- you can't poke holes into the wall or ceiling
- you're not allowed to paint
- you're told to not rearrange the furniture
- the space is super teeny-tiny
You can find the BEFORE photos HERE
However....through the use card stock, fabric panels, wall stickers and overall clever ideas - I think the space looks much better than if I hadn't done anything at all. Take a gander:
|Added card stock panels to the wall and I found a think cotton chair |
cushion on my France trip (blogging on a vinyl chair in warm weather blows)
|Flower box for my window. The pink hydrangeas are now blooming|
|The only nightstand in the room. |
Jewelry in the pink boxes.
|Added sheer panels (shipped from home) using a spring tension curtain rod. I wanted to hang them from the ceiling like the French Boutique, but I can't put a hook in the ceiling. I'm contemplating another option. Card stock added for wall interest.|
|This is my entire closet. That's it - that's all I have. |
Notice 1/2 of it is uniforms?
|I needed something by the door to keep my keys and pocket |
contents in. I had to get creative with this one.
|Tall suitcase rack with Flat Rate mailing boxes added to flatten|
the surface. Covered with a new terry towel.
|Photo/postcard door collage (when you send me your postcard - |
it goes here!). Ironing board has been converted
to robe/scarf hanger. The iron cord holds my sunnies.
|I found this great organizer for my makeup in Saarbrucken Germany. 12e. The black toothbrush holder hold my makeup brushes and hair clips. Geez, time to wash my brushes.|
|Hey, what are you doing here?|
|Hair dryer converts to a towel holder. Ice cube tray from the thrift store on base ($.50) holds my hair products and pink Clairasonic face brush. French overly scented soap on the soap dish.|
|A poster I have hanging up. Poster? I know. It's like HIGH SCHOOL.|
|Close-up of the ice cube holder re-purposed. This is a great holder since I can easily find anything I'm looking for. Very important with a 0430 WAKE-UP|
|Fabric panels soften the space, adds color and slightly disguises the closet. Isn't this wall sticker great? Found it at the French stationary store for 8 euros. (so....... like $500 US dollars. Just kidding, it would be $12)|
