Just like everyone else, I am always looking for attractive storage solutions. Over Christmas break, I cleaned out and reorganized my project supplies, paint and tools, once again trying to keep them together in one location( How many times have I done this). Since my laundry room is in my basement, it’s a pretty good size and I recently made some upgrades including installing a large utility sink and removing the old vinyl floor and painting the concrete( more to come on that in a later post).
However, I’m still coming up short for storage. I’m planning to use pegboard for my tools and brushes. Something like this
But I still need shelving for my numerous cans of paint. And since it is my laundry room, and I spend a fair amount of time in there, I would like it to be pleasant to look at, at least not unattractive. Industrial shelving makes sense, it’s easy and affordable. Is there a way to make it look not so,… well, industrial, utilitarian?
So I’m asking all of you DIYer’s, Painters, and Crafters out there for suggestions. I’m open to anything as long as it is budget minded, practical and easy on the eyes. What organization, storage system do you use?
I have to say after I saw this idea on Pinterest, I’ve had a hard time getting it out of my mind. I mean really, how expensive can brass plating be? ( I don’t think I want to know).
