TAfter an unfortunate cancellation by the closet people on Friday with my entire apartment in shambles-literally piles of clothes everywhere, they finally came today to finish up. I think I am too nice and they didn't think it was a big deal to cancel on me at the last minute, especially since I had to hunt them down to find out they were canceling. It's really fun...
The problem with my closet in this old building that I live in is that there an air conditioning handler up on the left side that is bulky, loud and has water running through it. It was always hidden inside my drop ceiling, so it wasn't really a concern. When I opened it up at one point with the A/C man, I realized the entire right hand side was unused and became obsessed with reclaiming that space. I need more storage space always!
It started to look like too complicated a job until the right person came and after 3 hours of chit chat sweet talking Robert from the closet company, he decided he could not only fix the a/c handler situation but he threw in the demo of my old closet and even offered to paint-two things he previously told me they did not do. I have to say that turn of events was exhilarating and confirmed to me that if you are nice it can get you a lot farther than being not so nice.
So, now the closet is done..it needs a quick paint touch up in a few places, but I am so excited to put the obvious things back where they belong and start the not-so-sure pile to go through. This will for sure be a task but the thought of having a pretty, organized closet where I know where everything is will be a treat!
Here is the end result of the closet renovation:
