I love to re- use furniture that I have lost use for, my ethos is why buy something new when you can use something old to recreate It yourself? I am always on Pinterest looking for new ideas to spruce up my house and recently came across a cute Nook space made using the Ikea Kallax. Traditionally you buy compartments or drawers to fill them and they are used as a draw or cabinet, after looking through Pinterest I decided to use mine to create a bedside table/ bookcase Nook. It fits perfectly into the corner of our bedroom , yet looks so much more effective than a standard bedside table.
Here was my Pinspiration..
And here is mine, I added candles, pretty books and a wicker basket I even still have my lamp on top like I would have my bedside table. I am still to finish, but I would like to add some pictures scattered on the wall behind or maybe even a mirror. I still have space in the boxes too, I’m thinking about adding a small plant or succulent to one of these areas.
( sorry for my terrible photo quality, bad lighting)
Do you have any Nook spaces around your house?
How have you made ideas from Pinterest or magazines your own?
