We have recently finished two projects. One of them occurred to me about 12 months ago, the other was inspired by Pinterest just recently.
We have a problem with where to store our suitcases. For years they lived under the bed; however, the cat - realising that they caused us to leave her by herself or with strangers - took a dislike to them. Her logic was if she scented them (pweh) they were hers and would have to stay home. They actually went in the bin!
Our hallway, from the living area to the bedrooms has two alcoves at the end. For a year or so the suitcases lived in a untidy pile in the corner of one alcove.

Enter inspiration - why not put a fake ceiling into the two alcoves? Using the door frames on one side, a length of 1 inch square dowel on the two other sides, some boards cut to size, we did just that.
The second project was even simpler. My inspiration - an 'aha' moment if ever there was one - came from this photo. I mentioned it to hubby on Sunday and today (Friday) it's done. That in itself is a minor miracle!
