Copy Cat

It's been a while since I last blogged.... sue me!  I hardly have any time or energy during the school year to get anything else done.  But, one one of our first days of summer Diddles made me this laundry basket shelf I have been wanting for months!  We have a good sized laundry room and there has always been a big empty section and I really wanted a shelf of some kind to store stuff in.  We have cabinets above the washer and dryer, but they aren't tall/deep enough for some of the things I needed to tuck away.  I added a shower curtain rod above this little nook to hang clothes to try and what not.  I think this is the perfect piece to use to store pool towels and such.  I originally had a vision of nice green or blue laundry baskets and a white shelf....  HOWEVER, I could only find white laundry baskets and the only paint color we already had enough of was this lovely blue from our bathroom at our previous house. I don't have any during pictures.  But here is what we ended up with at the end of the day (try to ignore the excessive amount of hangers that are waiting to be returned to the cleaners)...
