We all want a nice tidy house with no clutter. In reality we all have maintenance issues around the house that need sorting, household chores that don’t disappear, things stuffed in different places to try and hide the fact we are a little untidy and short on storage space. It gets to this time of year and we start wishing for household perfection by browsing through DIY and furniture catalogues. Undoubtedly this end up in a trip round a well known Swedish outlet. We find the perfect cheerful storage solution that will fit in with the general design of our house. After locating it on the top shelf of the warehouse, we get it back home, only to find after opening the box there are nearly 1,000 different shaped parts (or so it seems!)….. Well if you’re like me and this is your idea of hell, there is a simple solution. I am sharing the secret of DIY and flat pack furniture here.
