Laundry Room

This laundry room has a unique potting bench that serves as a laundry hamper on one side, and a pet food storage area on the other. The stone pathway leads through the laundry room as if you were outdoors. Authentic-looking outdoor lanterns give task lighting at this potting bench. The tall cabinet at the far end of this laundry room is actually a refrigerator. Photo credit: Rhonda Kieson

I like the red cabinet. Is it custom made? Or available to order?

I love the backsplash. What is it?

The backsplash on the potting bench is raw cedar that has been planed and also has a light coat of whitewash applied to it. The chevron pattern it creates makes the piece really appealing.

The faucet is a Franz Weigner. There are a few faucet websites that offer this brand. Give it a Google! And good luck with your project!

Thank you so much....I may purchase the glow in the dark stars at Hobby Lobby. Where can I purchase the fiber optic stars?

I found this unit on the Internet. There are several different options of fiber optic lighting, with a price point for every budget. The cost to install the stars does exceed the cost of purchasing them, (well, maybe not if you buy the most expensive option). Everybody loves the way these look!

If you Google "copper sinks" there are several websites that offer small drop-in sinks like this one. The inside dimensions are 14" x 10.5". This sink was purchased about six years ago, and there are many more options available today. The price should be in the $300 - $400 range. Good luck in your search.

Hi Lori,

Several years ago I started looking at potting benches and decided that this one was my favorite. So I modified it somewhat and had my craftsman make this particular one. While I liked the look of all those drawers for seed packets, I decided to have doors instead, but face fronted them to look like individual drawers. The custom paint/glaze/rubthrough finish was also custom. I have always loved this piece, and it is used every day. If you know someone who makes custom furniture pieces, perhaps he/she can design one for you. I do consulting via the internet if you would like some assistance in its design. May I say, you have good taste!

Good luck!
Rhonda Kieson
