Luckily I came across this on Pinterest...
We have a an empty corner right in front of you when you walk in the door of our house so I thought something like this would be perfect.
First I started by begging my husband to build the shelves. Luckily, he likes doing things like this so it wasn't too hard. I guess I could have done it but my nails...jk. I did however tape it off for him. I know, I know it's hard work but someone had to do it.
After days of slaving away (my husband not me) here they are...
On a side note: we (and by that I mean the talented man in the house) have to still install the wood underneath each shelf to hide the screws and such.
Also, with decorations, they only hold about a quarter of the books we have. oops.
