When the idea first came up to build a dressing room I was assured it would only take a couple of weeks to do but that is not the case! Instead it has been months in the making but I finally feel the end may be in sight…which is probably just as well as the hanging rail I am currently using is threatening to fall over and is being propped up with a pile of suitcases.
The Husband has spent weeks and weeks working on it and developing his ideas and with a bit of help from his dad we are now getting close to seeing it all come together. A builder actually gave The Husband the original idea and while I am desperate to get it finished it has definitely been a good decision. We are looking to transform the box room next to our bedroom into the dressing room because while our bedroom is a really good size, there is not much space for wardrobes as we have kept the original fireplace in.
When we bought the house the room we are using was the kitchen of the second flat and nothing had been done to it since we had taken out the old units. Hours were spent stripping everything back and then The Husband started on installing the individual wall panels.
In order to get as much storage as possible we are going to have three corner units and then three shelf and drawer units. Once the dividing walls went up it was finally possible to see how the random sketches I had been shown were actually going to work!
This weekend he has spent hours adding the details in with the cornicing and he’s just started to slot the shelves in.
And not only are there now lights running all across the top of each compartment but he’s also started to put up the towel hooks….he is Mr Detail after all!
