She installed a faux marble countertop (always nice to have countertop space in the laundry room!) and gave it a glass-like finish using an epoxy. By going faux, the countertop is light and easy to remove, which is handy if/when they ever need to access the pipes/hookups for the laundry.

There’s a hanging bar above the countertop with lots of hangers and plenty of room to hang clothes.

But wait, there’s more! Ronda wouldn’t forget to have a place to iron clothes. She added a fold-down ironing board on the wall that is hidden by cabinet doors when not in use. When fully down, the ironing board even swivels!

The outside of the laundry room has a barn-style door that slides outside of the room and has a window in the top half with the word “Laundry” on it. It’s an old door, re-used (a door her son had found and used for a haunted house). She planked the outside wall to make the apparatus to hang the door look better. So cool!

Ronda’s husband notes that whenever an idea like this strikes his wife, they go out and look for items and pieces at 2nd-hand stores, garage sales, and even dumpsters. As a one-income family with 6 kids, they have to find a way to make it work!

They’ve got a work room where they can saw wood, etc., so it helps to have a place to get the work done.
