With all the remodeling projects I have undertaken, I have never done a demo job. Not once.
It was bothering me when I assessed the situation with my bathroom closet.
Remember when I remodeled it? If you weren't around, check it out here.
Anyways, so this is what my closet looked like:
Look at all that room!
Such a waste...
Sooo....it had to come down.
I took out all the shelves
Then the strips of wood came out.
I don't have a picture of the wall being demoed (demo-ed?? demod...nope) but I'll just tell you that it's a pain to take down wall studs.
After everything was gutted, I put up the new framework.
Then the new supports were put in.
I decided to go with 1x4 boards instead of a sheet of plywood. One, because I already had quite a few 1x4 boards. Two, because I can't cut straight on a tablesaw yet. Three, it would be cheaper in the long run.
So I primed and painted every....single....board.
Some boards had to be sent through the table saw to make a notch.
Then I started to assemble everything.
I found this on a trip to Hobby Lobby. I spray painted it, making sure not to do a full coverage coat. I like that look better. You'll see how that turned out in a second.
I also found some cheap baskets at Walmart. They needed to be spray painted to go with the bathroom, though.
I also added bows.
I put up my metal scroll thing.
Like it? Me, too!
After repairing the walls, I was done!
There you can see the new tiling on the floor of the closet.
I hope everyone likes it!
Oh, and since I love storage and things being at my fingertips, I spraypainted an old lotion holder from BB&B and put makeup wedges in it.
Much better ;)
