The two have absolutely nothing in common. But who cares. We can mix and match, right?
First off, the company I work for is amazeballs, and they recently took us on an outing to a place called White Oak Conservation Center, for the day, which is basically a ginormous piece of land that houses exotic animals like giraffes, rhinos, zebras, etc., but also has a ridiculously nice golf course, cabins for rent, pool, the whole nine yards. I sort of think of it like a safari resort for the wealthy. Which means John and I will never be able to afford to go on our own. But it’s all good.
We made our way to each habitat by way of trolley, and we saw and learned about all kinds of animals, most of which are from Africa. I luurrve animals, so I ate it up.
The rhinos were sweetie pies. It really doesn’t get much cuter than a baby rhino. And we got to pet them. Double win.
Feeding the giraffes was really cool too. They aren’t afraid to take the branch right out of your hand. I even got some giraffe slobber on my hand. Yessss.
In one habitat, a dog and cheetah are best friends. They’ve grown up together so they think they are brother and sister. The dog sees himself as the leader, so he protects her and will fight anything that threatens her. This was soooo flipping awesome to see in real life because John and I have wasted a few too many hours watching YouTube videos of odd animal friends, like this one.
So that’s that. My employer kicks butt.
Moving on to the closet. We haven’t touched the master closet since the day we moved in, and it’s been needing a little help. Two old rods don’t provide all the functionality that we need. That poor rod on the top is hurting. We also feel that an updated closet will help our house sell, when that time comes.
We took down the rods, patched the holes, then painted the inside BM Classic Gray #1548. We had some paint left over from our bathroom renovation and we are already planning on using Classic Gray on our bedroom walls, so why not put it in the closet as well?!
I know my man looks good, but quit checking out his butt already. He’s all mine!
We gave the yellowish trim a fresh coat of Glidden’s off the shelf white in Satin. Seriously, what’s with all the off-white paint? Doors? Trim? I’m over it. Notice below how big of a difference it makes to paint the trim white. It really brightens it up.
And finally, John moved his stuff back in here. Well, not all of it. We wanted you to be able to see the shelves before he put all of his
crap clothes all over them. You know, because his clothes don’t look nearly as cute as mine.
We’re still debating adding some type of shoe shelving on the bottom left, but for $170 and about 3 hours of our time, we feel good about it! And we definitely think it’ll more than pay for itself when we decide to sell.
As for all my stuff, I use the closet in one of the spare bedrooms, and that closet is getting a makeover soon as well. That also means I’m going to have to clean it out. We’ll get there.
