Here’s what Leilani had to say about her laundry room from hell before she started:

“Our laundry room is bad bad Leroy Brown. It smells like mouse urine, is not well sealed, I spotted a possum in the ceiling last fall and it is where all the junk in the house gets tossed. The room is in need of a recon so this is yet another pricey (but necessary) challenge.”

AFTER (Well….in progress!)

Leilani's Laundry Room AFTER 1

Since I was on my handyman’s schedule, my after pics are more like “Week 1” pics.  🙂
The first installment of the reno included:
-replacement of nasty insulation in ceiling
-rerouting of electrical wires to create one lighting unit
-cabinet removal
-a bunch of other little tasks involving electrical and plumbing work

Leilani's Laundry Room AFTER 3

See that pile of rodent droppings?  That was just half of what fell out of the exposed insulation. (Serena says: YIKES!!! This scares me! LOL)

Leilani's Laundry Room AFTER 4

“Repairs to get my laundry room to normal was $3023.  This will not include paint or shelving and whatever else I choose to decorate the room with but I plan to shop from within my own stuff and I still have christmas gift cards!”
Well, I can’t wait to see what Leilani’s laundry room looks like when she’s done! You can keep up with her over on her awesome blog!
