Mr. Right has been really busy lately (OK, I've been helping, too!). I've meant to share this earlier, but I never got around to taking pictures before. I have a front loading washer and dryer, but don't have the money or the want to spend money on the pedestal drawers. Then I saw this great tutorial over at Stories of a House. Boy, the drawings and measurements are phenomenal! You should check it out.
Anyway, I didn't have enough room to put that tall of one in, because I didn't want to move the cupboards and this is in a hallway. Mr. Right had to make his own measurements to get it in there. We were trying to put them as close to the bottom cupboard without changing the structure.
This last weekend, we started to put in new floors (here's your sneak peek! I'll do a post on that with more details when we're done.), so everything had to come out and get cleaned, etc. Some people do spring cleaning, but we paint and replace the floors. I'll let you know if it ever gets put back, but Mr. Right is doing a really wonderful job!
That hole you see on the far back right, is for the dryer vent to go out the wall. Again, we were trying to work with what we have there.
Here's a view with the appliances in. I actually gained about 4 inches in my hallway, because the dryer vent goes straight out the bottom, rather than out the back, causing the whole set up to be moved out in the hall.
One word the wise, if you do this project, make sure to buy your baskets first! This would have saved us several trips to different stores to find baskets that fit in the spot. I thought that I could fit three of them down there, but because of the vent, only two fit. The third basket, I put on the top of the washer under the hangers. It fits there perfectly.
A view from the other side shows you that bar for the hangers. At some point, I'd like to change that out for some sort of rack for drying things. Still working on that concept though.
We had everything but the trim on hand from other projects, so it cost less than $10 to build. Not bad! Please visit all the blogs I love to link up to on the Right bar and also, leave me some comments, so I know what you think!
