A chic little coat closet

Remember my amazing wallpaper finds at the Brunschwig & Fils annual warehouse sale? I'm happy to report over the weekend I wallpapered this little coat closet in our vacation home. What a difference this Christopher Norman bamboo treillage wallcovering made...now, I love opening the closet door!

The boring before...
The progress...
The wallpaper is hung, I just have a few tidbits to do (buy a shoe rack for the floor and some additonal hooks for the door) to complete the closet. Isn't it amazing what a difference wallcovering makes in a closet. Now, are you itching to do your closets? I'm counting the days until the next warehouse sale!

I always paint my closets but you having me itching to paper. Is it really hard to do a small space? This looks fabulous!

Susie @ Maddie's Nest,
The shagreen closet was easier as it did not have a large repeat like this bamboo wallcovering. When I scored these amazing wallpapers for a song I knew I was going to do all my closets...it is happiness! Let me know if you do yours!

It's stunning!!!!
I wallpapered all the closets in my house and can't imagine one without. It makes such a difference. They actually feel like little rooms!!
You were brilliant to buy all those papers at such great prices and then turned all your small spaces into jewel boxes!!!

There you go again! I so wish I had your talent. I would be hanging paper everywhere! Have a great week.

I am just LovingLovingLoving the wallpaper projects. I'd like to do some in our new place. Is it hard to take down? We're renting and I'm not sure if it's worth the trouble to have around for 2 or 3 years... thoughts?

What can I say, you're inspiring ;)

Hope you had a wonderful weekend Love!

Beatriz,
Wallpaper gets a bad rap about being hard to take down, however if you use DIF and follow the directions it's a breeze. I love a home with a perfect blend of wallpaper and paint! Go for it and share your projects with us!

This makes a huge impact!!! How fun to open the door to do something as mundane as hang up a coat --- and get a design surprise! Well done!!!

I think this is my favorite so far. I love the drama of this paper and it makes for a very chic coat closet. I bet your guest want to go and open all of your closets, I am afraid I would, Another great job,Kathysue
