I consider myself a macho kind of guy. I watch sports and love action movies. I can grunt and burp with the best of them. Although I always wanted to be a little handier around the house. My daughter thinks I can fix anything. The other day she asked me to fixed a popped balloon (I did fix it enough that she was satisfied).
All this being said I know my wife has wanted more shelf space. We have been on getting our food storage in better shape so if a disaster does happen we have a better chance of surviving. The only problem with all the extra food storage our kitchen and pantry was running out of space. Being the brilliant man and awesome husband I am I mad a plan.
We went to Lowes the other day and started looking at shelves. The shelves were actually on sale so that might have been a sign we were on the right path. Since the stuff was on sale we bought it and threw it in the car and went home. I started pulling out all my tools so I was ready to get down to some serious machoism.
Here is the before photo. I know awesome curtains and the non matching washer and dryer. You aren’t supposed to notice that you are supposed to notice all the empty space above it. That is where I planned to put the shelves. With the help of my two girls we started putting them up. On girl was more helpful than the other but I won’t point any fingers.
After some labor and not too many mistakes we had success. We put up our shelves and totally increased our storage area. As proud as I am of my macho installation I think my wife is even happier with the results. See for yourself. I know you are impressed but I am not taking side work just yet.
