My goal in the next couple of months is to get rid of the wire shelves in my house. Every. Last. One. Of. Them. Last Friday I had the day off so I headed to the store to get supplies. The flyer had 6 ft. white boards for $9.99 with a $9 rebate per board. So basically I paid $.99 per board. Score. I picked up 6 of them on that trip. And some pink paint. Holla!
I couldn't wait to put that paint on the walls but first I had to tackle getting those damn wire shelves off the walls. Ugh. Well I think I might have found an easier way people! Let Vanna demonstrate for you-
I have found that wedging a flat head screwdriver between the clip and nail enough to get a hold of it with the needle nose pliers works great. Then you just pull the nail out. You're still going to get a dime size hole in the wall, but it's way easier than tugging and yanking and pulling.
So Sunday after the game I was able to start painting. I only got a quart of paint since this was such a small area. But let me tell you- the walls sucked up that paint really fast. I was kind of nervous that I would run out but luckily I didn't. I think I have a drop left in the can after all was said and done. I've also never painted with reds/pinks so I didn't realize how hard they are to get even on the walls. So if you look closely at the walls, you will notice the not-so-even paint. Whatevs. It's a closet.
It's bold- that's for sure. I color matched to the craft paint that I used on the LOVE letters and the WTF and SRSLY frames. It's super cute.
Then I headed back downstairs to cut the boards. Because the width of the closet was 41 inches and the boards were 72 I needed to take off quite a bit. I could have gotten the 4 ft board but those weren't on-sale, nor were they $.99. So 6 ft. boards it was. And thank god I hadn't returned Mr. Jon's circular saw yet
The smaller boards against the front of the workbench are the leftover pieces. Still a pretty decent size if I wanted to use them elsewhere- like in the garage??? I also have 2 extra boards that I'm thinking about where I can put them. But back to the pink closet. Here it is with the shelves already installed.
I actually had WAY MORE stuff in there that I'm now trying to get rid of- like extra duvet covers, coverlets, comforters, curtains, pillow shams, bed skirts...... Seriously- it was like a small Bed Bath and Beyond in there. I'm only keeping 3 duvet sets- the others have gone onto that list by Craig. I've had a couple of inquiries already so fingers crossed I can sell them all! And make back some moolah! Mama loves money!
But the closet looks much more organized than before and allows the color to show through. I effing LOVE it. Cuz who doesn't need more pink in their life? Seriously.
