just some pics of the latest project Craig and I have been working on:
If you live in a Condo(or any house for that matter), you know just how valuable storage can be.
When we first bought our condo, one of the "features" was a sauna. Now, for most people, having a sauna is a pretty awesome feature to have in your house, and when we told people we were taking it out to make a linen closet, most people we talked to were very surprised that we would give up such a neat part of our house. But, like in many situations, you just have to listen to yourself, and not to be swayed by others opinions.
and, for the record, our sauna in like, 30 years old, it takes about 45 mins to heat up.. and we were using it for storage anyway... so every time we wanted a sauna, we would have to lug out like 40 boxes just for a 10min sauna. so not worth it.
so Linen Closet/ Storage it is!
Here are some before photos: there was a wood bench which has already been taken out
- We rubbed the wood walls with Linseed Oil to add some moisture, it made the wood look less dry and marked up. We then added in wire shelves, a hook for Craig's road bike, as well as other hooks in the cubby by the bike for other equipment like our helmets and ice skates.
How do you deal with your storage/lack of storage in your house? Any good techniques you use?
