I just finished my closet renovation and wanted to share. We had to remove 9ish layers of wallpaper and the last two layers had at least 3 layers of paint each. I started the project stupidly thinking I'd just take down the two shelves that weren't working for me and put up track shelves. /sigh

I painted it with leftover paints mixed together, used shelves and brackets we already had, and purchased the track shelf stuff. It now looks like this.

It started out like this though. Blech. You can't see it in the first photo, but there was a lot of damage. And that white? It's paint over other paint over wallpaper over paints over 8 layers of wallpaper. eww

And here's the obligatory blog link  with more photos of little details.

I know what a pain it is to remove just *one* layer of wallpaper and paint, I cannot fathom that many layers!!!

It looks super, what I can't fathom is why anyone would wallpaper a closet?
