I went to put some laundry away yesterday, and I was fed up. I’d had it with this disaster of a closet.
So I postponed my general house cleaning and laundry and headed to Ikea. I knew I had some boards down in the basement, and I thought I’d get brackets to turn those boards into shelves running along the bottom of the closet.
When I got back from Ikea, I started sawing a board to the right length. 30 minutes and a sore bicep later, I hauled the board upstairs and realized it was too narrow to be a good shelf. Luckily, I found some ready-made shelves from an old Ikea bookshelf we had up in our apartment. I broke two drill bits trying to get those brackets in, but I finally had my shelves. Toss in some 99 cent boxes (which happen to match the blue room perfectly!) and the afters shots are looking good!
