Bookcase Crates

Pokemon cards, LEGO pieces, Star Wars characters, Beanie Boos, games, mini cars….the list goes on and on!!! These were the toys that my son would leave littered all over the floor every single day.

I liked the look of crates and found a few options in local stores, but I could build the same thing for a fraction of the cost, so I did!

My son’s bookcase was a disaster… all the time!  I would regularly stack and neatly arrange his books only to find them thrown back onto the shelves in a crazy manner, basically every day. I could have tried to talk myself into “letting go” of the appearance of the shelves, but instead I decided to do something to help him keep his books organized.

I was looking for something to fill a space above my daughter’s dresser and when my elderly neighbour was cleaning out her house, I quickly snapped this up (much to her shock….’why would you want such an ugly thing?’)

It all started with an old mirror that had been hanging around in my basement patiently awaiting my inspiration to arise. And it eventually did. I was getting tired of the loose pens, coupons and overflowing pinboard in my kitchen and the frame of this mirror was the perfect size to create something new.
