Laundry shelf

We've got quite a bit of cabinet storage above our washer and dryer, but not much of it's accessible without a step stool. So Zach built a wall-to-wall shelf beneath the cabinets to hold all the everyday items, like laundry detergent, within easy reach.

(well almost...Zach had already started putting up the shelf supports)

Here's how the shelf looked after it was installed...

Since the shelf sits right on top of the electrical outlet, Zach created a cut-out in the back of the shelf for electrical cords, which comes in handy for our rechargeable battery station. (You may recognize that hat from this post).

Please ignore my sloppy paint job. We're going to paint the walls soon, so I didn't bother keeping the edges clean.


  1. You two never cease to amaze me! Zach's hat has sure seen a lot of action. Your new nest is charming! LYF, mom

  2. You 2 are amazing! So are the adventures of Zach's hat!

  3. Storage space a premium. Great work.
