I have FINALLY cleaned our spare room and prepared it for guests… after 7 months at post! To be fair, we didn’t get our HHE for 2 1/2 months. To be honest, we probably won’t get any guests – so I wasn’t in a hurry. Still, I’m pretty proud of my simple and easy solution for the Drexel “Queen Anne” bookshelves: banished to the guest room, while still storing consumables.
Here’s how they looked for the past 4 months:
After my #drexelhack using a few tension rods (I got these for less than $7 on Amazon) and a couple of yards of fabric:
Yes, this room looks like it belongs in a hotel now, and stands in marked contrast to the rest of the apartment style. But it’s clean, useable, and won’t make my guests (should we get any… are you reading this, friends and family?! Come to Baku!!) feel like they’re sleeping in a pantry. Win.
I had planned on doing something cool like one of these ombre fabric painting or writing techniques, but for now at least they are up! If I do make more of an art piece out of them, I’ll be sure to update the post.
Have you done something creative with your Drexel bookshelves? I’d love to feature it here on Adaptation House!
