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.

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.
