I started this closet cleaning challenge back in November.  It turns out you shouldn’t start projects like this right before Thanksgiving and Christmas when you’ve got a million other things to work on.  But hey, we finally finished it and I love it!  We can actually walk into it a bit now, instead of the contents pouring out of it.  I love, simply love, how organized the tools and cleaning supplies are with the peg board.  It may not be pretty, but hey that stuff is practical!  Bob painted the closet for me using a bright blue we found in the basement, free paint is great.  I got the shelving at Lowes, with the kids by myself.  That was a bit of an adventure.  Its press board covered with formica, but it works since the span of the shelves isn’t too wide.  Its sold in 12 foot lengths, so we got it cut before we brought it home.  I love that you can have Lowes cut something exactly the size you need it.  It just saves so much project time once you get home.  Overall, I’m super happy with how the closet turned out and we are totally inspired to take on our other closets.  Yes we have others that look like a bomb went off inside.  We’ll get there.  I’m just greatful to have the storage space!

  1. I finished my linen closet too and I like opening it once in a while just to look at it. I found so many things I did not know we still had while organizing it.

  5. I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the net shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.
