When we bought the #1905Cottage, the only way to access the laundry room was from the front porch. Sometime in the 1950’s or 1960’s the then-owners had taken part of the porch and turned it into a laundry room. So it had no heat and the floor was the concrete cement porch. When we remodeled the house, we cut a hole in the west wall of the kitchen and opened up an entrance to the laundry room. We also closed the doorway on the front porch and replaced the door with a window.
I love the large pantry/laundry room that is acessed directly from the kitchen now. And in my mind I always envisioned a row of shelves on the right-hand side of the room for a large pantry area. I had seen industrial pipe shelving projects and I thought it would be perfect to compliment the beadboard walls in the laundry/pantry room.
So when Lowes gave us the option of creating an “Organization” post for January, I knew it was time to tackle this project. Here’s a little preview of the room. I will be posting the full #1905Cottage Pantry reveal this week!

Love all of these pictures, Jen! You found some that I hadn’t seen before. 🙂 I guess great minds think alike because I did industrial shelves for my January Lowe’s post too. HaHa But I decided to change mine, and I am doing rolling storage crates instead. I will be sharing my shelves in about a week on my blog. I did them in my boys room, and I LOVE them! Can’t wait to see yours! xoxo
I can’t wait to see your shelves Traci!! I just love the look of the pipes and wood.

Love this idea! We are in the middle of re-doin the laundry area, and there is still the cement block walls in that room. I’ve been brain storming as to hang shelving…. I’m digging this idea!
I think this look would be amazing in a laundry room. Good luck with your room Shelly!
Wow- such cool ideas for the industrial look! Hope I get to see yours in person someday. xoxo
I would love that Mique!! You are welcome to stay at the cottage anytime you are in Utah. That would be so fun!
We did our pipe shelving a little differently. A lot less material = a lot less cost.
Your pantry turned out so great!! Very smart. I pinned it. Thanks for sharing it with us!!!
Definitely the shelving with the built in desks. That is genius. Sharing on my FB page today, I love all of them!
Thanks Karen! I love the idea of adding desks too. And I love this industrial look.
Have a great day!!
