What are the dimensions of this laundry room? - How much space do you have when the washer and dryer doors are open?

Jennifer@ Blissfully Ever After
Our laundry room is a 5' x 6' space and when the doors are open we have about 2.5' to walk in front of them. This is a very small space, but we've done our best to make the most of it.

Many Companies now offer Furniture and Cabinet paints that are a Water based - Alkyd Emulsion. This means it has the durability of oil based paint with the ease of soap and water clean up. I have used the Sico brand with great results!

sealing the cabinets - How did you seal the cabinets so the woodgrain did not show through? We have oak cabinets in our kitchen and I want a cream or glazed type finish, but I do not want any wood grain showing through

Smaller jobs like this one are something most of us can tackle on our own as a weekend project, and the results are so satisfying.
