Yes…. this is a shower stand from IKEA. The place of actual dreams. I honestly should not gush about how much I fricking love IKEA. That would be a gazillion word post that nobody wants to read.
Anyway, I decided to buy one of these to plonk on my craft stall to help show off my products. See….I’m not just a hat-rack. This is the perfect thing for that job!
Then when I got it home, I remembered that we outgrew this tiny flat about 2 months after moving into it and I had nowhere to store the damn thing.
Then I had an actual brainwave….
Since we moved in, I have bedside table-less. We have pull out drawers under the bed, which means I have been living with my bedtime need-nears like this….
Sad isn’t it? Like a nightstand shanty town.
My skincare products were balanced on top of a small lamp along with my alarm clock and I typically knocked it all off twice a week….when of course trying to be super quiet and sneaky like. My books were stood on fortnightly and I had to revert to a bottle of water instead of a glass because I kept kicking it over. EPIC FAIL.
Insert genius idea!
Now I have a bedside table that I can easily lift one-handed when I have to get to this drawer and I have the perfect ‘in-plain sight’ storage site for this piece of kit that I will use on my craft stalls.
I didn’t want to put a shelf in our something more permanent as we aren’t planning on being living here this time next year, so in hindsight this little self-standing shower stand was a perfect purchase.
Do have any genius uses for storage things as other things? I would love to see them!
