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?

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