Another house project begins

Pre-Closet Makeover 2010

This closet may look organized. You see the Elfa System from the Container Store and the Expedit Shelf from Ikea.  But oh no, not so organized.  It actually drives me crazy.  We are getting ready to start our next big project.  We are redecorating Angry Kid’s room.  Angry Husband is tired of the dinosaurs.

Angry Kid has a long closet, which requires three doors to contain it all. The doors do not roll smoothly.  They overlap, making the closet hard to get into.  Angry Husband took the doors off this weekend.  I didn’t even have to ask, because he knew.  I have ideas in my head. I explained them to Angry Husband. He actually agreed with me, for once. We actually AGREED on paint colors.

This closet will be the start of Project Angry Kid’s “Five Year Old Big Kid Room”. Seriously with working, life, sickness, and everything else; it should be done by May. Which is when Angry Kid turns FIVE. Scary, FIVE!

I will take pictures along the way.  I will post them.  I may ask for ideas.  But this closet, it makes me insane.

And Angry Kid, he was quite excited to have full access to his stuff.

P.S. The photo was taken with my iPhone. Because that was the only camera, I could grab fast enough.

P.P.S. I think I’m becoming an expert at closet makeovers, it may be my thing.

We're planning on doing the master bedroom closet this weekend. I have a feeling we're being overly ambitious in thinking we can complete it in a weekend though.

Closets kill me. They start off so organized and hit the crapper so quickly. can't wait to see the big boy room. Can you give us a peek with the colors?

Sadly, that is what my kids considered organized. I'm still trying to find a system that works other than just throwing out all their toys.

I will give a sneak peak of the colors soon. I spent an hour at Lowe's yesterday. Too many projects in my head.

Seriously, Mike would probably do your closets too. All I would have to say, is JJ wants her closets done. He would probably grab his keys and leave.

YES, it was a Little Gym medal. I think he was inspired by the Olympics.
