A Little Makeover ☆ Bookcase Made into Shoe Case
Do you have a shoe storage by the front door? We take off our shoes when we come into our home, so I always like to have a shoe storage by the entrance. Our new home did not come with a shoe storage, so here is my solution: bookcases! I placed wrapping paper on the shelves so that the shoes would not dirty the shelves.
Prior to coming to Mumbai, I made a run to IKEA in Virginia, in the U.S. and bought 2 sets of KVARTAL rails thinking I would like to use a piece of fabric for decoration in the new apartment since KRAVTAL seemed very handy for hanging fabric as a decoration. On the same shopping trip, I also bought TRÅDKLÖVER fabric (shown in the photos), which I saw on display and fell in love with. I decided to use these on our bookshelves to cover the messy look with shoes.
How did I hang the fabric onto the bookcase? Well, here’s my little trick. It’s very simple.
What do you think? You can see my before & after photos of the chalkboard and chevron walls here. I was pleasantly surprised by how much brighter it looks with the white fabric.
