in small rooms utilizing every inch of space to its full potential is key. boy, do we know this :)
the little guy's room is one of the smallest spaces in our house. we even put a loft bed in his room to allow a little more "play" space.
he's getting older, getting more toys, and in need of organized places to put them. of course, he'd rather just dump everything in a pile. we call him our "nester".
there is this space between his bed and the entry to his room where a bookshelf would fit perfectly as a nightstand/storage combo. regular bookshelf's are boring :) and sometimes pricey. finding one the right hight, but to wide was difficult, too. so let's make one :)
Michael's has these bare wood crates for about $13 each. after a few weeks using those 40% off coupons, i had enough to turn into a bookshelf.
before painting them the same color as this, the hubs screwed them together for me. (i'm not a power tools kinda gal. wish i was...someday, right?)
i'm kind of obsessed with crates, just check my crate board on Pinterest
♥ i just might start hoarding them ♥
