|Red is fun inside a closet!!|
Our house is a 1901 bungalow style. It has a tiny staircase that leads up to a room on the left and a room on the right with a closet in the middle right at the top of the stairs. I doubt I could ever paint an entire room red and live to be happy with it, but a red closet? Definitely!

After my Honey pulled out all the carpet and tacks all the way up the stairs and on the landing and in the closet. Then I went to painting the closet. Then I painted the floor and the stairs. It was a really awful brown with lots of old paint splatters on it. It's such huge difference! Then I replaced the hideous gold tone closet knob with a fun vintage looking one.

I have a little obsession with painting closets fun colors. Perhaps it's because we've had white everything for so long as renters. All I know is that every time I open that closet up I feel a warmth of joy at the sight. It's weird but I'm an extremely visual person. I can be anxious, depressed, or even panicked in a visually displeasing environment. It's probably why I'm obsessed with making our home as soothing and calming as possible.
Here it is before...
