I’m back again… this time with a large, much needed glass of chardonnay in my hand, paint on my toes, and wood shavings in my hair.
It’s been a long weekend.
But I’m glad this phase of the office closet reno is over.
Bear with me on the lack of in progress pictures… everything that could go wrong, did, and I was at the point of just trying to get it done to remember to document it correctly.
Let’s rewind one week ago, when the closet looked like this after phase one:
o Garden Ridge, World Market, and Lowe’s for some finishing pieces.
Brad painted the pieces, and once dry, we went to attach them and….. ready for bummer #5? They were a full half inch too short. I specifically told the guy 63 7/16″ long… he somehow didn’t pay attention to the 7/16″ part, which I had repeated at least 3 times… and cut them to exactly 63″. How does this happen? Lowe’s, if you’re reading this, you just lost points with me.
So, I just added a lot of caulk and spackle and it worked out ok in the end. Not the ideal way to go, but I’d rather not drive all the way back to the hardware store for the 4th time in one weekend.
I also need to decide if I’m going to re-attach the white bi-fold doors or add curtains. What do you all think? I don’t want it to get too busy with too many patterns and colors, but the doors are kind of pointless since the closet will never be closed. Or maybe just leave it as is? I’m interested to hear your thoughts!
