With the possibility of putting the cottage on the market, we’ve been doing a few projects around the house. I mentioned a few weeks ago that we’re going to be installing butcher block countertops. Those are waiting in the garage for an open day or two in our schedule. In the meantime other smaller projects that can be worked on in the evening are being checked off the list.
The closet in our bedroom in one such area. It’s been in need of some love for quite a while with it’s teetering shelf, hundreds of holes and lack of paint. I’m not quite sure what the previous owners did to this poor closet, but clearly they once had a ton of shelves in it which they must have taken when they left. I can’t believe I haven’t done anything to this space in 9 years.
Early this week, the shelf came down, the holes were filled in and a fresh coat of paint covered the walls. Luckily we still had leftover paint from the bedroom so we could match the walls. We considered building shelves ourselves, but decided we lacked the time at the moment to do that so we settled on this Wooden Closet Shelving System to install. We’re very pleased with the system, it looks great, is very sturdy and adds tons of space. More of these will be purchased when we need to finish the closets in the upstairs. I was hoping to have photos of the finished product, but we worked into the night and I was too tired to take photos. They’ll come later with photos of the other project I’m working on….
Painting the stairs to our basement is also in progress, it was another neglected area that was in need of a spruce up. I’m planning something fun for these since they lead to the basement, no need for formality here. Can’t wait to see how they turn out.
