New and improved laundry room

A while back I posted my updated laundry room.  In the meantime I got a new washer and dryer and finished the final touches.  Here is a recap of what the cabinets looked like when we moved in.  This is a picture of a cabinet in my master bath as I forgot to take before pictures of the laundry room.  All of our cabinets in the house looked like this.

Now here are some pictures of the cabinets after I painted them.

My hubby built all the new shelves and we installed a new countertop and faucet.  Unfortunately we had to keep the small sink as it was made custom for this cabinet.  All the other sinks were too big.

Now for the updated pictures.  I got a new front load washer and dryer.  Where have they been all my life.  I love them!!

I added a few new decor items and now I am finally done.  Check off another room on the list.  This shoe bench has been in my family as long as I can remember.  It was about the same color of the cabinets and pretty beat up so I painted it.
