Although I came up with the idea of using old doll parts as a jewelry holder, my wife is the one who figured out how to display it.
Similar to the loft, I built a closet organizer thing.
This closet consists of about $95 in parts and lumber at Home Depot. Like the loft, this was built from scratch and 100% of the cutting was done in the store. They do a good job there.
I built a loft bed from scratch. Thanks, Home Depot.
It had to hold a queen size mattress, and not fall apart. From that criteria, I was able to piece something together in my head that actually went together in real life. I had no way to cut the materials effectively at home, so I had to get it all done by the friendly staff at Home Depot.
I only made one mistake, which was corrected by cutting notches out of the beams on the ends of the bed so that they would fit properly into the metal hangers. I was amazed at how it came out, but I think the secret was not allowing myself to do any of the cutting.
I officially bought my new house today.
