Laundry Room Fluff

I am trying to do a little work around my house to get ready for Christmas decorating.  I LOVE decorating for Christmas and can't wait to get started!  I have made a list of some things I am going to "try" to get done before I start decorating.  I started last week in the laundry room.  While I am not completely finished, I though I would share what I did get done.  
I have front loaders, and I wanted to add shelves above to put some "pretty things".  Anything to make the laundry room an inviting part of the house.  Maybe if I make it really nice, someone else in the house will want to spend more time in there and do some laundry.  Did I mention I live in a house with all guys?  No matter what I do, that isn't happening.  You can see they are full of laundry right now.  
Anyway, I bought some shelves at Lowes and brackets to install.

I gathered up all of the tools I would need for the install and went to work!
I am learning to use a lot of tools, and trying to start doing more and more things around here by myself.  I really enjoy it, and feel pretty proud of myself when the projects work out well.
This project was pretty easy, just required some patience.
Viola!  Much better, and I can use the top of the washer and dryer to fold clothes.  Better go and get busy, that laundry isn't going to fold itself!

    1. Hi Poppy! Thank you for being a follower. That's exciting for a newbie like me! Thank you also for your sweet comment. I totally agree, if we have to do laundry, we can at least enjoy the space. So nice meeting you also. Look forward to "talking" to you again.
      Have a great weekend!
