This weekend I joined the modern world and got myself a Pinterest account. I’ve been browsing Pinterest for a long time and finally decided it was high time I made it official. You can follow me here if you’d like. I’d like to follow you!
I’m finally starting to get over the cold that knocked me out last weekend (and just in time for it to hit my poor husband). After spending Saturday morning at a baby shower for a dear friend, I spent the rest of the day painting my coat closet. Can you handle the excitement?
I know, not an exciting prospect. I naively thought it would be an easy task. It’s small! It will take no time!
But then I had to empty it.
And clean it.
And take care of old peeling paint on the trim inside the door.
Then I realized I was probably peeling up lead paint. So I just took all the trim off.
THEN I could start painting. The walls and baseboards were done around 9pm Saturday night. Crazy night, no?
But I wasn’t done. Sunday morning I started planning out the stripes.
Yes, stripes! In the coat closet! It took forever! But it’s so cute!
Just need to add back the new door trim we purchased and paint it. And add a new hanging rod. And shelves. And a new light fixture that doesn’t involve a bare bulb and a dirty pull string.
Then, I need to do the same thing to the linen closet and the pantry. Because they totally need to match now. Too much cuteness for just one closet!
