Living in small houses, one must create storage opportunities to make things work in small spaces. Recently our grandaughter moved in with us and I had to make room in my sewing room for a five year olds abundance of stuff.
I decided to used the Ikea Expedit Bookshelf for this reason. It gave her five storage bins across the bottom of the unit.... and of course she has taken up about 7-8 bins.
Some of the boxes to the shelving unit. These boxes are so neatly packaged and the intrusions are fairly easy to understand from IKEA, anyone could put this together if they were so inclined to do so.... we did!
Gracie helping and instructing Nana on how the shelf unit should be put together. I'm not sure, but I think.... I might not have been listening to what she was telling me, here in this picture above.
She loves to help and learn new things. She truly loves to be right in the middle of the craft room and it's activities, learning new things, such as quilting and such.
The two of us did this all by ourselves. We did however need help putting it up against the wall.
This bookshelf unit also has a table/desk that attaches and come out into the room. I will add a finished picture later of it finished and up againist the wall with the cubbies in the unit. If I forget let me apologize now... but then again, you may see this finished unit in another post of happenings here in the craft room.
