Seriously, right? Why bother. Weeeell, just a tiny bit of paint really does help. A lot. Seriously. My favorite colors are neutral tans. White is just to hospital-ish. Just adding some paint to the walls in your closet really makes it so much warmer. Just see for yourself…
I know! Fo shizzle, right?! Check out some more angles:
Ain’t my boy just ah-dorable!
Now I just need to add a better light fixture so my pictures aren’t so dark! Wouldn’t a cute little chandelier be just so… cute?!
Oh, and I painted all the shelves and molding white. I don’t know why anyone in their right mind would paint molding a yellow-ish color in the first place. SO GROSS!
So, you wanna hear a totally disgusting story about this closet? Seriously, it’s totally gross. Don’t read if you don’t want to know.
Okaaay, don’t be mad at me when you are totally grossed out…
So, do you see in the “before” pictures some linens on the shelf? There’s also something blue on the top left shelf. See it?! Okay, well, the previous owner left all those linens for me when we moved in. They were the old curtains (which I promptly donated b/c they were gross).
Anyway, that blue linen is actually a thin Land’s End robe. When I took it down off the shelf to toss it I was horrified to discover that the previous owner had left a HUGE ginormous throw-up-in-my-mouth-disgusting skid mark right where her bum goes. Yup. I’m serious. You know the saying, “You can’t make this sh@! up?” Yup. Literally.
Thanks previous owner. Not only did your paint color choices suck, but your curtains were ugly, you totally jacked up several areas of the house that I had to fix (um, sandpaper walls anyone?), AND you left such a lovely robe for me to boot. You rock.
