Well, I finally did it. I have wanted to paint and organize the linen closet for a year now, and I finally got it done! It was crazy, because I was set on painting it before getting it organized, so it stayed like this for waaaay too long. As you can see below, I first had to haul all the stuff out and throw it on the bed (my husband and I slept in the guest room that night!). I decided to put my flannel sheet sets upstairs with the winter clothes and also stored some other things that we don’’t use very much in other places. Then I painted it blue (Crystal Waters, Behr) and the shelves a basic white glossy finish for easy cleaning. I bought some baskets and plastic bins, and voila! Now I open it up just to breathe a sigh of relief. It feels so good. On to the next project . . .
