Closet Make Over Before Photos

Hi Stampers!

So the makeover begins!  I have to admit I got home and started putting my Ikea pieces together yesterday and started worrying.  All the pieces just didn't look right and I tried every combination and it just wasn't working.  Finally, I went to bed feeling a bit discouraged to say the least!  After all I had been writing article and getting all of you pumped up to see this amazing new closet in my scrapbook room.  Not to mention traveling 4 states to go to an Ikea!

This morning, I returned to tackle the closet and finally realized there is a solution.  As I am writing this article my hubby is at the hardware store picking up a couple other items that is going to make this work.  Not only will I have the closet of my dreams I will also have a great office space upstairs in my Stampin Up workshop area.  Yes.... I have two rooms in my home dedicated to my scrapbooking and stamping.  I am spoiled rotten LOL!  It is going to be a lot of work this week to get this pulled together by Saturday but I am going to give it my best shot.

We are getting ready to start painting the closet as soon as my hubby gets home and then we can start putting the closet together tomorrow.  Whew it is going to be alot of work but I am excited and look forward to showing you the outcome.  Here is a photo to let you know what we are starting with.  I just got finished spackling the holes (there were a lot of them) that were in the closet.  Also after I finally convinced my hubby to let me, I removed the doors to open up the area better.

I will keep posting to to show you the progress.

Until Next Time
Happy Stampin!

  1. Sounds so exciting. I can't imagine the disappointed you had to deal with when you found things not right with what you bought at Idea.........four states away......eek! I'm a lunch one as have an Ikea only 12 miles from me...but I still get disappointed and mad when not all the parts are in the boxes.

    So looking forward to your new room(s). Good luck.
