well freecycle came up trumps for us the other day (again!) .. Ive been saying for ages we need more storage in our bedroom.. the poor hubbys clothes were squashed to death as my coat collection was slowly taking over his wardrobe, and i didn't even bother to iron his shirts until he actually wore them as they always got creased anyway!
now obviously there was no mention of me getting rid of these coats.. * you cant have enough coats...can you mum!?* we just needed more cupboard space..
had a look on the ikea website and saw one that would fit the alcove space £101 it would cost so we thought we'd just save up a bit..
a few days later up popped an offer post from my local freecycle. for a wardrobe, for exactly the same size..
so off went the hubby to pick it up from the lovely lady who had offered it..
i think he was trying to get into my good books as a few days before we had that tv put in our room didnt we and then as its a little tv/video ( video... we are so retro arnt we!) .. he'd got boxes of old videos off my sister so these were all over the bedroom i was not a happy bunny!
anyway its fits in rather nicely and initially i was going to paint it as i paint everything wooden give it a pretty vintage shabby chic slapdash paint job !.. but to be honest i quite like it with the blue walls of my bedroom and also it matches my bed so i might keep it like that for now..
got some blue flowery boxes to hold the wretched videos .. i mean no wonder DVDs were invented they are so much thinner and don't get in the way!!
the massive box of friends videos are now stashed in the bottom of the wardrobe!!..
so the rooms had a bit of move around and Ive put the little table that was in the other alcove which has now been taken over by a chest of drawers and tv (mmm no comment!) Ive put this in front of the window for now.. not sure how long it will stay there but for now its got a little home!
so now i have both of the ikea pax wardrobes ( extremely roomy wardrobes!!) all to myself
to be honest they so need sorting out.. its actually bursting at the seams at the minute .. but I'm waiting to do my autumn winter/spring summer change over so I'm not that bothered at the minute.. but there's a lot of wardrobe space for me now Mwahhaahahaa ( evil laugh) which just means that's even more things to look out for in the charity shops and on eBay..
once its all nice and organised I'll give you a little tour inside!! ( this blog gets more rock and roll every day i know!! )
so got thinking .. the lion is the hubby for his bravery in letting me turn the house into a floral patchwork quilt.. and take over all his wardrobe space.. obviously im the witch ( but a nice one!) for turning the house into a floral patchwork quilt and taking over all his wardrobe space and the wardrobe.. well enough said !!!
