    saw the picture you sent and was thinking if you could find an actual bookcase with adjustable shelves that your microwave would fit in to - then you could put decorative stuff on other shelves or baskets to hold your paper work............and because they would be adjustable you have options............ now only to find one to meet your specifications.. :) Love what you did and love the table :)

We love the wall of books and brightly colored pillows in this space.

    I really like the idea of using wall space and framing the window is perfect even if you have a short ceiling. I am assuming this has a window seat with storage inside. I do not like the shades, but I do like this floor.

These handy storage cubbies are both beautiful and functional.
