Well, it is officially 2008 and just like everybody else the new years resolutions have been made. I have even broke one within 24 hours yesterday. I have been motivated and inspired to do a build in our master closet with some basic cabinetry to store clothes folded and some rods to hang clothes in our walk in closet. Currently we have closetmaid wire shelves and rods to hang clothes. I could add more storage for clothes and shoes and it would be more aesthetically pleasing. This of course depends on cost. i am currently designing the corner cabinets and rectangle cabinets that will have doors and a few drawers. I will also have some shelves for shoes for the boss. Then place rods in between. I thought it would be an awesome gift for the misses and get rid of all the plastic containers that are currently in there. My plan is to build everything and when I am ready to install everthing, I will give it to her. I may try to pull the ultimate surprise and do everything while she is gone, but emptying the closet is going to be a huge job so i don’t know if I can pull that off. I am also horrible at keeping secrets. The other problem is that I have committed to some other projects so it will probably be a project that I touch every know in then. I am thinking of using some lighter woods such as maple or poplar (I haven’t worked with maple before). I am afraid dark colored woods will make the space look small as it is only 8’ X 8’. Wish me luck. I will keep you posted.

wishing you luck! She’s going to love it when you get it installed (and re-loaded).

I’m curious about the “already broken resolution” but I won’t ask :)

The closet will have a much better success – one reason being that you committed it to written form and have told the world.

I have a real bad habit of being on a 2 year wait list for projects, as it usually takes me that long to design, decide, and complete. That goes for anything in the house as I like to do the majority of my home projects. It is just aggravating as we are trying to save for a new heat pump ($2800). Plus we are expecting a new baby at the end of the month. I hear those little buggers are expensive. But, what better way to have more time than to be organized.

Thanks for adding me to your list. It is nice to see another Kentuckian (as well as a Cat fan) on LJs. I agree with MsDebbieP about the relationship between writing something down and being successful at completing the project. But with a new baby on the way you had better get started on it soon because you will have no spare time after the baby is born.

Congratulations and keep us posted on your progress (both with the baby and your closet remodel).
