When I made a cupboard it looked fine. But cupboards are for putting things in! And this one is quite deep. This invites the storage of big, unsightly things. So I figured maybe I should hide the contents. And the easiest way to do that is hanging a curtain. The shelves don't come all the way to the front so there is space for it! And I even had the rail lying around I had pulled out of the wardrobe I had bought in spring. So I mounted that at the top. When I went to the soft furnishings store I found a curtain in the right colour and size; it even was heavily discounted. Even better! So now you see cloth. And not whatever's behind that!
