After I’m done showing you the clothing rack up-cycle we will take a look at the finished bedroom. It has many of my favorite pieces and yours as well, since they were in my top ten for 2017.
We had purchased this aluminum rack from a store in the area that had gone out of business. It was super functional but let’s be honest…not very pretty. No one wants to air their dirty laundry! I needed to come up with a solution to hiding all the clothes because we did not have a built in closet – but something a little nicer than just throwing a sheet over the whole thing.
What I Used:
- I had purchased the aluminum rack at a store.
- 6 pairs of Ikea EKBY brackets
- 3 flat sheets in white
- left over cardboard boxes in this case from Ikea.
- contact paper in walnut and white
The How To:
By re-purposing a few sheets I would have my cover. I stapled them onto the edges of the shelf/frame.
And here is the result. It looks like a massive box, but underneath hides the clothing rack. Of course it would have helped if I had ironed the sheets first before stapling them on there, but…the plane was waiting!
The Finished Bedroom
And now for a tour of the room. Shall we begin? This is my office with the laminate table I had shared with you a few months ago. It has the computer and all the bare necessities.
And finally we have closure with the bedroom reveal. Now we can finally move on to all the projects the projects that I have here in New York!
