Hey guys and welcome back to my channel excuse the mess in the background I’m just in my room and I’m really embracing the no makeup Sundays. So today I’m going to be showing you my laundry DIY makeover so today I’m just gonna show you the before and after of our laundry that we did ourselves it was very gross and it required some paint but it wasn’t too hard to do and it is easy for you to achieve so stick around to the end to see the after end result so anyways let’s get straight into my laundry DIY makeover.
So as you can see our laundry really needed a renovation makeover and we did it DIY on a budget the paint was old and patchy in multiple shades of cream which really made it much darker than the room needed to be we also had a worn old shelf and single sink with no bench space or storage space so we really want to shoot freshen up and modernize it on a budget.
Shat I first did was remove the tiles as you can see around the sink area I just used a chisel and a hammer so I’m just quickly showing you how I did it they were really stuck down and normally I find that they’re not as stuck down as this when everything removed tiles in the past so it required a little bit of banging loosening up and then also a lot of chiseling and pulling down.
I did cause a few holes as you can see in the walls so after this I had to put gyprock and then also plaster sheets which you can get from Bunnings or your local home improvement store and then we patched all of it up as well and then painted it white which we did after I obviously removed all the tiles and then after I moved the remove the small shelf because that is where we were going to put our cupboards above the sink that we were going to put in. So this is the remnants after I’ve removed all the tiles and the Shelf of as you can see I did have a few holes in the wall and then lots of tiles which we had to clean up to be able to move on and plaster around and remove the sink.
Next up we installed these flat pack cupboards which we got from Bunnings they’re about 69 and 150 dollars for the top and underneath and then we also grabbed this bench which was $99 we used the entire bench and then cut off the excess pieces of the bench to create the other mini shelf and then James also had to cut the hole in the bench top to place this sink which was just about $150 I bought it online.
Then James went ahead and installed these subway tiles himself as you can see it just created we had some leftover excess tiles that we used from our kitchen so he just did that and then he also installed the leftover wood as a little shelf where we could put our baskets and our additional storage.
This is our renovated DIY laundry that we did we had to buy this single like wooden bench top which isn’t actually meant to be a laundry bench top it was just like a big like wooden bench top that we got from Bunnings and we had to cut it to size which James obviously did so that you can fit your washing machine and dryer underneath although we don’t have a dryer we have a mini fridge this is where we keep dog food.
So this is from Kmart that we got and then we decided we wanted to match our kitchen which is a subway tile backsplash and then we just got a dark grout because we have a lot of like black accented things in the house which is why we even used these black hold us to keep the shelf up and then we also have black handles here on the cupboards when you get a black Sink thought because we were trying to save money so we kept the same tap whereas what was previously in here and then we just got a new sink because it needed it was a very disgusting sink if you would have seen and then we just needed some extra storage in here so this is kind of where we keep our like towels. Some of our towels like washcloths and like the iron and stuff like that and then we also with the rest of the wood that we got from here we made a shelf just to keep like washing liquid and stuff up there so you can see we also got a little baskets just to keep it a little bit more tidy and then we also have our washing basket there which is kind of matches it.
So materials that we needed to get for to do this we obviously we already had these leftover tiles from the kitchens and so we only had to buy the grout the bench top the black accessories and the cupboards that we needed for here and then the sink as well.
