A Whole Lot o’ Little Closet | Closet Remodel Part 2

Closet Remodel: Part 1 | Part 3 |

With shelf demo out of the way and a whole bunch of holes now in my way I had a bit more on my plate than I had planned on. As Katie mentioned in the previous post, I grabbed a bit of joint compound and got to work. While at Home Depot I had looked all over for a small container of quick-drying joint compound but couldn’t seem to find anything other than the standard contractor size stuff and trust me, I did not need that much for 10 little holes. So, after about 20 minutes of rolling the dough, it was time to play the waiting game.

All in all though, things were looking good.

Looking back, waiting was probably a good thing seeing that the primer I planned on using was out in the garage. Frozen. Solid. So I brought it inside to thaw out.

Now let’s jump to 9 hours later when things were (mostly) dry and the sanding began. Why so ambitious? I was trying to finish up as much as possible before Katie got home from work. It was supposed to be a suprise. But per usual, I had gotten in a little over my head and still had a ton of work to do. — Suprise! … After a couple rounds of light sanding and a thin coat of the now thawed primer we were in better shape.

But I still couldn’t let Katie come home and not SEE my vision. So I disregarded the suggested hour of dry time and only gave it 30 minutes. Then got to work painting.

By the time Katie got home things were looking great! … But still not very finished per se.

(sorry… forgot to get a picture of this stage for you guys!)

The next day while I was at work, Katie took care of finishing up all of the trim (thanks love!) And then… things got busy and we didn’t touch it for a week…

Let me tell you, there is nothing worse than stepping over piles of clothing every morning and every night for 5 days straight. Finally, with a bit of free time, we got down to business. And that will be in Part 3. 🙂

What projects are you guys working on? Anyone know of any quick dry joint compound???
