Every summer I tackle a big project while on vacation from my full time job. Last year I helped my dad renovate a room in my parents’ basement, and this year I finally finished the job fully by giving their basement laundry room a makeover! This project has been a year in the making and my mom couldn’t be more excited about her new space! Just wait until you see what this place looked like before!
DIY Basement Laundry Room Makeover
It feels so good to be done with this space after slowly working on it for the past year. I started with the living room, worked my way to a small office space, and then turned a storage closet into a bike room.
It’s only fair that I finished off this project with the most challenging room of all… the laundry room.
There are few things in life that are as satisfying as a good before and after photo… ask and you shall receive…
This is what this space looked like before…
… and here’s what it looks like now!
This renovation was a big one, so I’m talking about the steps I took to make it happen on my YouTube channel. So, make sure to check it out!
