Week three already of the One Room Challenge…only two weeks to go to finish our bedroom, and several projects still need to be tackled. But we have the open closet that we love so much again.
Apparently, I have lost the “before” photos, but they looked like any other closet: a single metal rod and a shelf above it. The shelves were too high to be very useful for 5′ me…I usually just ended up throwing things up there and hoping they landed. And they each had two sliding doors.
Of course, we removed the doors first, then the tracks (still have one upper track to take down in the right closet).
Then we put up the shelves and the Hubs hung the rod with some rope.
We need a tiny bit more shelf space, as you can see on top of the dresser:
So we’re putting another shelf up in the right closet, and maybe a face-out for my dresses or sweaters too. The dogs’ sofa is shoved into the closet until we get their replacement built and set up. That should be next week’s post. But you never know with me.
The light had the typical pull cord, and it was original, so it was a little yellow and stiff, and of course, not very pretty. So it got replaced with pink paper beads. It was actually a long necklace that I never wore anymore, but here, we get to use it daily!
I was originally hoping to remove the trim, center divider and cut back the walls so it was just a clean, flush cut out, but that was too much of a project at the moment. Hopefully in the future!
The closet still needs some tweaking and some styling, but we’re so happy to have it open again like the last house.
And hopefully next week I’ll have some quality photos to share too…after we moved back home, I put my camera battery in a very safe and logical place. Apparently too safe and not as logical as I thought. So they’ve all been taken with my phone for a couple weeks. 🙁 If you were me, where would you have put a camera battery?
