So the saga continues. I hope I haven't ruined that song by Michael Parks for you forever! LOL!
The closet received a fresh coat of paint yesterday. My photos are making the paint color look more green than the creamy yellow that it is. It was paint I had left over from prior projects and is the color of practically all the walls in the house now. The color is Burnt Candle by Dutchboy.
My idea for redoing this closet has a threefold purpose. # 1 to get rid of the ugly closet doors. #2 to add some interest to this long, boring, useless hallway. Well, I guess it isn't entirely useless. One does need to travel it's length when accessing the bathroom, bedrooms and office. #3 to find a home for this big cupboard in the dining area. You can see the freshly painted closet to the right which is about 5 or 6 feet from the cupboard.
So there you have it. My bright idea... to move that cupboard into the closet!
Before you think I've gone completely bonkers... let me show you the end result...
So what do you think? Hubby still has to make some trim for the closet opening. He will be using the boards from the framework around the closet I tore off and ripping them to fit the new opening.
I have a small collection of Redwing Stoneware pieces that have always resided in this cupboard. The cupboard also houses stuff like recipes, pharmaceuticals, dishes and serving pieces not used everyday.... a few more odds and ends I like to keep handy but out of sight. So in spite of losing some coat hanging space, the cleaning supplies and the vacuum cleaner's former storage space, I think I am getting used to the new use for this closet.
As with any change that I make around here it usually comes with a new set of issues to deal with.
More on those later.
I will show you what was behind that big cupboard.
Like I said... a new set of issues.
How's your week shaping up?
