Studio Renovating Update... and "Ikea Hack"
not ready yet, (haste makes waste!) .......
But here are some improvements we made:
My husband helped me with the Ikea Ivar cupboards -, (actually it was his idea to put them on wooden posts from wall to wall, clever! )
I cut the shelfs in half to get place for the tools on the doors.
I put some mosaic tiles on the sill
...and made a rack for all the ledges and bars ...
dowelled onto the wall, so the floor can be cleaned easily
What is left, (besides approx. 20 additional "To Do`s"), is to prime and paint the door after having removed the old coating!
have a wonderful weekend all!

So, here is the
