When we moved into The Ear, we had two small, crappy closets. One was in our bedroom (improved upon last year), and the other was in our office-turned-nursery. Both closets were used to run HVAC ducts, which is good for aesthetics but not for storage capacity.
The nursery closet was a bit better off than our bedroom closet. It had a couple of Home Depot supplied Closet Maid brand shelves, which, although they were hung ridiculously high, would hold some stuff; the bottom one sported a rod. And much like with our bed room closet, we filled this space up with coats and luggage as soon as we moved in then focused on to other things, leaving its hole-y, unpainted walls and general dirtiness to fester.
At some point over the summer (maybe during the bathroom addition?), I realized that I needed to tackle this area sooner rather than later while I could still fit in there and turn around. So I gave the space a good cleaning, patched all the holes and cracks, and tried out some leftover paint colors:
I decided on this unidentified yellow; the green was a little too bright and cheerful.
