Here is her post:
Early in the week I started cleaning my closet. It was a disaster! No organization, too much stuff and just a big mess. I picked a good day to start the Spring cleaning. It ended up being a lot more then spring cleaning though. Isn’t that always how it happens?Before
After I removed everything from the closet, I started sorting. I ended up with a bag of garbage, a bag for Goodwill, and a pile of stuff that just didn’t belong in the closet.
Then I got this bright idea to paint the closet.
Did I stop there? Of course not….
I decided to paint stripes. I have always wanted stripes, and I just couldn’t help myself. I remembered seeing Roeshel over at the DIY Showoff and her Bathroom stripes and thinking how amazing they looked. So off to the Home Depot I went.
I refused to spend a lot of money on this project because after all, it is just a closet. I was brave, and I bought one of their mess up cans of paint. The color was totally workable so I felt comfortable with the choice. I had to add a little white paint to tone it down a little, but other then that it was a good buy for $1.00.and a shoe rack for $2.50
Total cost was about $8.00, not including supplies, most of which I had.Here it is… the $8.00 closet!(This is my main closet downstairs, and I didn’t stage it with my pretty shoes. All shoes in this closet are the ugly, everyday shoes. Sorry.)
I love how there is almost nothing up here now. Ignore the uncovered doorbell thingy on the wall.You can see the huge color difference from my main walls, and my closet. I kinda don’t mind it like this. It makes me feel like I have a mini mudroom or something behind those doors. 🙂See how one of the doors is off kilter? It fell off in the process and I couldn’t figure out how to get it back on track.The other side of my closet, angled walls. This was a very cramped space to paint in.
I hate to do this. But Sindy never responded to winning the Cutting Edge Stencil giveaway. Sad for Sindy but good news for…
Random.org chose another winner – #73.
