Waaaay back in May, I posted some photos of new storage cabinets we installed in the ginormous laundry room at the house in Hooterville and said I anticipated having the third wall of cabinets done and ready to share “within the next few weeks.”
Sheeesh! What I SHOULD have said was “within the next few MONTHS”!
How did I forget that since buying the house/farm last October, it seems like we have at least 2 dozen projects in the works at any given time? “Urgent Need” seems to play a big part in which projects get completed, and which ones drag on and on. Invariably, if we start one thing, something else pops up that ends up having a higher priority level. The laundry room is one of those projects that keeps getting neglected for other things.
You can see the initial phase of the laundry room here.
This is the “before” photo of the 3rd wall I wanted to put cabinets on.
When the cabinets were installed, we were left with the hot water heater sandwiched in the corner so the next dilemma became how to conceal it but still leave it easily accessible if it should require temperature adjustment, repairs or replacement.
The partial “wall” in the photo below got me thinking about how we could create something similar to hide the hot water heater. (Don’t you love this laundry area?)
