Here's the finished product.
and the befores...
I created the corner shelves with the old shelves from the broken bookcase. All ya need is a few $.78 brackets from Menard's, a power screwdriver, a level and loads of patience.
A hand-me-down sewing machine, which a friend tells me is probably nicer than the sewing machine I use, works as my printing station.
and below serves as my filing station (which I purged biiiig time). These are the tips I used. This approach cut my files down by about 2/3s. So refreshing. Do it!
and it all came together to create this, ahh yay!
Totally high-five worthy, right?
By repurposing my old bookcase and purchasing a few cheap brackets, the look and feel of the room has changed completely. Fancy.
