Spiffing Up the Laundry Room: Adding Shelves

Since I'm always green with jealousy over cute shelves that some of you girls have,
 I decided to add some in my laundry room.
These were added above the sink.


To be honest, I bought the wood and corbels last summer and just now finished this project. 
Because I'm all DIY like that. :)


I really love them!
This project cost less than $30 including paint.

The goodies on the shelves were popped up there in about 20 seconds and likely won't stay this way long.
Won't it be fun to change them out for the seasons like Andrea does?


I love the cute curly corbels.
So happy with this project.

The shelves look great! I love a fun laundry room. We spend enough time there, it should be a fun place!

When I wait to do a project like that, and then do it, I always say, "what took me so long?" I love shelves and wish I could have more!

I love those shelves all prettied up. Wish my laundry room was stylish, but it's not. Purely functional and very small.

Betty W said...

It is so lovely. Just the Spring we need with these cold and snowy days.

Kathleen Grace said...

This is so pretty! I love all the springy green and bird items. Can't wait to see the curtains:>)

You are going to have fun playing with those shelves!!

Angela Ryder said...

Very cute!! I had my hubby put shelves up in my laundry room too so I'd have more storage.....but all I do is decorate them! LOL!! No extra storage for me....just decorating space! Priorities, right!??!!~~Angela

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Very pretty, Stacey! Sometimes something simple like this makes a nice difference. I'd like to add some shelves like this to our bathroom.

This is so cute, Stacy!! Anything to make the chores more pleasant. I wish I had something other than a dark basement room! :(

XO,

I think laundry rooms should heaver pretty things because we live in the (or at least I do).

I love the fancy little brackets, too! I'm pinning them onto my fun with brackets board.

April said...

My laundry room can use some shelving, too. I really love yours and the knick knacks you've added, too. Two thumbs up all the way! :)

Elizabeth N said...

I love those cute little birds! They are all so sweet.

I also like the shelves. I have shelves above my washer/dryer but they are very functional and bolted into the basement cider block. No where near as pretty as yours. :)

Olive said...

So adorable. I am utterly slow at projects myself. I did just paint some outdoor pots though. xo, olive

They look wonderful! You'll have so much fun displaying pretties on these new shelves! Enjoy your week my friend!

Art and Sand said...

I love your little shelf and can't wait to see the changes you make over the seasons.

I would love to have a cute shelf in our laundry area, but it is just a section of our garage. I just tell myself that I am there to throw the clothes in the washer and dryer and put up with the boring space.

Cute shelves! I love changing mine out :)

Very sweet, Stacey! Shelves are so much more practical in the laundry room, not to mention prettier! And I love the little birdie painting. :)

Kristi said...

Stacie, they look fantastic! Love them!! :)

Aimee Lane said...

You are so right -- perfect print for your laundry room!!! (And speaking of perfect -- your dad's old house is amazing). I hope you have a great week Stacey!!! XO, Aimee

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

Well, I don't know why you would ever change that darling display! And I'm all jealous that you have this awesome laundry room, and a SINK in there :)) Love the corbels, too, it's all good stuff going on!! (Or you could be like me and still have Valentine's everywhere, 10 days later)
xoxoxo!!

Gypsy Heart said...

Looks great! You're very talented ~

Are you teaching this year..??

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

The shelves look great, Stacey! I want to add another shelf in our laundry room (and some curtains to hide everything that will be on them!)

BeachGypsy said...

The shelves look great! Love it! That is such a pretty bird picture! I am a new reader, love your blog! I blog from beautiful Charleston--stop by when you can!

Melissa@daisymaebelle.com said...

Your shelves look great! My poor laundry room stays a disaster...it's more of a walk-in closet than a room...and with doing laundry for 5 people, it has no hope of being this cute! Life to the full! Melissa @ DaisyMaeBelle

Shelia said...

Hi Stacey! I do love your new little shelves and I love how you've dressed them too! Those are some mighty pretty little corbels too!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Love your little shelves and I especially love anything that has corbels. I have several pairs around my house and yet I'm still always drawn to them. Very pretty.
