The minute we seem to have any spare time, I seem to fill it! Our latest project was to tackle the storage in my studio which has started to fill the kitchen too.
I try and keep a little something of all my dots and spots stuff over at the house so I can deal with web and NOTHS orders more efficiently. As the range has grown so the space has diminished and I am accumulating more and more boxes.
Everything has to be kept boxed as the sun fades everything - the whole thing has got to that point of complete annoyance, so we popped into Ikea on our return from our day trip to Birmingham last Friday (well it was on the way)
On Friday evening we cleared the space
and 'Voila', Jeff swore a little and I had a new cupboard. We choose a wardrobe, at maximum height and depth that we could get away with, in the space available.
It has sliding doors, another space saving idea.
The shelves are nice and deep and the internal drawers are fabulous - so much so that I am going to drag everyone one to Ikea on Wednesday - as it will be on our route home, to get 4 more.
The plan is to now change things around a little in the kitchen, utilising my new found space. If we can create a little usable space, we may take the house off the market for a year or so and make do. We have only had 4 viewings and recognise that the market is so very slow at the moment. I'm a strong believer in things happening for a reason - maybe it's just not our time to move yet!
