creating storage space on your sloping walls

happy friday and indeed it’s a good one. i’m typing this post from my fancy new wireless keyboard with eager anticipation for this guy to arrive next week. bneato nerve central is getting an upgrade and i promise to share pics once it’s all set up.

so, as i promised, here’s my favorite favorite favorite thing from the 2012 IKEA catalog… the ekby riset for sloping walls. it’s basically a bracket that allows you to hang shelving on a slope. genius. freaking genius. you can now convert that area underneath the stairs from wasted space into something useful. there are also a lot of los angeles closets that are begging to have their sloped walls made right by the ekby riset. i cannot wait to see this in action in a clients home and definitely send me a pic if you have taken advantage of this new invention. would love to see more examples!
