Last night I started working on my office/craft room (formerly M’s bedroom, which is being moved to the basement). You have no idea how excited this makes me! What didn’t make me excited was the ugly closet. I love painting rooms but I hate painting closets. In fact, when we painted M’s room we left the closet the boring beige that is still in much of our house.
|The closet before. This photo is decieving: the walls are more |
blueish and the closet is more beige. Either way, at this point I'd
taken all the hardware out of the closet so it was an empty hole.
I wasn’t sure about painting the closet, although I really didn’t want to leave it beige, so when my mom told me this tip she was given by someone at a paint shop, I thought it was brilliant. Are you ready for it? PAINT THE CLOSET WHITE! Sorry to yell but I’m so excited. It’s so simple. It’ll match any colour. It’ll always look clean and fresh. I’ll never (or at least not for a very long time) have to paint it again. Maybe this is common sense to others but it was pretty revolutionary for me.
So last night that’s exactly what I did. I used Behr Paint and Primer in One with a satin ultra finish. The colour is W-F-600, Snowfall. I love the colour but am not sure how I feel about the paint yet. My opinion was tainted by my hatred of painting the closet (and even worse, the ceiling in the closet) so I’ll let you know my thoughts after I paint the rest of the room.
