1 shelf, 2 shelf, 3 shelf, Bunch!

Happy Monday! One of the things on our to do list this weekend was to replace the cabinet in our laundry room with shelves. I have been wanting to do this forever because i've grown out of the cabinets and there has been stuff covering the counter for months. The first few pics are from when we first moved in.
 It never looked this clean except for the first few months we lived here.

Here's the most recent pic but i didn't get a good one of the counter. But you can see from the bottom of the pic that it was a mess.
 So we took the cabinet down.
I spackled and repainted the walls.
Brother and sister came over and helped us, well they weren't just here to help but they were so kind to lend a hand :) 

 The top of the rope is eye bolted into the wall and the rope is knotted at the bottom of each board. 

 And DONE!
 I love it! i have so much more space and i love the look of the rope and raw wood.

I'm thinking about putting a curtain under the counter to hide the washer and dryer.
Like this.

and one more time...  

I actually WANT to do laundry now :) 

Project breakdown
Wood -$36
Rope -$12
Eye Bolts-$3
Trim Nails -$2
Total = $53
BUT we had a $16 gift card which made it only $37!

Wow, looks terrific! I adore lovely laundry rooms. They are usually such under-appreciated spaces. Found you through IHeart Organizing.
