Before I show you what you’re about to see, let’s just imagine that my linen/guestroom closet will soon look like this. Let’s also imagine that I have some clue what I’m doing, and this’ll only take a couple of days to finish.
I knew this closet was going to be a project of mine, but it’s been off to a slow start. Remember those goals? I started just piling things in there with total disregard for neatness.
Then my husband caught “Death 2012” as we call it, and I banished him to the guestroom. That meant I had to stay out of there until the death was gone.
The shelving unit put in place originally just didn’t function well. It’s always been intended as a guestroom, and the fact that it only had a few shelves has always been a nuisance. I found that putting this cheap dresser in there helped for the time being.
I also find that having a spoon in your closet works out well. You never know when you’ll need for…ya know…reading some Poe.
So I spent a couple of hours gutting it, removing the dresser (SO glad that’s not on video), and removing all the wire shelving. I came up with two bags of trash and three bags of donations. (I did not donate the spoon.)
So here’s where it is as of now. The project came to a halt because I couldn’t remove these little plastic thing-a-ma-jigs that were holding the shelving. They are STUCK in the wall, but they’re not screwed in. I should have taken a closer picture to explain. Anyone come across these before?
I’ll be back once I figure those things out. I drew a sketch of what I envision in this space, and you will quickly learn that I have no artistic abilities whatsoever.
