I've never had an actual laundry room before, so when we got this house, I was pretty excited about having the extra space. I've mentioned before my visions for this room were more magazine-like than functional, but with some compromising from both me and the man, we are making it work for each of us.
My pantry shelves were bowing from the weight of our canned goods and I wanted an overflow area anyhow, so Nathan put this shelf in the laundry room/mud room for some extra storage. Also, while I was out of town last weekend, he painted and installed a shelf in this cabinet for me. I wanted something pretty, but we were using the cabinet that was in the house before we bought it. Using some materials we already had on hand and some time, he made it exactly like I was envisioning. I'll find some door knobs and it will be good to go! I'm SO thankful for this space!!
