KRin has a head cold

Most people when they are sick would takeit easy. Not me. I have the Melbourne head cold - have lost my voice and have the most annoying cough. Also have the runs today just for variety. I'm not sleeping well. So, what did I decide to do? Resdesign my main bedroom wardrobe. There has been a shelf sitting at eye level since we moved in 1989, just in the right place to smack you head when you lean in to get clothes out. On Monday night after all these years, I took a hammer and dismantled the damn thing.

Points to note: 1. The only thing holding the shelf up was an upright of wood about 3/4 of the way along the shelf. 2. The shelf was built out of the nastiest wood I have ever seen. 3. I've never seen nails like the ones the builder used. 4. The last bit of nasty beige carpet has gone.

I was going to reuse the wood to redesign the storage unit but it was so awful I elected instead to get some half price stick down tiles for the floor and found a hald price metal unit to put in instead. For something that feels quite flimsy it is working quite well (I'm about half done). I have also discovered that the wardrobe is narrower than it should be for a wardrobe.
