This is what it looked like soon after he demoed and started putting them together:
We have a coat problem, every coat in the winter doesn't get put away. It either gets draped across the couch or over a kitchen chair where they keep collecting until guests are coming over. I'm sure I'm not alone in this scenario because it's a real drag to put the coats away on a hanger. I'm sure everyone has seen this pin, but in case not here you go!
Once John closed off the wall again the closet looked like this:
Anywho...John finished the cubbies quickly and this is how they look now:
Then the poor closet sat and sat and sat because John just doesn't like the mud and sheet rock :) I finally convinced him to start again.
John made the molding himself and we got the hooks from Ikea since the price was much better than Lowe's.
There are still a few things that John would like to finish up, like a new 6 panel door and new hardware, but here is the closet with the coats and cleaning supplies moved back in.
We now have extra hangers for our regular clothes and enough coat hooks for guests that come over in the winter. I love how it turned out and its nice to have the cleaning supplies hung up so they don't fall over every time I reach in.
I'm also so excited to announce that my craft room is in the works. This was just a pipe dream for me this year, but it's happening! John moved almost everything out of the room, except for my sewing machine since I'm still using that almost daily. Once we get back from The Big Apple we'll move the rest out and tear out the carpet. I'm still trying to decide on the perfect flooring for the room, but here's a sneak peek of the bamboo counter that John brought home for the room!
