A Coastal Nest shameful laundry room..

This is our house, prior..PRIOR to us moving in.
(I'm clearly setting the stage, here. Bear with me)
As, some of you avid nest followers know, this was the house that fate brought me to.
Me and my ten speed bike. We use to circle this house in my cut offs and my Stanford t shirt. Pedaling around and around. Checking out the house and the lovely yard..Although never to go actually INSIDE it, I just knew I wanted to live here.
what was I thinking? Just kidding..Anyway.
It was unfortunately "modernized" you know how things like that happened.
This is the laundry room, or laundry hallway I would call it.
Here, is what my fabulous Bob Villa has done with this space.
I took this (above shot) standing in the same place, I just looked to my left. This is a teeny itsy bitsy tiny bathroom that was in the laundry hallway, mudroom, sauna, catch all area of the home.
Again, I say..
This window is in the same place that..These here, new windows are in..That doorway was where I was standing to take the photos above.So, this is how I have been living with my laundry room for at least a year now. Guess what..My lovely husband is starting to get to work on this space for me.
I know, I kissed his feet. We have saved alot of things from the beach re-do and are re-purposing ALOT of things and being all good and GREEN--(ack!)
for lack of $$$$.
It just plain needs to get done, its CCCCold back here!
Hello handsome, almost didn't see you there with all of that camouflage on!
Can you believe I have this kind of a mess?
now you can see I am no robot and you may all breathe a sigh of relief and move me down a notch, or two if you like.
I needed that.

This is gonna be fun!!!
Stick with me to see a great transformation of this space!
Ive got it ALLLLLL planned out..

I feel soooo much better now that I know your house is not perfect, and look forward to see what Bob Villa does with the space--you just crack me up!

I can't wait!

You really are so funny! Love reading your Blog...and the way you have with words. You are a good photographer too!

Well..."Bob Villa" has some work ahead of him. Can't wait to see it. I'm sure he will do a great job...look what you guys did at the cottage!

BTW...I have spread the work about the beach cottage available for rent!

Ooooh I love this!!! Can't wait to see the progress!

Martha said...

Woo Hoo!!!

At least SOMEBODY I know is finishing a project :)


Judy said...

I look forward to many pictures of the progress. I love before and after pictures, especially from someone as talented as you, when it comes to decorating. Many women dream of having their very own "Bob Villa".

Count me in! I'll be staying tuned and taking notes. You know I need to Lisa! You're genius and I'm clueless when it comes to this stuff.

Millie said...

Isn't progress great Lisa! You've given me the courage to post on our disgusting/revolting/hideous bathroom renovations now. I've had it sitting in Drafts for a couple of weeks not knowing whether to or not. If I get any complaints after posting I'll tell them 'Lisa mad me do it!'

Oh I'm so excited to see how this is going to turn out. I'm ashamed to say that your laundry hallway is waaaaaaaaaay better than my laundry closet.
I'm excited to see what you do.
