10:40 am
frustrated all the time. i don't even like necessarily to go back in that space because it's so chaotic. the washer and drier don't even fit in the space that was fibui for it. i need help getting that space organized so i can use my attention for my kids. >> if we can gain some organization with a diy prom, fitting the washer and drier into the space that wasn't large enough and adding some color in here. so i'm hoping that we can make this pretty for her by the end of the day. >> i think we're going to make it stunning day. >> yeah? >> yeah. >> get over on your side. >> okay, anna, come on in. >> oh, my gosh! oh, my gosh! >> do you like it?

10:43 am
it's perfect. >> don't forget, especially if you're doing this in a laundry room, it defeats the purpose to not clean it because it is greasy, so do that first. >> and you did the table under here? >> you can get all of this at any home improvement store and the big box stores will cut it and threat it for you. >> this is important. they will cut it for you for free and usually thread it. so all you have to do is put it together and then you have a table. >> so a not very handy man, >> it looks like you actually did something. >> absolutely. but then this project also with the galvanized steel, it's really important to know that -- >> oh, wow. >> suspended cabinet reand shelving is huge now because it opens up the space and makes it really clean. if you want a glam look, like the laundry room, we painted it gold but you don't have to do that.
