Expedit - Love the way this popular bookshelf from Ikea was styled to maximize the available space. Magazines filed away, books organized by color, and low baskets to store things you need at an arm's reach but don't want to necessarily see.
Those old bar stools are in perfect condition and all they need is a little face lift! DIY an easy padded seat with foam and printed fabric and paint the legs for an updated look! This whole project will take under a whole hour to complete! http://www.ehow.com/how_5558110_upholster-bar-stools.html?utm_source=pinterest.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=freestyle&utm_campaign=fanpage
Staircases take up a lot of space, so why not use them for storage as well. Imagine each step is a box with a hidden drawer in it still allowing for additional storage or home office space beneath the staircase.
