Closet Completion - Finally!

So if any of you have been reading for awhile you will know that the carpenter started this project shown here and here for his senior project last spring. It's sat unfinished for a year now. Just waiting to be finished. The things that belonged in the closet were just piled in there so that if you needed anything you had to pull everything out because what you needed was always on the bottom. So this spring break I resolved I would finish this sore thumb of a project. I'm tickled pink with the results so to speak. It's nice to finally be able to open the door and find what you need without having to dig for it and the vacuum cleaner finally has it's own home after 10 years. Like most older homes this had no hallway coat closet, just a linen press, a place with drawers and shelves. This is one project I'm glad to have done. Well we still have to decide what kind of flooring to do. I'm leaning towards the remnant left over from kitchen flooring. The carpenter wants to do bamboo. I just laughed. 
 Here's everything from the closet, just waiting for their new home.

Closet with a coat of primer. Of course the weather would have to change drastically after this and get cold and rainy.

Waiting for the last coat of paint to dry.

Installing the shelves, finally!

New shelves, happy dance.....

Everything in it's place. Well not the vacuum cleaner yet, but it did fit. Another project bites the dust. Next!

I'll be joining in over at Make Your Monday at Twice Remembered for Week 19. Tomorrow it's back to work. The week went by way too fast. I still have so many projects left to do.
