I try to be zen. Decluttered. Minimal. And then, I have dirty little secrets, that I’m ashamed of. And that’s my storage niche.
First, I don’t like any of this being ‘out in the open’ – ie visible from other parts of my bedroom. I did buy some shutters (from the op shop, so second hand) to refashion to hide this area. They are living with a friend, who may never get around to cutting them to size. Which really should encourage me to keep this area tidy and minimal! Here’s what’s in there:
From what’s in here, this is my ‘plan’
use carpet off-cuts to re-carpet the niche (it’s the old beige carpet, and the rest of the upstairs is grey)
- use or lose the blow heater (deadly things that they are)
- consider storing mozzie net and throw in linen closet (or install shelves in niche…)
do I need an empty box for my Le Creuset? No! Let’s get that reccyled/repurposednow the box for all gluten free flours!
Well since I’ve drafted this, I got a bee in my bonnet, and got that carpet changed! Here’s the afters!
Wow there was something seriously up with my camera there! Sorry for blurry/blotchy!
Now for it filled up again:
Sigh. My dirty little secret. Once it’s hidden, bare bones minimal and proper organised, I’ll be content.
For now, you’ll know, not every where is show room ready… Any wizz-bang tidy up ideas? Ways to store what I more nicely?
