Thank you for stopping by! I am excited about my first post for Metamorphosis Monday, hosted by Susan at 'Between naps on the porch'. Unfortunately I don't have any "before" pictures. I will require that you use your imagination.....you see this used to be the closet in my laundry room that contained my very large 30 plus year old heater. As I have shared before, my home has very little storage space so I am always trying to squeeze in a little more. After researching and dreaming of alternative locations for my heater I came up with the perfect location. I have two crawl spaces under my house. Those of you on the west coast will understand. --No basements out here, although at one time my house did have a root cellar. At any rate, one crawl space is exceptionally large and very accessible, so we relocated our new heater there and Voila! - Space for a new closet!
Of course it need a floor. We added a wood floor that matches my laundry room perfectly. It already had electricity so we installed a darling little overhead light that I found at a salvage shop in Berkeley. Bead board on the walls and shelves all painted in a bone color were installed. Here are the results.
This is the moulding on the shelves.
The shelving is floor to ceiling with quite a bit of space on the floor to store some of my larger appliances. The shelves are at a variety of heights.
The closet is a walk-in however I didn't feel it was large enough for shelves on all sides so one wall is blank. I think I need to hang some plates on it, don't you?
This final picture is of the door--something else I needed to replace. The door we removed was hollow core and very ugly. This door matches the others in the room. I added hardware that is reproduction but matches the hardware elsewhere in the room.
After over twenty years of living in this house without a pantry I am thrilled!
