Mira has created a clothes rail-come-room divider using strings of wooden beads hanging from the ceiling and hooked plain coat hangers through the ends. I don’t know whether she upcycled one of those 1970s wooden bead curtains or started from scratch with new strings of beads, but either would work as long as the hole in the middle of the beads was large enough to put the wire of the coat hanger through.

I’m a sucker for simple but stylish storage solutions so you’ll find lots more storage and organising ideas on this Pinterest board.
