The first thing that happened was that Jitske pulled out the rod and its accoutrements. Then I filled up the holed with polyfilla, and painted it. Then it was time for structural work.
I popped to the DIY shop and bought wood. Small rods for screwing into the wall, and planks for laying on top of these. And then it was a case of cutting everything to size and fix it in position. The rods were quite easy. The planks a bit less so. I have no right angle in my house so the planks in the back needed to be a bit longer than the ones at the front. And they seem to always have to be a bit differently sized than I thought after measuring. And they were big buggers! I brought in the workmate and the bow saw and set to work. And on New Year's Day I managed to get to sorted! I have a cupboard. I do want to oil the wood like I've oiled pretty much all the other wood, but that can be done in between things. The hard, noisy, messy work that needs a lot of space is now done!
Oh and I need to paint the door frame... oh well. I might go for green! But not mint green.
In a way good that the bedroom isn't a bedroom yet
