UNDER THE STAIRS CLOSET REVEAL!

$100 Closet Makeover | www.sprinkledwithcolor.com

It's the last week of the the $100 Room Challenge and time for the big reveal!  In the previous two weeks we had installed a coat rod on one side of the closet, and wall hooks, a shelf and the door organizer on the other side.  We also painted the stripes on the wall last week (tutorial here).

This week I spray painted the baskets to the door organizer gold:

I also found some bins for the top shelf.  I looked at Target and Michaels and they had cute options but on a whim I also stopped by the Dollar Tree and they had these fabric bins for only $1 each!  They are the perfect size to store seasonal items and we have a bin for swimming accessories, winter hats and gloves, and summer toys.

The last addition was a rug that we originally had by our kitchen sink.

The total cost that we spent updating the closet is as follows:
Pole sockets for the closet rod: $6
Bike hook (which we are no longer using): $1
Door organizer: $44
Gold spray paint: $6.50
Baskets: $4

Which brings me to a total of $61.50!  We did shop around our house for some of the items like the rug and the wall hooks and shelf to keep this under budget.  Overall, I'm pretty happy with the space and it is super functional now with all the storage organizers.  Most importantly, I was able to make this our coat closet with the new closet rod and that was our main goal from the start!

  20. Be that as it may,http://staircasedesign.xyz/original-staircase-construction-goose-step/#Features_of_designing_of_the_inter-storey_marching_steps paying little respect to if your vacuum is light weight or overwhelming it can get rather tedious carrying the vacuum here and there every week, if not more.

  21. I live what you did ti your room-under-the-stairs, especially the baskets on the back if the door. I noticed that you asked for ideas as to what to do with the baskets. I think the gold paint looks really smart but I have two different ideas which should not cost much at all. Perhaps you could use the ideas elsewhere ir once you get tired of your present look. The first is to thread ribbon through the slats on the front of the basket. How you do this would depend entirely on how "cute" you wanted the baskets to look. You could put two contrasting ribbons on the front, one colour at the top and another colour underneath. Obviously, since you are weaving the ribbon through the gold wire, you would choose colours that complement the gold (perhaps cream and brown?) Alternatively, you could go with one wide ribbon that will be as close to the height of the basket as possible. You could put a decorative bow on the front if you think that would be "cute" or one at each end of the basket. People have different ideas if what "cute" is, so I am suggesting a few ideas. You could put ribbon on the base and sides of the basket if you wanted to easily see what was in the basket, but still decorate it.The other idea that I thought of, stemmed from your fabric baskets. If you can make your own fabric baskets, then you could use a matching fabric for the fabric baskets and the wire baskets. You could cover the wire baskets with an elasticated piece of fabric (but then you couldn't see the contents easily. Alternatively, you could overlock fabric strips of the correct height, and use the strips in the same way as you would use the ribbon. Threading the fabric through the wires of the basket. I think that it could look quite lively with matching fabric and wire baskets. The wire baskets are quite shallow so I don't think that covering the front with something, would be a problem. Congratulations on a job well done and all the best with your future DIY projects. From Jeanette Kent in South Africa. 😊
