I finally got around to putting up some shelves in the second closet. When I started, I was planning on painting the walls a deep red color to match the bedroom, but for several reasons, decided not to – mostly because the popcorn texture stuff flakes off if you barely touch it, so painting would destroy it. Of course, I’d rather not have the texture at all, but removing it would probably require replacing the drywall in the whole closet, which was well beyond the scope of this project. So no painting. Also, I decided to construct only a single shelf in this closet, so it’s not as glorious as the other closet. But I promised pictures, so here they are.
The closet in our Master Bedroom is awkwardly shaped. My project for the past two days has been to construct some shelving in the closet to help us make the most of our limited closet space. Specifically, I wanted to build something that would accomodate all of our shoes that were previously just tossed in a pile in the bottom of the closet. We’re pretty happy with how it turned out, so I thought I’d share it with everyone. The hardest part was painting the walls blue to match the rest of the bedroom. Mel and I painted the room over a year ago, but never got around to painting the closet to match. The whole closet has a textured finish that’s hard to paint. Here’s some pictures of the final product.
The short shelves on the bottom are specifically for shoes. Here they are all loaded up.
The sloping ceiling creates some akward spaces, so I had to be a little inventive to try and make the most of the space.
