Stylish Storage Solution

I love pretty furniture.  I also love practical furniture.  That’s why I’m obsessed with the affordable, chic and versatile IKEA Kallax bookcase with 8 cubbies.  It’s only $64.99, and can work perfectly in an office, in a playroom (with baskets to corral toys), and as an entry table (which is how I’m currently using it).


We are in a pretty small apartment right now, which means that storage space is extremely important. This bookcase serves as a place to store some vintage china, books, craft supplies, paperwork, and random knickknacks.  I’ve seen may people use storage boxes or baskets in every cubby hole, but I’ve opted to only use two baskets and attempt to organize the rest. 


The top of it is also nice and sleek, so it’s the perfect spot to showcase some pretty lamps, faux topiary plants, an orchid…pretty much anything!



This piece has recently had a Christmasy makeover, so stay tuned next week to see how it looks now!

NOTE:  The holiday event at Sherman Pickey that I announced last week has been cancelled for the time being.  I apologize for any inconvenience, and thanks to those of you who expressed interest in attending!

    I have the larger version of these cubbies and I love styling them with each and every season!

    I want a larger version so badly, but sadly have no more room. Maybe one day if I get my own office or something ūüôā
