Spring Fever Challenge

Tuesday, April 8, 2014


Trev's carpentry know-how is my kryptonite. 

I'd never tell him this of course, but his DIY skills are far superior to my own; so much so, that the idea of tackling a project without him often paralyzes me. Trust me when I say my inner feminist is none to pleased about this factoid.

When the Para Blog Crew decided to host a Spring Fever Challenge, I was determined to do something independent of my better looking half.

Insert 2nd closet. Once upon a time (circa 2012) Jen from Rambling Renovators added some horizontal pizazz to her broom closet and I fell head over heels. It's no secret that I'm like the BIGGEST fan of stripes and incorporating them somewhere in #casaknol was an absolute must. Initially I envisioned thick, bold, evenly spaced black lines to adorn the inside of our new coat closet, but with the Spring'ish theme and the precise tape measuring that those stripes would require, I did some rethinking... hmmm (picture me being all pensive-like).
After much deliberation (a whopping 30 seconds in the Windsor Plywood parking lot with my fan deck), I decided on these PARA PAINT COLOURS:
    Jo Jo Whitewash (PF-17) - wall + trim
    Walkin' in the Rain (P5204-85) - single stripe
    Machu Picchu (P5167-73) - main stripes

I didn't start working on my Spring Fever Challenge project until Saturday afternoon so needless to say there was NO way is h-e-double hockey sticks I was going to let my base coat of Jo Jo Whitewash "cure" for the recommended 3 days. I seriously started FrogTaping stripes 2 hours after my paint application and I'm happy to report that impatience/procrastination didn't bite me in my a$$ this time.
How did I settle on Machu Picchu for the stripe colour? Easy.
The colour inspiration came from my other not so secret addiction... NETFLIX #truestory
Trev-bob and I just recently started watching "Suits" (oh my gawd SO freaking good) and the law office of Pearson Hardman features a similar hued accent wall that looks mucho ahh-mazing.

I cut some vinyl chalkboard paper I had kicking around into the shape of a "house", borrowed an idea from Sarah M Style by turning a cabinet handle into a chalk holder, taped up some old family photos and mini-prints and voila! coat closet is finito (however we will be swapping the painted doweling for a piece of steel pipe this next week). 
I'm pretty proud of my Para Paints 'no skeletons in here, just stripes' coat closet. The fact I did the majority* of it all by myself has resulted in some serious chest puffing. Please check out my fellow crew members' Spring Fever projects and be sure to link up your own (I promise it's waaaay more fun than cleaning).


* I guess now's a good time for me to come clean... I may have solicited Handy Manny (aka Trev-bob's) help with the ClosetMaid shelving, cutting the laminate flooring and installing the trim. With that being said, I swear on my iPhone's life that I painted and shopped for every single thing in this post.

Things I love about this post: (1) Stripes! Stripes in closets!, (2) your obsession with Suits. LOVE that show, and (3) your prowess with a paintbrush. You rocked this project!

I just looooooove those stripes! I've been wanting to add some green stripes to one of the walls in little J's room and you just gave me the push to go ahead and do it! xoxo! Looks fabulous!

OMG, I LOVE SUITS. Amazing show, so I obviously love that you got your inspiration from there. The stripes look awesome, your closet is kick-a$$ and the colour rocks. I think even Lewis Litt would approve wholeheartedly (and we know how hard he is please).
