Thanks so much for all of the lovely comments on my guest room and for the overwhelming response on my milk paint birthday post! This group knows how to make a girl feel good. Thank you! I’ll announce the giveaway winner in tomorrow’s post.
Well, we took advantage of a pretty day last week and finally finished building the studio closet!
Now, I need to prime and paint it. I’m planning to paint it the same color as the walls, Simply White by Benjamin Moore, so it just blends in. I don’t want it to be too visually imposing, which would be easy since it is quite large.
We built the last of the three doors and this time added a Z brace to minimize warping. The door was still a little warped, but not anywhere near as wonky as the other two were.
We did make one bone-headed mistake, though. Can you see it? If you can’t see it, I won’t point it out!
And we also got all of the doors situated, so they fit in the catches and stay closed. (That sounds like a simple thing, but it was trickier than one would think.)
Until it’s painted and I can install the handles, I put some makeshift painter’s tape handles in place.
I’ll get it primed and painted this week!
For those who are curious about the construction, here is how it looked before we put the cladding, face frame, and doors on…
As you can see, it’s a very simple closet, but it offers a boatload of storage, which is just what I needed!
