First of all, I didn't hear that anyone picked up on my little play on words for the title of the post. Too far out there?
(If you missed part one, check it out HERE.)
There was some really big news that may have included this:
Grandnugget is due in September!
Back to our regularly-scheduled program. And a very long, picture-heavy post. And several correctly-hyphenated words.
And a closet that may have looked like this. Now keep this picture in your mind the rest of our time together.
My secret wardrobe (hiding mysterious goods from Zappos, TJ Maxx, and Amazon) is nearly complete. We'll call it complete for the purposes of this post.
And we'll call it the "master closet makeover" to make Googlers happy.
After painting every single wall in this house back in 2013, I suffered post-traumatic paint disorder and couldn't face ever picking up a roller again. But the lure of creativity, expression, and the desire to get my undies out of the piano bench prevailed.
The fact it's a very small room may have contributed.
The design began with this unassuming rug I purchased at Tuesday Morning. I had no idea where I was going to use it when I bought it, but I was mesmerized by all the purdy colors.
I started with the ceiling. I've never painted a ceiling an actual color before. Have you? Do you love it? I love mine! The color is Moon Glass (I love that name!) by Behr.
Then I moved on to a soft yellow (Risotto by Behr) for the walls, but I wanted a white stripe at the top to separate it from the blue-green ceiling.
No likey. And no picture.
So I added another stripe in dark blue (Tidal by Behr) that pulls in the color of my curtains. I originally made the curtains for my bedroom, but that's a gruesome tale for another day.
I did a little re-work on Phil's old chest of drawers:
We hung up my clothes racks and other do-dads, and we're nearly finished. So come on in, take a look around, and try something on.
Mini-Myoo will greet you.
Mini Myoo is sitting in the pass-through to the laundry room. He watches me throw my dirties into the basket on the other side.
Objects in photo aren't representative of entire collection.
Don't be afraid.
You can see its original makeover HERE.
See those plates? Those were gifts when my babies were born. They're not babies anymore!
Those are scarves in the hanging basket, and now that I see this picture, they just look like a hot mess. And those are my 2 marathon medals hanging below. Because where else am I going to display them?
And around the corner back to the door. See the arrow? I have hooks there for me to hang tomorrow's clothes.
Otherwise, I would never be ready on time.
To be brutally honest, more often than not, tomorrow's clothes usually look suspiciously like last night's pajamas.
Last but not least, we converted the recessed can light fixture and added this!
Isn't she purdy and sparkly?
One more thing, and the reason it's not quite finished. See this big, empty wall where this measly little shoe rack sits? Philly is going to build me a wall of shelves for my shoes. Woohoo!
Let's not leave you with that boring picture.
Have you prettied up a closet before? Do you love it? I hope so.
