Shelf in the laundry room

First I have to say "I AM IN LOVE"....with my new washer and dryer. You know after using the same one for 23 years, you just don't realize what you're missing.
I got busy on the shelf over the pegs in laundry/mudroom. I bought a 1x8x6 board at Lowe's.
The shelf will need to make a 90 degree turn, so I cut the pieces to fit.
On each end I cut off the corners so there wouldn't be a sharp edge sticking out.
These triangle pieces turned out to be perfect for the shelf brackets. I drew out the design of the shelf bracket.
Cut it out with the scroll saw.
I needed three so I found another scrap piece to cut the last one out of. I drilled holes in them to fit the screw into.
Here are the brackets in place.
I put the wood plugs in the holes and painted them white. Here they are finished.

I think I better run back to JoAnn's and see if they still have those cute baskets. I need one more, don't you think?
