Office Walk-in Closet

Nick and I began working on the large walk-in closet in the office this weekend.  We believe this closet was originally the master closet before the master suite was added on.  It has the size to prove it too.  It's 8 feet wide, and 4 feet deep.  It will make a great house storage closet, since there are not really any good storage closets in the house.

So here's what it was:

It was cleared out, to begin the reno process.

We removed the old, out of service security system, and added some lighting.  We decided to add a plug-in track lighting with a switch by the outlet.  This may not be the permanent solution, but the closet desperately needs light.  We may get the closet wired when we do other electric work.
Here's the now lit closet:

We have also filled holes with a light weight filler, and painted to give us a clean slate to work with.

Next weekend we plan on getting wood, cutting and painting them to prepare for installation.
