DIY coat closet

This weekend our dirty old coat closet got a makeover. It's medium sized, located under our stairway.

Firstly, it got a good scrub, some spackle, and new paint on the walls and moldings.




We used what paint we had on-hand, which was apple green.


btw, this is the door to the air handler


The bare light bulb got replaced by a new flush-mounted fixture, and a fancy new switch-plate.




there are worse things on which I could spend $5.97...

My fantastic life mate cut some new (level) shelves, held up by some decorative brackets from Lowe's.







Wearing my high fashion sweatshirt and sweatpants, I painted the shelves ivory colored to match our trim. Go hornets!




Looks good so far!




We put up 2 key hooks, and storage items on the shelves.




And we added a mail basket, with hooks for the dog leashes.




Lastly, we put in the railing to hang the coats, a storage unit with cubby holes (for hats and mittens), and a shoe rack.


Can you spot the KISS Christmas ornaments that I just purchased?
My tree is going to ROCK!


Maybe our newly organized coat closet will lead to a more organized life!
