I think I am nesting. I have this overwhelming urge to remake every storage space we have into a better, more usable (and pretty) storage space.
So we have this closet upstairs. It’s a coat closet, which makes no sense upstairs, and we have stored extra coats in it, and a vacuum cleaner, and it had a ladder in it from the previous owners. Yes, I know that was 6 years ago, but I was lazy, and had no reason to change.
Anyways, here is the before. Please don’t judge the mess. Also, imagine a rod, which I removed.
I made the shelves out of wood I already had from a previous project.
Painted the shelves white with paint I had left over…
And then I got crazy. There is a picture in last month’s House Beautiful of someone’s entryway, which they painted in horizontal stripes. I LOVED IT! I wanted it for my own, but stripes? It’s so scary, and I am too chicken. Or am I? I did it. Stripes in my closet, that is, not my entryway.
Here it is! My new closet! My new STORAGE closet…and all with supplies I had on hand, so this makeover cost nothing!
