The closet walls are up! Yay! Primed, painted shelf and clothes rods are installed!
The closet in our bedroom came with a single rod and a regular door, which made it hard to see into the corners of the closet. My husband makes me laugh because whenever he gets ready for the day he seems to wear the same shirts and pants. Ha-ha! I realize he grabs whatever he sees in front of him, the clothes at the end get ignored. Dale’s new closet will be more functional. The new closet has upper and lower clothes rods for more hanging and we plan to install a bi-fold door for a better view. Dale’s new closet is access from the hall now, instead of the bedroom.
You might be wondering why not fix the closet in the bedroom.? The closet is located at the end of the room opposite the entry. The plan is to take that closet out so that we can move our bed at the end of the room away from the entry door. Moving our bed there will give us more space for two night stands. (more storage)

I am excited to tell you the office walls have also been primed and painted! I am leaving one wall unpainted, I plan to paint later with an accent color. We even installed the plank walls and they look great! We still have much more work to do, it’s all the little details that take time. I am feeling good about our progress and will update you as we move along with our home renovations.
