Several weeks ago, JPE & I took everything out of our walk-in closet, so I could freshen it with a new coat of paint. Actually, I hadn't painted the closet since 1999, so the walls really "ABSORBED" a lot of paint... like a gallon and a half! I was shocked!

Changing things up!! we rearranged the closet & reinstalled the wire shelves differently! Our closet is good size, so we put our chest of drawers along one wall, which gives us more room in our bedroom. A good scrubbing and the racks looked like new. I hated the thought of buying new racks if we didn't need to! With a bit of rearranging, we had room for another long rack and a shorter one! Amazing!!

Just opposite the chest of drawers, JPE installed ALL the racks on the right side. After we got the support bars installed, we "READ" the directions & learned we had installed them incorrectly. SO, ever the "patient" worker, JPE, removed the bars and repositioned them in different places... which meant, I did some patchwork and touched up the paint before moving everything back in.

You can see... we have plenty of room for a chest of drawers (on the left) and my Grandmother's maple desk on the right. We got a "workhorse printer" for JPE's teaching (see the black printer) and have our color printer sitting next to it. JPE also purchased a larger computer monitor (sitting behind the gray printer) for the times he is working on detailed spreadsheets  - much easier on the eyes! He likes working on the dining room table, which looks over the back patio, so he moves the computer monitor downstairs when he needs it.

Feels "GREAT" to have another project checked off the list!

Cost = $35. for one new 6' foot rack (mine) +
a 4' rack over the desk + new screws to rehang the shelves.
PAINT = NO cost! used paint we already had!
