The Happy Crazy House

remodeling and other family adventures

How to update a room in an afternoon….if your closet doors have been removed as ours are. Jane’s closet was looking pretty dismal in comparison to the rest of the room so I decided to kick it up a notch.
the happy crazy house girl closetI removed everything from the closet and prepped the walls for paint…..this includes- spackle, sand paper and painters tape.

I am using paint that I already had on hand….both for the wall color and the trim. is anyone noticing that I never painted the trim in the closet???Β  let’s pretend that never happened…’s fixed now πŸ™‚

Wall:Β  Behr Premuim Plus in Carolina Coast

Trim:Β  Valspar white

In the before picture you can see that the dresser needs some love. Jane liked to scale the front of it, so it is also missing knobs.

I also prepped the dresser for paint……this includes- wood putty, sand paper and painters tape. HA!!Β  I used the same paint, Valspar White (from the trim), on the dresser.

Also – a new set a knobs is in order.Β  These unfinished wood knobs came from Walmart.Β  I am using Krylon ColorMaster in Champagne Nouveau, a personal favorite, with a Krylon clear coat to top it off.

With some contact paper to keep it clean looking.Β  You should have seen me with this…..ridiculous.Β  All I can say is that this brand is pretty awesome.Β  I made some serious mistakes and was able to fix it all so that speaks volumes.

A final look
