The wife and kid went on vacation, so it's the perfect time to empty everything out of the master bedroom closet and paint it. I should have known that it was going to take longer than I expected, all repairs and renovations on mid-century homes seem to. I was hoping to get things done in a few hours, but two days isn't bad for the outcome.
Here's what things looked like before I got started.
My wife's side
Must have been painted by a shorty because they didn't paint the top
The first surprise was that my wife's side of the closet was painted wallpaper. I was planning on just painting both sides white and being done with things. But the wallpaper meant that I had to tear some things out first.
The second surprise was finding this on the top shelf
The things you find when renovating in Texas
Great mid-century packaging though
The final surprise was under a random piece of wood that probably held a shelf at one point, some of the original wallpaper.
After pulling out the wallpaper I couldn't bring myself to paint the wood, it was just too pretty. Plus I really like the white on one side, wood on the other look. So here's what things look like now.
