Storage on the brain.

 I am sure that I am not the only parent that thinks about storage, in fact it drives me made trying to find homes for everything!! In the last eight weeks we have had three birthdays and Christmas, and our eldest will be in nine in two weeks time.  Even with a massive declutter, we have still got too much stuff.  So I am always on the look out for inventive ways to maximise the space that we have.

I spoke to a carpenter about making use of the space underneath our bath, it seemed silly to have so much wasted space when we needed more storage. Our bath panel was all broken, and pretty unsightly. This is what he came up with, a wooden frame that sheets of MDF fit onto. The end of panel is fixed, but the side is attached by clips. The whole thing was finished off with a few coats of heavy duty vanish, that is designed for outdoor jobs.  Now we have storage for bath toys, extra toiletries and toilet rolls.  I really could not be more pleased with the end result, and now I need a few more brain waves like this .
