Diary of a Laundry Room (continued)

At the end of July we scheduled our last big overhaul.

The laundry room.......

It needed an update in a big way!  And updated it was......

There was just one project left to do.

I wanted my dad to make some shelving to go above the counter we had installed.  Dad is the shelving king.  He made and installed my kitchen shelves a few years ago, so I knew I could save some cash if I had pa do this instead of our contractor.

Yesterday was the big day!  Pa came over and worked his magic....

Now all I have to do is stage those babies!

You know this hoarder has plenty of vintage tchotchkes tucked away to put on those shelves!

And that's the best part.

The staging.  Not necessarily the hoarding.

Although that has its benefits.

  1. Looks great!! What a wonderful dad, too! Can't wait to see how you stage it.

  2. Oh wow. That is quite the transformation. It looks so bright and cheery. I can't wait to see everything staged.

  3. Nice. I like the brackets you picked out

  4. Wow, think of all the stuff you can fit on those shelves! They fit so well with the rest of the room, nice choice.

  5. The shelves look great! I agree, this is the fun part. I love shopping around my own house for things like this. Have fun!

  6. Yay! I can't wait to see how it looks all staged. :-)

  7. Awesome!!!! Can't wait to see how you set it up!!! Also, I love those curtains.

    1. THANK YOU!!!! Vintage feedsack material I'd been hoarding!!!!

  8. GIRL!!!!! It looks AMAZING!!!!! Congrats! I can't wait to see how you stage the shelves too. WOOHOO for a new laundry room!


  9. Can you dad make me some shelves too? ;) Make sure to post the finished product!

  10. that looks so great! If only I had enough space in my house that I could have a decorative shelf for staging in my laundry room- be sure to mark that one down on your Thanksgiving list
