Space saver – combine a wardrobe and a staircase leading up to a ceiling hammock
Today I want to show you the makeover we did when we turned our office into Viola´s room. The room has a high ceiling with visable beams. In other words perfect for a hammock-like nest. Or as Isabelle would say: “It would be a crime NOT putting a net up there”
The room is very small and the only place we could fit a wardrobe was on this very wall, so I decided to combine a staircase with the wardrobe, built from left-over kitchen cabinets, ikea dressers and MDF boards.
This is the before picture: Our office. (such a mess)
We emptied the room and gathered all the furniture from the basement that we could use. (The 3 white cabinets used to be a part of our old kitchen in our old apartment, and the 2 small dressers are ikea Malm bedside-tables)
Then we built the wardrobe/staircase around them. We bought 3 cabinet doors from Ikea (it was cheaper than MDF board) for 3 units. At the end we made a small stepping stool also out of MDF. Lastly we added steps on top.
Viola and I decorated the inside of the wardrobe with a cute role of wallpaper that we found at a fleamarket.
My dad, the car-painter painted all the fronts for us in the color Lindblomma from Beckers. And we painted the steps with Körsbärsblom from Beckers. (they work so well together)
The wallpaper did not last all the way so one cabinet got a splash of watermelon pink inside. Color Vattenmelon from Beckers.
