Hello everyone! Our latest project! We just finished updating our master closet. Okay! The closet is not necessarily a Texas size closet, it’s not even a regular walk in closet! I would consider it a half-size walk in closet! Ha-ha! All I can say is, it wasn’t working for us. Dale and I decided to change that and make it user-friendly for us.
Originally the closet had a wire shelf with the rod attached to hang clothes. Funky! Also we could not hang any clothes within fifteen inches from the door opening, because it would interfere with the door closing, which was wasted space.
Dale took the wire shelf out and patched the holes. Afterwards, we sanded the walls to prepare for primer. Painting this small space would be a test for us to see how complicated it will be to paint the rest of the house. The walls are sheet rock with some kind of vinyl over it like wallpaper. We used Zinsser Bulls Eye primer for all projects, suggested by the painting department at Lowes Hardware. (My tip, let the primer cure twenty four hours before you paint.) The day after I primed, Dale painted the walls and it turned out better than I expected. We used Valspar Ultra 2000, High Hide White and believe or not we used one coat! Very pleased with the Valspar Ultra.
My husband made ten shelves for shoes and misc. and a shelf above for extra storage. Originally we had one single rod to hang clothes. Dale installed upper and lower rods using one inch electrical conduit. Now we have a much better closet with more storage! I am happy with the way it turned out!
