Easy Closet Makeover

Inexpensive Closet Makeover

This was an easy closet makeover and the perfect weekend project.

This post is a sponsored post by Dutch Boy®Paints  I take pride in reviewing only products that fit my brand and will benefit my readers. While this post is sponsored, all the opinions are my own.

My boys share a room and a closet, and I haven’t touched their closet since we moved in over ten years ago. It needed a huge cleanout (they’ve accumulated a lot of stuff in the past decade), but the paint had yellowed and needed a refresh.

Here’s a before and after:

Yes, it’s only paint! Can you believe the difference?

You probably already know that I’m a huge fan of Dutch Boy paint, and I’ve used it in my library, primary bedroom, dining room, and kitchen island.

When I began this project, I pulled out my Dutch Boy fan deck and looked through all the gorgeous color options.

I decided to go with a sophisticated shade of green, and gave the boys the following options:

  • Promenade Gray 422-4DB
  • Niagra Valley 422-5DB
  • Limestone Slate 422-6DB

The boys chose the gorgeous color Niagara Valley 422-5DB.

I used Platinum® Plus Interior Paint & Primer in eggshell for the walls and Platinum® Plus Cabinet, Door & Trim Paint in semi-gloss for the trim and shelving.

Projects Made Simple

I LOVE the Dutch Boy Platinum Plus line of paint. The Platinum Plus Cabinet, Door + Trim Paint is so durable, and I love that it’s water-based and makes for easy cleanup.

The Platinum Plus Interior Paint + Primer offers amazing coverage and saves time since it requires fewer coats of paint.

Thanks to the paint and a little time, it looks like the boys have a brand new closet – AND, the entire project only cost $120!

  • The boys decluttered and donated and/or moved things into the attic.
  • The paint was $80 in total.
  • The other $40 was spent on a full-length mirror.
  • I rounded up all the black hangers in our house to make it look more cohesive.
  • I added a rug I had previously used in their bathroom.

This is the perfect weekend project. So grab some paint and update those closets!
