Back to the laundry room
This is where we left off in the laundry room. Finished except for the door. I didn't want to put the same door back up because (since we raised the washer) when you open the washer door it would hit the doorknob and I didn't want to end up cracking the glass.
So we bought a set of bi-fold doors and took them apart so we could use them as 'French' doors.
Personally, I was okay with no door - this is how it stays 95% of the time anyway. I used to keep the door closed as much as possible because it was just ugly, but now I don't mind the door being open - makes it easier to hear them ding when they are finished. However, there are those rare times that the washer and/or dryer is going in the evening and it can sometimes make it hard to hear the television so hubby wanted a door, so doors it is.
There is just one little problem with the doors
When they are open (remember 95% of the time!) this side covers both the light switch and the cross stitch I have hanging there. The switch on the left was the fan/vent switch (which I never use) and the one on the right (behind the open door) was the light switch. Hubby switched those around the other day so now I don't have to move the door to turn the light on. Now if I can just decide where to move that cross stitch piece to we can finally stick a fork in the laundry room and call her done!
Have a great weekend!
