Transforming Guest Room into Display Room / Walk-In Closet!

I recently moved into my new place and as promised, I’ve been busy turning my spare bedroom into a display room for all my junk! With all the fabulous ladies on tPF, I’ve been inspired by several members (particularly bagladyseattle) who took their time and shared with us how they miraculously turned a very ordinary room into something truly spectacular. Since a couple of months ago, I’ve been planning for this transformation, but could not really put my ideas into action since I knew I would be moving.

So I’m very excited to show you all this room! I met a new friend recently who helped me assemble the middle shelf with glass doors (see pix below), but I didn’t want to bother him again for more work. So I discovered another side of me with my hidden manly  powers as I put my own muscles to work haha! I also saved at least 80$ if I’d decided to hire someone! 😀

My Louboutin dolls and other toys:


It was really fun doing this entire project and installing the shelves myself, but not so much when I hammered my thumb 3 times…. lol After all this work with smashed up nails, I sat back and decided to do my own French manicure. My first attempt turned out great! I used nail polishes from Rimmel and OPI for reference.

First I painted the whites – about 2-3 coats very slowly with Rimmel’s 110 French White.
Next, apply 1 coat of Rimmel’s 140 French Rose.
Finish with 2 coats of OPI’s Passion nail polish.

Final result, ta da!!! Perfection!!! I just saved myself at least 50$ from going to a professional (and I honestly think I do a better job… My last manicure left me with all these bubbles and the whites were not even!). Well I hope you all enjoyed my summer closet project and thanks for visiting everyone!
