Closet Before and After

My new closet is installed and I love it!!!
Things got a little shaky last week after the painters came...

I was not thrilled with the outcome. Colors, great. I especially love the blue on the ceiling but the cedar looked awful after it was painted. All the flaws were really obvious. Yikes!

I did like it better than before but it was not the smooth, even finish I wanted so I did what I always do...I panicked. After a good hissy fit I felt much better. I decided to wait and see the closet installed and then I could add backing or mirrors to cover any areas I didn't like. it is...

Ta da!
It's not a huge closet but I feel like it has doubled in size!!

It brings me joy.

Especially compared to this before!

And now with clothes.

I hung this mirror on a whim. The wall where it is hanging will be covered by a mirror cut to fit the size and will really open up the closet. I'll show you some pictures tomorrow...

A little closer...

I still need some baskets or boxes for accessories and belts and maybe a small stool to reach the top shelf. I also need new hangers...and maybe some new never ends!!!

I used California Closets and was really pleased with the service. If you are in the Wilmington area contact Jennifer Wells at:

  2. This is a great investment in your sanity. Congratulations!
