Closet Crazy

These past two weeks have seen a lot of closet activity going on here at the Lovenest. I ripped out the mostly useless shelf and rod in the main floor closet (only one) and installed some ClosetMaid adjustable shelving. We probably increased our usable space by at least 800%.
Late last week we finally got our custom linen closet (cabinet) installed into the dead space (before picture) in our hallway outside our bathroom. You have no idea how exciting it is to have a place to put stuff like toilet paper and towels! Yeeha! We spec'd out what we wanted and had a local place build us a birch cabinet which they installed so as to try to look original. We'll have to paint it to match the rest of the hallway now.

Lovely Lighting

We finally got a new light fixture for our hallway. Picked this beauty up at Architectural Antiques - all Jeremy had to do was spray paint the base white to match the freshly-painted ceiling.

We really need to get better about taking "before" pictures!

Linen Closet

By the way, we never got the f*#&ing linen closet. Contractor flaked out on us a month after it was supposed to have been done. At least we got our deposit back. Back to square one on that project.

Linens & Things

We are getting a linen closet!

For some reason, there is not one in this house. Which means that right now we have a shelf kind of tucked into the space where it seems like a linen closet should go. (Before photo will go here soon.)

But Jeremy met with Kevin from Custom Cabinets on Friday, and we are getting a floor-to-ceiling linen closet with 6 shelves.

In other news, I'm planning on painting the hallway a turquoise color and finding an interesting light fixture to complement the color. A kind of shabby-chic kind of wee chandelier thing. It's such a tiny hallway that I think it will look really great. Especially since it's flanked by the bathroom (which is soon to be all-white), Jeremy's office (a lovely shade of green), and my office (sort of creamish and maybe will be yellowish someday), and the living room (which will soon be a color that Martha calls, "Tortilla").

As you can tell, paint colors truly thrill me.
