This is kind of the look I'm wanting for kitchen pantry. Use glass and wire storage. Also like the idea of putting maybe contact paper as wallpaper to add texture and design to wall. Add rope lights to inside of closet.
There are so many ways to get creative with paint effects and paint techniques and sometimes, a little out-of-the-box thinking can bring about surprising results. Like wrapping wool around a paint roller to paint on walls, wallpaper, fabric, or even furniture. http://www.home-dzine.co.za/decorating/decorate-creative.htm
