Today I had the day off work and I spent it with my mum. We had a wonderful day shopping – Target, the mall and Ikea (plus a delicious meatball lunch!) Having the day off also gave me the time to finish a project I have been working on for the past week.
Since renovating the basement, we have some extra bookcases kicking around. I’m not one for throwing furniture out so I decided to repurpose it into some dress-up storage for the kids.
Here’s what I started with:
And now here is what we have for the basement play area:
This was super easy to do. I just added a closet rod (which I got for $5 at Canadian Tire) and some storage baskets from the dollar store. This is going to be so functional. The dress-up clothes are nicely on display (rather than being shoved in bins) and all the accessories are categorizes and sorted (for now anyway!)
I still want to jazz it up a little bit but I’m still unsure how. I’m thinking of painting the sides and adding some curtains. I’ll keep you updated!
Have a great weekend!
