We did run into a few issues, the biggest was the cubbie. The room is exactly 36" wide a the baseboard, and 37" wide at the walls. The cubbie is 36.5" wide, which I didn't think to measure from the baseboards of course, so it wouldn't fit on the floor. We also assembled it then realized there was no way to get it way back into the closet and turn it into position. It was impossible. So we had to disassemble and reassemble it with a little elbow grease and sweat so that it would in fact face the correct direction, then once pushed into place, we cut some spare wood from the garage into legs which held i just above the baseboards so that it would in fact fit. WHEW.
Here are the before and after photos. What do you think?
Why it the wall patched? I cut it open to see if I could remove it to add height. NOPE. Thats the landing support. OOPS.
Twinkle lights make it nice and bright in here. There is no power source in here, so we ran an extension cord around the corner behind my desk in the livingroom. I had some hooks and a spice rack laying around from ikea (which I painted blue) and used for dress up supplies.
The bulk of the closet is n the back under a low ceiling (just a few feet tall), the perfect spot for a secret cozy book nook.
