How to update a closet in an afternoon

OR
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.
Before:
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???  let’s pretend that never happened…..it’s fixed now 🙂

Wall:  Behr Premuim Plus in Carolina Coast

Trim:  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!!  I used the same paint, Valspar White (from the trim), on the dresser.

Also – a new set a knobs is in order.  These unfinished wood knobs came from Walmart.  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.  You should have seen me with this…..ridiculous.  All I can say is that this brand is pretty awesome.  I made some serious mistakes and was able to fix it all so that speaks volumes.

A final look

What do you think??
