Coat Closet Before and After and DIY Project Parade

We're further along in the closet. Hurray! Here is it now...

Here was the chaos before without purpose or organization.  Pretty bad, huh?

Just baseboard trim and lighting to go.  Full details at the DIY Club coming tomorrow.

Mr. DIY also installed a new exterior door and storm door this weekend.

We're working in the dining room too and sanded and installed half of the trim/molding for another doorway we're working on. More coming soon on that project. AND I de-cluttered my blog.  :)

Don't forget! Wed. is the DIY Holiday Highlights. I'm not even started but I'm so excited about Christmas.  So, the annual DIY Show Off holiday party starts Wed.  With a freshly painted living room and new dining room look this year - I need your inspiration and festive ideas! There's a holiday giveaway to kick off the season too!
