We try to use every tiny nook for storage in our treehouse. It’s a rather small house (at least for Austrian standards) and although we want try need to downsize and get rid of S T U F F we do need proper and smart storage solutions for the stuff we cant get rid off.
footnote: I really looking forward to life with less things… I apprecheate the movement of downsizing and living simple life. Where you are surounded with quality stuff or things you really love. Reward yourself with quality items rather than quantity… Do you know Melanie of a small life. she’s my downsizing hero… and I really love her shiny airstream.
Anyway we decided to use the space within the attic by building a cupboard on one side. We used the same system like we did in Lindas nursery. With sliding doors. As doors we reused old wooden window shutters from my parents house which where used 80 to 100 years ago within the old windows.

Schorsch and Martin renovated and adapted them. As they have been folding shutters they braced them with wooden strips and sanded them while my mum painted them with a matte finish from farrow and ball (wevet in estate eggshell).

  1. Such a beautiful glimpse of your home. The wall paper is so interesting, as is your shingled wall. I look forward to seeing the shutters up. Not your average cupboard!
