My poor husband! That is all I can say. You see, late Sunday afternoon I decided that I needed to start one last project on the house. Seriously one more and that is it…well at least until we build my craft room, but that is another story. Unfortunately we only have one little closet downstairs and it holds all of our cleaning supplies and extra toiletries. And it is a mess! Like, a yucky mess! Once we finished our bathroom renovation and I was organizing all of the cabinets in there I found myself bringing more and more items into the closet to be stored. I was organizing my bathroom while I was making this little closet more cluttered and unorganized…so I had to redo the closet. I decided that I would tackle this little closet all by myself or with little help from the hubby. Of course all of that changed the moment I took out the wooden shelf that was in the closet and saw the big hole in the wall that exposed the chimney. “Oh dang, I had forgotten about that!” Thus, the hubby needed to help out…in a big way. Thankfully for me, he did some framing, sheet-rocking and even mudded and tapped the closet within a few hours. Yes, he is amazing and you don’t have to tell me how lucky I am because I already know it! Yesterday I quickly browsed the web for ideas on cleaning/broom closets and came up with a few. Here are the ones that I fell in love with immediately. Who knew cleaning/broom closets could be so pretty!Better Homes and Gardens
After looking at all the inspiration I quickly drew up a sketch of what I wanted our cleaning/broom closet to look like. As you can see I’m no artist nor do I know how to draw to proper scale, but what I did figure out is what I want in our closet and how to set it up. Tonight I tiled the floor and hopefully by the end of the week it will be complete. Of course that all depends on how much time the hubby can spend working on it, since he still needs to build all of the shelves. So much for me doing the work myself right? Truth is, my hubby couldn’t just sit back and let me do it myself anyways. For some strange reason working together on this house is our favorite thing to do with one another! Kinda weird, but true.
