Ah the fabulousness that is Christmas vacation! It’s one of the few perks of teaching. Usually I just lounge around the house doing nothing, but not this week! I’ve been “remodeling” to make room for the baby!
So I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but hubby and I live in a tiny 1 bedroom apartment. We downsized a few years ago to save some money and give us a reason to eliminate a bunch of the crap we’d accumulated over the course of our lives. Living in a small space poses lots of challenges (obviously) but I’ve come to enjoy it. It’s less to clean and forces me to be creative with furniture and decorating. It’s taken a while, but we’ve made it work for us. We’re comfortable here and gonna stay for a bit longer. But what about the baby?
I did some Ikea hacking this week to create a “room” for the baby. Basically, I used some old Aneboda wardrobes we had hanging around and build a “wall” that split our bedroom in two.
The other side of the “wall” is for the baby. I couldn’t very well leave it nasty old press-board, could I? Wallpaper time!
Okay…it’s not perfect. Even though I put up wall liner on the crappy cardboard back of the wardrobes, the paper didn’t want to stick to the edges. I used some corner molding on the edge that’ll be bumped up against most. I haven’t decided if I” edge the rest of it.
So there you have it… this week’s project. I bought the wallpaper online. I fell in love with the pretty flowers!
