August 30 2012,
After painting the closet doors, I (not we), decided to rip down the interior of the yellow door room closet. I forgot to take a full picture of what the closet looked like before I ripped it down, but I did take pictures of the different section of the closet just in case we decided to put back the wooden shelving.
While hubby was getting his pool tip changed, I ripped down the closet. This included two layers of MDF board which exposed many holes in the wall.
Below is the before demolition picture.
I then fixed the holes in the walls by using joint compound, also known as mudding. After approximately 5 layers of mudding, including drying time, the wall was flat.
Below is the picture after mudding. Note that the walls in the room look pink in this picture, but the real color is whitish gray.
There are some areas where the wall is not completely flat. Because we will have stuff on the shelves, no one will ever see it, except for the next owners who will probably say, "What were they thinking?"
If you have been following the progress of this house, we seem to do things backwards. First we did the closet doors, then the interior of the closet. It should have been the other way around. At least it's done right?
The only thing left with this closet is the pull cord for the light. Stay tuned for the result of that!
Now go start and finish a project. If I can do it, you can definitely do it too!
