It may be a little extreme to say this closet is my Monica closet, but to me it was getting pretty bad. About a year ago I had attempted to get it organized by buying a few white storage boxes from Ikea, but that system quickly started failing and I ended up just throwing things on top the boxes.
I started by using my stud finder to mark all the studs.
this wallpaper from Target when it was on sale. I thought it would be much easier and less messy than traditional wallpaper. I'll just say, it was was first time using peel and stick wallpaper and I think it will be my last, at least for a while.
I decided to start at the top, making sure the paper was center and level. I then slowly peeled off the backing and pressed the paper to the wall working my way down.
The worst part was getting the corners smooth. I ended up cutting the paper where it met the wood then very carefully smoothed it out.
After the paper was all up on the wall I took an exacto knife and cut the excess off just where it met the wood.
I then went back and measured and installed the vertical battens. This is where I'll leave you off, but I'll be sure to share the complete closet next week!
