Changing it Out.

I was impressed with Merrillee’s remodel of her bathroom, and thought I’d share what my husband and I did over Spring Break. I finally convinced him to redo our closet. Well---the way I did it was went out to the Container Store and bought things to remodel it. My husband didn’t want to get rid of the shelves on the wall between the two sides of our closet, but once we knocked out the two hanging rods and shelves above, he said, maybe we should do the entire closet. I didn’t hesitate and immediately went out and finished buying the things we needed to redo the entire closet.

Well, he didn’t think we needed to repaint the walls in the closet. It had not been repainted since we moved into the house 30 years ago. I told him once in 30 years was not overdoing it. (You know how husbands are. If I had put a dent in the car, it would’ve been an entirely different reaction.) We repainted. As you can see, we installed the new shelves and hanging rods. It is a pleasure to walk into that closet. I have a smile on my face each time I walk into it. And I have to give my husband a gold star. He does excellent work.

Looks awesome, Leann! So does he hire out? ;o)

Don't I wish. If I can get him to do things at home, I do the happy dance.

I love your closet. I'm still trying to put my house back together, but the project won't be complete until they put in the new carpet. We also discovered a leak in our shower. Now we are having that redone. The price to redo it is twice as much as the cost of doing the tile in our 2 1/2 baths. I couldn't believe it.

Your closet looks great! I wish mine looked that way! That reminds me, my mom was telling me to clean out my closet today...

I'm not sure where it is most appropriate to post this, but I'll do it here.
I think that it would be really cool if someone would post about Irene Hannon's Lighthouse Lane series. I read Tides of Hope(the first one) and loved it! The next book in the series is supposed to come out in August, but I got my hands on a copy of it in a used bookstore! Yay! I can't wait to read it!
It is bound to be a great series. This is merely a suggestion that probably not one of the authors will see, but if you do I hope you take it into consideration.
