Man surprises wife with incredible laundry room renovation (PHOTOS)

When she's not writing, Claire Gillespie can most often be found wiping snotty noses, picking up Lego, taking photos of her cat or doing headstands.

Woman goes out of town for a week and returns to a brand new laundry room thanks to her hard-working hubby

When this guy's wife went out of town for a week he didn't invite all his mates round for a booze up. He got busy transforming the laundry room into a space that's worthy of much more than cleaning clothes.

Imgur user Solz22 recorded the entire renovation process in photos, beginning with the "before" picture.

Pretty dull, right?

Existing cabinets are bland and uninspiring.

That fluorescent light is pretty harsh.

Then snazzy new cabinets are put in, complete with stained counter top (which also hides those pesky plug sockets).

Backsplash adds texture and interest.
