I can finally mark another big house project off the list: we finished our closet! Back in January one of the racks fell, so we had a carpenter come in to help make better use of the space. (He also did our laundry room. See "C" is for Cabinets.) He did some amazing cabinetry work and was super fast--done in less than three days. John and I did all of the painting and hardware. Of course, my mom pitched in on the manual labor too. Thanks, mom! We stayed with the existing paint color to keep with the rest of the house (even though the after pics look yellow-ish from my iPhone).
This week I had the glass installed for the shoe cabinets, so now I won't have dusty heels when I go to DC for work. I also bought some slimline hangers at Bed Bath and Beyond, and they allow for lots more hanging space (and look coordinated too...hello OCD). I love that all of the racks are measured to our clothes, and John even has a side cabinet for all of his belts and ties. We also have a TON of storage space at the top. It took us more than eight months to finish the project, but the wait was totally worth it. Here are some before and afters.
The glass for the shoe cabinets has some design and distortion to it.
I apologize for all of the yellowish iPhone pics. We sent the good camera on safari with my mom and dad to South Africa. I can't wait to see the photos they take! See Tales from the Tulls.
