DIY: Building a walk in wardrobe

March 23, 2018

I’ve been on a little blogging hiatus due to keeping up with all the great and not so great things life can throw at you… and I can’t believe we’re nearly in April already!

So I’ve managed to start working on at least 1 of my 5 new year resolutions. One of which is to be more creative, hence the reason for this post. If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen that I recently moved house. Therefore lots of upcoming DIY projects to fill my time with (oh so exciting!) One of which is my new walk in wardrobe which I have just completed…

Jack and I actually found our new house through a slightly unfortunate circumstance but my gosh. A blessing in disguise couldn’t have described it better.

The previous tenant used my now ‘walk in wardrobe’, as an office/child’s playroom, hence the big ass rainbow that was on the wall. Jack works from home a lot so made one of our 3 bedrooms into his home office, therefore asked if I wanted this room as my wardrobe. You can probably imagine the look on my face when he said that to me. What girl doesn’t want their own walk in wardrobe?! I seriously thought we were going to use this room as storage space so that came as an wonderful surprise.

So first of all I got rid of that huge bookcase by flogging it on Facebook. If you haven’t tried doing this I totally recommend it – people on Facebook LOVE buying your old tat. Then I painted over that hideous rainbow. Not gonna lie I did feel a bit guilty covering the positive ray of colours in thick white gloop. But lets be honest, it had to go.

Once the paint was dry I measured the wall and ordered a bespoke rail from E-bay. With some help from Jack the rail was up in no time and ready to be filled with my beloved clothes. Please excuse the horrific looking pipes. Our bathroom is on the other side of the wall and the plumbing work is just lol.

“The clothes came in two by two, hurrah, hurrah!”. I wish this experience was all singing and dancing but I forgot how stressful moving can be. Mind you moving from one house to another in the same Bristol postcode was a piece of cake compared to upheaving my whole life from Oxford to Bristol last year.

Sorting and tidying this mess was probably the longest part of this whole process, but boy was it worth it.

Mission accomplished… If you’ve got any ideas for a new DIY project to fill my time then please send ’em my way!
