This was the mess of our hall/kitchen closet under the steps shortly after we moved in. It is a small size closet right off the eat-in kitchen area that leads to a living room and is next to the garage door. We actually have a pantry and laundry area just to the left of this closet (in the kitchen) with tons of wall shelves, but not much floor space, so there was still a lot of stuff piled into this closet that needed organization. Some of this stuff went to the yard sale pile, laundry area, or the garage if not used very often, but there was still some improvement that needed to be made!
After we emptied the closet, we decided to use the leftover paint from our master bedroom wallsto freshen up the area. The walls were pretty scuffed up and I also wanted to see how I liked the color downstairs because eventually we may paint all the walls! It is called Agreeable Gray- Sherwin Williams. (more on that when I post about our room- we LOVE it!)
$9: hooks for the ironing board and brooms
$25: new ironing board & cover
$13: shoe shelves- I already had the one shelf
$3: rug (bought a $6 drop cloth and used less than half)
I used extra paint for the walls, rug and chalkboard
$50 total! For a room that I love! -and really half that $ , if you already have an ironing board :)
