Lady arranges her 1 room well
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young lady, @sebeti, who rented a one-room apartment has made a video to show people how she portioned the space into different sections.
At the entrance of the apartment is her gas cylinder. Beside it was her cooker, kitchen cabinet and fridge. The kitchen part of the house was well arranged.
The lady placed her bed in the rear section of the room and complemented the space with a beautifully made wardrobe.
