Let’s get you caught up on things we did weeks ago so I can then catch you up on things we’re doing now!
We got a sweet counter height dining room table just like I wanted:

It’s perfect for our small space. And it was retarded cheap, my favorite.
If you will recall (HERE) I mentioned that I painted our bedroom. I didn’t show very good pictures. And I bet you’re wondering why. Well, we had these to deal with:
Really uncool closets. So, we ripped out all the shelves and hung sliding doors from a runner on the ceiling. It was a lot of wood:
We would have bought fancier doors, but these were on sale at ikea for 1/5 of the price of the ones I wanted. Had to. I think it looks sweet.
Then I had to paint the inside of the closets grey, they were yellowy-orange for no good reason. Then I did the trim white. Now the whole room matches. Except for the fireplace…
We got some neon colored bed linens at ikea too, which really kicked up the room.
We then took the two mirrors I had painted out of the bathroom and put them in the living room, and got one big bathroom mirror. I love the way it looks. It feels clean and sleek.
Here are the doors all cleaned up and in action with a glimpse of our home-made bed:
Also lately we’ve pulled out a leaky toilet (in the master) shoveled tons of snow, taught someone to ski, had a birthday, taken over a VIP lounge at Sundance, and planned my brother’s birthday trip. It’s been a busy month!!!
I’ve been wanting to rip out my closet for a bigger one for years!
They are the same size – just we can rearrange the inside layout now. Still trying to figure out if my side is going to be for a dresser or shoes and purses…
I LOVE the closet doors!
Wow, nice work you guys!
Meant to ask – what are you going to do with the windows in the bedroom? Feel like now that you got rid of the closet doors, the windows need to match the sleek look of the ikea stuff.
Probably a white picture frame style trim. The color of the blinds may not match, but they are too high quality to replace…
so what are you going to do for electronics? ’cause that’s all that matters. 😀
Can you spray paint the blinds white?
You can cover them with curtains, regardless, and no one will ever know they aren’t matchy matchy.
Craig – Totally hanging a TV from the ceiling in between the closets. Going to be sweeeeet.
Snippy – HMMMM, I wonder!
