My Guest room dressing area

A couple of weeks back I showed you my designs for our guest room

"Due to the shape of the room I decided that a wardrobe would be too imposing but I still wanted to provide my guests with some hanging space."Why don't I make the little foyer at the top of the stairs a little dressing area!" I found the perfect answer in a white finished solid pine storage unit with four coat hooks and three baskets with cut out handles for easy access to contents. I could hang it from the wall placing a monks bench style laundry bin below, that also conveniently doubles up as a seat. To add colour, comfort and interest I'm going to make a comfy patterned cover cushion for the top of the bench."

The Solid Pine and Wood 3 Basket Storage Unit with 4 Coat Hooks from Argos came pre assembled and was super easy to hang on the wall using the fixings at the back. I love how it provides a little storage space and doubles up a shelf to display my printed tins and boxes on.

The monks bench style laundry bin came flat packed but I found it quick and easy to assemble. I then measured up the top and had foam cut to size. I made a slip cover using one of the same tea towels I used for my Pom pom trim boudoir cushions and some scrap fabric for the underside.

Have a sweet day!
