I don’t know about you, but its hard to spend money on a storage closet that going to get messed up eventually… so I thought this would be the perfect project for the $100 room challenge is to transform my ugly storage into a pretty one. I have lots of stuff in my attic so I can certainly find things to create a pretty storage closet. Stay in touch for the next 4 weeks to see how the storage refresh turns.


Step 1:

Take everything out and paint walls. I saved all my paint from what was left over when they painted the room a few years back. So I had  a gallon of Sherman William Ibis white for the walls.


Step 2:

I taped all the trim and covered the concrete floors with this packaging paper. Thats the hardest to do, since its time-consuming. When you paint any room you paint all the edges with a paint brush. Then you use a paint roller and the paint the wall  to blend with the edges.

Step 3:

After a few hours the fun stuff  is removing all the tape and paper. Viola clean white walls. I love it.


Even storage closet should be pretty!

After  roaming in my attic I found 2 large wicker bins, a bunch of smaller baskets . I finally have a for my pretty smelling candle (courtesy of Earth Wax and Fire. There candles smell so good and last a long time. It comes with a pretty hand crafted ceramic plate with sea glass pieces. The experts say that the glass pieces are over 800 years old. The candles come as a monthly subscription. Each month, they select an artisanal candle and a matching ceramic bowl. It’s a great gift for any one. I am thinking of giving a 2 month subscription  to my sister for her birthday.

I wan to thank Erin From Lemons, Lavender and Laundry for organizing this Challenge! This is a 4 week challenge and see how the storage progresses next week
