New to my Apartment | Customised Cupboard

I was waiting all of 2011 to get this cupboard installed, and finally by November I saved all I needed for it and had it installed in December – a very nice Christmas pressie to myself. A carpenter came to measure up everything. I discussed with him what I wanted and he threw in some ideas too.

George’s sister suggested I put a cupboard where this nook in the wall is. Such a perfect idea, which grew into the perfect storage space!

Sliding Pantry | Drawers | Sliding Shoe Rack


The top of the cupboard is for general storage space, the left a shoe and clothes rack, and in the middle, draws for linen. The right side is a pantry as there’s not enough space in my kitchen for everything.

I do have a walk in wardrobe in my bedroom, however, as a girl who loves clothes and shoes, I needed more space!

Once my cupboard is all organised, I’ll take some more pictures to share with you.
