My House: Laundry, Progress

As predicted the laundry room is slooowly moving along. The good news is it's still entirely functional, or maybe we'd move faster if it wasn't??

Anywho, I picked up one of the last touches to the room and one that I'm pretty excited about: the countertop. This was a huge debacle in the room. The washer/dryer is deeper than your standard countertop so the first thing we did was look into getting a custom countertop done. It's doable but not the most affordable option. We want it to look good but the reality is it is in a closet. Next we hit up IKEA, which I blame for weeks and weeks delay on this project.

I had written out an extremely long winded story, but I know you all have better things to do with your time so long story short: IKEA employees led us astray. First two visits we were told countertops had to be custom, turns out (3 weeks later) you can in fact pick up a countertop in store. Arg.

So on Monday I picked up the PRAGEL countertop and we will be rigging something up to make the standard 26" depth work for us. All for a wopping $80. That's more like it, sure wish that first guy at IKEA would have told me that.

Here's a little peek at the room so far...

... and my mad skills fitting a 6' countertop and a stroller into my little VW tiguan, go car go! (don't worry baby hitched a ride with Nana).

Phew! So glad we finally sorted that out. I'll keep you posted on what we do to make it work in the space.

  2. Sounds exciting though - despite the glitches and ill informed Ikea employees!
