On the weekend, Luke and I actually shared a little home improvement project, that we managed to start and finish in a day. We were trying to eek out some more storage space in our bedroom.
Our bedroom has an old fashioned built in robe, that has 2 narrow full length hanging cupboards (one at either end) with a big gap in the middle for a mirrored “dressing table” with drawers below. This gives Luke and I a grand total of 71 cm width of hanging space each. We were sick of our clothes being crushed, so decided to make use of the mirrored cavity in the middle.
Luke added a hanging rail, and I made a cute little curtain, which we hung on one of those stretchy covered spring things attached inside the top of the space. Now we have a place (75 more cm to share) to hang some of our shirts, that don’t need the full length space to hang.
I am quite pleased with how this project turned out, not only because of the extra space, but because I like the fabric. It also makes me smile, because it looks like we have a little puppet theatre in our bedroom. Does that make us weird?
