Home improvement!

I’ve had my new flat for about three and a half months now and it’s almost done! As in 90% of the work is already completely but it’s likely to take another 6 months before that last 10% gets finished…

I’ve been working on lots of DIY/ home improvement/ decorating stuff which’ll probably end up on here at some point.

As a start here’s my fab copper hanging rail that my dad built for me!

This started life as as simple KALLAX unit from Ikea…

Before getting some fancy copper pipe work attached to it…

We used joints that would allow it to be dismantled easily in case I ever move again and want to take it with me. It ended up being about the same price as a cheap wardrobe of a similar and much prettier! (I’m loving this whole industrial/ exposed pipe work stuff right now!)

This piece will go in my new bedroom as an alternative for a traditional wardrobe. I’m hoping having all my clothes out on display will force me keep things tidy!
