Make Your Own…Shelves

I never have enough space for books and magazines. Although having a Kindle has helped a little, I prefer to read some magazines and books the old-fashioned way.

Adding storage to a room that is already “done” is never easy. Sometimes it’s easier to start over than find pieces to go with what you already have. Very few people can make a wall of mix-matched book shelves look good.

I decided that something unique would give me the space I need without making my office look like a jumbled mess.

I purchased unfinished children’s chairs from IKEA. They were $9.99 each. I sanded them a little, then spray painted them white and hung them on the wall.

Here’s how they look:
