Then you look a little closer at the paint job...
Woo hoo!!! A barrel of monkeys must've helped Boozie with this project!
Oh hell no! They put latex paint over oil-base paint without using primer all throughout this house. It scrapes off like confetti. All over my hair.
Okay, the filthy floor was all me. At least I made a little money while cleaning it, though.
I used these little 1x1 scraps to help out with the 'low shelf' problem I hated above the hanging bar. We had them laying around, so they were free!
Wala! I also cut a long one to fit under the back of the shelf. Then, I had to address the missing shelf for the top supports. The only scraps I had were not deep enough, so I improvised by combining a leftover shelf from our built-in project and a 2.5 wide pine scrap to make an 11.5 inch deep shelf.
They fit pretty nice when I got at em with our trusty miter saw and sandpaper. No one will ever know it's two pieces! Except all you fine people. And anyone that sneaks into the closet for '7 minutes in heaven.'
I think it will be grand. Now I just have to prime and paint every lick of trim, wall, ceiling, shelf and window in this tiny space. And attach all the new pieces with the nail gun. Then caulk all the seams and re-paint them. And find hooks and accessories. Argh! Stupid closet.
