New Shelves in Storage room
I don't think I can squeeze another inch of storage out of this room...we are at full capacity!
The curtain and the large counter are awesome!! Empty boxes, bulk purchases, extra bowls, thrifty purchases and other miscellaneous things often get dumped onto the counter en route to their final destination. That's ok with me! They are never there very long! I sweep them into place whenever I get a chance. It never takes more than five minutes to make this room pristine again!
It may not look like much, but this room is a hard worker!
Summary & Materials:
14 - 10 x 12 white brackets ($2.28 each)
3 - 96" boards cut down (free) to four boards in the following sizes: 42", 42", 71 3/4", 71 3/4" , ($19.97 each)
2 - boxes of wood screws (on hand)
This project took 1 1/2 hours of my younger brother's time (he volunteered you guys!).
It also took three separate trips to Lowes. The first time to get the wrong brackets and the wrong shelves. The second time to switch to 8x10" brackets, wrong size again! The third time to switch the boards (the two 73" melamine shelves and the one 96" cut down to two 42" boards that we originally bought, were different thicknesses), and to switch to 10x12" brackets.
ps. The shelves at Home Depot cost $28.99, so we decided to use Lowes for this project.
pss. I also work out in there!
