Coat Closet Makeover

We have a coat closet in our laundry room that has been stuffed FULL of coats and shoes and backpacks since the day we moved in 5 years ago. We never painted it or did anything with the unfinished floor. In fact, it has been so FULL that we couldn't see the walls or the floor anyway...something HAD to be done!!

This weekend I filled laundry baskets with all the contents of the closet and got busy!!

Yes, that is mint green paint.....but it's empty!!

So dirty & grimy. YUCK!!
Unfinished floor with water stains. Eeeewwwww.
I removed the old hooks & just freshened them up with a coat of yellow spray paint. Painted the walls, added shelves that my hubby cut to size. Finished it with stick on tiles we had leftover from other projects & baseboard my sweet husband cut & installed for me too :)
And here it is with the kids' coats & backpacks hung up.

They each get 1 shelf for shoes & Shaun & I get the bottom for ours.
So happy with the results!!!!
One last look "before" and "after".

This was a great weekend project. The best part is we did not spend a PENNY. We made use of whatever we had laying around :)
