Making Progress

This weekend was spent making room in the closet for the California Closet fellow to evaluate my current situation and make room for the workers when they come to install the system. The good news is that we will be able to use the system I had at my old house without any cutting or refitting. He is going to recheck measurements, because of the window on the back wall only the corner shelf and one cabinet will fit. The other three cabinets will fit on the side wall (which is the unseen wall at left of the picture).

I tried to stand in the same place I did for the previous post picture so you can see the progress. I think I did pretty good, you can still see the leaning surface pieces at the lower left of the photo (a bit less in this picture though).  I filled the bookshelves, which are now behind boxes. I think this will be enough room to put the system back up, but I am having them create a matching desk (it will be freestanding) and I think there may be a chair, box and a few plastic drawers in the way! This week the Closet fellow will call me with an estimate and possible install dates. Then the real organization work will start!!

I think that covers it for now, but I just noticed if you can enlarge the photo, you will see the baseboard on the back wall. It is still pink, just one of the colors of the walls. This room had two pink and two yellow walls - including baseboard. We plan to change all the upstairs baseboards to light wood. Also at the top middle, followers of this blog may notice the stuffed duck dog toy. After only three weeks, the brand new one sprung a leak at the neck!! We had the other duck over a year before it ripped a seam. But now I think I can get to my needles and thread to make repairs. I may have to buy duck from a different place next time.

Glad you could reuse some of the old system! I know you are anxious to get it completed!

I definitely see a difference. I hope that everything goes at a quick pace with the closet and everything else. There is nothing better than the feeling of everything in it's rightful place.
