Room Renovation: Laundry Room Week 3
Its week 3 of this laundry room adventure yall & I have to admit I did not get as much done as I originally wanted. We have been crazy busy enjoying all the fun fall activities & have been slacking on the renovation, but we will get back on track this weekend! This week we did complete the shelves so I should get some points! I am so happy with them too & our kitchen table is back to being clutter-free, I mean except for the normal clutter of course. I did buy the wood for this weekend’s projects: DIY sign & drying rack ladder! So let’s take a look at our modern farmhouse laundry room shelving!

- Minwax Stain
- Pine Tread Boards (we used 1-1/2in X 8in pieces)
- Flanges (I found a box of 10 here)
- Nipples (will I ever be an adult & not laugh at this name for pipe…probably not)
- Tape Measure
- We decided to use pine treads as our shelves because they were lightweight but still had the thickness we wanted! Once we got it home I stained it with 2 coats of Minwax Golden Pecan. I love the natural look of that stain, it was exactly what I envisioned.
- Next, we measured & marked where we wanted our shelves to go. We marked them to go in the middle of the wall & just played with the height until we were happy. This is where my very blonde moment came in… I originally marked the wall after I painted where the studs were, then I transferred the marks to the shiplap as we nailed that up. However, when I started painting the shiplap I completely forgot to remark & painted right over them (sigh). Luckily I could see the marks in the progress photos & we winged it from there! These shelves need to be in studs because the hardware is heavy, so be sure to find them!
- I screwed all the pipe pieces together in this order: flange->nipple->elbow->flange. Then, we mounted the first pipe set to the wall. We placed the board on top of the pipe to make sure we were level & screwed in the second pipe set. After the pipe was connected to the wall we screwed the second flange into the boards. We repeated this process for the top shelf also.
- Finally, time to decorate! I have been scouring Amazon for some budget-friendly decor, you can check out all my favorites here! I am still waiting for some of my decor to come in so here is our progress photo!
I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! It definitely gives the room that modern farmhouse vibe I have been craving. We still have lots of projects to go before our big reveal & only 3 short weeks to complete everything, so its crunch time people!
