I had been sitting on the fence about keeping a small room of the laundry room separate or taking it down, I had delusions of using it a wine room, more likely would have been tool storage. It was simply really old dry wall needed to be patched and repaired as there were so many holes. We decided to take it down and I am glad we did as insulating was so much easier. The room looks so much better too. We definitely will not complete it until the spring I wonder if there is a competition for winning a renovation for ugliest laundry room as this would be a contender, my kitchen too!
