Setting up again for life in the city…

New partition coming up!

Well… who would have known… that it takes time to switch from cruising life into city life… from boat projects to house projects.. and we are still doing reno.

IKEA GEOM shelves

At least I have made my 1st IKEA trip! 🙂 And have this to show for! Stacked GEOM shelves bolted together with metal plates and bolted to the wall. Its almost 16ft tall… 🙂 Fits right into the stairwell…

At the top of the shelves…

At 16ft tall, the shelving unit is great for storing big lightweight stuff. We bolt it to the wall so that wiill not tumble onto kids who try to climb… its kinda tempting …

Looking down from the top…

This is looking down from the top… What say ya about this practical use of cheap IKEA products? Think I should send in this idea to IKEA and get some vouchers for sharing?

More IKEA. IVAR shelving with LEDs gummed on and wired.

Shelves and lighting for my project cum storage room is done. 15W LEDs for room light and separate switch for 8W LEDs spot desk lighting. I think the overall effect is pretty good.

My project room… projects in progress.

Can you find the dangling LED light switches? The upper one for the room light and lower one for the spot lighting. .. See them?

And more LEDs fixtures coming up… using the sail magazines to hold down freshly gummed down LEDs and wiring… 🙂
