Flickr Find: Catherine’s Before & After Bookshelf
You might remember Catherine’s hallway from a previous Apartment Therapy post. Leslie from AT, San Francisco highlighted 10 refreshing decor ideas from Catherine’s home. While Catherine has since moved (and left her fabulous hallway behind) she hasn’t abandoned her functional style. We spotted her IKEA hack bookshelf using sliding chalkboard doors (made out of MDF) and thought–what a great idea!
The difference between the two photos is quite amazing. The first image feels a bit overwhelming but by simply adding the chalkboard doors–the area feels more controlled. The black partitions break up the space which gives the bookshelf added visual appeal. Catherine can now easily slide the doors over an area (especially if that side needs to be hidden from view). Additionally, the chalkboard makes any workspace playful–which we love to incorporate while logging hours.
