This is it. I like the way it fits on that wall, and it is next to the laundry room so washing blankets is easy.
I used to have this ugly bookcase in my den (go here, the pics are a little dark sorry). I actually have two and the second one will be re-done too.
Yikes -- What a mess. I was trying it out before I painted it.
I took each piece outside and painted it a Colonial Red.
The top part of the bookcase I attached a coat rack and now I am hanging coats, bags and even my little Moo Moo's leash. My two school kids put their backpacks here and books to return to the library.
The Middle shelves hold misc. stuff. I love my boxes, they were only a dollar at my favorite, Dollar Store.
I used baggage tags that I got at Wal Mart and I love the tags from the Martha Stewart Line at Staples. They hold my wipes/A&D ointment, lost and found, and bibs.
I love my hardware holding my labels (I got them at Hobby Lobby). The plastic in-box is used for my kids papers to be signed and returned.
The black and white box is used for the daycare kids work.
I covered the box with some black and white shelf paper -- I think it is cute and my favorite cheap. The paper was from the Dollar Store.
The bottom, I put shoes and all the blankets for nap time.
The section to the left of the bookcase, holds all the kids boxes and personal belongings.
I used the same clear baggage tags and attached them with those zip cord thingies. I know that is the technical name right?
On the opposite side is my little shelf unit that I turned upside down to hold my nap mats. I also have a couple of part-time kids and that is where I keep their box.
This little antique telephone bench sits on the opposite side of my laundry door. I am trying to convince my husband to let me paint it red to match.
My kids put a
little big dink it -- made me so sad : (
Does anyone know how to repair it?????? I would appreciate your help.
I also found a cool thing to hang above the bench after it is painted to change the whole look.
Well, that is my little transformation, thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look.
