Closets are often the spaces that get neglected in even the most stylish and organized of homes. As I get ready to start my spring cleaning, I’m pulling some inspiration from Sara’s coat closet transformation.

After seeing what Sara over at Russet Street Reno did with paint and an old vegetable bin, I’m not surprised to see that she was able to transform her coat closet from plain to cute with a just a little color.

Actually, Sara did more than just add a little color (Ralph Lauren’s Reflecting Pool, to be specific). Working with the existing framework in the closet, Sara adapted one of the wood shelves and added another to give her family more storage. Painting the shelves and trim in white brings a crispness to the look of the closet.

Sara spread the work out over a few days so you can see the full project in three separate posts Coat Closet Part 2, Coat Closet Painted, and Our Closet is Full of Coats Again.
