Do you see what I mean. These pictures were obviously taken with basically no natural light, uh, since there isn't any in there. Also, you can see the light that is out...
Ugh, notice the painted ceiling. Who does that!? It's like a cave! You can also see that the space is very small. The door to the room is off to the side, so it's hard to take pictures of the space. However, you get the idea. Small, cluttered, stuff everywhere, yea that's what's goin' on right now. I didn't clean up at all for these pictures so it is what it is.
This space is also our pantry. We don't have a pantry in the kitchen, so we added this large shelf from Target to the room to hold food-stuffs & also a lot of our small kitchen gadgets.
But don't worry! I have so many plans for this space! First of all, that ceiling is going to be painted WHITE, and obviously, the light bulb in the one light fixture will be replaced. Then, I really want to paint stripes in here. Like these

We also store all of our cleaning supplies in this room, including our vacuum & steam mop. They are currently kinda all over the place, but for these, I plan on building a cleaning closet to put up against the wall to hold all of those cleaning things. It will contain a big area for the vacuum, plus lots of little shelves & hooks for all of those extra cleaning supplies. I have found a few online that I like the look of, that I'll likely base my design off of. Ones like this

I'm sure this project will take me a while. Since racing season has started I've been a lot slower because I rarely have a day off work to get things done. Plus, I still have one pretty big project to do in the master bedroom before I can get started on this. But, it'll get done eventually & I'm pretty excited about all of the ideas I have planned. Are you planning any major room overhauls this summer?
