A Small Walk-In Closet

Here is a corner view of the small walk-in closet off of the master bedroom and study. It originally opened to the kitchen for food storage, with a Cape Cod root cellar basement below it. I designed a simple layout around an antique Swedish dresser, old mirror and Restoration Hardware light fixture.

The ceiling has two of the widest boards in the house and required disc sanding the boards and stripping the beams after repairs were made. We added insulation (found in the attic) above the ceiling of the connecting desk area, before closing it up with trim. The construction and painting was done over Labor Day weekend by Bill.

Here is the Restoration Hardware sconce I got during their sale which adds 80 watts of light and is cool.
The closet costs were about $350 for the paint, furniture, and light. There is a nice mirror on the right wall.
