There was a thread on here a few months, maybe even a year ago. Some guy redid his laundry room and built custom cabinets above the washer and dryer. I think he even put bead board in or around the cabinets.
I'd really like to look at that project again, but i cant remember who did it or how to even go about searching for it.
Getting ready to redo my laundry room and I really liked that idea, would like to take another look at it to get some ideas.
