As you can see, it's yellowed and chock-full of crapola. The other side, too...
For shame! There is a jammed shredder in here that hasn't worked for years! And an entire box of colorful file folders that I have no hope of ever using up in my lifetime! That black strap? It's a carrier for my yoga mat that is only used to cushion my knees while painting on the floor!
It took me a little while to clean it all out, even longer to prime every inch of the inside. Believe me, there is a lot of junk that will not be making it's way back into this closet. And...this picture was BEFORE the primer, just so we're clear.
I've been painting the shelves, trim and doors the same white as the bookcases, and the closet walls the same pale blue as the ceiling. It's looking much better now! Is it weird to spend hours painting a closet that no one will ever see? Maybe.
