Since we moved into the new flat, our clothes have been living in bin bags on the floor. Such glamour! As well as building most of the furniture for our home, John has also built us a beautiful clothing rail made entirely from found materials. I’ve been daydreaming for months about clothing rails on Pinterest.  I’ve never been a fan of the wardrobe. They’re so overbearing and take up most of the space in a bedroom. Unless you live in a palace of course. I don’t. I live in a 1 bedroom flat in London, so screw you palace dwellers!

The rail is made from found materials. The wood is solid oak, which John found in an alley behind his work. The metal pole is also a find, the result of a rummage in an old cupboard.

The bedroom makeover is far from finished. We’ve got plans for storage shelving above the rail and lots of other things to make best use of the small space. Excuse the poor light in these photos, a home tour with proper photographs will be coming soon!
