Closet Painting

It took weeks...(more like months) but slowly some of the closets are getting finished.  Mr. Warmth had the bright idea to paint the built-in shelving a contrasting color with the walls.  Also he wanted to stain the closet rods.  We did all of those things, along with spray painting the hardware that holds the closet rods in place.

I'll tell you this: I LOVE the way it looks, and the way the thick layer of glossy paint lets your hand glide along the shelves.  I'm really pleased with the results.  Now I know how much time it takes to do such details - and we aren't done!- I probably wouldn't take the time again.  We have 5 walk-in closets here, each with a lot of built in shelving.  Two are done, and three big ones still to go!

Whaddya think?

  1. Looks very classy! Are you painting all of your bedrooms the same color?

    1. No, we've picked a lighter shade (of the same family) for the rest of the walls. Although hard to tell with my lighting in this photo its a little dark for us. We are doing the whole house very neutral though, since we don't know the future. It could need sold or turned into a rental at some point. I had a red kitchen once and the next people to move into that house had only one request! Paint over the red kitchen ;).

  2. I like the contrasting colors! I am your newest follower. I wanted to thank you for stopping by Posed Perfection today and leaving me a sweet note about the Put on a Happy Vase post. Yes, do go buy some webbing. I'm trying to figure out other projects to use it on. I hope you'll stop by again soon for a visit and maybe even "follow me" back. Have a great weekend!
