Sharing today an update on our laundry room renovation with a tutorial on how to make industrial style pipe shelving.
In this next installment of the laundry room renovation, we want to talk closets and storage.
Depending on who you ask, some people in our house might suggest that I have too many shoes. I will neither confirm nor deny this allegation. I will, however, say that a lot of thought was put into this space because if there just happened to be a pair or two of shoes that needed a nice home, I think they would appreciate having a dedicated area all to their own.
The industrial stype pipe shelving we’re showing off today has been the only part of this closet that we haven’t had to discuss endlessly.
These shelves are so, so easy to put up. We used 2×10 boards and a mish mash of industrial piping to throw it together. If you’ve read our industrial style curtain rod, it’s a pretty similar process.
After the shelves went up, we went back and forth about additional storage. Should we put cube storage on the other side of the coat rack? What about a bench? Or a cude underneath the coat rack and leave the other side completely open?
We decided on keeping just the coat rack with storage above and also installing a piece of barnwood to hang two more industrial bins from. The boots will go underneath the coat rack and we’ll build a short wooden stand – just something right above the floor so the dirty shoes aren’t directly on the tile.
After all the back and forth, everyone is happy, including the shoes 🙂
All our best,
