New linen cupboard
I'm still sorting the spare room out. What a lot of stuff we have accumulated over the years. You may have noticed from the previous pictures of the wardrobe that the linen was over flowing in the top section. This was only meant to be a stop gap several years ago when we had to have new tank fitted in the old airing cupboard.
Unfortunately as I am vertically challenged I have never really been able to reach the top part of the cupboard properly to keep it tidy on regular basis, as it always necessitates getting a stool or step ladder. I have to say taking the photo made me feel ashamed and realise how hideous the mess was and that got me thinking.
What I really wanted was an armoire for the linen. However the price was going to be a tad expensive, also we needed something not too big and preferably shelved. So yesterday on my travels I spotted the perfect solution- a lovely (thirties I think) walnut veneered cupboard which met all my requirements. Perfect.
Linen is now put away neatly and I am able to reach it and keep it tidy! I'm not sure my other half is quite so enamoured as he prefers all things modern but I like it . I could however be persuaded in the future to use it for my sewing goodies should the need for something more modern become more pressing -there is method in my madness!
