We’ve been heading to Big Lots lately for a bunch of holiday decor and while we were there the last time I spotted a bookcase I wanted. Not to use for books, but I thought it would be great for our kitchen area. I love our home, but our kitchen is kinda small. I needed more space for our kitchen things along with something that I could use to display some of our decor. The bookcase was perfect! I thought it would be great for the adjacent room, which doubles as an office for myself, but is also where we have our kitchen table. Eventually my office is going to be moved to another room after the baby’s born, but for now it’s where I have it setup. Since we’re always at the kitchen table eating and also using it for crafts, I thought the bookcase would be not just functional but also a way to keep things a bit more organized.
And here’s how it turned out!
A toddler craft book on the top shelf along with a few items we use regularly at the kitchen table for crafts – like colors, glue and paint brushes. Along with another great read about healthy food choices.
A smaller basket to hold some of our other little kitchen knick knacks like snack bags.
A few kid proof items at the bottom…the baskets are holding some of our kitchen towels and table cloths. I also used a basket to hold the girls dishes, they love to help me set the table so all their plastic wear is easily accessible to them.
I think I want to eventually get another bookcase and attach it to this one to give us even more room for organization!
I also bought a smaller bookcase that we have now in our living room, but eventually this is probably going to go into the girls room.
Have you made a stop by Big Lots lately? If you haven’t the holidays are definitely a time where you can find some really cute things for amazing deals.
