When we moved to our new home in Ohio the laundry room lacked storage. (One long white wire rack) My wife of 27 years pointed out to me that this would be my first project… Note: I was fine with the wire rack thing. Honey; now that your laundry room is completed can I now start my cabinets for my shop?

Very Nice. How did you finish it? (paint via sprayer, brush, lacquer?) The finish looks great to me.

For the record I hate the painting process and avoid painting any of my projects as much as possible. I feel paint is very unforgiving if you make a mistake and have to strip part or all of the project back down to fix the flaw. My wife forced the paint issue when she asked for the cabinets to match the painted trim in our home which was sprayed on. I contacted M/I Homes for the paint contractor to get the exacted paint codes used. Between the paint contractors’ suggestions on how to setup and spray the pieces and Sherwin-Williams on which paint to use for durability the cabinets came out Ok (with a few flaws). All parts were primed and painted using a Wagner Paint Crew Plus and Sherwin-Williams Sherscrub supreme latex paint. The face frames and door panels were pre-painted before assembly and then the final coat was shot on the completed doors. If you decide to spray-paint any cabinetry I strongly suggest renting a commercial sprayer and hanging out with a local painter and learning the tricks of their trade. In my case here I traded several hours of labor with the paint contractor setting up a spray booth in a home garage that was under construction and watched the entire painting process that was used throughout the new home.

The laundry room is often times overlooked in a home, but it is good to have ample storage in the laundry room. Storage would make the room uncluttered, especially if it contains items that are doomed to be cluttered all over the place like linens, newly dried clothes, detergents, fabric conditioner and the like. My wife did the same request to me. Though our laundry room does not have enough space for storage cabinets, but we were able to maximize it and my wife is one happy homemaker.

Very Nice. When the wife is happy, everybody’s happy. I like the back lighting.

Have your say...
