same brown I painted the Entertainment wall in the Family room to try and finished that paint. I still got left overs!
But well, This is reveal time! Here are the finished pictures:
|As I told you, one step out of this room and you stumble upon the Kitchen table!|
|I love the extra storage created at the top for those items|
you don't use everyday!
|I'm loving those circle wall decals I found at Target for 10 bucks!|
The Letters "Home is wher... " I just wrote them with Sharpies.
Finally all of my Laundry supplies are enclosed!
and I even got extra space for the glass ware!
Can you spot the gigantic holes on that cabinet? me neither!
And of course I couldn't forget the Before and After pic, here it is:
That's for now, I think I need to go do some Laundry, no more excuses, perhaps while enjoying a well deserved glass of wine! :) Next time I'll talk about building the cabinets all the way to the ceiling, it was super easy. Also, how I covered those big gigantic holes.
