The laundry gets a little love.

 I would love to work on removing the basic laundry tub and adding a butcher block counter across the sink area and right over the washer and dryer but its not the right time. I wanted to add more hanging to the wall , so I figured adding panelling with a big chair moulding trim would create a great spot for loads of hooks. For hanging more air dry items and hanging up utility items. I used the excess baseboard trim from our house , why not , for the panel frames I used door stop so it only cost $35.00, I love a bargain.

I think I know exactly how to paint this room now....I can't wait to see it all done. I need to sew and hang a curtain ( I think doors on this closet will just get in the way) over the closet and for sure a new rug. Then phase three will be counter and sink.
Another project on the table is finally the entrance. Bye bye subfloor.

But one little thing was bothering me , the placement of the register. It was in the way of a generous and useful sized rug. I asked if it could be moved , and this morning it was , thankfully it was perfectly positioned within the joists so it wasn't a difficult move. I love my Tribute builder. 
The plan is to get this entry completed this weekend . So looking forward to having 0% sub floor...

What is the plan for the entry. Did you pick a tile/ layout?

Don't leave us hanging :)

Are you thinking about putting big tiles for the entry way? I really like that rug in the laundry room :) We just made a mini mud room in our bedroom (how2home.wordpress.com/2012/08/14/how-to-mini-mud-room/) let us know what you think!

Wondering if you do consultations?

I know before you mentioned brick floors. Oh My Goodness! How I love brick floors. Now doing them is another whole box of nails.
They would be my first choice but wood would be my second and tile my third. I have tile. Hubby was worried wood in the entry would leave us in re-do mode at all times. Guess what? We never use the entry. Tile is holding up great. ;)
I vote for brick, but i'm thinking i'll see wood on your entry floor.

I love it all! The marble is beautiful and love sitting back getting to see it come to be.

As tired as you must be it is exciting huh???
