Making a storage area prettyI keep promising to show you all ways that I have been decorating our new home, but really we are nowhere near close to the finished product. But I do finally have something to share with you...closets!
Yeah yeah, not that exciting for you, but it was for me.
We lucked out and ended up with a house that has a lot of closets. So much so that we were able to turn one into a pantry. Upstairs we have three linen closets and that's not including the bedroom closets (each bedroom has two).
For the linen closest I decided to use contact paper to cover the shelves. It gives me peace of mind knowing that my bedding is sitting on something that is clean (and easily cleanable). It also protects the wood shelves from any liquids that might spill. Plus, it just looks pretty when I open the door.
all of my candles.
Side note...yes I know I own a lot of candles. I just love them so much. Plus I just can't pass up a deal at TJ Maxx/Marshalls.
Then there is a third, very small closet that is in our master bathroom. That will hold all of our bath supplies and my make up.
Honestly, contact paper is such an easy way to spruce up a dull space. Plus it doesn't cost much. Two rolls ran me under $10 and you can get a variety of patterns to suit your decor (mine is a variegated green stripe).
Putting away sheets never looked this good!
