When I moved into my room in halls at university back in September, one of my biggest problems was the minuscule amount of wardrobe space provided. This problem has only got worse as I have bought more clothes and gone home and come back with winter coats and jackets that I didn't need when I arrived in September.
The problem was solved when yesterday, when a hat stand arrived in the post. With the help of my friend Lydia, I put it up this afternoon, and got some storage space back.
Instead of gathering dust in a heap on the back of my door, or clogging up my tiny wardrobe, my coats, scarves, bags and hats are now stored and displayed, barely taking up any room.
The stand is made from wood painted white and adds a nice touch to my room (I think) - it doesn't look like anyone else's now.
