Laundry makeover - Room to give the dog a haircut!


Laundry makeover - Room to give the dog a haircut!

The original laundry for the house with a tiny bench and nowhere to fold clothes, hang delicates, and most importantly, give the pooch a haircut!


So ripped all but the main cupboard shells out, painted the doors etc with Duluxe Renovation range, installed a new benchtop.

I put an inbuilt shelf frame up and lined with ply and painted (super strong!), installed a new sink and tap and finally hooked the washer and dryer up.

Happy how it all came together in the end!

( I did everything myself except the tiling. I chickened out last minute when I realised that 1. I've never tiled before and 2. Tiling is one job you can't "hide" mistakes with! I didn't want all my work done to date look ruined with bad tiling :). I did remove the tiles and re-plastered walls where I had removed)

Re: Laundry Makeover - Room to give the dog a haircut!

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @mangoaqua. It's sensational to have you join us, and many thanks for sharing this wonderful project.


You've achieved quite a stunning transformation, and I trust you're exceptionally proud of your efforts. Good call on the tiles. As you mentioned, it can be best left to the professionals if you're not confident. I had my first foray into tilling several weeks back, and I must say, it was slightly more complicated than what I was expecting.


It's hard to truly appreciate how amazing bench space is until you've got it. Once you have it, it's hard to imagine how you coped before. I'm sure your pup is enjoying their new grooming salon.


Well done.

Nice work on this @mangoaqua. Can you pass on the source for your wooden benchtop? It looks very solid and gives a warm feel to the makeover.

Good to have an elevated flat space to place the pooch for haircuts - I use a solid outside table so I can walk around to easily access all sides without having to turn the dog.
