Scary, right?


But I did it. I assembled my IKEA BEDDINGE sofa-bed all on my own, this morning. And I'm feeling rather proud right now. Ridiculous, I know, since IKEA stuff is meant to be assembled easily even by the slowest of people, but still... Colourwise, I wanted the purple cover I had been lusting over in the catalogue, but they bluntly told me it has been discontinued, so I got a brownish green instead. Now that I have put the rest of the sofa together, I'm thinking of returning it and making my own cover instead. After all, the cover was actually the most expensive of the three sofa parts you have to get (140 euros for the cover, 125 for the frame and 110 for the matress). I don't know if I am getting overly optimistic about my sewing skills, but how hard can it be to sew together two INDIRA bedspreads, 10 euros each? Piece of cake, I tell you. And that way, I can put the 140 euros towards this amazing TIRUP swivel chair. That thing totally swallows you whole! In a good way, of course.
And hey, I know this blog is in the verge of loosing its fashion interest, but unfortunately there are no pictures of my walk-in closet yet. I am working on it and I believe it will be ready for its first photo shoot in a day or two. But, I'm afraid that even then, it won't be in its final state. Smells like those eternally "work in progress" projects. What I do know is that I have to get it in a functional state sooner or later so I will be able to get dressed in the mornings in something else other than sweatpants, so expect visual input soon!

My home in Greece and specifically my bedroom has a walk-in closet, it is like a very small room BUT I never had the pleasure to use it as I would have dreamed of mainly because it is the largest closet in the house so my mother stores there everything that doesn't fit elsewhere. So I only use the space in proportion and try to make room for the other members too. If it was only for one person, it would have been huge, I can even imagine having a chair to sit and daydream with the clothes in view...

So you lucky girl enjoy your totally own walk-in closet!
