GOING INTO THE CLOSET

I had some of my FREE DOORS "STUPID" left over so I decided to make a desk in my closet…

And some shelves…

I used a door for the desk top and an old file cabinet I found sitting in the basement …

I printed out some pictures of the G-kids. WOW there’s a lot!…

This is my new favorite saying…

I also made some curtains to cover the other closet. Why would I ever use doors? DUH. Doors are for floors and walls and shelves and desks…

A couple other views…

I also rearranged my "MY WONDER WALL"  a little. I got some great advise after I posted about it  so I started playing a little. I don’t know if this is any better though…

And speaking of “The Closet”… my halves thought it would be fun to try on their sister’s swim suits…

I love your room. Did I see a SMokey the Bear. I had a Smokey The Bear Forest Ranger Club when I was little. I lived in Ohio They sent me all kinds of stuff. WOuld love to find a bear like that. Ilike what you did with the wall and the pictures.
Now those little boys are pretty normal. They love doing that at that age.
No worries.

I am loving your desk and the fact you used up a closet to do it. I may have to do something similar with my crafting/sewing room when we get a house of our own. Of course, I don't have any extra doors floating around; but, you never know what one may find.

Dan (my husband) used a door from a neighbor's trash in the past to make a worktable in the garage. We had to downsize moving here; so, that was trashed again. Too sad.

Anyway, thanks for sharing. By the way, I can remember my nephews doing the same thing when he was a little kid and he turned out alright -- perfectly normal.

Love the desk and the curtains look great with the color of your room. You do great work.

Those halves are so darned cute. Not a thing wrong with them except a little mischevious. lol

your room is amazing i just started following you when you started the room what a transformation and i do so love the wall behind the bed i rem seeing it at The Lettered Cottage

Deb said...

Oh, your room is gorgeous...you did such a great job and I ADORE how you decorate. As for "should you be worried"....our 4-year old GRAND-son put my purse on his arm and his Mom told him that was for girls...and he informed her "I am a gull"!!! HA! HA! No need to worry...they're adorable!!!

Mickey said...

As usual, you did an amazing job. Love the entire room even love the little ones. Perfect pic to show their future girlfriends :)

Gayle said...

Your 'new' bedroom is looking fabulous! And the price is RIGHT!

Um, my two boys were relentlessly dressed up as prairie girls by their older sisters and they're fairly normal. Kinda.

And your room. Girl, I cannot get over it. You have made re-do skillz. I stare and stare at every picture and wish I could have your creativity and wood working skillz.

Totally stealing so many great ideas from your post. Well, not the boys in girls suits, but ya know.

Love the closet office space! The wall looks much nicer now that you broke things up. I think the bathing suit picture should be locked away, it will make great black mail material, when he's a teenager!!

LOL- I'd say those boys are just like most boys that age! lol But...if they get to be 14 and want to put on sissy's suit...hmmm...well....you can worry about that then! Love the desk and can't believe the milage you got out of those free doors stupid! Diana

Traci said...

Wow! Can't get over how great your office space looks. I absolutely love everything you have done to create you bedroom - floors, walls, furniture just looks like it belongs. I adore how you get the perfect snapshot of your Grandchildren.....I see some bribery in the future for your halves with those swim suites on!

Lisa Loo said...

I agree with everyone that you are way over the top amazing!! And although your skillz are tremendous its your ENERGY I want!! For heavens sake woman!! I volunteer to go take a nap for you.
ANd the only thing you have to worry about those boys is when they get old enough to chase you down and tackle you to get those photos...

Jannell said...

I must agree with Lisa Loo! Gosh Woman! You are too much. Wish we were neighbors, we could have fun! I guess it is a long ways from my house to yours. Since I "met" you on your blog, my girls have started reading it too. We still have our four girls home and our two boys are out. The 15, 11 and 8-year-old have commented that they love "that Grams blog!"

Lori said...

big smile!
