Love the idea From another pinner: Minimalistic Super Heroes. Well I've been trying to figure out on how to go about my geek quilt. And now I am inspired. It will be cross stitch n patchwork. (It will of course have many other things)
Built in idea for the dining room door! Oh how I love built ins. Ikea Shelves Into Built-in Bookcases :: I really love this. You could turn any room into a library with this idea. And you don't need ikea for it, either.
This is a perfect combo of my two favorite ideas for that space under the stairs leading to the basement. A reading nook AND book storage and shelves . assuming that there is enough space for this there.
