And I just knew a ladder would solve my accessory problems!
Matt and I went to Lowe's and got two six-foot wooden planks and two round wooden dowels, and then he cut them down to size and got to assembling!
Once it was all screwed together, I sanded it down so things wouldn't snag on it.
The whole thing got a coat of gold spray paint, and when it dried, I taped up the edges and rungs and painted the interior edges a beautiful rich acrylic blue!
Two coats oughta do it!
And voila! It's gorgeous!
Everything is right in the closet world again.
Picture taken prior to swapping sides. Now all my stuff is on the right. And I have a whole top shelf devoted to shoes! I love it.
A better view of the colors. My sister had to talk me into going with the gold. I kept flip-flopping between gold and copper, but now that I can see it, gold was definitely the right choice!
How do you store your accessories? What's your favorite thing about your closet?
