My linen closet was in desperate need of a makeover.
The walls needed to be repainted,
and the shelves had seen better days.
I originally planned to update the closet by stenciling a fun pattern on the walls. I quickly changed my mind after I found this unopened roll of wallpaper at the thrift store.
Priced at just $1.99, I knew it was meant to be! As an added bonus, the wallpaper was very similar to the stripes I painted last year in my hallway.
This was my first time using wallpaper. It was fairly easy to apply in such a small space. To keep myself from becoming too overwhelmed, I broke the project up in steps. First, I painted the shelves using leftover paint. The next day, I painted the trim. On the third day, I applied the wallpaper. We had to live with a mess for a few days, but the end results made it well worth it!
The top shelf was previously empty, so I added a few planters from Ikea and filled them with some faux foliage from the Dollar Store.
I reused baskets that I already had for storing things like toilet paper and extra blankets.
Clear glass containers are great storage options for soap.
An inexpensive yet time-consuming project, but in the end just the change this closet needed!
