We purchased our home in 2016, at the time, homes were expensive, he just started his job, and my credit was horrible so I couldn’t help, (not like my job paid me good anyways) but we were struggling. We have a pit and obviously, if you own one, you would understand why it was so difficult to rent. During our home search it was difficult trying to find a home in our budget in the better neighborhoods. Our house sits right on the other border of the “bad neighborhood”, but it was decently nice and so we decided to purchase it. (And our neighborhood is actually super quiet which I love by the way.) We weren’t looking for a forever home, we were just looking for a “just for now” home.
Anyways, long story short, we’ve finally decided to start small projects to fix things here and there. Our home is old and built in 1918. Minor updates here and there but it still needs a lot of work.
We started up small, by painting some rooms here and there. We started on the built in buffet in the dining room but gave up because we couldn’t agree on new cabinets or if we just needed to refinish the old ones.
Then here comes me, who decides, I need to update my closet in the foyer. Our foyer is decently big with pretty big size closet. Hell, its the biggest one in the house! I decided to remove the hanger rod and the shelves on one side of the closet and put up new shelving for my (our) shoes. 🙂
Here’s the pictures from the process, empty closet to drawing out where the studs were so I could make sure to put the shelf holders in correctly, to painting it white, staining the shelves, and with DONE!
And here it is with my shoes. Excuse the fabric. I had went to a textile yard sale and was too lazy to take it into my craft room (because its a big mess in there, maybe a new project for it soon. :))
And… Just a few photos from my front foyer. Thanks for stopping by! ❤ Rosee
