Laundry Room Makeover

4This project was submitted by Angelo to the 2008 Great Canadian Contest
Well, it was time for the old laundry room to make way for a whole new look.

Thanks to the wide choice of Windsor plywoods, veneers and mouldings (not to mention some nifty tiling work), I was able to transform my laundry room into something worth getting dirty for!

Using plywood and 2×4 I raised the floor about 4.5″ to create a custom-built pedestal for the washer/dryer. I then decided to add some more countertop workspace by again framing with 2×4 and plywood for a custom-built tumbled marble countertop.

The floor was tiled with granite and natural stone and a mosaic was framed in the center by the stone. The walls were troweled on and hand-polished with a “Venetian Plaster” (shiny marble-looking plaster) then stenciled with a leaf pattern in gold paint.

Wood veneers and mouldings were added to the cabinetry and door to add even more decorative elements. There’s also a pull-out ironing board center (not shown in photos) which was veneered/stained to match cabinetry.

Live Edge Hickory Fireplace Mantel

bpr-mantel11The following project was completed by Blasty Paint & Renovation. (Sent in from Windsor Plywood Langley location)

The mantle was constructed of Live edge Hickory purchased from the  Langley store.  The Hickory has had the barked removed, machined, sanded, stained, and finished.  I choose a polyurethane rub coating to finish due to the high wearing, durability and beauty of this product. The face of the fireplace has been finished with a split face travertine tile and pencil tile around the fireplace face.  This is a face-less fireplace, which results in the black trim around the fireplace being covered by tile.  I really enjoyed completing this project for the client.  They are ecstatic with the final product.

“My wife and I spend the latter part of summer and fall building this sun room off the side of our house. There used to be an old deck there so we decided to make it a usable room. The rafters and glass were purchased fromm Pacific Sun Rooms but pretty well everything else from the sub floor to the tongue and groove pine and cedar Sun Room 037laminate flooring and siding came from Windsor. I got to know the employees pretty well. We even insulated the walls and ceiling and it all came from Windsor in Fort St. John B.C. They are a great bunch of people.”
