love the idea of a low wrap-around storage unit in an open floor plan - it helps to create an additional element of seperation between spaces while adding valuable storage all while not adding clutter to the floor plan.
Make your own diy bookshelf out of concrete blocks and wood. A great idea for outside storage too. HAD PLANS ON MAKING A HEADBOARD FOR MY QUEEN BED. THE SHELVES ARE NICE TO HOLD BOOKS, NICKKNACKS, LAMP ETC.. PAINT THE BOARDS AND BRICKS TO GO WITH BEDROOM THEME.
