On Zane's & my recent trip to Boston we drove down to Providence one night to meet up with one of my besties (& wedding photographer- see her site here). On our way, we stopped at the Ikea in Stoughton. I've had my eye on an expedit bookshelf for a while as they're so stylish & affordable ($129 for their largest size). I thought it would be quite a project to get it together but it wasn't too bad. I love Ikea's instructions.. all I ever look at is the pictures, so they're just right!
It went together quite nicely. Putting it together on the rug was genius. That laminate can chip easily if hit on the edges. We had a great little spot in the corner for it:
It's in Zane's and my little office area & is perfect for holding books, magazines & storage boxes.
The chevron fabric is fitted over a little fold-up table temporarily until I build my own desk (which I have fabulous plans for!). The ghost chair is from Overstock; it was a Christmas present from Zane. Storage boxes from Wal-Mart & Magazine holders from Ikea.
