Laundry Room Before and After!

I have been busy, busy, busy!!  Finally getting the Laundry Room finished up.... so I thought I would take some pictures and show you the Before and After shots!  I am always up for a challenge and this was no exception trying to get it all to tie together!  
Mark put Beadboard up on two of the walls, I layed tile on the floor and he helped me grout! 
We painted the walls and cupboards white and put new hardware on the doors.  It looked too white so I put fabric onto boards and mounted them onto the backs of the open shelves!  I didn’t stop there, I covered the ironing board cover in the same fabric and also lined the back of the cool drying rack I found with the same fabric!  Our visitors sometimes end up in our pantry when headed to the bathroom so I decided to cut some letters and label the doors!  We added the deep sink and cabinet which I am sure will come in handy if for nothing else some dirty dog paws!  It is so nice having my washer and dryer on the main level!!!  While I was at it I had  bought this six pane window at an antique shop and decided to put it up on the wall with a wreath, the shutters were left over from my Robinson house.  While I am recycling the shelf above the drying rack is some of the old wood work from This Old House that I painted and added hooks to!  I hope you like it cause I am pretty much lovin it!!!  Hope you don’t get overdosed on pictures!
Yesterday was Our Second Wedding Anniversary and I am so thankful to have Mark in my life, I have been richly blessed to have him as my husband!  Tomorrow is my Birthday so I am so excited my daughter and family are on their way here and taking us out for supper!  With my daughters having young children I am the one who usually travels to see them.... so I am super excited because the grandkids always want to see where I live!  One of my grandaughters insist her mother doesn’t know where I live... I tell her otherwise but seeing is believing .....  They are coming soon!  :)  BTW they have all been here but it has been a year!
Hope your Valentine treated you royally!  I awoke to a rose everywhere I frequent in the mornings with a candy heart nearby with a saying!  Too Sweet !  We decided to eat supper at home and Mark did the cooking and made some awesome Shish Cabobs (sp?)   however they are spelt they tasted great!!!  Thanks Mark!
