Calling it Home's One Room Challenge! Let's get this laundry room done!

OK, since I posted my goals for the laundry/mudroom I have done nothing towards them.  I have been thinking about and planning this room for about a year.  It is time to get it done!  And what better motivation than Linda's, from Calling it Home, One Room Challenge!  Here's the deal, Linda provides a platform for multiple bloggers to share their progress towards the completion of one room over a 6 week time frame!  She also recruits 20 more design bloggers to share their projects as well, and you know there are some great ones!

So, I know I posted a plan for the laundry room a few weeks ago but this is the challenge I need to make it a priority.  We are going to Ikea this weekend to get some of the necessary items and will be ordering everything else we need so we can get on it.

Here's the plan:

Tear out the existing pantry closet and install base cabinets and open shelving.

Replace the bathroom vanity that is in there with a custom, skirted cabinet and larger sink with commercial style sprayer.

Install a counter top above the washer and dryer for folding and replace the existing rod with a wall cabinet and a new rod and shelving.

A new base cabinet just inside the back door to provide space to store a recycling bin.

Install new wood look, vinyl plank floors and repaint the room.

And all in 6 weeks!  I hope I get it done!  You know I will be following all of the OTHER PROJECTS too!  There are going to be some great ones!
