Okay so here’s the thing…..the bathroom in our apartment is about the size of a slice of pepper jack cheese. You don’t actually have to reach for anything you just have to look at it intensely and it’s in your hand. I don’t think there’s any real square footage and I’m about 94% sure it used to be a closet. Oh and I forgot to mention, worse of all…it doesn’t have windows so there’s no natural light coming in…. (it’s still hard for me to talk about that…..).

I was constantly cutting, gluing, painting, re-gluing, sewing, drilling and re-re-gluing. Spaces for little humans takes a lot out of you!

Okay can I just say this was SO MUCH FUN! I knew exactly what I wanted it to look like and actually enjoyed making it (not that I ever don’t enjoy it, but this was a lot less trial and error than most of my DIYs). To be honest the toughest part was trying to hang it so it wouldn’t touch the wall. No seriously guys..it took me about 20 minutes of failed attempts. The end result was to simply screw a nail to the front of one of my wood shelves…………..
