What is the best thing to do when you finish school and you're bored? Redo your closet, of course! I had a lot of stuff piling up in my closet and decided it was time to clean it up. I had just finished school and my summer vacation had started. This was in June. I meant to do a post about it sooner. Priorities, am I right? (I forgot.)
Anyway, The first thing I needed to do was pull everything out. My closet threw up in my room. I had so much energy. I was like, "I'm getting this done, people."
My mom and I had talked about me painting my closet. As I had everything out of the closet, I figured what better time than now to paint my closet? So, down the garage to find a paint color I wanted from our endless collection of Oops Paint. (Oops paint is discount paint from Home Depot. If you're planning on painting, look into Oops Paint as there might be a color that you like for a discount price.)
First, we thought green. I have a couple of accent pillows in my room that are green and my comforter has a floral pattern with green leaves. As I looked at the paint, I settled on one. It wasn't really what I wanted, but it was what we had and I didn't want to clean my closet only to pull everything out again.
Before I really began, we decided to check one more time for a tan color. Lo and behold, a peachy tan color. Y'all know peach is my favorite color. My excitement grew and I began prepping and painting my closet.
(Actually, these are more in-progress as my before pictures weren't great.)
(Complete with a cowboy hat.)
(The stuff on the top shelving is for my Hope Chest.)
I painted the closet pretty much by myself. My mom helped me out with touch ups when I was too sore to move anymore and she helped me when I needed it. I love the paint color and how it turned out.
So, to Gray and Catherine, whom I had talked to on my breaks between doing this project, here's the outcome.
This is overdue since I started this in June and finished it in like three days. (Getting my closet back together took three days, including the day of painting.)
My room was an obstacle course as I navigated through it just to get some sleep. I'm petty happy with the outcome.
That's it. No rants. No life lesson. Wait, maybe I have a life lesson. *Ahem* You can do projects yourself and save money instead of hiring someone. Yes, it takes time and painting will cause soreness that you've never experienced, but it is so worth it. DIY is fun and keeps you productive.
God bless y'all. 😁
