Getting better

While the apartment is not ready for Better Netherlands Homes and Gardens quite yet, it is not as plain as it used to be. Turning the awful, awkward IKEA bookcase on its side and using it as a table behind the couch served several purposes: 1: hid the awful bookcase 2: didn’t violate ‘fire regulations’, which apparently specify no new furniture, no removal of existing furniture, and no transfer of existing furniture into another room (!) 3: provided a place to put a picture without putting a nail in the wall 4: kind of turned the hidden behind-the-couch area into something the apartment totally lacks: a closet. GREAT SUCCESS. The Da Vinci quote offers congratulations on the triumph.
