From the Desk of Clearissa Coward’s Command Center/Divinely Organized
I want to do my happy dance. My dance may not be pretty but it is liberating. J My project closet is D.O.N.E! Well as done I get. Until a new idea comes along. 🙂 The life and times of an organizer/redesigner. This project began in the summer of 2014. You can read the first two posts here and here.
I am almost embarrassed to show you how my project closet looked at the beginning of this process, but I am blogger and I am strong so I can take it. When you review the older posts…don’t judge me. 🙂 At this point, I am; however, proud of where the closet is now in terms of organization/function and aesthetics. Back to my happy dance. 🙂
The important take away here…mason jars are a great way to store left over paint. The paint is sealed appropriately, the jars take up much less space than old paint cans, and you can see your colors through the jar. Also, I add a couple of marbles to each jar. The marbles aid when it’s time to use the paint. The marbles will help mix the paint when you shake it. Clever…right? It is also easy to label the tops of the jars with the date and name of the paint. I love this storage solution for left over paint and stain.
The rest of the project closet was updated as well. I added the same paper I used in the pantry update to the back wall of the closet. This is a great way to add texture and to lighten up the space. The paper adds a little interest. I also added tap/puck lights to the closet to add ambiance and to make it easier to find things. Yes you read that correctly. I did write ambiance for a project closet-funny huh? That is also the reason the artwork and mirrors are added to the back wall as well. That and the fact that I have no place for them in the house at this time and this is a great way to store them.
I am very pleased with the way this project turned out. I think I may be able to add some under the shelf storage for smaller crafting supplies. I hope you like it!
I say I’m done with this project but I ask you, are we ever done with a project? Not me.
