The basement closet construction is complete. The closets really are beautiful now and ready for some finishing touches. It's really tough to get a photo of the closet.
Here are the two closets at the bottom of the stairs in the basement (there is the lamp - pre-lampshade makeover). The two closets are connected on the inside.
Here is a map of the closet since it's literally impossible to get a whole closet photo.
Here is the closet with all of the construction finished.
Let me remind you what this closet looked like before.
The closet was completely unfinished and kinda gross to go into anytime I needed anything in there.
We had the contractors add the three melamine shelves that go across the width of the closet, but those are not adjustable. I want to do adjustable shelves/drawers from The Container Store for this side. I priced out what I want to do and for this side alone it's almost $300. If I wait until Christmas Eve, The Container Store starts it's 30% off sale, so I may just wait until then, unless I figure something else out.
We got rid of the bare bulbs and added recessed lighting on each side.
Here is a photo that shows the actual wall color (it looks much bluer in the other photos because I had to use a flash. It's Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue...the same color we painted in our home gym.
We also added vinyl "hardwood" flooring in a wide plank from Lowes.
It's impossible to get a photo of the three shelves the contractor installed.
They go the width between the two closet doors and provide tons of storage.
I still may stencil the walls before I add the shelves.
I can't wait to start organizing this space.
I can't wait to hear what you think.
Have a great weekend!
