Cheap and Cheerful Cubes: Four inexpensive bookshelves purchased a hardwarde store were connected with wood glue to form two cubicle units that fit on either side of a radiator, under the windows. The radiator was covered with a piece of plywood patterned with 1" holes to allow for air circulation. This solution made usable, built-in looking finished space out of what would have been a hard to use area.
Boom Boom Bins: Unusual and beautiful, these storage bins were made from wooden drum shells that Dominique stained dark. She created soft upholstered lids for them from plywood circles and sealed the fabrics with acrylic matte varnish to make them easy to keep clean.
Refurbished Bookcase: Jennifer took a used bookcase and remade it by changing out hardware, painting the inside orange and the outside gray to match the decor. She covered the see through door panels with pattered fabric to add some pattern while hiding the clutter stored inside.
