Laundry Room

A little over a week ago it was decided that the laundry room just had to be painted and cleaned up. Wilma and I had previously talked about getting rid of our 30+ year old chest freezer from Montgomery Wards. Our electric supplier, DTE, has a re-cycling program. They will give you up to $125 for a large refrigerator/freezer. For my 18 cubic ft. chest freezer they would pay $40.00. The catch: the appliance MUST be running and operational. Mine did run and froze product, so arrangements were made and yesterday it was picked up and removed from our basement. It used to sit just to the left of the dryer in the laundry room.

With the freezer removed, the room looked even worse for needing some clean up and paint. I am having second thoughts about showing these “before and after” photo’s. Kind of ashamed of the look of our Basement Laundry Room, at least the “before photo’s”. Embarrassed smile But I guess everyone has the right to take a peek at our terrible laundry room.

So here it goes…

Looking into the Laundry Room. UGLY!!!

 Looking into Laundry Room after Fresh Paint and clean up.

Above shows the before and after looking into the Laundry Room from the rest of the basement. Below the photo’s were taken standing with my back against the wall next to the treadmill.

Freezer will be donated for recycling. Ugh...those ugly shelves!

The entrance of the Laundry Room.

Well, what ya think? There is a total of 5 gallons of white paint used on the walls and floor. It took 3 coats to get a good covering of paint. I think it’s looking much more acceptable now. Smile

Until next time, be safe and God Bless


  1. Three coats????? What gluttons for punishment you are! But it does look great. How long is the floor going to stay so pretty????

    1. Probably not long as we haven't learned to float over the floor. :)
