I think every girl dreams of having her own dressing room. And when I say ‘dressing room’ I don’t necessarily mean a perfectly-designed space filled with designer shoes and expensive candles – I mean an extra area to store all those pairs of heels you never wear, coats that are too bulky for your wardrobe and all that other useless faff that comes with being female (like 50 pairs of black tights or the platform trainers you’ve had since the Spice Girls days but can’t bear to throw away).
Since we moved into our house two years ago, the small box room off our bedroom has served as Rob’s office. But because he’s such an awesome person, it’s recently changed ownership and now has the exciting title of ‘Jen’s Dressing Room’.
So as Rob moved his desk and various items of Apple tech downstairs to the spare room, I moved in rails, drawers and Betsy, my new dressmakers’ dummy. Isn’t she beautiful?
It’s not quite finished yet – after a lot of two-ing and frow-ing back and forth to Ikea, we finally have the right size bookcase (note to self – measure space BEFORE lugging two huge, heavy boxes home and up a spiral staircase) so that’s got to go in, and I need to pack up my many, many pairs of shoes…
I’ll be back with another post when everything’s in place and all my storage solutions are working their magic, so enjoy these snippets for now.
Do you have a space for all your stuff?
