Next Re-Stylin' Project - Our Master Closet

Hey there! How was everyone's weekend??  I'm sure it was great! :)  I started working on a new project...and it's something I should have started a long time ago (because we have lived here for almost 2 years).  My name is Kristine and I have a confession to make...My husband and I have a farely large master closet in our bathroom and we don't utilize it.  At all.  I know, I know.  Don't hate me.  I guess I should explain.  We "use" the closet but not the way we should.  It's more of a place to dump stuff.  I mean, I have always told myself  "Self, you are going to clean this closet out and really utilize it." I never got around to it, until now.  I think I put it off so long because it's pretty scary.  I didn't even take a before picture because I was to embarassed to show you! But the previous owners did a real number on it.  There are so many scuffs on the walls, holes, old nails, old anchors, etc.  And the way they have the wire shelves up on the wall were allllll wrong.  So I took everything down and started from scratch.

The picture above is the entrance into the closet and the shelves you see are my side of the closest (the longest & biggest part) :)

The picture above is Scott's side of the closet.  It's perfect for him.

This is our new laundry system.  It's technically for shoes but since being a stay at home mom now, I have decided to down size my shoes...I know, its crazy.  Here are some of them below (not including all my boots..)

So I am putting some in storage because they are considered my "work" shoes and some are going to Goodwill.  Anyways, I am going to use three sections of that shelving for our whites, darks and towels and sheets.  Luckily the baskets fit perfectly onto the racks and this new laundry system has been working out so well for us so far.

Just for kicks, look at all the awful scuffs and mess all over the wall that we are working with...

YUCK.  Anywhoo -When Sherwin Williams was having their 40% off sale a month ago, we decided to go ahead and buy some paint for the closet and we are painting it PINK.  I am SO excited.  Scott was totally ok with anything I wanted.  I really want it to feel girly and feminine and I am so lucky that I have a husband who totally doesn't care.  We have recently decided that we are going to invest in some nice shelving system from Home Depot.  We are going to hopefully buy them tomorrow. :)

So far we have pulled all the shelving off, re-patched allllllllllllllllll the holes, sanded them down, painted all the trim a crisp white and I have now started painting!  We are on a roll!  Now we need to finish painting and order our new shelving system! Yay!  Stay tuned!
