What I’m working on Closet III

I told you all how I joined the June room makeover challenge over on Thriftdiving.com.  The room I’m working on will be half closet III and half craft room.  Well the craft part of the room is still a junk/catch all.  But the amazing closet III part is just about done.  Thank GOD and my one of my amazing friends.  Chino has been mentioned here on the blog of ton of times.  Cause lucking for me this man is a genius.  In my last 3 apartments over the last 10 years he has managed to put a walk in closet for me.  The first one was a tiny room off my bedroom that at one time was a playroom for my monster.  Once she grew out of barbies and dolls.  I decided a closet for momma was in need.  Of coarse as my monster grew older this became my hideaway from teenage girls.  Yes I had a lock on it.  If not they would have wanted to borrow everything.  lol


Closet III

So as you can see about this room like a said is a catch all.  To get my closet III started I emptied out one side so my living room was a mess folks.  It takes a mess to end up with pretty I swear.  So I got to work on painting the room witch was mostly red with one white wall.  For the closet III section of the wall I wanted an all white look.  Plus white paint is what I had on hand.  So white it is right!

So even before I’m done with the painting I hear my phone ring.  My amazing friend chino says open front door.  Oh what a beautiful site.  A man with tools who wants to use them.


Our style of working together involves me telling him what I would like and then getting the heck out of his way.  As he comes up with a way to make it work.  So I tell Chino I will be happy with one wall of all closet and he tells me nope.  It will be two walls.  Um OK more closet then I wanted I’m sure I can make it work.  lol Oh the hardships lol.



So I did my very best to get out of his way.  But I really wanted that half of the room white.  So I kept sneaking in and painting while he worked things out.  So he ended up  with paint all over him.  And the closet is up.  Life is good.

You will get to see the final reveal at the end of the month.  When this challenge is over.
