We are digging ourselves out of 9+ inches of snow that fell over the past 24 hours; plowed our driveway twice, and if you saw it now, you’d never believe it because another 3 inches has accumulated. My kiddos trudged through waist-deep snow at the foot of our driveway (thank you plow!) just to make it to the bus stop. I know all you people living in Florida, California, and Arizona are wishing you were here right now.
No matter the snow, today marks the beginning of another $100 Room Challenge. I figured that since I redid the cleaning closet last month, I’d just pop right next door and conquer the coat closet as well.
I am SO excited because there is true, natural light for photographing this space. Hallelujah! See, I really do have windows in my house. I’m sure you were starting to wonder…
Since we worked on cleaning out our closets for the 8 Week Cleaning Challenge, I decided I’d snap a shot before any cleaning began, and one after I cleaned it out.
Plans for the Space
1.) Paint- This closet is in desperate need of some paint. There are scuff marks all over the place:
2.) Shelving- Again with the wire shelving… This time I’m hoping to do another wood overlay like I did in the laundry room, but because there is an additional piece that comes down from the shelving for hanging coats, I’m thinking of going white this time.
3.) Coordinated Storage- On the top shelf, we have a basket to hold hats and mittens, a plastic tote to hold items for playing out in the snow, and then a smaller bin for housing shoe care products. Random. I’d love to find some matching bins/baskets to use instead.
4.) Last thing is to, maybe, upgrade the plastic mat that holds a couple pairs of boots. I don’t need something new, but maybe make the current one look a little more attractive…
That’s really all this closet needs. Should be a pretty easy fix for this space.
I hope those of you living where it’s warm and sunny enjoy it, and those, like me, who are up to their knees in snow, stay warm!
