Last week I stumbled upon this lovely vintage lantern in the thrift store for a measly $5.00.
The poor little thing was sitting way up on the top shelf with dust all over it.
Even though I had no idea where I would use it, I felt compelled to rescue it.
Once I got home, I walked around my house with the light in my hand,
searching for the perfect spot to house my new treasure.
I got to our master closet and stopped. Bingo!
Our closet has been begging for some attention since we moved in.
Here it is in its current state.
It is certainly not a huge space, but we were determined to be able to fit our laundry room
on our second floor, so we had to skimp on the closet space.
I have been working on purging in my closet.
I am trying to keep only the items I wear on a regular basis
(which would really only be workout pants and a fleece).
Fortunately, we have a separate shoe closet in our bedroom.
If we tried to cram all of our shoes into this closet also, that would be a problem.
I decided to put together a little inspiration board for our master closet.
I don't plan to make any major changes in the space, but I do want to make it more inviting.
1. I will start by panting stripes on the wall behind the dresser.
I will be using Sherwin Williams Kilim Beige for the stripe color.
2. The dresser itself will either be painted cream or switched out with another
dresser currently living in the garage.
3. The new light will be the focal point.
4. I will be converting this old window into a jewelry display.
5. I will be wwitching out all of our mismatched hangers with wooden hangers.
6. I will be adding wire baskets for more storage.
I plan to start on the project this week and hopefully by the end of the month, it will be complete.
The start of a new year always makes we want to purge, rearrange and freshen up.
You can link up a project you want to tackle at the beginning of the month and then she will have an After Party at the end of the month so you can link up your completed project. Talk about motivation.
Let's hope I can stay on track and get it completed by the date of the After Party, January, 27th.
