So, if you missed my Master Closet Makeover Reveal that I posted last week you have to check it out!
When I finished the closet I decided to post the reveal and then write this post after, I was too excited to wait. For those of you who have been waiting for this post here it goes...
post, but it is a closet and when you get to this point you let things go...at least I did, it was good enough.
The moulding I had fit perfectly, but I needed a stop block to keep it from pushing in (see photo on the left). It also helped for nailing it securely. I just kind of built this bench as I went and didn't consider this part, but it all worked out. I also used a stop block for the towers too.
So what about the hampers? This is my favorite part! Eeek! When I first had the idea to have the metal front, I knew I had to make it work. I had to cover the 1x2's that were the top and bottom so I went with 1x3 wood, and thank goodness I had some in the garage! I cut them to size and drilled pocket holes...
Next up is the plank wall!! I had a hard time with this spot for a while because I wanted to do board and batten, but the wood I had was too wide and I didn't think it would look good. And then I remembered a trip to the Home Depot a while back and I took the photo below on the left.
I used caulk for the moulding pieces and trim pieces. And then I primed the bare wood parts to the whole closet twice, and painted it twice. That was a fun day! It took forever to do the shoe shelves, thank goodness I had at least primed them once before I built it.
I did take pictures of the painting, but I searched everywhere and they must have been accidentally deleted! Oh well! And that is it, I added the knobs and I was done! FINALLY!!! YIPPEE!!
I love to just sit on the bench and stare at how awesome it is, I have been dreaming of doing this for SO long I am so glad I finally just took the plunge!! If any of you that want a cool closet, you can totally do it! Seriously. That is why I blog, to inspire others. Believe me my closet is not perfect. Isn't that how people are? None of us are perfect, but we love each other for who we are. And I sure do love my closet, imperfections and all!!
reveal pop on over and check it out!!
Thank you so much for following me on this long journey!
