Creating storage


Now that the basement is no longer the dungeon, we have less space for our storage. (We do have a furnace room + storage room but every space counts). We created this little nook under the stairs that is housing all of Aubrey’s books that are stored in clear boxes. The other 1/2 of the books are upstairs waiting for a bookshelf(s) in the living room. Tip – when planning a space, utilize every space that you can…this little area is an amazing space for us to tuck away boxes & I’m so glad we took the time to create a little door. 🙂

    That's such a cute little storage space 🙂

    Thanks for your comment about my brick fireplace wall. I think I'm going to take the plunge when the weather warms up. We're going with BM's "White Dove" in that room. I'm still not sure, though, what finish to use on the bricks. Would you mind sharing what you used on yours?

    I like flat on the upper part of the walls, and I was planning on going with semi-gloss for the paneling and trim, if that helps out.
