my son’s closet
after patching holes in his floor (pre floor project)
he had to get all of this out
it was nothing short of horrific and yet there it was…like Stephen King “scary”
after two large contractor bags full and a very large deposit at the donation center
the closet was gutted
carpet tack board holes patched; see that tutorial here
but for now; let’s just enjoy the finish 🙂
kind of like reading the last page of a novel…before you begin.
or eating dessert first!
the closet is cleaned out and organized
I have about 30 photos of this room redo and it’s not even ready for the final reveal.
so I figured I would just to a mini series
you might love long blog posts with tons of photos
you might love little teasers with one or two
I’ll try to keep in interesting because let’s face it
how much can you talk about a floor treatment.
hence the reason for revisiting the closet that could have been featured in a horror film
or a reality show…like “Hoarders” or “Intervention”
A new floor treatment has been applied to closet and room
I could claim that my camera is dying
that would be almost true
this is not the case with this photo
just bad lighting and …well that’s it; bad lighting!
we used things that we already had in order to keep the cost down
in a previous attempt to help son stay organized, these bins were bought
and he did use them
just not efficiently
we had planned to purchase a closet unit with drawers as we had for our daughter’s closet
but we had the shelves and the bins
we had the mess managable
so we went with what we had on hand.
we had removed all of the baseboards to apply the floor treatment and we replaced the baseboards with simple 1 x 4 boards. Nice clean lines and it allowed us to place an additional board below the existing selves. perfect for shoes!
It all came together quite nicely.
nothing fancy. just good. clean. organized. functional
I think he can manage to keep it like this
what do you think?
any bets on the table as to how long this will last?
I’ll keep you posted 🙂
