Living in an 180yr old cottage there is very little storage room, (well people didn't own much all those years ago) you have to create your own, build cupboards under stairs, add cupboards etc. etc. Bearing this in mind my lounge which was once two rooms and is now one, measures 13ft wide (at its widest) and 22ft 6inches long. Has a large fireplace in it, a large sofa and two chairs, a old fashioned pine computer desk a filing cabinet and these.....
a large cupboard under the stairs, full to the brim of 'stuff' I made the cupboard doors with assistance from K, you can tell can't you!
this holds all our games and puzzles and was picked up for a bargain at a barn sale!
My mum let me have this, it is mine and my sisters old toy cupboard and now holds all the computer stuff, family bibles, paper etc etc.and a teeny weeny bit of craft stuff!
Then there is this...
from good old IKEA, you get an idea whats in it by the stuff on top! Then you open the already bulging doors to this
the red box at the bottom is full of toys for when my friend pops round with her daughter, the exercising thingy is just there! The boxes are full of magazines and things then when you pull out the bags you get lots and lots of this
now what do you do with all the left over bits of wool? Shall I tell you? You visit this blog and make a scrap scarf!
