Trash Closet Makeover

It probably sounds silly to give your trash closet a makeover, but the walls were looking so bad that I had to do something about it.  In our last house I painted the walls of our trash closet with eggshell finish black paint and that worked really well too.  It made the walls wipeable and the dark paint hid any stains.  

This time around I wanted to do something a little more fun.  I found this removable wallpaper at Michaels in the clearance section.  I looked online and it looks like they don't sell it anymore, but there are so many great removable wallpapers out there.  Target has some really cute options.  

I had to take down the wire shelf to put up the wallpaper because it would have been a pain to work around.  It was a fairly easy process.  The hardest part was working in such a small space and trying to get the pattern to match up.  

I also added a few hooks.  I used these and they work great.  I was a little hesitant to put holes in the paper, but I don't think I'll have any need to move them so it's not a big deal.  

I also added these baskets to the shelf to store trash bags, light bulbs, and other miscellaneous things.  They fit perfectly and come in lots of different colors.  We zip tied the white baskets to the wire shelving to hold extra vacuum attachments and other cleaning items.  

We also had an electrician add an outlet so we can keep our rechargeable vacuum in here too.  

This was one of those things that was on my to do list for a while and I'm so glad I finally did it.  It not only made it look better, but it's so much more functional now too!
