Here is the before...
We were going to do the outside wood, as well, but it really would have been a HUGE chore and we would have had to dry wall, as well. We decided that was more than we wanted to tackle in one weekend. So, we are leaving the outside wood for another time.
This is after the wood was torn out and the holes patched and mudded.
The closet painted just a plain white (we had the paint left over from something else)
After the shelves are installed. I love the new second shelf. The original shelf was very narrow, so we got a wider shelf and then Rob cut down the old one to make a second shelf. Love it!
After everything is put back in the closet. I just love my new closet. Even without a light in there I can see much better now that it is white and not all dark! I still need to get some shoe racks, but we were out of money, so we'll have to wait for payday! I would also really like doors on the closet, but that will have to wait for another time.
