Since my girl, who will be 20 tomorrow, leads such a full and busy life outside the home, I have given up asking her to post pictures of her closet transformation. It took place in January, so don't you think I've been patient enough?
Sarah knew what she wanted:
-no more pink and blue little girl motifs-colors to go with the rest of her lime green, cobalt blue, and deep purple room
- nothing on the floor
-laundry sorters for darks and lights
-a result that looked so cool she might not want to close the door
-and all of that for under $100 since she'd be paying for it
She sweet-talked her dad into painting, and her little brother into using power tools. (It didn't take much.)
The paint, if I recall, was
left over from the rest of
the room job, which she her
Pappaw (also a good painter)
worked on together. So
paint cost for the closet, we'll
say, was about $7.
She and I went to Lowe's and Home Depot to shop for the shelving and laundry organizers. (Not exactly a camera-worthy adventure.) I think she ended up finding the boxed unit for about $60.
In went some colorful canvas boxes from
Target ($5 each, so $25)..
and up went the hanging clothes on matching white plastic hangers (20 for $2)...
positioned near her fuzzy blue Christmas slippers...
VOILA! Brand new closet for under a hundred bucks
it begs an open-door policy.
