This all began with me needing to create a way to could store my crafts and still More have room to move around and keep the organization in my home consistent. Finding quality discount furniture wasn’t hard to do. It was making sure I got something that would help alleviative the current problem.
So I actually decided on some bookcases from an IKEA near me; I’m glad it was right down the block from me.
I had a couple of ideas in mind. They were finally delivered and it was time to put my home idea to work and maximize the space that I had available.
I turned the bookcases on their side because it actually was more spacious for me than if I had used them upright. In addition, they were the perfect height for me to slide storage bins in and out of the spaces. I secured them together using some screws because I didn’t want them shifting around at all. Next, I bought a door that was void of handles and hinges and it worked perfectly as a countertop.
I brought out the power drill and secured the door to the bookcases with more screws and put a light stain on the surface of the door. The reason I had to use the screws was that the bookcases had a laminate on it and glue just wouldn’t cut it! After everything was where it needed to be, I still felt it looked bland, all that white you know?
Well, some purple colored duct tape fixed that! It was used it as a piping around the table top (former door) and it completed the look. All the work that was done was worth it, I accomplished my goal and the room looks clean and organized now. It’s a great space saver and it’s also multi-use. I have definitely outdone myself with this one!
