Hello, Today I thought I’d share a peek at one of our small and awkward spaces. When we first moved in this little nook was just this odd open space behind the chimney. We created simple shelves and held them up with some small trim pieces. I came up with the idea of adding shelves many years ago but not until yesterday did it occur to me to add a basket to each shelf! Why? I have no idea why that never came to me before. It was filled with CD cases and a bunch of stuff we didn’t really use and never looked particularly organized. I ran to Target to find some baskets and they were on sale, bonus! I just noticed the little bits that look like they were just painted, it’s the sunlight!). With a family of five we can always use practical storage and in a small space this was perfect!
It’s so much neater now and I like the texture the baskets add. My grandparents mirror got moved from near the front door to the left of the niche. I have more to share in the living room but that’s another day! Do you have a little space that you could make more functional? Shelves are a super way to make the most of an unused space, add more storage and make it a feature instead of a flop.
Don’t forget to stop by the link party so see who’s featured and link up! That’s tomorrow night at 8pm EST. See you there!
Linking to these parties!
