under construction....


Yesterday I shared a rare empty space.  This is right by our garage door....
that's it to the left painted green.

We have a tiny, tiny, tiny hallway inside that door
and have always needed someplace to "put stuff"
when we come home from shopping.

That third shelf down is where the grocery bags will go
when we unload the car.


As DIY projects go this one is easy peasy.

I had the pre-primed boards cut to size,
bought standards, and shelf brackets.

We screwed the standards right into that wood wall and used the 
holes under the brackets to attach them to the shelves.

We do not want the shelves toppling off the wall
when they are loaded with grocery bags.

We used L brackets to attach those shutters
on the end to the shelves so it is
sturdy also.


A fun fact.  That vintage box is the inspiration for my
blog and etsy shop name.

Of course, I have do do some decorating on the shelves.

So far I have painted them "White Dove"
and starting trying out some things
to see how they look.

Stop back tomorrow for more progress.

This little corner is still "under construction."
