We had originally planned on putting custom built-in cabinets in the boys' new room. But then daddy had the wonderful idea to take the bookcase from the dining room and repurpose it. We were already planning on moving the bookcase out of that room to make space for the piano we will be getting shortly. Daddy turned the bookcase on its side and added horizontal shelves and legs. After painting it, he added bungee cords to two sections for stuffed animal "zoo" storage.
It turned out so great and is the perfect storage solution for this room! The boys (and mama & daddy) are truly thrilled with this new room. We have one more piece of furniture that we'll be painting and adding in a couple of weeks and then our current list of projects for this room will be finished.
