This week was the fun one, where an application of color made this room come alive! I absolutely love the way this Benjamin Moore's Gunmetal( 1602) color looks with the white trim. I had to paint before the cabinets go up, so it took 2 coats for best coverage.
( yes, that is green astro turf in my husband's man cave. He was a high school football coach for 40 years.)
It has a washboard side to it and my Shih Tzu fits in it. My golden retriever is going to have to go in the bathtub!
SNAG...the washing machine has been leaking on the floor, so we had a repairman in to fix it and found out we bought it in 1996. No thank you on a $300.00 repair! So we had to purchase a new machine. I bought a Speed Queen for $700.00. I took the advice of my repairman who said all those fancy front loaders and computer panels have lots of expensive repair problems, and I do alot of heavy washing (i.e. horse blankets) so I'm happy to go with a heavy duty tried and true commercial brand.)
The center white faucet I ordered online was too clunky and massive, so I returned it in favor of a chrome single faucet. I had the plumber in to connect the sink and faucet and it is fully operational! My husband needs to finish the base cabinet ( install face frame, mount the doors, secure the hamper on the back wall with a chain so it doesn't fall forward too far).
Next is to install the upper cabinets and figure out the window treatment, install a new light fixture and do a custom treatment on the walls...oh, and the fun part: hardware, accessories and staging.I need to paint and organize the closet in there as well. Can't wait!
Good luck to all my challengers who are:
Please hop over to see their progress and cheer them on with me! See you next Wednesday!( or hopefully sooner!)
Thanks for your continued support everyone!
P.S. I have jury duty today so I will have to check in and comment tonight1
