Pretty Storage

I have been working all week on my basement built in storage area , making doors, that was an interesting challenge , I priced out doors all over the place , but just the tall upper doors would be about $100 a piece , that seems a bit much for basement storage to me I decided to just make simple door frames . I toyed with mirror in the middle but went with an easier option of using fabric to make pretty panels for the doors , to keep them light , functional and most of all gorgeous...I am so thrilled with how this has turned out ...and best of all this was discount fabric which was $30.00 a meter but with the buy one get two free deal , it was a bargain and I have lots to make into the bench cushion and most likely pillows for my bedroom .{ from fabricland canada} I made the bottom doors out of planks of pine that I had left over from another project, this project was an after thought really I had thought of buying some easy closets from Ikea , but I am so glad I went with this one of a kind storage unit, after all this is a hang out on a regular basis with Mason and Sophie and Mason's friends most often.
Here is a close up of the beautiful fabric , it is a stitched on feathering pattern.
I really need to go look at flooring options , this subfloor is just awful , I get caught on it all the time and try finding a screw you dropped on it , it is camoflage for screws.
This basement of ours is finally feeling like a nicer place to spend some time , I very excited to see it come along a little at a time.

I think I should paint my little tool peg board , black? or blue? or white?hmmmm thoughts?
