Book Storage Upstairs

The post from yesterday continues....

As you know, the space upstairs in this little corner has been lacking in design and for a while I didn't know what to do with the area.
Recently, I purchased some boxes at Office Depot and recovered them in paper, fabric, and twine.

Now the little space looks like this!


The green lamp is from Target.
I love it's pop of color!


All of these boxes hold books from my teaching days.
They will make great reads for our girls when they get older too! :)


And the picture frame of our sweeties was a purchase from Home Goods.



Other sources include the white painted bookshelf we bought at Target a few years ago and I covered a wine bottle in twine (you can see it in the pictures above on top of the bookshelf).


Thanks for stopping by!

    1. The twine keeps it from being too plain I think. It adds some character. :)
