Even before we moved in to our new house I knew that I wanted to remove the closet doors. That closet space was valuable real estate, and I needed free access to it. The doors came out and were taken away by the Disabled American Veterans on their second truck pick-up. Thank goodness for them coming out to pick up large items.
I started planning.
Step 1, remove closet doors. Check
Step 2, remove clothes rod and shelf. Check
Step 3, install shelves
Leo, the Super Handyman came out yesterday and put shelves
in the closet in my sewing room/studio. (Is it presumptuous to call my room a studio?)
Step 3, check.
I know you'll laugh at me. Somehow in my mental plan of getting these shelves the painting of them was a forgotten step. These shelves are just common pine. Not a good idea to store fabric directly on bare wood.
So, this morning I went to the local Sherwin Williams Paint store, and bought primer and a brush. (Have you checked out their Let's Chip It program? Loads of fun) I know we have brushes, but they haven't been unpacked yet. $40.00 and a few hours later I have primed shelves.
I have been trying to decide whether or not to paint the inside of the closet a new color. The old owner left some of the wall paint behind. I could use it. However, I also like the idea of a contrasting color.

"My daily routine involves looking through my stuff, putting stuff away, organizing stuff, feeling guilty because I haven’t organized other stuff, ... wading through misplaced stuff in our garage, piling up stuff I’m tired of so we can sell it, packing away stuff I’m really tired of to give it away, asking my husband where he put his stuff, sorting, washing, and drying our stuff, "

My sewing room went from bare,
to overcrowded chaos.
