The Space: (you were warned, I said it was ugly)
for safety’s sake when my brother + little kids stayed with us (which
doubles the ugliness). You can see in my amateur sketch the location and depth
of the shelves. The space will be tight, but 100% effective. Oh and it will be
- Move the current light
- Frame the walls
- Add in electrical outlets
- Put up drywall (mud,
tape, and sand it)
- Install door (we found this narrow door at
a local salvage store and are smitten)
- Install beadboard
- Calk and paint
- Install shelves
- Load with food and bask
in its glory!
A long time ago I shared some photos of our bedroom. We had finished our headboard and the room was ‘good enough’ to take you all through, but still missing many finishing touches and a few essential items – like nightstands. Today I share with your our bedroom update, complete with good lighting (you’re welcome) and our DIY Ikea Rast Nightstands.
I had searched tirelessly for nightstands that would maximize the space on either side of the bed. These fit like a glove and had the storage we were craving. They were also cheap, which meant that some money could be spent fixing them up and buying hardware.
Is the room still a work in project? Always. But it is finally a much prettier, happier and functional work in project. I hope you enjoy.
