The Closet Dilemma

My plan to redo my closet isn't turning out quite like I was expecting. I have all of my projects lined up and things selected and even a couple of plans completed. Here's the predicament....

This weekend while recovering an old ottoman, my husband comes in the bedroom and says, "Where's that going?" I proudly say, "in my closet." His reply, "Why are you wasting it in there?" With just a few words, he had burst my bubble. He's right. Why am I wasting it in there? I wasn't expecting it to look that good. It looks better than the one I have in my bedroom AND the one in the living room. This should be a good thing, right? However, I feel like I've just opened up a can of worms. I can't blame him completely because I already moved the trunk that I refinished (for the closet) into the master bedroom. Ugh! I see where this is going.

While shopping the other day, I found this beautiful and well priced chandelier. I was really excited until it dawned on me that this fixture was prettier than the one in my kitchen. How can I buy a new light fixture for the closet when now I really need this for the kitchen? Uh-oh.

It's amazing to me that it took my husband about two seconds to confirm the thoughts that I evidently was already having. What do I do now? This closet might never get finished! HELP!!!


  1. That IS a beautiful ottoman - and I'd be happy to have it in a walk in closet - in fact I'd hang around my closet if it were a walk in lol
    An ottoman - a chandelier - sounds heavenly to me!!!

    1. Thanks Suzan. That makes me feel better. I DO need to do the closet.

  2. Don't listen to him! That's what husbands like to do! A chandelier in the closet sounds so posh to me! You need to spoil yourself sometimes. I need to see a picture of the chandelier!

    1. You're right Khammany, if I have to live with the ceiling fan in the bedroom, then I should be able to splurge for a chandelier in the closet. After all, I would have spent the money on it in the bedroom if I could have.
