Now that Christmas decorations have been put away, I'm on a mission to style the built in bookcase in our family room. I've never really liked built-ins, but this one really needs some personality. My goal is to style it without buying anything new. I'll post after pictures when I'm done. Wish me luck!
The boys' hallway is always a heap of sweaty hoodies and smelly sneakers. I'm determined to organize (and decorate) it, so it's no longer an eyesore. I pinned a cute DIY entryway bench and shelf on Pinterest. Shortly afterwards I found this Pottery Barn bench at my favorite local consignment shop.
Since they still needed a place for jackets, backpacks and winter accessories AND I couldn't find a shelf that I liked, we headed to Lowe's to get supplies for building. Armed with a cut list and plans from ana-white.com, we spent about $40. An hour later my hubby was done. We are NOT the handy, do-it-yourselfer types and he assured me this was very easy. This weekend I'll paint it, attach a few hooks and hang it up. Just in time for school on Monday
