While his wife was away, a loving husband transformed a drab laundry room into a cozy play space that made it feel like a day spa.
Reddit/solz22 It Was Like Death Valley In There
You could almost see the tumbleweed blowing by in the spareness of it all. It was further highlighted by the electrical plugs that were smack dab in the middle of the wall, visibly exposed and unsightly.
Reddit/solz22 In Dire Need Of An Update
The cabinets were cheap, ugly, and frosted with a "hospital white" paint to match the walls. In the harshness of it all, there was definitely a need for a burst of color.

You could almost hear the bright fluorescent lights buzzing, adding to the institutional feel of this prison cell... er, I mean laundry room!
A Splash Of New Paint
However, a bit of earth toned paint started to add some warmth to the surroundings, giving it a slightly more inviting feel.
Reddit/solz22 He Butchered It
The thoughtful hubby bought some cheap unfinished butcher block from the lumber liquidators. This finished piece has already been sanded and its first coat of stain applied.

With a bit of time and elbow grease, the stained butcher block is transformed into a lovely wooden counter top for a brand new corner cabinet.
Reddit/solz22 Starting To Come Together
The new architecture of the room begins to unfold, with subdued desert sandstone becoming the room's color theme. Spot on choice!
Reddit/solz22 Back It Up
A gorgeous stone backsplash is applied to the wall, one "brick" layer at a time. You can finally start to visualize the "stone" walls come together.
Prettier Electrical Outlet
With a brand new backsplash, the re-wiring of the electrical plugs needed to be done, so that everything would look uniformly nice and tidy.
Reddit/solz22 Almost Done
A feeling of coziness begins to set in, as the new cabinets are installed and the backsplash is finally completed.
Reddit/solz22 Beautiful Soft Light
Newly installed track lighting brings a soft and intimate glow to the room. The room almost has a romantic candlelit dinner feel to it!

When the wife gets back from her trip, she is so astonished by the transformation that she almost trips over their poor little pooch!
