closet...

We have two closets in the back hallway.  One is all shelves and I use it for food storage.  The kitchen doesn't have enough cabinets to keep dishes AND food... the other closet had shelves on either side and then a hanging rod. We thought we would use the hanging rod for coats, but we each keep our current coat in our own bedroom closet with extras in the guest room...  What I really needed was more shelves..

Friday night we headed to our local Menards and picked up some pre-finished white shelves..  Rich tore out the shelves on the right side of the closet and removed the closet rod.  Ripping out the shelves created a big mess in the wall, so I did a little taping and mudding yesterday.. 



He added the cleats and I sanded and painted this morning...


and shelves were added...

So much more storage now...
Yesterday Kristin called and asked her daddy out on a date.  They both love horror films and so they took off and saw "The Lady in Black"...  Owen and Ava and I watched "Rio" and had popcorn and then Ava and I played Sorry and Phase 10... She's getting really good at Phase 10... 

Rich is already thinking about the project for next weekend..

There will be NO project next weekend.  We have 20 people coming for a combined 60th birthday party for Rich and a certain little granddaughter turns four!!
