lagniappe: closet

Since we are on the subject of our bedroom, I thought I'd show you one of the greatest parts of this house: the wonderful walk-in closet/dressing area. Being that this house was built in 1937, you would expect very little closet space. But the previous owner of this house, who also was the one who had it built, was a woman after my own heart. This wonderful dressing area has three large walk-in closets attached to it.

Before, the closet had a built in dresser that was pretty old and not a place you would want to store much of anything. We tore it out and built a large sheving unit. We also Kilz'd all of the pink and painted it a fresh taupe to contrast with our blue bedroom. It smells so much fresher! Paint can cover a multitude of sins, and it took a lot of it in here. We spent a whole two weeks working in this closet alone. And now, it looks like this:

We also added a door after tearing out the existing door frame that was built for a very short person. Now it's clean, organized, and a true dressing area. We also set up an ironing board in here that stays out all the time. Very handy for my husband who has to wear pressed dress clothes every day.

Just a little something extra for you! Have a great Friday!
