Remember the ‘Closet of Doom’?

Eeek.  I know. I wasn’t using my closet to hang my clothes, so much as to cram odds and ends out of sight. For months I planned it out in my head and talked about fixing it up.  A few weekends ago I decided to put my money where my mouth was and finally finish the job.

I went Home Depot and got a gallon of a very pretty pale robin’s egg blue paint from the Martha Stewart paint line.

In case you like it the name is Enamelware and the number is MSL116. Aqua is one of my very favorite colors, and I wanted to make a nice fun pop of color inside the closet when the doors were opened. I started by pulling everything out and washing down the walls, filling in holes with spackle and sanding it down. The walls are old plaster so there was a lot of mending to be done.

I gave everything two coats of paint and even before I put everything back in it looked so pretty. That blue is such a cheerful happy color. I love it.

Sorry for the blurry picture, but you get the idea. Its soooooooo much better! I know where everything is, and nothing is wrinkled and horrible looking. It is so worth the $20 in paint and the few hours it took to do. I hope this inspires you to get in the spirit and get a spring cleaning project done. It feels great to make a positive change.
