Bedroom Spring Cleaning and New Closet

May was spring cleaning for me and hubby helped me by making some changes to our bedroom.  We live in a 100-year-old home and with any house no matter the age, I clean the entire house starting in May or June depending on when the woodstove is shut down for the winter heating season.  This year I wanted to start with cleaning our bedroom and painting it.

Before I start cleaning I always try to go through our clothes and sort winter from summer clothing.  Well, our bedroom is a really nice size but it only had a 3×5 foot closet and it held only his clothes.  It was chocked full of clothes he wears everyday, winter clothes, summer clothes, hunting clothes, coats, sweaters, you name it was packed full.

I asked for a new closet and my wish was granted.

The finished closet has two rods, one at top and one down lower for organizing and room.  Shirts on the top and pants on the bottom.  The old closet will now hold his coats, jackets and shoes/boots.

There’s nothing like a fresh coat of white paint on the ceiling, trim and doors to brighten up a room.

  1. I’m just not into it anymore or have the patience. I want/need to do the living room before another winter and change the color and think I”ll get a guy that did some work for me when I was selling my uncle’s house. He did a great job and it wasn’t that bad money wise. Like you, I’m doing parttime work to pay for things like this.

  2. Very nice! If there is one task I hate doing more than any other it is painting. I just don’t have the patience and it’s getting almost time to redo some of our ceilings so I’ll be working extra to pay someone to do it lol
