As you can see in these pictures, we have some cheap laminate shelving leftover from our old basement (pre-renovation). We needed book storage and fast and Ikea came through (of course). After finishing the basement last winter, we reused these shelves for toys and books. It was a great solution for the first year but now we have some time to create a more permanent solution. As you can see, this space is seriously lacking organization!
The main component of this project will be new built-in bookshelves and cabinetry to store toys and books. We have 3 sets of built-ins in our house now and I think these will be fairly similar. I like to keep it consistent throughout the house although we may change up the doors this time around (as we have in the past).
Fortunately we are working with new construction unlike most of our previous projects. Even so, progress won't be too fast because we have some busy weekends ahead but hopefully we can buy most of the supplies this week and get moving soon. Lots more to come on this so stay tuned!
